Press Release

In the early hours of Thursday 7th April 2011, hundreds of Israeli troops stormed the village of Awarta near the West Bank city of Nablus and arrested over 100 Palestinian women. The raid was conducted under the premise of searching for those responsible for the killing of a Jewish family last month in the nearby settlement of Itamar. Over the last 4 weeks, the Zionist criminal state has been conducting frequent raids on the village and house to house searches arresting dozens of Palestinian Muslims. Hasan Awad, Awarta's deputy mayor said last week that the Israeli army had arrested 300 men and boys in the village.

 Since 1967, over 10,000 female Palestinian political prisoners have been incarcerated by this cowardly racist state. Dozens continue to be imprisoned, many detained without charge, held in the most deplorable of conditions, and subjected to systematic humiliation and different types of threatening and brutal physical and psychological torture ... They are often held in solitary confinement and deprived of family visits. This March, Fabrizia Falcione, project manager for the Women Human Rights Unit at UN WOMEN described female Palestinian prisoners detained in Israel as being housed in squalid cells infested with insects, cockroaches and rodents and with over-flowing sewage. They are often denied legal representation and medical care as well as being shackled during childbirth.

 Dr. Nazreen Nawaz, Central Media Representative, Hizb ut-Tahrir commented, "This criminal merciless Zionist state has once again displayed its deeply entrenched belief in its right to abduct at will and subject innocent Palestinians to systematic persecution with impunity. This is a state that has demonstrated repeatedly its total disregard for justice, human life, human dignity, or any form of human decency. Its existence continues to be a festering wound in the side of this Muslim Ummah and a major obstacle to peace in the region."

"Despite its open enmity to Muslims, regimes in the Muslim world unashamedly maintain cordial relations with this murderous state that derives pleasure from the humiliation of the daughters of this Ummah. These treacherous Muslim rulers brazenly continue to respect peace treaties with this entity for whom peace and legality are incomprehensible alien terms and whose hands are soaked with the blood of Muslims."

 "For how much longer can the sons of the Egyptian and other Muslim armies of the region bear to witness the suffering of their Palestinian sisters in silence? What dignity can you have to stand behind cowardly leaderships that embrace a state that revels in the dishonouring and misery of your Muslim sisters? How can you face your own mothers, daughters, and wives with your head held high, knowing that your sisters cry for you to liberate them from the clutches of their tormentors and prison walls and you do nothing?"

 "Rise, protect, and liberate your sisters and your brothers. Sever your allegiance to systems and rulers that have brought nothing but betrayal and misery to this Ummah and that have tied your hands and kept you for too long away from your true role as liberators and heroes of the Muslims. Provide your support to the establishment of the Islamic Khilafah "Caliphate" state that will mobilise its army to extinguish once and for all the relentless brutality of this criminal terrorist Zionist state and liberate all occupied Muslim lands. It is the Khilafah "Caliphate" state alone, implementing the laws of Allah(swt) that will return dignity to the mothers and daughters of this Ummah, remove the state of fear in which Muslims have lived in for so long and establish security in the Muslim lands. The Prophet(saw) said, ‘Indeed the Imam (Khalifah) is a shield, from behind whom one would fight, and by whom one would protect oneself.' (Muslim narrated from Al-Araj on the authority of Abu Hurairah)."
