Fight Back News Service is circulating the following petition and we invite you to sign it and to get it out as broadly as possible.
We demand the immediate release of the Palestinian leader Ahmad Sa’adat, a political prisoner held by Israel. Ahmad Sa’adat is the General Secretary of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and has been elected to the Palestinian Legislative Council. He is opposed to Israeli occupation of Palestine, an occupation supported and financed by the U.S. government. This heroic leader of the Palestinian people faces trial in an Israeli military court. The military court has no legitimate authority to try Ahmad Sa’adat. The prosecutors have no jurisdiction. He faces lawless judges who know the verdict before the trial begins. Ahmad Sa’adat has done nothing wrong. This former school teacher represents the best aspirations of the Palestinian people to be free. Israel has no right to place a Palestinian leader on trial for leading a political group in his own country amongst his own people.
Free Ahmad Sa’adat and all Palestinian political prisoners!
End U.S. aid to Israel!
