The following is from the website of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine:
Comrade Ahmad Sa’adat, the imprisoned General Secretary of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, issued a statement from his prison cell on January 5, 2009, calling for Gaza to be turned into a graveyard for the occupiers and for the Palestinian resistance to unite and strike the occupation everywhere they can in order to defeat the enemy.
General Secretary Sa’adat also called upon the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank to immediately release its political prisoners and for PA President Mahmoud Abbas to make clear where he stands – on the side of the resistance, or on the side of the enemy. The General Secretary’s call was widely distributed by Arab media.
Aziz Dweik of Hamas and Marwan Barghouthi of Fateh, Palestinian national leaders also imprisoned by Israel, also issued statements echoing Comrade Sa’adat’s sentiments, calling for national unity and resistance to the occupier.
A statement from Palestinian political prisoners inside Israeli jails was issued last night, signed to by all national and Islamic forces, calling for steadfastness in front of the Israeli crimes and massacres in Gaza and for unity in the battlefield in the struggle.
