"Our goal is to be free and sovereign in our liberated state and in our blessed Jerusalem."

"The weak and strained beats of my heart derive their steadfastness from you, the great people." 

"My eyes, which started to lose their sight, draws light from your solidarity and your support of me." 

"My weak voice takes its strength from your voice that is louder than the warden's voice and higher than the walls."

"I'm one of your sons, among thousands of your sons who are prisoners, still languishing and steadfast in the prisons, waiting for an end to be brought to their plight, their pains and the suffering of their families."

"The doctors told me I became exposed to stroke because of the disorder of my heartbeats, the shortage of sugar and the drop in blood pressure." 

"My body is full of cold and I can't sleep because of the continued pain." 

"But despite the extreme fatigue and chronic headaches, as I move on my chair, I'm trying to summon all my resources to continue on the road till its end." 

"There is no going back, only in my victory, because I'm the owner of Right and my detention is invalid and illegal."

"Do not be afraid for my heart if it will stop, don't be afraid for my hands if they will be paralyzed." 

"I am still alive now and tomorrow and after death, because Jerusalem is moving in my blood, in my devotion and my faith."

On February 19, Samer appeared in Jerusalem civil court. He was gaunt and wheelchair-bound. His lawyer petitioned for his release on bail. He needs emergency medical treatment.

Israeli judicial unfairness rejected him twice before. It did so again. His mother collapsed after the ruling. It condemned him to death.

Dozens gathered outside court supportively. They hoped international attention would help. 

Hundreds rallied outside Ofer Prison. Samer's held there. Soldiers attacked them with tear gas and rubber bullets. At least 18 were injured.
