Palestinian Footballer Wins Release


Sarsak to be released July 10 unless Israel reneges which very much many happen.

by Stephen Lendman

On June 18, Maan News headlined "Al-Sarsak ends hunger strike in release deal," saying:

On March 19, Sarsak began hunger striking for justice. Israel lawlessly imprisoned him under its Unlawful Combatants Law (UCL).

Without evidence, it's imposed based on "a reasonable basis" to believe Palestinians belong to a hostile group belligerently confronting Israel. Israel calls wanting to live free belligerent and confrontational.

UCL is similar to America's "unlawful enemy combatant" designation. Under America's 2009 Military Commissions Act (MCA), they're called "unprivileged enemy belligerents."

Sarsak threatens no one. He committed no crimes. He's a national hero. He plays for the Palestinian National Football Team.
