More info about Eyad

At last I found some info about Eyad Abu El-Hassan thanks to Nawra Nagam who did a real scoop as Egyptian blogger and had some sort of an interview with Samr Kuntar in Lebanon last week.

Al-kuntar shared with Nawara what he knows about Eyad Abu El-Hassan.

Eyad is from Egyptian Rafah.He was arrested by the IDF in 1989 when he entered Gaza with Ayman Yunis. Both were young men whose ages were 20 years old. They were planning to do some sort of an operation against Israel. They were actng on their own. No one sent them or they knew someone there.

In the jail both young men had to choose which team they will belong to , Fatah or Hamas. Ayman Chose Fatah where as Eyad chose Hamas.

Al-Kuntar believes Ayman was released because he chose Fatah where as till now Eyad is in jail because he chose Hamas.

Whether he chose Hamas or Fatah, Eyad is the repsonsbility of his country. Egypt should work with all possible way to return him back just like Hezbollah did with Al-Kuntar taking in consideration that according to Al-Kuntar all what Eyad did was traspasing the border.

More info about the Egyptian and Saudi POWs in Israel : Eyad Abu El-Hassan

I found more information about the Egyptian POW whom Samir Kuntar mentioned on TV from two weeks ago as a forgotten Egyptian POW.

In statement for Islamonline Samir Kuntar said that there were two Arab POWs in the Israeli Jails , one is from Saudi Arabia and the other is from Egypt.

The name of the Egyptian POW is Eyad Abu El-Hassan.He was captured in 1989 in Gaza after crossing the

borders and trying to join the resistance there. He is currently in the Hadarim Prison , the same prison where Al-Kuntar was held.

Wow since 1989 , that means he has been there for the last 19 years.Strangely he was arrested according to Al-Kuntar with another Egyptian Young man then who was released from many years ago leaving Eyad alone !!

It is sad thing but there is not official confirmation yet from the government despite I believe that the MB members in the people’s assembly in Cairo will raise the issue in the next Parliament session.

Now they feel how it is like

Now the Israelis feel how it is like to have their sons captured and killed without knowing anything about them

Shimon Perez sad at last

for two years.

Now the Israelis feel how it is like to have last minute hope that their sons will come alive from the door house

despite all the indicators that say other wise.

Now the Israelis feel how it is like to see those who they accuse of being war criminals honored in their country and treated like heroes.

Hezbollah managed to return back its POWs and the remaining of its fighters and other Arab fighters that go back for nearly 3 decades ago in POW swap with Israel for the remains of  Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser under the supervision of Germany.

Many Egyptian families since 1967 are waiting to be like the Israeli or the Arab families that restore their sons whether alive or dead from two weeks ago.

Many Egyptian families wish to know the fate of their sons just the families of  Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser, in fact the Israeli families are lucky compared to the Egytpian families that do not know the fate of their sons since 1956.

Samir Kuntar and the Egyptian POW

The free Lebanese POW Samir Kuntar said in an interview for Hezbollah’s  TV Channel Al-Manar that there was an Egyptian POW in the Israeli prison called Eyad Mathour “Sorry If I wrote it wrong” and that that POW was in the prison for the last 22 years !!

Shocking is not it !!?? I thought that Sheikh Mahmoud El-Sawurka was  our last POWs beside our prisoners for

criminal charges in the Israeli prisons.Correction our last POWs were the two students captured by the IDF on the borders during the second intifida and they were exchanged with the high price which was the infamous spy Azzam Azzam.

There are difference between the Egyptians who are in the Israeli prisons for criminal charges and the POWs jailed for political reasons during the Israeli occupation to Sinai. This does not mean that we should abandon our prisoners in the Israeli prisons but we need to know if we have any more POWs there.

22 years I think is very long period. Already I am astonished not because no one mentioned this man in the media but also Sheikh El-Sawurka did not mention him !! Sheikh Sawurka remembers very well Samir.
