Breaking News : 60 Seconds

First of all Arabic channels have just aired the video of Shalit , those expensive 60 seconds that prove he is a live and fine not to mention healthy

I will work to post it here. Shalit looks fine in fact great unlike the Palestinian and Arab prisoners. Shalit’s message was recorded last September 14, 2009 as the newspaper he was holding showed the date.

Today earlier Israel has released 19 female prisoners for those important 60 seconds, very important 60 seconds which are recorded for sure.

I want to say something , this small deal is very important , yes most of those 19 female prisoners were going to be released sooner next year but the fact that for just 60 seconds , 19 prisoners were released after years of negotiations.

Israel did not win in this deal as much as both Hamas and Omar Soliman did and I say Omar Soliman because this is a bounce for his foreign policies political record.

Here are the complete of the Palestinian female prisoners freed today by the Israeli forces :

  1. Ayat Kisi Original release date: November 18, 2009.

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.

They are studying the case !!

According to this news in Arabic president Mubarak gave his order to the Foreign ministry to study “The exact meaning in Arabic” the POWs Case with its both legal and political parts

This was the statement of Foreign minister in front of the Foreign and Arabic affairs committees in the assembly yesterday

He also said very important statement I believe it should be highlighted

Having Peace with Israel doesn’t mean that we will give up our dignity or rights

This really good and promising but I hope it would go beyond the “study”
