Dear Friends,

 

Anti-war activist Shadi Mdanat was arrested in front of his house in the southern city of Karak, Jordan, around eight on Tuesday night of April 1, 2003, by a group of Jordanian intelligence officers who are keeping him incommunicado until this moment.

The arrest of Shadi Mdanat for his anti-war activities comes at a time when dozens of Jordanian activists who were arrested in the last few weeks are being released, including Naser Biqaeen, another activist from Karak who spent eleven days in solitary confinement in jail cell number 67 in the prison of the Jordanian Intelligence Division, and many others, like activists Tayseer Shrouf and Naser Sarisi.

Nevertheless, Mdanat’s arrest is a move that runs contrary to the turnabout that the regime has been performing in the last few days in the direction of:

1) Halting the waves of arbitrary and unconstitutional arrests that were going to affect hundreds of activists whose names were compiled in a list that the Jordanian Intelligence Division has compiled for this purpose, according to a senior officer who said something to that effect during the interrogation of an activist

2) Releasing most of the first batch of those to be arrested which included about thirty activists who were picked up in the last few weeks, and who would have been incarcerated much longer had Iraq not held steadfast, and had there not been local and international campaigns for their release

3) Partially loosening the heavy hand of the authorities over the Jordanian street which is infinitely opposed to aggression on Iraq. This is being done to release the pent-up anger in preparation for absorbing the street completely. Yet that does not mean that transgressions on the constitutional rights of Jordanians will cease, as happened for example when dozens of students were arrested following pro-Iraq protests in the University of Mou’ta, when tear gas canisters were fired during protests on the campus of the Jordanian University, and finally, when Shadi Mdanat was arrested while hanging out in front of his home in the evening.

Still, the limited conciliatory moves are accompanied by a partial shift in the rhetoric of the Jordanian regime in the direction of displaying concern for Iraq, while American and British forces continue to languish on Jordanian soil. But even that partial shift is constrained a great deal, as for example when TV anchor Assaf Shoubaki was recently prevented from reading the news because he said: “Seventy Iraqis martyred during a coalition raid..”, instead of what the script said, which was: “Seventy Iraqis died during a coalition raid..”!

Nevertheless, the partial turnabout from the usual repressive measures and in the rhetoric of the regime can be attributed primarily to two factors:

1) the steadfastness of Iraqi resistance, which left the regime quite embarrassed before Iraq and the Jordanian street after hosting American and British troops on Jordanian soil

2) the rude awakening of the Arab street in general, and the Jordanian street in particular, after a very long nap.

Thus, the release of many arrested activists in the last few days comes in this particular political context, which does not imply at all that oppression will be abandoned as a matter of principle as we can see from the arrest of Shadi Mdanat.

That is why we need to raise our voices high: NO to the conniving of Arab regimes against Iraq!

NO to the violation of the constitutional rights of Arab citizens!

Freedom to activist Shadi Mdanat!

Adelaide Institute asked Dr Serge Thion briefly to comment on the following

AI: How long can a non-existent state exist, a la Palestine?

ST: As long as it may impose itself through the use of force.

 

AI: Is the impossibility of a two-state solution a result of Jewish racism and brutality?

ST: The basic reason is that you cannot convince people you've evicted by force to willingly concede your are the rightful owner. Palestine belongs to Palestinians. Fullstop. Not to any Russian, Pole, Yemeni, or native of Brooklyn.

AI: So, co-existence is thus an injustice because it would justify Jewish theft of land not their own? Did Balfour promised something that did not belong to him?

ST: Not only Balfour and the successive English governments. Balfour had also promised to the Arabs that the Jewish National Home would not harm their interests. When it did they revolted. And the hypocrite Britons repressed them. The United Nations had no right to give the land to foreigners. It gave Namibia to the Namibians, not to the Danes or the Kamtchatkaians...

AI: Since when does a court of justice sanction someone stealing land with raw brutality?

ST: This theft was done by force. The only redress is to abolish the theft and returne the stolen good to its legitimate possessors, the Palestinian people.

 

AI: Are you saying then, that the only just solution is that the Jews leave the land, just as 900 years ago the Crusaders left Palestine?

ST: Yes; of course. The West will oblige by taking them back. The destruction if Israel will be done by the Jews themselves, as they will progressively realize they just cannot live in an area where they managed to have everybody hate them. Life will slowly become unbearable for them there and the drift has already started towards the US and Europe.

[NB: AI: Europe already has extensive so-called 'Holocaust' laws that extends special protection to Jews.]

 

AI: Would a presence of the Jewish State in Palestine mean a condoning the crimes upon which this presence rests?

ST: Of course, as in the past centuries, Jews may live in Palestine, as long as they respect the local population. The question is purely one of political power. But Jews have spilled too much blood to be welcomed to stay.

 

 

 

 

As far as I am concerned, I was held in solitary confinement for a week

where I was disconnected from the world completely. I was not allowed any

access to papers or news of any kind, or allowed to speak to other

prisoners. I was part of about two dozen activists held around the same

time I was too. Hundreds more were soon to follow as we learned from

trustworthy sources. This was to be part of the campaign to silence the

Jordanian street. The steadfastedness of Iraq and the near-uprising of the

Jordanian street just turned the tables upside down and got us released as

well as put an end to the arrest campaign.

 Letter from Ibrahim Alloush

31 March 2003

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters

Thanks to you all for your fruitful efforts to release me and to release all those imprisoned in the jails of the Jordanian regime which finds itself today trapped in the dilemma of supporting the American aggression on Iraq which it wrongfully thought would succeed in a matter of days

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters

I've been arrested because I said there are American bases in Jordan taking part in the aggression against Iraq. Interrogation focused on my declarations to that effect on BBC, Assabeel, and the Free Arab Voice I was told that I will be going back to jail very quickly if I said there ARE American bases in Jordan.

Thus, instead of sending letters to Jordanian embassies worldwide, we all need to insist that there are American bases in Jordan partaking in the aggression on Iraq. That is what we need to concentrate on American bases in Jordan and their role in the aggression on Iraq is the point, not getting me released or anybody else.

That is what you can do to help. I've spent one week in solitary confinement where I knew nothing of the world swirling around me.

I've only been able to see the face of the sky from a narrow hole in the roof of the jail cell into which I walked shackled and blindfolded. I've only been released a few hours ago, but I don't want you to act in solidarity with me.

At this moment in particular I am neither Palestinian nor Jordanian, but Iraqi, from the head to the toes. Had the aggression been perpetrated against Mauritania, I would have been a Mauritani just as much.

Don't get me wrong! I appreciate very much what you have done, what have said and what you have written on my behalf.

But I am really nothing compared to the militants who have given decades of their lives in Zionist jails and the jails of Arab regimes. More importantly I am but a small drop in the sea of Iraqi resistance.

I beseech you to forget about me. What is important now is to speak of American bases in Jordan. So are you up to the challenge?!

Just a quick message from jail cell number 66 of the Jordanian Intelligence Division

The Imprisonment of Ibrahim Alloush

Fredrick Töben

Amman, Jordan,

27 March 2003

On Sunday, 23 March 2003, Dr Ibrahim Alloush, 40, economics lecturer at Petra University, and media co-ordinator of the Association Against Zionism and Racism (AZAR), a cultural association registered with the Ministry of Culture, received a call from the Jordanian Intelligence Department at Jandaweel, which is situated near the Medical Centre in Amman.

In the past Dr Alloush had received many such calls, and direct invitations to appear at the office were for him routine. Sometimes he would stay there for half a day, sometimes till late at night, but always he would return home.

Sunday's call from the Intelligence Department left him with a sense of finality. In anticipation he said to his wife, Maha, who is seven months pregnant with their first child, "I will go to them tomorrow, but I don't know when or if I will return this time."

The next morning, 23 March, Ibrahim Alloush headed off for Jandaweel with the sense that perhaps he will become another Jordanian Intelligence Department statistic, just one of the many hundreds of dissident Jordanian voices that disappear for months on end. It is all the more hurtfull for the loved ones who are left behind because Jordanian family ties are strong.

Fear of economic and professional uncertainty are created to discipline dissident voices, and so it is, in Jordan, but not only in that country. The problem is that Jordan, like many so-called western democracies, advises its citizens that they are, indeed, free to express their thoughts. After all, democracy rules in this Hashemite Kingdom wedged west and east between Israel and Iraq, north and south between Syria and Saudi Arabia. It is not an envious position to be in because the volatility of Middle East politics impacts directly upon all Jordanians where the local currency is stronger than the US dollar. That Jordan does not have its own oil production is a result of politics. Were Jordan to begin pumping oil out of its soil, then because it lies lower than the other oil-producing countries, it would directly drain those oil resourses, much in what Kuwait did before Iraq invaded it to put a stop to this sideways drilling for oil.

Revisionist Conference and Terrorists

Last year Dr Ibrahim Alloush was invited to address the 14th IHR Revisionist conference in California. However, because he supports the Palestinians and 'human bombs', he was disinvited owing to the prevailing current self-censorship climate in democratic America!

The 'terrorist' hysteria so conveniently justified by the 11 Spetember 2001 tragedy, had a ripple effect that even engulfed valiant US Revisionists. Few, however, have made the link between, and for Israel disastrous, UN International Conference Against Racism , held at Durban during August-September 2001. Israel's name was blackened and condemned and shamed so thoroughly that even the USA had difficulty being associated with it. Australia's leading Zionist, Jeremy Jones, wished to present a paper on 'Hate on the Internet' wherein he was going to deal with the Fredrick Töben case, that horrible Australian Revisionist who had spent seven months in a German prison and also faced court action in Australia for disputing the Holocaust myth. Jones failed in his quest to whip up any support for his nonsense claims. The victims of racism knew that the Zionists were wrongly pulling out the victim card because what the racist Zionist state is doing to the Palestinians speaks for itself.

Now after the Durban conference ended on 7 September, Palestine loomed larger than ever on the Middle East map. All this resurgence of hope for Palestine came crashing down four days after the conference with the 11 September 2001 alleged 'terrorist' attack on the WTC and Pentagon.

Four days after the 11 September 2001 attack, the White House declared its war for freedom and democracy and against terrorism. The Palestinian problem became a terrorist problem, and the suicide bombers were relegated away from martyrdom and labelled terrorists.

Zionist-Israel re-joined the club of the self-declared 'righteous' and its war criminal leader became again respectable.

The Revisionists who protested at the IHR's banning of Dr Alloush, crying foul censorship, were ignored, such as Serge Thion — whose own peregrinations in North Africa and South East Asia made him a target of retribution by the intolerant who tolerate no tolerance. And so the IHR management implied through its action that it was deemed to be unwise to bring a Semite from Jordan to a conference where the major thrust of presentations is debunking the Holocaust myth.

Freedom Fighters protest

The move to declare the 'human bomb' phenomenon a crime against humanity gained some ground. In western democracies Jewish-Zionist groups attempted to water down such actions as cowardly, not at all befitting a civilised society that should shy away from targeting innocent civilians. Tell that to the Iraqi people who have suffered a decade-long period of economic sanctions; tell that to the Palestinian Freedom Fighters who are not listened to as they enter their sixth decade of occupation by the Jewish-Zionists political entity now known as the Zionist, apartheid, racist state of Israel.

Dr Ibrahim Alloush is just one of a long line of Freedom Fighters who have focused on the essentials that mak the Middle East such a volatile and explosive region. The Holocaust myth is the foundation upon which the Zionist/racist state of Israel rests.

The President of AZAR, engineer Leith Shubeilat, is also one of Jordan's major opposition figures. He participated in the protest meeting that I attended on Tuesday, 25 March 2003, where I addressed the gathering, making the following three points:

1. Not all Australians are supporting our Prime Minister's choice to send Australian troops to Iraq;

2. The attack on Iraq is a racist Anglo-American-Zionist motivated attack that attempts to deflect from the Palestinian tragedy;

3. The Zionist, apartheid and racist state of Israel must be dismantled. Such a view-point is, of course, nothing new for the Arabic-speaking peoples of the Middle East.

AAZR attempts to expose Zionist imperialism, and an important aspect of Dr Alloush's work has been to battle the Arabic-speaking intellectuals who wish to maintain the myth of the Holocaust. That the Holocaust myth is central to the liberation of Palestine is not understood by many, and Dr Alloush has even to battle with the confusion of terms that accompanies the Holocaust myth. The charge of antisemitism is accepted as accurate by many academics who are themselves Semites!

Wife and Family

Still, all this uphill battle leaves Ibrahim Alloush with even more determination to see it through to the end. And he is fortunate because he has one tremendously vital pillar of support — Maha, his wife.

Mrs Alloush says the current crisis in Iraq is galvanising into something that the planners of the military invasion of Iraq perhaps did not calculate — the distrust of the USA and its concept of freedom and democracy. She says that President Bush's rhetoric is way ahead of the reality that prevails in the Middle East, and even now in the USA. It is evident by the way the once American-worshipping world has been turned away from credible media institutions such as BBC, CNN and NBC. The Arabic-speaking Aljazeera based in Qatar ( literally 'The Island' but politically a rallying call for unity among the Arabic-speaking peoples) is the major source of accurate and objective information about what is happening in Iraq. It must hurt the Zionist-controlled media to have to take news items from Aljazeera.

Though the President of Iraq, Saddam Hussein, is accused of possessing weapons of mass destruction, says Mrs Alloush, the peoples of the Middle East, know full well that it is the Anglo-American-Zionist Forces that are using weapons of mass destruction against the Iraqi people. The war is thus not a war of liberation from tyranny but rather a war of occupation. The Arabic-speaking peoples know this and resent any occupation force in the region. Like in any family where squabbles are a natural phenomenon, the Arabic-speaking peoples are sensing a common bond with the Iraqi peoples. Their own score-setting is pushed aside for the greater threat facing them: the extension of Israel — Greater Israel!

It is now obvious to all Middle East peoples, says Mrs Alloush, that if Iraq falls, then Syria and Iran will be next. The it will be those countries that currently have 'tame' US-friendly regimes. After all, this planned colonisation has been openly and widely published and so is not a secret.

Mrs Alloush will visit her husband for the first time tomorrow, and had I been allowed, I would have accompanied her. Unfortunately the first visits are only for family members — wife, mother, etc. The procedure in obtaining permission to visit a prisoner is obviously a tortuous bureaucratic nightmare for which at least a week is needed, if not longer. In this context I was pleased that my press accreditation came through within the day.

Mrs Alloush remains calm and focused on her other tasks that will face her as she becomes a mother. It is good to see her father is there to comfort her, and all I could do for her before I departed was to wish her all the best in these trying times.
