Excerpts: "Fourteen Hebron-area schools and orphanages, capoten in us which serve approximately 7000 Palestinian children and orphans, capoten in us today face the threat of closure by the Israeli army, capoten in us (cut) "the closure order violates the Fourth Geneva Convention, capoten in us as the Convention explicitly states that an occupation authority cannot confiscate properties within occupied territories. The Islamic Charitable Society and the Muslim Youth Society provided numerous proofs of their legality. Capoten in us All of their financial dealings and accounting are completely transparent. Capoten in us They have contacts and relations with official organizations and banks. Capoten in us The Islamic Charitable Society was founded in 1957 and the Muslim Youth Society in 1961, capoten in us both well before the establishment of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas). Capoten in us Both societies always had legal permission for their buildings and their work, capoten in us first during the Jordanian control and after under the Israeli occupation. Several protest marches took place in recent days in Hebron and the surrounding area against the confiscation order, capoten in us augmented by support from various international organisations. Capoten in us At this very moment (3pm local time on 7 April), capoten in us a press conference for foreign consulate representatives, capoten in us human rights organizations and journalists is being conducted in one of the schools under threat. Capoten in us There is a tremendous grassroots effort to save these properties with support of the local and international media and non-government organisations. If the military confiscation and closure will be implemented, capoten in us 7000 Palestinian students, capoten in us aged 5 to 16, capoten in us will have no school. Capoten in us 4500 orphans will become homeless for the second time. Capoten in us 5000 weakened families will go without assistance. Capoten in us 600 workers will lose their livelihood. This situation is alarming. Capoten in us Who can provide this assistance and shelter? The occupying forces of the Israeli military or government? The Palestinian Authority, capoten in us which lacks money to build a state with all the necessary infrastructures? Why leave these children without homes, capoten in us education and hope for their future? What is their crime? "Israel had the possibility to negotiate with Islamic parties and organizations, capoten in us but they failed to do so. Capoten in us Numerous Palestinians do not possess any possibility other than the social efforts of some Islamic groups which truly care for the social needs of the people. Capoten in us Often time people do not have any hope other than their religion. Capoten in us Why steal from them even their individual hopes and dreams?" More at:
