Yesterday, finally my mother could visit my father in jail. She woke up at 5 o’clock in the morning and left the house together with my two little brothers who were allowed to join her to visit our father.
About two weeks ago, my father has been transferred to the Alnaquab jail, which is in the desert. Hence it is terribly hot there during the day and cold at night time. My fathers health is not good and he suffers a lot from the heat. He knows that it makes aprt of his punishment. Still, he is full of hope and in high spirits. He is so happy about our effort to collect the fine and very much hopes that we will succeed, thus he will get out of jail as soon as possible. Despite the hardship, he remains steadfast and wants to give hope and strength to all of us: we shall stay strong and not an inch despite the crimes and injustices of occupation.
He is very grateful for those who are supporting him and sends greetings to all of you. He wants to send a message to all and tell about how life as a political prisoner in an Israeli jail.
My brothers where able to actually reach my father (usually the visitors are allowed only to see the inmate through a window and speak to him him). This time, my father was allowed to actually hug them and kiss them. They were all so happy and my father didn’t want to stop caressing them.
They came back at 11 o’clock in the evening. My mother was very exhausted because it was a long and tiresome trip. Still, she was very happy that we were able to come up with the 300 Shekel (which is a lot for us right now), and visit my father.
I am so happy that Israel didn’t succeed in breaking my father. I want to find every possible way to raise the money and make sure that he as well as Hassan and Zaydoon will be released soon. I know, I can’t disappoint my father.
