A statement by Kairos Palestine, which describes itself as the Palestinian Christian voice, said it “expresses its support for the just and humanitarian demands of prisoners – children, women and the sick – and their families.”
It said “Kairos deems it intolerable to see prisoners engaged in an all-out hunger strike to obtain basic rights and humanitarian demands that should be granted to them as human beings and are applicable to all under international law.”
Remember, the “basic rights” being demanded under “international law” include a larger choice of cable TV channels, access to their own kitchens and free university education.
The statement said: “We view all prisoners as human beings whose dignity is granted by God; no man or occupying power has the right to deprive them of what was granted by God. The norm is freedom and a just peace for them and the entire Palestinian people. It is unjust for the majority of a people to experience detention and imprisonment in occupation prisons because they demand their freedom and dignity.”
Hold on. The Palestinians were just getting to the point of falsely claiming that a million of them have been arrested and detained, but Kairos is now saying that a majority of them – meaning, presumably, more than half of the 4 million Arabs under PA control (or perhaps more than half of the 5.6 million Arabs in Israel and the territories, or maybe even more than half of the 10 million “Palestinians” worldwide) have been arrested by Israel or have been incarcerated in “occupation prisons.”
Kairos is claiming between 2 and 5 million Arabs having been arrested by Israel!
It gets better:
In the name of the humanitarian values espoused by every religion, and in the name of Christian values and teachings, we express our support for prisoners as human beings who possess dignity granted to them by their creator. We support them and demand their freedom; we support their humanitarian demands.
Terrorists must be freed – it is a “Christian value.” This way they can kill more people who can turn the other cheek as they are being stabbed!
And now that we understand Kairos math and its alleged Christian morality to free terrorists, we are introduced to Kairos logic on the validity of the hunger strikers’ aims:
Prisoners risk their lives with this demanding step of a hunger strike, but it also proves that their demands and stance are justified and sound.
The very fact that they are on a pseudo-hunger strike (which includes vitamins, sugar and salt) is proof that they are justified in wanting better TV channels!
The biggest irony is that Kairos, which traffics in lies, pretends in its own slogan that it tells the truth.
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
