When one people is oppressed, all of us are oppressed. What you do to any one of these you do to me, Jesus said. So we are all Palestinians. This is about a prisoner in America fighting for the Palestinians:

  Dr. Al-Arian Suspends Hunger Strike After 8 Weeks

  VIRGINIA — Yesterday, on the 57th day of his hunger strike, Dr. Sami 
Al-Arian suspended his fast, at the urging of his family, friends and 
supporters. Dr. Al-Arian, who has lost more than 40 pounds, began the 
hunger strike on March 3 to protest continued harassment and abuse of 
power by the Justice Department. Early last week, as his blood pressure 
and blood sugar reached dangerously low levels, Dr. Al-Arian collapsed 
and lost consciousness at his cell in Hampton Roads Regional Jail and 
was then examined by a doctor. Dr. Al-Arian drank no water for the 
first 18 days of his fast. During his hunger strike, he was moved to 
five different facilities a half dozen times.

  Dr. Al-Arian was supposed to have been released on April 7. Since 
April 14, he has been in total segregation, and living under harsh 
conditions. He is not allowed any visitors and is given only two phone 
calls a month. Though officials at Hampton Roads Regional Jail told Dr. 
Al-Arian his conditions would improve and he would be moved into the 
general population as soon as he began eating again, this has proven to 
be a lie. Dr. Al-Arian remains in segregation although he has been 
cleared medically. Please see the Action Alert below to demand that he 
be treated humanely.

  “Today Dr. Sami Al-Arian is an internationally recognized political 
prisoner in America Over the last two decades, his legendry struggle 
for the independence of Palestine has included five years of 
incarceration, which continues, and two extended hunger strikes for 
sixty days and fifty-seven days, respectively,” said Dr. Agha Saeed, 
chair of the American Muslim Taskforce on Civil Rights and Elections. 
“Just as Dr. Martin Luther King and Malcolm X symbolized the struggle 
for human rights in the fifties and sixties, Dr. Sami Al Arian has come 
to symbolize the current struggle for human rights. I am one of those 
who had beseeched him to end his hunger strike and I am personally 
indebted to him for accepting our request.”

  “Sami Al-Arian has put his own life on the line for human dignity, 
freedom, justice and peace,” said Muhammad Salim Akhtar, chairman of 
American Muslim Alliance Midwest Region. “His resilience at the cost of 
his own physical and mental suffering has become a source of strength 
for people of conscience and high morals to unite across borders.”
