Read the following email from Sammi Ibraem:
Yesterday, 26th of January, I attended the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign AGM in London. On entry, I was asked if I was a member and I replied that I wasn’t, but that I was a Palestinian journalist and would like to attend the meeting as an observer. I was given a package and a yellow badge.
However, a few hours later, during the lunch break, while standing in a queue in the cafeteria, I was approached by PSC Vice-Chair Kamel Hawash who again asked if I was a member. I confirmed that I wasn’t, but that I had been granted observer status. Hawash replied that I wasn’t supposed to be there and that I must leave.
I am left perplexed. How can an organisation that claims to lobby on behalf of the Palestinians expel a Palestinian from its annual gathering? I am afraid that, yet again, we are furnished with clear proof that the PSC is now under full Zionist control and that this group is serves now just as a mouthpiece for the British establishment and the Zionist lobby.
Regrettably, the PSC in the U.K. now has very little to do with the Palestinian plight or the Palestinian people.
