DID YOU KNOW? today. She has been calling to ask how Shamsul Akmar and friends on board MV Rachel Corrie were. AsH and husband Iain have spent many hours discussing Israel and Palestine with Shamsul. Most times I'd just sit back and enjoy their exchanges. I'm looking forward to the next one, sooner the better.Press Release
The Hijacking of Rachel Corrie and Kidnapping of Passengers and Crew
June 5, Kuala Lumpur: The Perdana Global Peace Organisation (PGPO) demands the unconditional and immediate release of all peace activists, humanitarian aid workers and crew members aboard the Rachel Corrie that was illegally seized and forcibly towed at gunpoint to Ashdod by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF).
The Malaysian delegation consists of Member of Parliament, Nizar Zakaria, PGPO members Shamsul Akmar, Matthias Chang and Ahmad Faizal Azumu as well as two members of the press, Halim Mohamed and Jufri Judin from TV3.
They are joined on board by former United Nations Assistant Secretary General, Dennis Halliday, Nobel Prize Laureate, Mairead Maguire, Derek and Jenny Graham from the Free Gaza Movement and documentary film maker Fiona Thompson.
We call for Malaysians of all faiths and creed to pray for the safety of the kidnapped Malaysians as well as other members of the humanitarian aid flotilla. The people of Malaysia must stand united against injustice and cruelty perpetrated by the Zionist regime against members of the peace flotilla whose only crime is to want to lift the intolerable siege and alleviate the suffering of the innocent and brave people of Gaza.
