Filladhoo islanders says Israeli agriculturists cannot enter their island

Murshid Abdul Hakeem
Islanders of the Haa Alif Filladhoo have decided to reject the team of Israeli agriculturists invited by the Ministry of Agriculture to conduct some agricultural projects in the island.

The islanders decided as such in a meeting held by the island council with the islanders last evening. Miadhu Daily was informed that the council held the meeting when they received a petition signed by many islanders to reject the Israeli team.

“From those who gathered at the meeting last evening, almost islanders voted to reject the Israeli agriculturist delegation. Two islanders from those present refrained from voting. Those two said that they are not concerned whether the Israelis visit the island or not. But as for the others, all of them voted to reject the Israelis from entering the island,” an islander informed Miadhu Daily.

The islanders of Filladhoo said that they are in no need of any help whatsoever from the state of Israel.

“The first thing they should do is to stop slaughtering our brothers in Palestine. How can they aid us in anything when they are slaughtering and shedding the blood of our very brothers? If the State Minister Shafia has an island she can take them there. And the islanders believe that it will be even better if Shafia moves to the state of Israel and live there,” the islanders said.

Meanwhile, Deputy President of Adhaalath Party, Dr. Mauroof Hussein urged “all islands to reject the Zionists from Israeli Intelligence, Mossad, who are reported to be visiting Maldives on 26th of this month garbed as agriculturists.”

Dr. Mauroof urges all islands to reject visiting Zionists garbed as agriculturists

Deputy President of Adhaalath Party, Dr. Mauroof Hussein has urged “all islands to reject the Zionists from Israeli Intelligence, Mossad, who are reported to be visiting Maldives on 26th of this month garbed as agriculturists.”
Dr. Mauroof said that the party was informed that these Zionists who are to visit Maldives in the guise of agriculturists. He said that these jews will be going to Haa Alif Filladhoo and Maafahi. He said that the government devised a plan to make all councils of the islands that they want to visit to invite them prior to their visit so as to tackle the problem of any protests and demonstrations that their visit might ignite in the islands.
Dr. Mauroof said that this visit of the Mossad intelligence agents to Maldives is spearheaded by the Minister of State for Ministry of Agriculture, Shafia.
Furthermore, Dr. Mauroof called all islanders to be cautious of this visit of the Zionist Jews. Dr. Mauroof also explained the merciless policy of occupation, oppression and massacre being carried out against Muslims of the Middle East by the Jewish occupational forces who have adopted Zionism, which is a racist ideology.
Dr. Mauroof said that his party is against establishing ties with only Zionists, whom he said purely follows a racist and cruel ideology, and not all disbelievers.

Israel major organ harvesting center

RAMALLAH: The Palestinian Minister of Detainees and Ex-detainees Issa Qaraqi’ on Sunday accused Israel of harvesting parts from the bodies of dead Palestinian martyrs without the consent of their families.

Qaraqi’ said during the national day of Palestinian campaign to retrieve martyrs’ bodies said that “Israel is the major harvesting and trading centre in the world.”

The minister said that Israel holds the remains of Palestinian martyrs “to conceal the crimes it committed against the martyrs bodies and to punish their families.” “Holding of the martyrs’ remains for many years cats doubts and accusations that Israel assassinated them after detention or harvested their organs,” the minister said.

He added that “Israel is holding the remains of 338 Arab and Palestinian fighters in the secret Israeli cemeteries known as the Cemeteries of Numbers.”

Qaraqi' added that the Israeli authorities holding them in four cemeteries: One on the Israel-Lebanon-Syria border, two in the Jordan Valley and the fourth near Tiberias Lake.

On December 2009, the chief Israeli pathologist and the director of the Institute of Forensic Medicine at Abu Kabir, Professor Yehuda Hiss, admitted of harvesting parts from the bodies of dead Palestinians without the consent of their families.

Hiss said that he and doctors who worked under him took parts from the dead skins, their corneas and heart valves in the 90’s for transplantation. He also admitted that the same parts were taken from dead Israelis for the same purpose.

Hiss’ remarks came in an interview with Nancy Sheppard-Hughes, a professor of anthropology at the University of California-Berkeley who tracks the organ trade worldwide. The one-hour interview was recorded in 2000 as part of Sheppard-Hughes’ study at Abu Kabir and was broadcasted by the Israeli Channel 1 television on Friday night.

The report said that Sheppard-Hughes decided to publish the interview after the leading Swedish daily Aftonbladet reported on August of the same year that Israeli soldiers killed Palestinians in order to trade in their organs.

The Israeli pathologist said that “the skins were taken from the bodies and transmitted to Hadasah hospital in Jerusalem under the request of Israeli army to be transplanted to sounded soldiers and in case of disaster.”

On last July, the head of Palestinian Civil Affairs Commission Hussein Al-Sheikh said that Israel will hand over the remains of 84 fighters to the Palestinian Authority within days.

Israeli security sources confirmed that talks on the matter have been held but that no agreement had been reached.

“El Al will be a Trojan horse for Maldives”: George Galloway

The commencement of flights by Israeli national airline El Al to the country will be “a Trojan horse for the Maldives,” warns controversial British politician George Galloway.

In a video message aired at the Adhaalath party national congress that concluded last night, the former MP said that he was “deeply shocked” by the government’s decision to authorise the operation of Israeli national carrier in the Maldives on December 13.

“At a time when Arab doors are closing on Israel as a result of the Arab revolution, the idea that the Maldives, an entirely Muslim country, would open the door for El Al, the Israeli national carrier, and bring the Israeli flag into their country, and bring the Mossad and all the attendants who will come with it, is just absurd to me,” said Galloway.

He added that Israeli flights would be “a Trojan horse for the Maldives.”

“You will be bringing Israel into your country at a time when most civilised people are trying to get Israel out of their country,” he continued.

“So I very much hope the people of the Maldives will rally behind the campaign to stop this infiltration of the country by this Zionist settler state. The blood of the Palestinian people for 63 or 64 years now is on this project and nobody should want to share in this blood.”

In April this year, the religious conservative Adhaalath party threatened to terminate its coalition agreement with the ruling Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) in protest if Israeli flights are allowed to commence flights to the country.

Iran opposed to politicization of the human rights issue

The United Nations Human Rights Council has recently designated former Maldives foreign minister Ahmed Shaheed as the Special Rapporteur to investigate the human rights situation in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Iran has no problem with Mr. Shaheed, and the Iranian government is ready to invite him to visit Iran so he can familiarize himself with the country’s latest scientific and technological achievements and the level of the people’s participation in society. But if he wants to come to Iran as a UN Special Rapporteur, he will not be welcomed by the Iranian people and government.

From Iran’s perspective, the decision to appoint a UN Special Rapporteur in this case clearly shows that the UN has adopted a politicized approach toward the human rights issue, which is by no means accepted by the Iranian government.

Iran’s official policy is opposed to any effort to use the human rights issue as political leverage because such an approach runs contrary to the true nature of human rights.

Over the past few decades, the Islamic Republic of Iran has played an effective role at international conferences and meetings on human rights. Moreover, Iran has submitted numerous reports on the human rights situation in the country to the UN Human Rights Council. There is also a good deal of interaction between Iran and the governments of influential countries, such as Denmark and Japan, on the issue of human rights.

Iran plans to engage more in this area, and has positively cooperated with various governments on the issue, with Denmark being the latest example. A Danish delegation recently made a trip to Iran and met with officials tasked with addressing the issue of human rights and a number of Iranian scholars. They were surprised by Iran’s Islamic ideology, which places emphasis on the rights of various classes of people, including women and children.

Therefore, the new wave of political pressure imposed on Iran, in the form of various UN resolutions, is totally unacceptable and unjustified, and the Iranian government cannot agree to further cooperation under such political pressure, and neither would any other government in the world.

Based on the general policy of the Islamic Republic of Iran, which has been officially announced by the parliament’s Human Rights Committee, the Iranian government is not ready to allow the designated UN Special Rapporteur to visit the country because it is against the will of the Iranian people.

Iran’s message to the UN and the international community is that the country does not do anything under Western political pressure. This also applies to Iran’s nuclear program, which has made numerous breakthroughs despite all the pressure and sanctions imposed on the country.

Defending human rights based on the pure principles of Islam is regarded as one of the main duties of the Iranian government.

In line with this policy, the Iranian parliament is also trying to improve its position on the human rights issue, and Iranian MPs will try to increase the level of their diplomatic communication with their counterparts in other parliaments of the world. This policy can show the world the true picture of human rights in Iran.

MP Zohreh Elahian is the chairperson of the Majlis Human Rights Committee.

Iran parliament set to ban entry of Dr Shaheed UN Special Rapporteur on Iran

Tehran Times Political Desk

TEHRAN - The Human Rights Committee of the Iranian parliament has decided to take measures to prohibit the entry of the newly appointed United Nations Special Rapporteur on Iran, MP Mohammad-Karim Abedi announced on Sunday.

On June 17, the UN Human Rights Council appointed former Maldivian foreign minister Ahmed Shaheed as Special Rapporteur on human rights situation in Iran.

On March 24, 2011, the UN Human Rights Council voted to appoint a special rapporteur to look into the situation in Iran.

In a U.S.-backed resolution adopted with 22 votes in favor, seven against and 14 abstentions, the 47-member council said the rapporteur would report to both the council and to the General Assembly.

Speaking to reporters on Sunday, Abedi said during the most recent meeting of the committee, it was emphasized that this person should not be allowed to enter the country.

Abedi, deputy chairperson of the Majlis Human Rights Committee, also said that the United States, Britain, and the Zionist regime are the greatest violators of human rights, and it would be better if the UN look into their human rights cases.

In addition, he pointed to the UN Fact Finding Mission’s report on war crimes committed by Israel during its 2008-2009 military offensive in Gaza, saying the UN failed to deal with the Zionist regime.

The Iranian lawmaker also said that the United States and Britain have dark human rights record as well.

MP Zohreh Elahian also said that Iran will not allow the UN Special Rapporteur to carry out his mission in the country.

Elahian, chairperson of the Majlis Human Rights Committee, made the remarks during a speech at the open session of the Majlis on Sunday.

The Islamic Republic of Iran full well knows the hidden agenda behind the human rights resolution that were adopted against it and will not bow to political pressure being exerted by certain other countries, she stated.

Elahian also said Iran has respect for the appointed rapporteur, who is a Muslim, but Iran is ready to welcome him as a tourist
