In the 2-minute video below (filmed by Canadian Friends of Sabeel member), Khalida Jarrar, Palestinian leader, parliamentarian and feminist, speaks to an International Sabeel group in December 2014. Khalida highlights how Israel uses administrative detention as a “preventative” measure to silence any kind of resistance to the occupation and detains Palestinians without charge. In a cruel irony, Khalida herself is now under Israeli administrative detention.

Yafa Jarrar, Khalida’s daughter, will be speaking at the upcoming CFOS Conference “Seeking the Peace of Jerusalem: Overcoming Christian Zionism in the Quest for Justice“. She speaks of her mother below:

“My mother always speaks the truth to power. She is a woman and a loved leader. Also, my mother was recently involved in working on Palestine joining the International Criminal Court. They went after her for all of these reasons.”
