Farouk's 58th Birthday, 8/9/05


In addition to today, August 9th, 2005 marking the  the 60th

anniversary of the US bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 (a somber

and tragic anniversary), today also marks the would be 58th birthday of our

friend, brother and comrade in struggle, Farouk Abdel-Muhti, our stateless

Palestinian brother whose flame continues to burn in our hearts eternally.

As most of you know, we lost Farouk tragically on July 21st of last year to

a fatal heart attack, just three months after his release from the gulags of

the US immigration services (BICE) under the direction of this corrupt and

criminal administration headed by Bush, Cheney and then Attorney General,

John Ashcroft.

Although we do not have an event planned to commemorate this anniversary, we

can all honor Farouk's cherished memory by continuing to fight the just

fight for human rights and social equity all around the world, especially on

behalf of the Palestinian people, workers, and all those who face oppression

in their daily social, political, civil and economic lives.

Let's not forget the example Farouk and others of his stature have set for

us, and continue to carry on this noble work, in their names and in their


Let's also not forget the incredible sacrifices of those still with us

inside and outside of prison, particularly, human rights Attorney Lynne

Stewart, who has been a pillar in this community and has made immeasurable

contributions to the struggle for justice, and is now being made to pay

dearly for her commitment to human rights and social justice.

We also must never forget all those who are unjustly imprisoned and singled

out because of their political beliefs or their ethnic origin, and must

continue to fight on their behalf on the side of justice, no matter what the


May the struggle continue and may justice and light prevail over the

darkness that now surrounds us.


Long Live the People of Palestine!

Long Live Farouk!

With love, sincerity and fraternity,
