Headline: "Karake: We will not agree to blackmail and will continue to support the prisoners and Martyrs"
     "Director of [PLO] Commission of Prisoners and Released Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake emphasized that the Palestinian leadership will not agree to blackmail and bargaining over everything regarding the matter of the prisoners and Martyrs (Shahids), and the financial support that the leadership provides to them. He also emphasized that the Palestinian leadership will continue to support the prisoners and the [families of] the Martyrs.
Karake said to [independent Palestinian news agency] Donia Al-Watan that the Palestinian leadership will not agree to surrender to the Israeli pressure and its racist laws that are attempting to delegitimize the struggle of the prisoners and Martyrs. He noted that the Israeli occupation is striving to present their struggle as 'crime and terror.'
He added: 'The best response to the occupation's racist laws is to continue to assist the families of the prisoners and Martyrs and to resist their delegitimization.' He emphasized that whatever the pressures may be, the Palestinian leadership will not surrender to them.'
He emphasized that this matter concerns the entire Palestinian people and its struggle for freedom and independence. He noted that it is possible that the Palestinian leadership will turn to the Arab and Islamic states to compensate for the deduction of the money meant for the prisoners and the [families of the] Martyrs. He also noted that there is no choice but to find Arab and Islamic alternatives so as not to leave the families of the prisoners and Martyrs in distress and poverty."
