Issa Karake
Issa Karake - Director of the Prisoners' Affairs Authority and former PA Minister of Prisoners' Affairs.
In 2014, Abbas changed the Ministry of Prisoners' Affairs, subordinate to the PA government, into the Supreme National Authority of Prisoners' Affairs, subordinate to the PLO. This was done to evade pressure from international donors over the PA's payment of salaries to terrorist prisoners. Instead of paying terrorist salaries out of the PA general budget, to which international donors send their funding, the new PLO institution pays the salaries and is responsible for prisoners' affairs. Karake was appointed head of the new Authority of Prisoners' Affairs.
Karake remains a member of the PA Parliament.

Minister Karake said he is very impressed whenever the brave prisoners’ mother, fighter Um Diya Al-Agha, speaks. We consider [her] to be the mother of all prisoners because she is always present at solidarity events for our prisoners... Secretary of the central Khan Yunis [Fatah] branch, Dr. Haidar Al-Qudra said in his speech: ‘It is a great honor for us all to meet today in a home that, as everyone has witnessed, has contributed a great deal and continues to contribute, [to be] in the lion’s den of a fighter-family that has great national credit by virtue of Martyrs (Shahids), wounded and fighter-prisoners.’ [...] At the end of the solidarity vigil [Fatah’s] central Khan Yunis branch bestowed the family of the two prisoners honorary gifts: a picture of the two brave prisoners, Diya and Muhammad Al-Agha and a plaque of ‘resolve’ for the fighter-sister, mother of two prisoners.”

     “At the end of discussions at a popular conference held yesterday [Oct. 9, 2013] in El-Bireh, [participants said that they] lay responsibility on the Israeli occupation government for the sick prisoners’ health and for any ramifications [resulting] from additional Martyrs (Shahids) falling among them…
The President [Rami Hamdallah]’s representative, Fatah Central Committee member and Commissioner for Mobilization and Organization Mahmoud Al-Aloul, and [PA] Minister of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake spoke at the conference …
Al-Aloul noted that there are more than 150 prisoners sick with chronic and serious diseases due to the unhygienic conditions in which they live, over-crowding in cells that contributes to the spread of contagious diseases, the poor quality of food and drink, their exposure to torture and means of psychological pressure, and the use of prisoners as guinea pigs by prison doctors, [all] part of a systematic policy…
Karake blamed Israel of slowly killing the prisoners. He noted that most of the sick [prisoners] became sick inside the prisons, after being imprisoned, and [that they] did not receive medical examinations or treatment.
Karake said that Israel is a ‘criminal’ state that uses organized terror against the prisoners in its prisons.”

PA Minister: Israel “kills anyone” who expresses “solidarity” with Palestinians 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 4, 2013
In Turkey, senior political officials attended a communal meal to break the Ramadan fast with senior PA officials. Among the PA officials were: PA Minister of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake, PA Mufti of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Territories Sheikh Muhammad Hussein, Palestinian Ambassador to Turkey Nabil Ma’arouf, Israeli Arab MP Muhammad Barakeh, and Chairman of the Prisoners’ Club Qadura Fares. Released Palestinian prisoners who were deported to Turkey also attended. The following are excerpts of the conversation at the meal, reported in the official PA daily:
     “[PA] Minister of Prisoners’ Affairs [Issa Karake] praised the sacrifice of the Marmara ship Martyrs (Shahids) who fell defending Palestine, and he wished the wounded a speedy recovery. In addition, he noted that the Israeli occupation kills anyone who tries to express solidarity with our Palestinian people. He also referred to the suffering of the prisoners in the occupation’s prisons and noted that there is no prisoner in the world who serves a 30 year prison term, except for the Palestinian prisoner…
[PA] Ambassador [to Turkey Nabil] Ma’arouf noted that one of the main issues that concerns us is the prisoners’ issue, because 4,700 prisoners are still wasting away in the Israeli occupation’s prisons, and most spend over half of their lives inside a detention center. That doubles their families’ suffering.” From WAFA, official PA news agency

Note: Marmara refers to the Turkish ship “MV Mavi Marmara” that tried to break the Israeli blockade on the Gaza Strip in May 2010 – The “Gaza Freedom Flotilla.” On board the ship were activists and among them terrorists who attacked Israeli soldiers with weapons when they boarded the ship.

     “[PA Minister of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa] Karake considered Israel’s agreeing to release prisoners imprisoned since before [the] Oslo [Accords were signed], most of whom are accused by Israel of involvement in the murder of Israelis, as breaking the Israeli habit that always prevented the release of prisoners accused of murdering Israelis. He added: ‘If the Israeli government will not [try some kind of] manipulation, the release of these prisoners could be considered a step forward and a wonderful thing, which will open a door of hope to the additional prisoners with regard to their release.”

     “Speakers agreed that the struggle to end our prisoners’ suffering in the occupation’s prisons and free them all must continue. They denounced the occupation’s policy of stealing Martyr (Shahid) prisoners’ organs and using their bodies for medical purposes.
This was said during the inauguration event of the Prisoner Martyr Anis Dawla Square, which took place under the auspices of Minister of Prisoners’ Affairs, Issa Karake, District Governor of Qalqilya, Rabih Al-Khandaqji, and district leaders, in the city of Qalqilya…
Karake said that it is important that the memory remain alive and burning. He said that the fact that Israel has hidden the Martyr’s body for over 33 years proves its arrogance, which is conveyed by its refusal to return it [the body] and by this it has opened up the story of a criminal state that still holds over 250 [bodies of] prisoners and insists that his (i.e., the prisoner’s) body does not exist.
He called on all human rights organizations to work to discover what happened to those missing and he denounced Israel’s Martyrs’ organ trade and the medical experiments conducted on their organs…
He thanked Anis, the Martyr who lives on in his people’s hearts and said that he is a symbol of the struggle’s significance and of humanism.”

Note: Anis Dawla was sentenced to life in prison in 1968 for his membership in a PLO cell that crossed the border into Israel.
