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.
Head of Prisoners’ Affairs says goal is to release of thousands of prisoners

Headline: “1,000 Palestinian prisoners have served 15 or more years in [Israeli] prisons”
     “Head of [PLO] Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake stated that there are 1,000 Palestinian prisoners who have served over 15 years in the occupation’s prisons, among them 30 prisoners who have served more than 20 years. The most veteran prisoners are Karim Younes and Maher Younes, and the female prisoner Lina Al-Jarbouni, and the total number of prisoners is 6,000. Karake emphasized in a statement yesterday [Aug. 26, 2015] that any return to negotiations or political arrangements must be dependent on the release of thousands of prisoners from the prisons, especially those who have served over 15 years in prison, and the Palestinian leaders, headed by [PA Parliament Member] Marwan Barghouti, [former head of PFLP] Ahmad Sa’adat, [senior PA official Fuad] Al-Shubaki, in addition to the sick [prisoners] who are in very serious condition. He said that President Mahmoud Abbas stopped the negotiation process because of Israel’s non-commitment to the release of the prisoners, and because the Palestinian position is based on the release of thousands of prisoners, and not just the fourth stage. (See below.) This is especially so in light of previous commitments regarding this matter which were not carried out by the Netanyahu government. Karake called on the US not to release Israeli spy [Jonathan] Pollard, unless [Israel] releases thousands of Palestinian prisoners, if it [the US] wants to be an unchallenged and impartial factor in any future political arrangement regarding the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.”

PA official: Terrorist prisoners who together killed 12 deserve pity on Ramadan because "the holiday is bitter and difficult" in the Israeli prisons

Headline: "In the homes of the prisoners the atmosphere and joy of the holiday is missing"
     "After 33 years of imprisonment, Eid El-Fitr this year, 2015, will be the 65th holiday of the prisoners Karim Younes and his cousin Maher Younes from the village of Arah in the 1948 territories (i.e., Israel) while still behind the walls and bars of the occupation's prisons... Director of PLO Commission of Prisoners' Affairs Issa Karake explained that... inside the prison, the holiday is bitter and difficult, as the [Israel] Prison Service does not honor the religious and social events of prisoners, forbids group holiday prayers in prison, and prevents bringing in sweets and special dishes for the holidays. Despite this, the prisoners try to overcome their difficult situation through simple ceremonies like holiday prayer, internal visits between rooms, blessing each other, and preparing simple, easy sweet baked goods, and thus send a message to the [Israeli] Prison Service, that they have the right to celebrate the holiday and have hope that their next celebration will be their freedom.
He added: 'The holiday is very difficult for many Palestinian homes, such as the home of the prisoner couple Ibrahim Agbaria and Muna Qa'adan, and the female prisoner released only two weeks ago, Samaher Zayn Al-Din, who left behind her husband Nader Zayn Al-Din and her three brothers, Nazih, Ahmad, and Abd Al-Rahman Othman. This is in addition to the Abu Hmeid family from the Al-Amari refugee camp, which includes four imprisoned brothers, three of them serving life sentences.'"

Ma’an TV reports on the fast-breaking meal for prisoners’ relatives and foreign diplomats:
Ma’an TV host: “For the last 30 years, Latifa Abu Hmeid from the Al-Amari [refugee] camp hasn’t gathered around one table with her sons for Ramadan, because her sons were wanted, and afterward imprisoned, and sentenced to life, and so Al-Khansa of Palestine spends another Ramadan without her children.”
Mother of four prisoners Latifa Abu Hmeid: “I am a mother whose four sons were sentenced to life, and at the moment, each son is in a different prison, only I visit them now, and I can’t always visit them. As far as I’m concerned, Ramadan or not, it’s a regular day. I don’t have a Ramadan table to serve, with my children gathered around it.”
Ma’an TV host: “The suffering of the Abu Hmeid family from the Al-Amari [refugee] camp and the story of five of its sons, four of them serving life sentences, and the fifth who died as a Martyr, this suffering was felt at the fast-breaking meal of consuls and ambassadors to Palestine.”
Director of PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs and PA Parliament Member Issa Karake: “This is a political message, especially in the presence of ambassadors, consuls, and guests, a political message in which we assert that the issue of the imprisoned Palestinians is a central issue for us in every just peace [agreement] in the region.”

Issa Karake: “Israeli hospitals not admitting Palestinian patients is nothing new, hence the Palestinian patient, that is, the Palestinian prisoner, suffers while trying to get treatment… it seems that a deadly virus was introduced into Awad’s body in prison… Prisons have become the source of an epidemic, a source of death and a source of dissemination of diseases in the bodies of the prisoners. There is a policy of medical negligence and medical experiments: In the 1990s, the Israeli Minister of Science (see note) admitted having given licenses to more than a thousand Israeli drug companies to test medications on Palestinian detainees.”

PLO official: Palestinian "resistance" and "struggle" are recognized by the UN

Headline: “We oppose the criminalization of the Palestinian struggle”
      “The [PLO] Commission of Prisoners and Released Prisoners' Affairs said that the decision of the so-called ‘Head of Central Command’ to apply the principles of the Israeli penal law (amendment 39) to the Palestinians facing trial in the occupied territories, will have dangerous political and legal consequences for the Palestinian national struggle and the prisoners’ issue. The Commission stated in a released report, that the Israeli government strives through its system of military laws… to criminalize the struggle of the Palestinians, to deny the legitimacy of [their] resistance to the occupation, which is recognized by all international laws and in UN resolutions, and to deny them [the Palestinians] their definition as ‘prisoners of war’ and ‘prisoners of freedom.’"

Note: PA leaders and officials have legitimized Palestinian violence by quoting UN resolution 3236 which "recognizes the right of the Palestinian people to regain its rights by all means." The PA interprets "all means" as including violence against civilians, but has chosen to ignore the continuation of the resolution which states that the use of "all means" should be "in accordance with the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations..." The UN Charter prohibits targeting civilians, even in war. Chapter 1, Article 1, opens by saying that "international disputes" should be resolved "by peaceful means."
