PA daily reports on former prisoner who opposes initiative to put released Palestinian prisoners on the US terror list

Headline: "Farawneh: The position of the Members of Congress harms the legitimate struggle of the prisoners"
"Former prisoner and expert on prisoner affairs, Abd Al-Nasser Farawneh, denounced the demand by a group of American members of Congress, 36 in number, to American Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton, and the FBI, to put the names of the released prisoners on the American 'terror' list and to treat them as terrorists. Farawneh said, 'This position constitutes a harsh blow to the status of the Palestinian cause and its justice, and harms our people's struggle against the occupation, which was guaranteed and confirmed by all the international agreements and conventions. It also harms especially the prisoners and their legitimate struggle against the occupation."
