Prisoners of Faith Alert: Vigil for Sheikh Obaid kidnapped and held hostage by Israeli regime

IHRC is to hold a vigil on Monday 28th July 2003 to mark the fourteenth anniversary of the kidnap of Sheikh Abdulkareem Obaid from Lebanon, by Israeli commandos. Not only has he been tortured, but remains in solitary confinement, held without charge and refused access to his family and friends.

To commemorate this event the campaign to free Sheikh Obaid is holding a vigil outside the Israeli Embassy (Kensington High Street, London W8) on Monday 28th July:

Time: from 4pm to 7pm

Tube: High Street Kensington (Circle and District Lines)

Directions:

(1) Turn right from High Street Kensington station and walk two minutes,
(2) Opposite Israeli Embassy, junction of Palace Green and Kensington High Street, London W8.

IHRC has produced a report and campaigners pack into the abduction of Obaid and others from Lebanon, and the atrocities perpetrated on them. To download a copy of the pack visit:

To download a poster for the event click on the download link below.

The campaign finds it unacceptable that Obaid could be held in this manner for fourteen years, with little or no concern from the international community. The plight of Obaid is not unique. Mustafa Dirani, is another Lebanese national abducted from his home in 1994.

The campaign to free Sheikh Obaid is calling for the release of all prisoners of conscience held by the Israelis, of whatever racial, political or confessional background.
