Khalida Jarrar: “I will never stop speaking out”

Despite being held for almost two years, she was never charged with a crime.

The prominent leftist lawmaker and civil society figure who was in charge of the Palestinian Legislative Council’s prisoners committee when the parliament was still nominally active broke into a deep-throated chuckle when asked whether she was worried that Israel might arrest her again.

“Why do all of you [journalists] ask me that?” she queried, before answering herself.

“This question is for the occupation, I think,” she said, her hands gesturing with a lit cigarette between her fingers. “Will the occupation continue demolishing Palestinian homes? Do they plan to continue denying us our rights of national determination?”

“If the occupation continues, then I will never stop speaking out on these issues.”
