ICSPR: listing ‘Shallah’ on the ‘terrorism’ list is American denial of the Palestinian rights to resist the occupation.
The International Commission to Support Palestinian Right strongly condemns listing the Secretary- General of the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine, Dr. Ramadan Abdullah Shallah in the annual wanted list of the FBI. The United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has published a report which contains the names of 29 people on the list of wanted persons of the FBI, including 8 Palestinians, most notably Dr. Shallah, And the liberated detainee Ahlam al-Tamimi.
ICSPR believes that American behavior reflects a clear disregard for the international law and principle and the international judiciary. It also gives the green light to the Israeli occupation state to work to cause physical harm to these Palestinians in a manner that is contrary with the international law especially since the US behavior is not the first of its kind. In 2014, the US State Department listed the name of Mr. Ziad Al-Nakhla, the Deputy Secretary-General of the Islamic Jihad Movement on the list of terrorism.

4- (ICSPR) stresses that the various international reports have confirmed that the Israeli occupation state is the one who practices international terrorism against the Palestinian people, whereas the Palestinian resistance is committed to international norms and conventions governing international armed conflicts.
5- (ICSPR)urges the Palestinian, Arab and Islamic diplomacy to work hard to ensure that the US administration retracts its recent decision and to develop and to publish an Arab black list listing the names of Israeli military leaders and civilians accused of international crimes, including the crime of terrorism.
