     “A delegation comprising 90 people from the Druze community of ’48 Interior Palestine visited Ramallah. Among those who welcomed them was Minister of Prisoners’ Affairs, Issa Karake… Sheikh Abu Muhammad Ma’adi, head of the Druze Contact Committee, delivered a speech in which he said that since its establishment the Druze-’48 Arabs Contact Committee had declared [its] continued contact with our families and the members of our people in the Interior [i.e., Israel] and throughout the Arab world. During our visit to Jerusalem and Ramallah and to the grave of Yasser Arafat, we emphasized the unity of the ranks and of destiny, and the unity of the downtrodden and oppressed nation. We are in the trenches together in facing the racist Israeli policy of discrimination.”
