Two Noble Sanctuaries' Security in The Hands of the Zionists

(SALEM, Ore.) - Sheikh Akrama Sabri, head of the Supreme Islamic Council in Jerusalem, says he will protest against the Saudi government for hiring the company (G4S) for Hajj security.

He said that the company has been active in occupied Palestinian territories for years. According to the G4S Website, they are an American company, while Wikipedia claims G4S is based in the UK.

According to reports, Sheikh Sabri spoke to Muslims at a gathering in Germany, saying, "(G4S) is a security company that equips and maintains the Zionist detention centers and jails where Palestinian political prisoners, including children, are held and tortured.

"G4S is complicit in Israel's occupation. Those who help the occupation must be held accountable and are complicit in the crime, as those who help aggressors also are aggressors. How (can) Saudi Arabia call itself a pro-Islamic and Arab nation while it hires G4S, (an) accomplice to Israeli torture for Hajj security?"

G4S company headquarters are located in Jeddah. This company also has contracts with the Israeli government to provide equipment and services to checkpoints in the occupied territories. The company was heavily targeted by the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement in recent years due to its tactics against Palestinians incarcerated in Israel.

In the Jalma and Maskoubieh interrogation centers, which are also serviced by G4S, not even children are spared from torture.

Under Israeli military law, prisoners can be detained for investigation for 60 days without access to a lawyer, which means that lawyers cannot witness interrogation methods used against their clients. All these practices and more are facilitated by G4S.

G4S Israel supplied luggage scanning equipment and full body scanners to several checkpoints in the West Bank. G4S also operates in the Israeli settlements, catering to businesses and private citizens.

The company provides security systems and centralized control systems to the Hasharon-Ramonim prison, which contains a section for Palestinian political prisoners. G4S has installed a central command room in Megiddo Prison, in addition to supplying a wide array of security services to the Damon and Ketziot prisons.
