For the past 10 years Italian ISM volunteer, Vittorio Arrigoni has been a pro Palestine peace activist with the last two years living in Gaza.

Tattoo reads Resistance in Arabic.

On 14th April he was kidnapped, held hostage and threatened with execution for the following day by a small Salafist Jihadists group if Hamas doesn’t answer their demands of releasing their Salafist leader whom Hamas arrested last month. However, the group didn’t wait for the deadline they had given and had murdered him within hours, (as far as I know at the moment it’s a suspected hanging as cause of death). May I add, Vittorio’s heart was more Palestinian than his killers. His killer’s do not represent Palestinians.

Mourners gathered in Gaza and the West Bank to pay their respects to a courageous, pure hearted, dedicated humanitarian. He will be remembered forever for his work by all. My sincere condolences go out to his family, friends and to all those he touched, a true definition of a hero, a fallen hero. May God bless his soul and Rest In Peace.



Vittorio Arrigoni – Italian Pro Palestine supporter kidnapped and held hostage in Gaza.

An Italian Pro Palestine supporter has been kidnapped by a small extremist group, Salafi’s in Gaza threatening exectution tomorrow afternoon if their leader (whom was arrested last month by Hamas) is not released.

It’s absolutely disgusting. Palestinians are prisoners in prisons, their own homes and their own country by Isreal yet this group does the same to a Pro Palestine supporter. They are as bad as Israel.
