Haidar Abushaqra has been MISSING since December 7, 2011 from Manchester, Connecticut. His cell phone became completely untraceable at 8:24pm that night. He is the Founder and President of the National Palestinian American Congress and has been named one of America's top Palestinian Activists. Before he went missing, he was placed on The Federal Watch List, which leaves his family to believe he has been illegally detained by the government. Under the National Defense Authorization Act, passed on New Years of 2012, the government does not tell the families of detainees that they have been detained. He is either detained or he is DEAD. He is the father of six children that cry every single day to have their father back. He is a son, a brother, an uncle, a cousin, and a friend! We the family do not deserve to be treated the way we've been treated by local law enforcement and by the FBI. We want our loved one home! The least we want is to know if he's dead or alive! Now if you're wondering why we are petitioning to the president, it is because he is the only one who can free Haidar!
