Detentions in Israel

March 6, 2013
The Advertiser-Tribune

Administrative prison detentions are a big problem in Israeli prisons! During my three-year stay in Hebron, I heard many stories of Palestinian imprisonment from people in my neighborhood. I witnessed six Israeli soldiers with M16s break into the home I was visiting, search for the son and drag him off to prison for six months. No clear charge given. I visited a 15-year-old accused of throwing a stone at a soldier. He served for three months. My friend Hani, like my friend Issa and like many other detainees, was in and out of prison for their peaceful resistance to the occupation. Always, the questions loomed before us: Will he return? When will he return? Every six-month administrative detention can be renewed. And they are!
