Randomly-chosen quotation:
"Anyone who can’t tell the difference between Israel and terrorists who stab innocent Americans, who blow up women and children, that raises real questions about their judgement to be commander-in-chief."
(Ted Cruz, 9 March 2016)
Mohammad Amarneh
Mohammad Amarneh, a 17 year-old student, was arbitrarily imprisoned on 2 March 2016. In the middle of night, soldiers stormed Amarneh’s family house in Yabad, Jenin gov., ransacked it, and kidnapped Mohammad. He was taken to a military jail where he was interrogated, and later sentenced to a so-called “administrative detention” by the military commander. Mohammad was accused of posting material on Facebook “that includes incitement against the occupation security forces” – an accusation he denies.

The Israeli military have singled out Yabad for harassment operations, repeatedly invading the town, storming houses, brutalizing youngsters, and otherwise menacing and kidnapping residents. Mohammad Amarneh’s arbitrary imprisonment is a means to demoralize his family, instill fear in Yabad’s residents, and to subjugate the town.

Number of days arbitrarily imprisoned:
