Randomly-chosen quotation:
"The government calls it a green zone to stop Palestinians building homes there, and then when the government wants to develop an area [as Jewish] it lifts that green zoning miraculously and it becomes a development place."
(Scott A. Bollens, some date before February 2006)
ayman nasser Ayman Nasser, a researcher with Addameer, the Palestinian prisoner advocacy group, was arrested by Israeli soldiers yet again. In the middle of the night on 18 September 2014, 15 soldiers smashed into Nasser's home in Saffa, ransacked the house, brutalized the family, and arrested Ayman. Ayman has been arbitrarily arrested numerous times, tortured, and violently harassed.
About Nasser: he is a community organizer and leader involved in educational project in the village of Saffa -- he is very well regarded in the village. He is married and has four children.

Ayman Nasser has been subjected to very long terms of the so-called 'administrative detention' -- which really means arbitrary imprisonment, with no charges brought against the defendant, no access to evidence, and for an arbitrary length of imprisonment which can be renewed at any time. The family of the prisoner is also affected sometimes losing permits needed to work in Israel. Most of the victims of arbitrary imprisonment are politically active or are active in organizing their communities. Effective Palestinian leaders who oppose Israeli rule are invariably imprisoned in this manner. It is a means to fragment Palestinian society.

Number of days arbitrarily imprisoned during his latest ordeal:

Previous number of years arbitrarily imprisoned: 7 years

Percentage of Ayman Nasser's life arbitrarily imprisoned: 16.1%
