Plea of the Israeli political prisoner’s wife

Read this powerful article penned for Electronic Intifada by Janan Abdu, spouse of Palestinian-Israeli political prisoner Ameer Makhoul, who has shockingly been held without trial since May.
Abdu quotes the stirring (but possibly empty?) words that Secretary Clinton uttered recently at the 10th anniversary meeting of the Community of Democracies in Krakow, Poland:

    “Democracies don’t fear their own people… They recognize that citizens must be free to come together to advocate and agitate.”

Well, that would be assuming that Israel is an actual democracy, wouldn’t it?
Anyway, go read the whole of Abdu’s stirring article there.

    Fibi Bibi doesnt often tell the truth..so heres your chance to learn
    what he really thinks:
    ‘A newly revealed tape of Netanyahu in 2001, being interviewed while he
    thinks the cameras are off, shows him in a radically different light. In
    … it, Netanyahu dismisses American foreign policy as easy to maneuver,
    boasts of having derailed the Oslo accords with political trickery, and
    suggests that the only way to deal with the Palestinians is to “beat
    them up, not once but repeatedly, beat them up so it hurts so badly,
    until it’s unbearable”
