Mohammad Saba’aneh, a young Palestinian cartoonist and public relations chief at Arab American University in Jenin, West Bank, was arrested and detained by Israeli authorities on Feb. 16. He had returned from Jordan. A court has now determined he be held for 9 more days. Reporters Without Borders is calling on Israel to charge him and allow him to see a lawyer.
A call to action has been started by the International Council for Human Rights. Please visit and send a message to the IDF, the UN etc. Israel must listen to the call of justice, as must we all.
