If they don't rule favorably post haste, it won't matter. If they do and order his immediate release, Israel's prison authority may appeal or delay.

Israel's hanging Judge Moshe Tirosh rejected his lower court appeal. High Court justices rarely override. Frustrated lawyers call the whole process oppressive. They want to help but can't.

The Hamoked Center for the Defense of the Individual discussed "Israeli Case-Law under Scrutiny," saying:

"For over forty years, Israel has systematically violated the rights of Palestinians in the Occupied Territories and its obligations under international law."

Justice Israeli-style completely abandoned its role. Justices side with prosecutors. Decisions are based on "confidential security material" with little chance to review or challenge. Due process and judicial fairness are entirely absent.

"The Israeli courts, whether directly or indirectly, provide a legal seal of approval for the acts of the occupation." They're complicit with state crimes against humanity. As a result, Palestinian lives are lost. Only Jewish ones matter.

On February 16, Addameer and Hamoked lawyers petitioned Israel's military commander Yair Koles. He issued Adnan's administrative detention order. They urged him to cancel it saying:

"(D)ue to his medical condition, (he) can no longer uphold the ill-founded allegations that (Adnan) poses an immediate threat to the security of the Area or public security of the State of Israel; therefore, continuing to hold (him) is prima facie a violation of international law and Israeli law and amounts to arbitrary law" and a death sentence.

So far, no response was forthcoming.
