As a result, an entire population is terrorized for praying to the wrong God. World leaders yawn and ignore it. America provides generous support. Annually it increases while homeland needs go begging.
Hanatsheh Arrested for Fourth Time
On November 22, 2011, 20 soldiers, an intelligence officer, and unidentified masked man stormed his home at 1:30AM. Without cause, he was again arrested and held.
On November 30, he was ordered detained for six months. Administrative detentions use secret evidence, unavailable to victims and counsel. As a result, they can't challenge alleged evidence in violation of international humanitarian law.
It permits limited use of administrative detentions in emergency situations, but requires authorities follow basic rules and procedures. They include due process hearings at which detainees may challenge why they're held. Israel spurns all international law. As a result, Palestinians like Hanatsheh suffer.
Secret evidence even extends to constitutionality issues, argued by the State ex parte. As a result, in March 2009, three Israeli human rights organizations withdrew their petition challenging the constitutionality of a High Court criminal procedure order.
Withdrawal was in protest over the Court's decision to let the General Security Service present information exclusively to its judges without petitioners' presence. As a result, they couldn't examine and question it.
Palestinians are systematically denied justice in a rigged system against them. Once charged, or detained without charges, they're guilty by accusation or implication. Equal protection's a nonstarter. Justice serves Jews one way, Palestinians another, affording them none.
