Nasif had previously served 10 years in Israeli custody.

Israelis are fond of rubbishing other (read Arab) countries for human rights abuses, and among the abuses they talk about is arrest without charge! What hypocrites they are. 44 months! Outrageous. Administrative detention is abhorrent, whoever does it. But somehow Israel gets away with it. Time and time again.

to gabi #1: ' But somehow Israel gets away with it. Time and time again.' You fail to understand that on Planet Israel, different moral laws apply. This is overwhelmingly obvious. What's wrong anywhere else, is right there. What's right anywhere else is wrong there. Wrap your head around that, and things will become much more predictable.
