NABLUS (Ma’an) -- A former Palestinian mayor detained by Israeli forces this week will be held in administrative detention for six months, a prisoners group said Sunday.

Sheikh Jamal Tawil, who had held the mayoral post in al-Bireh, a neighborhood of Ramallah in the central West Bank, was detained on Tuesday.

The Solidarity Foundation for Human Rights said Ofer military court gave the former mayor six months in detention without charge.

Tawil was arrested by Israeli forces during the first intifada and held for several months under administrative detention at the time.

As of December, 178 Palestinians were being held without charge in Israeli jails, including seven elected members of the Palestinian parliament, according to prisoners rights group Addameer.

No more clubbing and pubbing with the International Solidarity Movement for a few months then for Sheikh Jamal Tawil, in Ramallah's flesh pots .

While the United Nations Human Rights Council scurries to Greece to investigate administrative detention there, they have NEVER, in 64 years, bothered to go to Israel to investigate the same practice perpetrated daily against Palestinians. Surely we aren't seeing discrimination practised by the very body that is supposed to uphold equal rights for all?
