Ezra Nawi who has already been gaoled on a trumped up charge of assaulting the Israeli military, has now been secretly arrested. Israeli newspapers aren’t allowed under a ‘gag order’ (another nice democratic touch in the only democracy in the Middle East) to even mention his name. He has been refused access to a lawyer which means that he is being subject to the tortures that Israel usually reserves for Palestinians. It is claimed that he gave the names of Palestinians who secretly sold land to settlers to the Palestinian Preventive Security Police. Even were this true then the answer is so what? It is a crime to sell land to Israeli settlers. It enables the settlement and dispossession of more Palestinians. It was similar behaviour that allowed the Zionist colonisatory process to take root.
