Walid Abu Rass: Not Guilty, Not Freed

You may recall the appeal my friend Sam Bahour forwarded to us last December about his friend Walid Abu Rass. It turns out Abu Rass was about to be summarily released, indeed, a military judge had decided that he was guilty of nothing and reduced his sentence, but the army then decided to extend his detention anyway "for precautionary reasons." You can read Sam's posts about this here and here. It is necessary to do what we can.

Incidentally, if you want to hear from the kind of people Israel has been stripping of residency--see my post from yesterday--watch this interview of with Sam.
