“Al-Akhras, who denies the allegations, has been imprisoned at least five times for a total of more than five years since he turned 18.”

Looks like he’s a deliberate target.
How horrifying to be detained without charge.

My Jewish friends know that my hatred of Zionism is not directed at them, it’s an ism thing.

From the article:
“The policy dates back to the period when Palestine—which includes all of what is today Israel—was ruled as a British colony and pro-independence Jewish militants carried out terrorist attacks against occupying forces and Palestinian Arabs.”

Of course the settler-colonialist Israel retains the no-accountability “administrative detention” that it inherited from the British colonizers.

EDIT: And thanks for covering this story.
