Apologies for a garbled paragraph (the fourth paragraph of the introduction), caused by a technology glitch, in the posting headed: "Dissent despite repressive silencing in Israel".
The paragraph should read:
The first item below reports the detention of Mohammed Abu Humus, an activist openly opposing the government's actions in Gaza. "Administrative detention"—essentially unlimited detention with no charges or trial—has been used for decades to silence Palestinian activists including many working for cooperation and peace. Unlike Jewish activists, whose arrests are usually short term, Palestinians are regularly incarcerated for years as "Administrative Detainees".
