I reported a few days ago that the Shabak has arrested an 18 year old Nazareth resident, Ahmad Khaled Ghanem under gag order. He is suspected of alleged security offenses. An Israeli Palestinian NGO helped me reach his parents and lawyer. The family is terrified and doesn’t want to make any statement that might harm their son. The attorney is bound under the gag not to provide any information to anyone, including me.
How can it be that the victims are so terrified that they cannot even speak about their terror or those who are causing it? How can the Shabak have so worked its ‘magic’ that all one can do is shake with fear in the face of its power?
Ghanem has been in Kishon Prison near Haifa for two weeks during which you can be sure the Mukhabarat worked its magic on the boy.
