  1. This is great news. Its nice to see Jewish and Non Jewish Israeli’s treated the same… Both get harassed by the government and threats of jail but in the end good trumped and they were let go.

    Gives hope for the future.

  2. Wow!!! So many protesters! Are you sure that your esoteric confused blog which is filled with unfounded conspiracy theories (remember the Saar slander?) is responsible for his release? I wonder… Well nothing feels better than a nice pat on one’s own back. 🙂 #pathetic

  3. “Today, (Majd Kayyal) was released from prison and placed under house arrest.”

    I don’t know about others, but I wouldn’t consider being held under “house arrest” as a victory.

    1. @ Dave Terry: If you’d been in a Shabak cell & subject to their abuse for four days without contact with family or lawyers , you’d see it as a victory. Not a decisive one of course. He has a long way to go.

    You keep referring to Mr. Kayyal as a journalist.
    It seems to me, that Mr. Kayyal is a political activist with journalistic credentials.

    From Haaretz: “Kayyal has become well-known among Israeli Arab society in recent years, chiefly among the young, for his political activity with the Balad party. He also gained renown for drumming up opposition to the “Prawer plan,” which sought to relocate the Bedouin in the Negev.


    A journalist, like Ron Ben Yishai, reports the news, an activist, like Kayyal, makes the news.

    1. @ Shoshana: What baloney. He writes for a Lebanese newspaper, As-Safir and edits the Adalah website. You would prefer him not to be considered a journalist because of your own ideological biases. I’ve got news for you: in pre-state days the British authorities saw Palestinian-Jewish reporters as troublemakers and agitators as well, rather than journalists. Plus ca change…

      Yours is a distinctions without a difference.
