Palestinian Non-violent Organizer Released From Prison
Abdullah Abu Rahme, a Palestinian organizer of the weekly non-violent demonstrations in Bil'in village, in the central West Bank, was released from prison on Monday after serving a 16-month sentence for "incitement".
Abu Rahme was initially charged with 'possession of a weapon', based on an art display he created of a peace sign made from spent tear gas canisters fired by the Israeli military at demonstrators. That charge was later changed to "incitement" based on the testimony of young teens who were tortured by the Israeli military, according to the youth and their lawyers.
