Update 2 (December 24)

Today, 24 December, Jamal Juma’ underwent a hearing before a military judge at Moskobiyya Detention Center, in Jerusalem. Although Jamal’s interrogation over eight days apparently has finished, the judge granted the Israeli police and intelligence agency’s request to extend his detention for 12 more days of “investigation” before a scheduled second hearing.

This morning, the judge upheld the false premise of Jamal’s arrest as a West Bank resident, insisting that he is alien to his actual Jerusalem residence, because of his work in a Ramallah (West Bank) office. That makes Jamal the subject of Israeli military law.

The Israeli occupation authorities in Jerusalem are holding Jamal incommunicado, without access to his lawyer. Even the judge ordered the lawyer out of the courtroom while Jamal came before the judge. The Israeli jailers blindfolded Jamal in his only meeting briefly with his lawyer several days ago. They likewise blindfolded him when his brother entered the courtroom to see him briefly at this morning’s hearing. The judge refused to allow observes from European Consulates and the Habitat International Coalition from entering the court.

Jamal’s file remains “secret” and under no known charges.

  1. It is typical of sham Israeli Courts of their sham entity of so-called ‘Israel’ an Occupying force on Palestinian land since Nakba of 1947. It has nothing to do with biblical myth for its justification and reference! They dreamt to take this land since Theodor Hertzal’s dreamt and since 1917 during Balfour’s days dared to fulfil this dream of a ‘Jewish’ state. Their agenda is to ethnically kill off the inhabitants in West Bank including Gaza to fulfil this morbid, unrealistic, immoral, illegal dream of theirs. Today is the first Anniversary of their onslaught on Gaza when I write this comment. Jamal Juma must be freed at once. The world is waiting! Have sense!
