Adalah: "The aim of the continued detention of Mr. Khateeb is to intimidate and deeply frighten Palestinian society from using social media to express support for their own people."
Adalah: When the authorities impede exposure to opinions associated with the minority group, the result is the transformation of the cultural and artistic arena into a mouthpiece for the majority.
Adalah: Collective punishment undermines fundamental rights of residents to human dignity and freedom of movement, and violates international law
Investigations more important in light of statements by politicians and police officials praising actions by the police and calling on them to shoot and kill.
"International laws prohibit deportation of protected residents on the grounds of breach of loyalty, and prohibit the occupier from requiring them to swear allegiance to the occupying power."

Repressive police acts include arbitrary arrests of minors; 'preventive arrests' of activists; arrests of activists' family members; and severe physical violence against protestors.

Adalah: The Court's decision is dominated by political calculations more than by legal reasoning; ban on travel to Arab countries is discriminatory and repressive.
Adalah: "The Court should have accepted the petition from the first moment it was submitted, when it was already clear that there was no justification for the continuation of Allan's detention."
Adalah: The court's request to the state indicates that it believes the petitioners' arguments are correct; the continuation of the detention is therefore very problematic from a legal point of view.
