December 27, 2010 – As the case of nonviolent Palestinian organizer Abdallah Abu Rahmah has gained attention globally with statements from the European Union, The Elders (including former US President Jimmy Carter), Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, and others, at least one reporter poses the question of Abu Rahmah’s fate to the United States Undersecretary of State PJ Crowley.

Abu Rahmah was sentenced to one year in Israeli prison on the charge of “incitement” for organizing protests against the confiscation of land and Israel’s illegal wall in his West Bank village of Bil’in. One year has since passed and Abu Rahmah is still being held indefinitely by the Israeli military.
