    taken right off of court records and devoid of circumstance. what's more telling than anything is that the sentences themselves reflect mitigating circumstances. and any way you look at it, IF these women were "dangerous"...or considered REAL terrorists; their sentences would reflect it! and look at the relatively heavy sentences for membership in a banned org.? there's several of those; these are common confessions coerced from detainees... everybody's heard of the idf's infamous detentions; right? and most of the ladies are near the end of their sentences anyway? personally, i LOVED seeing that the one was released weds. due to a "mistake made at the prisons department". "mistake"? she was released "due process" for good behavior! the prison got word of the swap too late! lol! on a more sober note, i wonder what her "records" WOULD have reflected; "sentence reduced for good behavior", or "released in prisoner exchange". so they had to cough up another one!...lol. that would be #20 i take it..."held without bail pending trial for membership in an illegal organization and disturbing the peace"--in other words, she was probably a detainee rounded up during a protest march. everybody IS aware of the difference, right?; between a detainee and a person arrested for a crime?
