Are there really no politically based arrests in Israel? Do they occur only in Syria and Russia? Is it possible that a West Bank human rights activist was taken into custody solely to prevent him from documenting the invasion of a Palestinian village by a group of settlers? What happened last Saturday night to Nasser Nawajah, a human rights activist and a field researcher for both B’Tselem and Haqel – both of them Israeli human rights organizations – can only be described as a political arrest.
