Letter to Exeter Synagogue pleading for its help in releasing Mays' daddy from administrative detention
02 August 2012
15 year old Mays Hanatsheh, her mother and her sister want Walid, the father to be released from administrative detention under the Zionist entity. Sam Bahour asked us to write to local Jewish communities.

Dear citizens in the congregation of Exeter Synagogue,



I bring Mays letter to you.  Her father is one of several thousands who are imprisoned without knowing why.  You will know this happens in the UK too and that there are proposals to extend this cruel lawlessness. You will also know that the 'law' underlying administrative detention (AD) goes back to the British mandate.  You might know that over 300 Palestinian children are imprisoned and some of those under AD.



I ask you to consider Mays letter and the great pain she and her family suffer with thousands of others and whether all this reflects the central values of the Torah

I ask you this not as Jews but as world citizens in a world torn apart by pain, loss and gross injustice.  I ask that you use all your energies to help this family 1500 miles from us.



There is relevance to you in this piece I wrote in which I quote Amira Hass

Dear citizens,



I should be grateful for a response to my courteous letter written 7 July as human to human.  We live on the same planet and indeed in the same nation.  As a 'universalist' I expect a response.
