Inoreader – Admitting he didn’t commit a crime, IDF puts teen in admin. detention for Facebook post

The army prosecutor readily admitted to the judge that the photos Makhtoob published on Facebook did not constitute a crime, but that secret evidence handed over to the judge — which neither Makhtoob nor his lawyer were allowed to see — justified keeping him behind bars. Zaher demanded that the court bring charges against Makhtoob rather than hold him indefinitely without trial. The judge, however, accepted the prosecution’s argument that the secret evidence was enough to keep him behind bars for the time being, and extended his remand by another three days.

As life moves on, and my children are stepping out to their future, I felt as if a journey of life just rewound itself as Hiva stepped in her first career. Somehow all those challenges, trembling threats, unbearable difficulties, almost impossible attempts to make it amid storms of turbulence. Sounds of insistence that I will not make it … we will not make it. Somehow as Hiva is entering her own “I” definition of her universe, I feel this moment untie me from that chain of us into a new chain of Hiva’s own path.
I feel as if God finally smiles…
