Yesterday, Amnesty International called on Israel to end what it says "smacks of pure harassment, designed to hinder" the human rights work of a prominent Palestinian citizen of Israel. Ameer Makhoul of the Israeli human rights group Itijah was arrested on May 6 and has since been denied access to legal advice. Also on May 6, Israeli soldiers arrested Mazin Qumsiyeh, a US citizen, while he peacefully protested the confiscation of land in the West Bank village of Al-Walaja. Analysts see the arrests as part of an intimidation campaign that over the past six months has included the arrest of scores of leaders in the non-violent protest movement in the West Bank and of several civil rights leaders inside Israel.
