We need to try all we can to help women who are being held for speaking out or protesting injustice! This article is a terrible revelation!

Is the "Palestinian Think Tank" really a source of unbiased news for you, Cheryl, or is this posted as a joke?

I did note that even the PTT admits that there are now on 34 "Palestinian" women held in Israeli jails, which is an astoundingly low number given the populations of Israel on the one hand and the West Bank/Gaza on the other, several million each.

I live in a peaceful town of 100,000 or so and I bet there are more women than that in our local jail, and we are not nearly as likely to clap folks into the tank as our American freinds across the river. I wonder how many women are in the hoosegow in Watertown, N.Y.

Mary Carolin, Palestinian women are in Israeli jails not for "speaking out or protesting injustice!". From what I have seen in Israel, everyone there is quite actively "speaking out or protesting injustice!". Be that Zionists, Arab Nationalists, Religious Jews, Secular Jews, Communists and Anarchists. You can see walks and marches of different colors, from Red to Green to Blue and White.

Those 34 women are in jails for either delivering or making explosive belts, for helping suicide bombers, etc.

If Palestinians would decide to live in peace with Israel, not to throw stones, not to attack youths going to schools, not to harass farmers, etc - there would be no Palestinians in Israeli jails.

Ya, the nerve of those pesky Palestinians. They should just "let it go" and forget about all those homes destroyed and orchards obliterated and so-what if the IDF occupies there land and casts lead and phosphorus at school children. Why can't they simply understand?

Thank you Vladimir, extension of our local Care2 Hasbara. You've been here a whole month, isn't it about time you rotated to a new identity?

PTT is higly regarded, so are their journalists, something beyond your scope Terry. As for shooting farmers, fisherman, innocents, that is the IOF, spew you lies and propoganda somewhere else. Stones against the 5th largest army in the world, with USA tax dollars and a welfare state. Palestine needs an army and Arab countries to back them NOT the USA. One state soluation, or none, may just prove to be the answer, as Israel-hell is bent on taking every thing and always have and may just lead us into WWIII.
