    ...the vast majority of administrative detainees (372) have been held without charge or trial for at least two consecutive periods.

    In 2008, the number of administrative detainees dropped gradually: from 813 in January to 546 in December. Six of the detainees in December were minors. For the first time, Israel held two female minors in administrative detention; both had their detention period extended for a second period. B’Tselem demands that Israel immediately release all administrative detainees, or try them for the offences they are alleged to have committed. The total number of Palestinian prisoners and detainees in Israeli custody at the end of December was 7,904.

    •  Hi, Cassandra. (0+ / 0-)

      How are you this morning?

      It's Valentine's Day, dontcha know and Laurie and I intend to have friends over this evening for a Thanksgiving dinner.

      We're gonna roast a bird and make mashed potatoes and stuffing and homemade cranberry sauce.

      I hope that your Valentine's Day is a nice one.

      Cheers!
