I've Been Thinking:
15 Palestinians attended the Bahrain conference.
The police confiscated computers and security cameras. Only one person was arrested the others escaped or went in to hiding before their homes were raided.
Hebron businessman Saleh abu Mayaleh was the person arrested. He spent two days in jail and was released after the US embassy sent a very strong letter to the PA.
"We are pleased the PA has released the Palestinian they arrested after attending the Peace to Prosperity workshop. We look fwd to continuing our conversation w all who attended the workshop & anyone else who wants a better future for the Palestinians."
Before the Peace to Prosperity Conference the Palestinian press published the names and pictures of those planning to attend the workshop and called them all traitors.
The charge against them was treason.
Talk about an extreme reaction.
