From Jewish Voice for Peace: Tell the US Consulate in Jerusalem about Mohammad Othman before his hearing tomorrow!

UPDATE FROM JVP: Please call US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton and ask her to get involved. We are simply asking for a stop to the harassment of Mohammad Othman. He should either be tried in a court of law where he can defend himself or he should be released. You can call her office at this number: +1-202-647-5291. After your call, please take a moment to let JVP know how it went by clicking here. Urgent action from US Campaign member group Jewish Voice for Peace: On November 23, 2009, after 61 days in jail, Mohammad Othman has received his first administrative detention order for a three month period -- a period where Mohammad will be held without charge or trial. The judicial review of the order is scheduled to take place tomorrow, November 25th, at the Military Court of Administrative Detainees in Ofer Military Base, near the West Bank city of Ramallah, and we need you to take action right now. Tell the US Consul General in Jerusalem to send a representative to the hearing. His harassment must stop. He should either be tried in a court of law where he can defend himself or he should be released. Take action by clicking here. Learn more about Mohammad Othman here.
