  • Nabil speaks about his time in detention | The Freedom Theatre
    a hallmark of the Israeli occupation and is a fate suffered by the thousands of Palestinians who are detained and imprisoned by Israel It is also an indication of the extent to which the Israeli government is willing to go in order to repress nonviolent freedom of expression Nabil has been able to give testimony of his time in Israeli detention His report gives evidence of psychological as well as physical abuse Among other things Nabil was strapped to a chair for two days after having passed two polygraph tests After the fourth polygraph test interrogators told Nabil he had passed and that they were letting him go the next day Nabil believed them but this turned out to be a lie The interrogators made countless use of personal information and made threats about what would happen to Nabil s daughter Mina if his wife was also arrested At one point seven different interrogators came in at the same time demanding answers to seven different questions All of them showed different attitudes towards Nabil some were very nice others angry some threatening demanding and so on The interrogators admitted that they knew Nabil had nothing to do with Juliano Mer Khamis murder but because Nabil is an activist and a theatre artist and thus undermining the occupation with theatre in particular they needed an excuse to arrest him The Freedom Theatre is still very concerned about continuing harassment of the theatre Many of the staff members and students are afraid they may be taken next This is a particular concern for those who have been called for interrogation recently since this seems to consistently precede an arrest Co founder and supporter of The Freedom Theatre Zakaria Zubeidi is still in Palestinian prison In addition his lawyer Farid Hawash was recently
