Release Pal. Prisoners Need GPS

Seems there may be a problem after so many years in jail.

According to this story, (k/t=IMRA), it seems the newly released Pal. prisoners are getting lost on the roads.

Israeli forces Tuesday night detained Samer al-Issawi, a released Palestinian prisoner in the latest swap, according to a WAFA correspondent. Israeli soldiers arrested al-Issawi at a checkpoint near Issawiya, an Arab neighborhood in East Jerusalem, and detained him for 13 hours in al-Muskubiya [the Russian Compound]...He was released earlier this morning.

Al-Issawi’s family condemned the detention and called on human rights organizations and the Red Cross to immediately intervene to prevent future detentions...

Maybe buying them a new map or even a GPS program could help.


P.S. I don't know what the excuses these 19 Pals. had for getting into trouble.

"Getting lost" is a euphemism for getting caught before being able to carry out a terror attack!!

From my review of the list of those released there is no one by the name of Samer Al-Issawi.


I think this person's name, at least according to Israel, is Samir Tariq Ahmad Muhammad. ID = 37274735. According to PNN http://english.pnn.ps/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=10804&Itemid=64, he was 32, which would be correct if it is the Samir I think it is, because he was born in 1979.


He was serving 26 years for attempted murder, explosives and weapons charges.


He was also on a horse the other day http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/picture/2011/oct/19/israel-palestinian-territories
