Fadi Quran, a non-violent Palestinian activist, was arrested by Israeli soldiers during a peaceful protest. Fadi is being charged with pushing an Israeli soldier, but video footage (watch for yourself here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUeJEUX5Vtc) shows that he was speaking, then pepper sprayed, pushed down violently to the ground by soldiers and arrested. Fadi, a Stanford graduate, is studying law and working for an alternative energy company in Ramallah. According to Time magazine he is the face of the new NON VIOLENT Palestinian movement (http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,2062474,00.html) You can also read more about Fadi's non violent efforts here: http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2012/02/the-arab-spring-comes-to-israel/253600/

Fadi should not be detained for an indefinite period of time on false charges. It is imperative that the Israeli government release Fadi so that he may continue to speak for his people and PEACEFULLY push for basic human rights.

      Fadi is an old friend of mine from Stanford. He's admirable and virtuous, a role model for young Palestinians. Please let him go. He hasn't done anything wrong.

      Because I believe in fairness, equality, and justice. Fadi's arrest and the charges against him are unfair, unjust, and another example of the inherent inequality in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. We are fortunate that his alleged "crime" was caught on video; I wonder how many thousands of Palestinian activists have been arrested or convicted on propped-up charges without the benefit of exculpatory video evidence. Free Fadi.

      Systematic unreasonable behavior of the agents of authority deserves zero tolerance.

      We are born free. Borders exist to help us organize ourselves and keep oriented as we travel these lands, not to oppress our brothers and forbid them from the common wealth of the world. Fadi is standing up for us all, and deserves to come and go in peace. Release him NOW.
