HELP THE HALAMISH BROTHERS APPEAL THEIR 8 MONTHS SENTENCE

Some three years ago, our friends, Danny and Itzik Halamish from Maaleh Rehavam in the Judean Hills (close to Tekoa), were asked by the Sde Bar security officer to drive away Arab shepherds who infiltrated the Sde Bar grazing area. The Halamish brothers were attacked by the Arabs and forced to defend themselves. Danny and Itzik were accused and found guilty of "assault'. The Arabs were, of course, not accused of anything!! Women in Green wrote about their case a couple of months ago, when the judge had already found them guilty. Already then we called upon you to help raise money for the appeal. At that time we did not know yet how long the judge would decide to keep those brothers in jail.

Last week, Judge Amnon Cohen sentenced the Halamish brothers to 8 months in jail, to an additional suspended sentence and to paying the Arabs "compensation"! We need your financial help to appeal this outrageous injustice. The monies raised a couple of months ago in preparation for the appeal, are not enough. For more details you can contact Aharon Halamish, Danny's and Itzik's father: halamish@013.net or call them at 972-2-970-9066
