Why Young British Jews Are Hiring a West Bank Lawyer

palestinian teens in Israeli military courtsMilitary Court Watch is an NGO that monitors the treatment of Palestinian youths in military court. In their 2013 report “Children in Military Custody: Progress Report, Two Years On,” they documented the experiences of 105 Palestinian juveniles who had been subject to prosecution in the courts. Their research shows that only 5% of the 105 juveniles interviewed were given the opportunity to speak to a lawyer prior to or during their initial interrogation.

Using that figure of 5% as a guideline, we could be looking an estimated 475 to 665 adolescents a year who will not have access to a lawyer until their trial.

The report also provides clear insight into the upshot of having two different systems of law in the West Bank.

“The human failing I would most like to correct is aggression,” Hawking told contest winner Adaeze Uyanwah, according to the Independent. “It may have had survival advantage in caveman days, to get more food, territory or a partner with whom to reproduce, but now it threatens to destroy us all.”
