Artists Urge Israel to Release Palestinian Poet from House Arrest


More than 150 artists, authors, and cultural figures have banded together to urge Israel to release Dareen Tatour, a Palestinian poet, from house arrest. Tatour was charged with incitement to violence on October 11 for publishing her work on social media, including a poem titled “Resist My People, Resist Them” (“Qawim ya sha’abi, qawimhum”) that was posted on YouTube.
