Detained Palestinian Cartoonist Sentenced And Fined

Someone forwarded to me a wire story found here that says the detained Palestinian cartoonist Muhammad Saba'aneh has been sentenced to several months in jail and asked to be paid a fine on a charge in Israeli court of consorting with "enemy entities." He had been picked up after a border crossing in mid-February.

The devastating thing in that article may be that the family is actually relieved by the progression of the case out of the interrogation phase. The cartoonist is well-known for his political cartoon work in that region; no strong connection between that work and this prosecution has been established.
