    BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The recent detentions of three Palestinian journalists in the West Bank are not based on security complaints but legal charges filed by individuals, the spokesman of the West Bank security services said Sunday.

    "The Palestinian Authority's security services have no security-related problem with any journalist," Adnan Dmeiri told Ma’an.

    Reporter Yousef al-Shayeb was detained a week ago, and on Wednesday a Palestinian court extended his remand for 15 days. He is being held while under investigation for libel and defamation over a Jordanian newspaper article published in January.

    Ismat Abdul Khaliq was also detained this week after posting a number of comments on Facebook, and Tareq Khamis of Zaman press was briefly held on Sunday.

    Individual complaints?

    Abdul Khaliq and al-Shayeb were detained "upon orders by the Attorney General and judiciary over legal charges filed by other people," Dmeiri said. He said three charges have been filed against Abdul Khaliq, without elaborating on the petitioners.

    Earlier on Sunday, Palestinian Attorney General Ahmad al-Maghni said the preventive security had filed a complaint against Ismat Abdul Khaliq.

    She posted a number of insulting comments which accused President Mahmoud Abbas of betrayal and called for disbanding the Palestinian Authority. The exact charges were not clear.

    Al-Shayeb was jailed after a complaint filed by Foreign Minister Riyad al-Malki and Hael al-Fahoum, the envoy in Paris. His report in Al-Ghad newspaper documented corruption allegations against the Palestinian diplomatic delegation in France, the Palestinian National Fund and the foreign minister.

    Al-Malki on Thursday defended his role in the reporter's arrest, after the Palestinian journalists union held protests and called for members to boycott a press freedom prize announced by the PA days earlier.

    "I'm surprised some journalists reacted emotionally on behalf of their colleague without hearing the other side's case, or considering for a moment if Yousef al-Shayeb is the oppressor or the oppressed," the foreign minister told Ma'an.

    He maintains al-Shayeb knew beforehand of falsehoods in his report, which claims al-Malki illegally promoted a diplomat to the post of deputy ambassador despite having knowledge of his ties to foreign intelligence.

    Now if this place could just get the pair of you logged into this single thread. When you log into the forum you would be directed to this page only.

    You two would immediately cancel each other out and the forum would be so much better imo.

    Abbas left the government in June of 2007 and his official term in office ended in Jan. 2009.

    Neither Salem Fayyad nor any of the cabinet have been approved by the PLC as their constitution requires.

    The US backed illegal government in the West Bank needs to be removed.

    RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- PA security forces in the West Bank continued, during the past month, their arrest campaigns against resistance movements' activists and supporters especially Hamas and Islamic Jihad affiliates.

    Hamas said in a report on Sunday that those forces arrested 72 persons; most of them were ex-detainees, political activists, and university students.

    The movement said that the PA forces jailed hundreds of its activists following summary trials and exercised on them the worst psychological and physical torture.

    It noted that the Fayyad government continued freezing salaries of some employees and dismissing others because of their political affiliation.

    What are fakestinians doing in Jewish Judea and Samaria, which Jews have lived in for 3000 years until Jordan seized the land in 1948 and renamed it the west bank?

    Acts 1: Then they gathered around him and asked him, &#8220;Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?&#8221;
    He said to them: &#8220;It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.&#8221;
