Suspected Jewish terrorist released

Monday, January 24, 2005 | 
An Israeli court has released a Jewish woman suspected of terrorist activities from jail and ordered that she be held under house arrest. Ultra-left wing activist Tali Fahima was held in administrative detention (without trial), a rare measure against Israeli Jews, on grounds that she passed information to the Al Aksa Martyrs Brigade, a notorious terrorist group. Fahima shocked Israelis by striking up a relationship with a top Al Aksa fugitive in the town of Jenin, Zakaria Zubeidi, and offered herself as a “human shield” to protect him. Court papers say she translated classified military documents for the terrorists, warning them of army plans to track down fugitives. Left-wing groups hailed her release as a victory.
