The police have arrested a prominent Israeli Arab named Ameer Makhoul, and have cast a gag order over the entire story. The Israeli media is doing its best to report without reporting. (If this blog goes offline, well, bye bye....).
I have nothing to say about the matter itself at the moment, since there's no real information out there, not in Israel and not abroad. Oodles of speculation, however: which is why I wish our security agencies would take a course in Media 101, and figure out if these gag orders are worth the damage they do. For days on end they leave the media to speculate about how awful and anti-democratic and fascist and totalitarian we are; eventually the gag order will be lifted and it may well turn out that there are very real allegations behind the arrest. That's what happened last time, in the Anat kamm case. So why be so inept on the media side of the story?
