Abdulrahman al-Atwi arrived in the city of Riyadh on Thursday from the United States, where he had been deported off to, a few months ago by the Israeli forces. As reported by Al-Watan daily. They also added that the newspaper had met with him at the residence of his lawyer in the Capital of Saudi Arabia; however he refused to utter a single word. Al-Atwi’s legal counsel, Kateb al-Shimmari has stated that his client had been returned through the United States as there are no diplomatic links between the Muslims Kingdom and Israel. The lawyer added that Mr. Al-Atwi’s deportation had been arranged through the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for refugees.
The daily newspaper had also quoted a man named Musa, who was the brother of Al-Atwi, who stated that the Saudi authorities have done their best to facilitate the safe return of his brother, who had entered the kingdom without any questioning or briefing at the airport.The newspaper Al-Watan however did not state that what charges would be filed by Al-Atwi against the state of Israel or any other Israeli institution
Apart from this poor man who had to endure 7 years of imprisonment as a punishment for only getting lost in the desert, Israeli defense forces are notorious for their random detention of people, whether they are suspected of a crime or simply for questioning.Several western human rights groups have tried over the ages to expose the brutal methods used by the Israeli defense forces and the unfair verdicts given out to Muslim Arabs, whether they are men or boys, however this has not caused the state of Israel to show any leniency towards the Muslim or the Arab world.
The Saudi authorities deserve huge appreciation to what they have accomplished in the case of Al-Atwi. In many cases when two countries are at war or a cold war per se, like the entire Muslim world is engaged in with Israel. The countries do not look out for any prisoners caught form the other side. However the United States has paid a key part as a negotiator between the two sides which has ultimately allowed the release of the man, which would have previously been impossible.Many other men, women and children are still imprisoned in Israeli prisons, and their conditions and whereabouts are unknown. All f other Muslim World and also the United States should facilitate the release of all those who have been wrongfully imprisoned.
