Arab youths maintained uniform silence over the weekend, following the news of the death of a prisoner that being held in a Palestinian Authority jail in Jericho on Friday.
Ayman Mohammad Sharif Samara, 40, died while being detained on charges of assault, Palestinian Authority attorney general Muhammad Abdul-Ghani al-Uweiwi told Ma’an.
Initial reports indicate that Samara, who is from Jenin, suffered from diabetes, hypertension and other medical conditions.
He was arrested on Friday and transferred to a nearby hospital, where he passed away, al-Uweiwi said.
No one stormed out to the streets to point out (using words and rocks) that Samara also suffered from intense jailing by PA officials.
But, hey, the PA attorney general denied that the prisoner was tortured or beaten during interrogations and said that an autopsy would be performed and the results made public once completed.
An investigation into his death has already begun, al-Uweiwi added.

Why would Israel want a ceasefire. It would just signify our weakness that we blinked first.
Please, the Yeshiva boys should pray and study more and harder for this endangered young soldier!
Israeli’s are a religious people; even secular Jews believe that God is active in this world.
The beauty of a Jew is his relationship to other Jews and his involvement with Medinat Yisrael.
A ceasefire not only gives Hamas a victory, it will destroy the morale of the IDF and the country.
So-called US military aid props up US military industries while disposing of surplus supplies.
If Hamas would simply stop firing rockets into Israel, all the carnage would stop instantly.

Rivlin is thought of as a warm, friendly uncle, one of the family.
In Islam, there is no such thing as peace with accursed dhimmis as the Muslims refer to us infidels.
A reader claimed the Disengagement from Gaza was good, because it reduced the number of murdered Israelis. Examining the numbers tells a different story…
JoeSettler points out that most Gazans want to leave, and most Jews want to go back home to Gush Katif. How about a solution that actually resolves the conflict?
These are the photos of our soldiers (and a citizen) killed in action during the current IDF ground operation in Gaza.
