Amer Jubran might sit indefinitely in detention without charges. Or he may be brought up at any time and charged with “terrorism” before the State Security Court, a rubber stamp court. If so, his lawyer might be told the charges a day or two before the sham trial, which then leads to inevitable conviction–a mere formality. Only a concerted political campaign that gets widespread international attention can make any difference. It’s up to us to create enough visibility to make that possible.
