Social Holiness Concerns: the youngest Palestinian Political Prisoner
November 6, 2018 / By Dianne Roe
Shadi Farah had just turned 12 years old when he and a friend were taken into Israeli police custody in December 2015 because Israeli settlers complained they looked suspicious. Under interrogation and torture Shadi "confessed" that he wanted to stab a soldier. No actual stabbing, or attempt at stabbing had taken place. Yet Shadi was charged and sentenced to prison. Almost three years later Shadi is still in detention. His birthday was Monday, Nov. 5.
His mother wants people around the world to not forget him.
This Sunday remember him in your mission moment. Learn more about him and the other Palestinian children in Israeli jails at
Happy birthday Shadi. We won't forget you!
