Spoke to ijon today after failing to get hold of him for a while (remember to specify "tent no. 3" when you ask for him on the phone). He's feeling fine, although he still finds it hard to arrange a quiet place for himself to concentrate on his studies. He hopes that this will become easier once he's transferred to prison no. 6, but a decision on that matter is still to be made. Another decision that is still awaited is whether he'll be given a leave on Friday morning to attend a university exam. His hopes are high that both these requests will be granted, since he is receiving special attention from the prison staff, who are appreciative of his special situation as a conscientious prisoner.

Yet another illustration of how distinct Isræl is amongst Middle Eastern nations.

(Yes, in any of the other countries, the situation of a conscientious prisoner would be seen as special, but it would be a very different sort of specialness.)

Hey, shunra, still want to organize a letter-writing-campaign to save ijon's life as he is abused and beaten as a political prisoner?

My mother phantom_mom (QueenofMay@aol.com) edits a Jewish newspaper in New Jersey and would be interested in publishing some correspondence with ijon if that is possible!

With all due respect...

...to your Mom's interest, bram, perhaps she can make do with editing some gleanings from the extensive material already published here in ijon's LJ,
and let the guy devote himself to his university studies, as he's expressed this (via arnulf's updates plus my own phone conv with him earlier this week) as being his key focus at present?
