  1. I am from vancouver,canada and i wanted to say that it is good that Sireen Khudiri Sawafteh is released from prison.She shouldn’t have been in prison to begin with.This woman should be completely free.There should be no house arrest and complete freedom on the Internet.Shame on the apartheid israeli gov. for arresting this woman.
