Administrative Detention in Israel

Saraya.ps, the Islamic Jihad al-Quds Brigades website, has anÂ article about PIJ leader Abd al- Rahman Rabia Shihab, who was sentenced to life imprisonment in the Hadarim prison Israel.
While in prison, Shihab received a bachelor’s and master’s degree in sociology.
The article talks about how the Israeli authorities supposedly tried to stop him from taking these courses, but how he prevailed anyway. Which is really weird, because he received his degrees from Israel’s Open University and clearly he was allowed to take these classes by the Israeli prison authorities.
But, everyone knows that Palestinian Arab prisoners are routinely tortured, so perhaps the torture was scheduled while he was doing his homework.
