Three Brief Lessons Learned from Al-Jazeera's Ahmad Manosur Detention and Release in Germany

  • The principle of “Rule of Law”, specifically at a country in a region where the principle emerged, requires an examination, given what happened. Albeit German judge confirmed arrest was “lawful”, no one so far knows based on what.
  • Security agency (an Arab world epidemic) seem to have hijacked the decision making at moment of arrest. That’s in an essentially western democratic state.
  • Journalists, regardless of Ahmad Mansour’s ideology or views; are not being looked at as only “the messenger(s)” but also implicated in the subject of the information itself
