3 Arab Israelis arrested

A gag order was removed Monday from the indictment of three Arab Israeli residents of east Jerusalem for suspected membership in the Muslim Brotherhood, a terror organization. The three, Mahmoud Arnaut (30), Nasser Hadmi (40) and Abed Abu al-Mafalfel (41), came before the court three weeks ago accused of raising funds for the group and distributing anti-Israel propaganda. The indictment includes charges of membership in a terror group and affiliation with an illegal group. The men were active in raising funds for families whose homes were demolished. The State Prosecution asked the court to remand all three until the conclusion of the legal proceedings against them.
