Subject: Information on Arrested Israeli Linguist

The Israeli linguist Idan Landau (MIT PhD 2000), whose work on control
theory and possessor ascension will be known to many Linguist readers, has
been imprisoned by the Israeli army for refusing reserve duty in the
occupied territories.

More information about Dr. Landau's arrest (including the statement that he
made at his trial and steps that concerned readers might wish to take) can
be found at the following link:
