Palestinian teenager chooses prison over Israeli community service.

A Palestinian teenage Bassem Abdullah Siam aged 15 has handed himself into Jerusalem police on Wednesday to serve a 100 day prison sentence rather than carry  out  community service working for the occupation. 
The work is described as designed " to break the will of young men and boys" according to the Wadi Hilweh Information Centre.
Bassem was originally arrested on 15 March last year on his way to school, after allegedly throwing stones at Israeli soldiers.
A kid with guts, like many Palestinians nourishes the idea of living in freedom, dignity and a just peace.
