Palestinian Hamas lawmaker displays papers to media after Muhammad Abu-Teir arrives at the courtroom at the magistrate's court in Jerusalem July 1, 2010. Israeli police arrested Abu-Teir in his Jerusalem neighbourhood on 30 June, saying he was there illegally after Israel revoked his residency permit over his hardline Islamist affiliation. The arrest of Abu-Teir looked likely to sharpen international criticism of the Jewish state's plan to deport him along with three other Hamas politicians from East Jerusalem. Photo by Mahfouz Abu Turk
