Israel keeps Palestinian inmates in cold weather as torture

The Palestinian Prisoner Society says Israel tortures the Palestinian inmates by putting them in outdoor detention amidst severe cold.

The group has filed an appeal with the Israeli High Court, calling on Israeli officials to provide adequate clothing and blankets for prisoners held in Israeli jails, as many of them are kept in outdoor prisons with no heat.

The appeal, which was rejected by the court, also included reports that Israeli interrogators use the practice as a form of torture.

According to the Palestinian prisoner groups, the move has put many prisoners at the risk of losing their lives or suffering severe frostbite due to cold, sleet and wind.

“The Israeli occupation is using the extremely cold weather to kill the Palestinian prisoners as its interrogators expose them to the cold weather in order to extract confessions,” said Issa Qaraqe, the head of the Palestinian committee for prisoners.

Qaraqe further urged international human rights organizations to intervene on behalf of Palestinian prisoners held by the Israeli regime.

Israeli authorities reported a similar incident last year when Palestinian children were placed in an outdoor cage during a storm.

Some 7,000 Palestinians, including 16 women and 250 children, are currently being held in Israeli prisons. Israeli forces arrested over two thousand of them last summer amid increasing tensions in the occupied West Bank and the besieged Gaza Strip.

Palestinian media earlier this month reported that prisoners residing in Israeli jails are suffering from serious health problems, yet they are not receiving proper medical treatment.

I really can not understand why this genocide has been allowed to continue for so long???


The scientists and technocrats paid by the nuclear, carbon, and chemical complexes will tell us that the eco-system was not subject to enough radiation contamination from Fukushima to cause crippling tippling-points in animals already at risk because of widespread habitat loss and destruction.

The scientist and technocrats paid by the nuclear, carbon, and chemical complexes will tell us that exposure can be measured and effects predicted using models (such as the ICRP) with bankrupt assumptions.

The scientists and technocrats paid by these powerful complexes will scratch their heads trying to explain why so many Pacific and North American species are experiencing sudden collapse events.

Hannah Arendt wasn't off with her formulation of the banality of evil.

So who or what is behind this "decision" to destroy the planet? While the herbicides and GMO's are certainly bad, they can be dealt with. But radiation is seemingly forever. Once let loose it can not be summed back to its origin. And once the animals and plants are gone they too will be gone forever. What a shame!

Through other interactions that I have outside of cyber-space I have lost all faith in humanity. There just aren't enough people out there who care. It's become that simple and that sad.
