Libel: Israel abuses prisoners
Libels
Since the Palestinian Authority was established it has systematically indoctrinated young and old to hate Israelis and Jews. Using media, education, and cultural structures that it controls, the PA has actively promoted religious hatred, demonization, conspiracy libels, etc. These are packaged to present Israelis and Jews as endangering Palestinians, Arabs, and all humanity. This ongoing campaign has so successfully instilled hatred that fighting, murder and even suicide terror against Israelis and Jews are seen by the majority of Palestinians as justified self-defense and as Allah’s will.


Throughout history bogus conspiracy accusations have been used to incite hatred, violence, and mass murder. The myriad conspiracy libels concerning Israel, Israelis and Jews are an integral part of the Palestinian Authority’s ongoing hate promotion. PA libels claim that Israel conspires to infect Palestinians with AIDS, spread drug addiction, conspired and successfully murdered Arafat, and more. The PA’s goal has been to inculcate hatred to the degree that fighting and murdering Jews and Israelis will be glorified as heroic self-defense.
Libel: Israel abuses prisoners
The PA is intensifying its longstanding libel campaign, falsely accusing Israel of conducting horrific Nazi-like medical experiments on prisoners. These lies include stories that prisoners are used as “guinea pigs for clinical testing of drugs and treatment-methods" and “inmates received injections … which caused their hair and facial hair to fall out permanently ... others lost their sanity… some are suffering from infertility." Israeli prisons are compared to Nazi camps, as expressed by PA Deputy Minister of Prisoners’ Affairs: “The conditions of our Palestinian prisoners are worse than the Auschwitzes of the Nazis, where Jewish detainees were held.” [PA TV (Fatah), Oct. 6, 2011]
  
These libels are essential tools to demonize Israel using the highly sensitive subject of Palestinian prisoners.

The following are examples of the prisoner libel: 
PA official: Terrorist prisoners who together killed 12 deserve pity on Ramadan because "the holiday is bitter and difficult" in the Israeli prisons 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 13, 2015
Headline: "In the homes of the prisoners the atmosphere and joy of the holiday is missing"
     "After 33 years of imprisonment, Eid El-Fitr this year, 2015, will be the 65th holiday of the prisoners Karim Younes and his cousin Maher Younes from the village of Arah in the 1948 territories (i.e., Israel) while still behind the walls and bars of the occupation's prisons... Director of PLO Commission of Prisoners' Affairs Issa Karake explained that... inside the prison, the holiday is bitter and difficult, as the [Israel] Prison Service does not honor the religious and social events of prisoners, forbids group holiday prayers in prison, and prevents bringing in sweets and special dishes for the holidays. Despite this, the prisoners try to overcome their difficult situation through simple ceremonies like holiday prayer, internal visits between rooms, blessing each other, and preparing simple, easy sweet baked goods, and thus send a message to the [Israeli] Prison Service, that they have the right to celebrate the holiday and have hope that their next celebration will be their freedom.
He added: 'The holiday is very difficult for many Palestinian homes, such as the home of the prisoner couple Ibrahim Agbaria and Muna Qa'adan, and the female prisoner released only two weeks ago, Samaher Zayn Al-Din, who left behind her husband Nader Zayn Al-Din and her three brothers, Nazih, Ahmad, and Abd Al-Rahman Othman. This is in addition to the Abu Hmeid family from the Al-Amari refugee camp, which includes four imprisoned brothers, three of them serving life sentences.'"

PA daily reports on conference claiming Israel carries out “surgeries and medical experiments” on prisoners 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, June 16, 2015
Headline: “The ‘Creations That Overcame the Chains’ conference opened with a call to refer the prisoners’ issue to the International Criminal Court”
     “Speakers called to refer the prisoners’ issue to the International Criminal Court… This was during the fifth annual conference Creations That Overcame the Chains which opened yesterday, Monday [June 15, 2015] by the Abu Jihad Center for Prisoners’ Affairs at the Al-Quds university, in cooperation with the Modern University College…
Among the participants were members of the PLO Executive Committee and Fatah’s Central Committee, leaders of national forces, academics, released prisoners, representatives of human rights organizations and clerics… In the conference, a short film about sick prisoners was presented, telling the story of Martyr and released prisoner Jaafar Awad…
The film showed the prisoners’ anguish inside the prison cells, the barbaric treatment of the prison guards towards the prisoner, and the surgeries and medical experiments carried out by the so-called ‘prison doctors,’ which was the cause of the Martyrdom-death of prisoner Jaafar Awad, after he was given an insulin injection.”
PLO: Proposed Israeli law banning prisoners from calling their families is “racist” and against human rights 
Source: WAFA, official PA news agency, June 1, 2015
Headline: “The [PLO] Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs condemned the punishing of prisoners and stone throwers”
     “The [PLO] Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs condemned today [June 1, 2015], Monday morning, the fact that the Israeli Ministerial Committee for Legislation of the extremist Israeli government supported two bills directed against the Palestinian nation and its prisoners. The first decision (i.e., proposal) is to impose excessive punishments on stone throwers, and the second is a ban on prisoners calling their families. The Commission stated: ‘The forcing of racist laws such as these upon the Palestinian nation and its prisoners expresses the direction of [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s new extremist right-winged government. Israel’s government confirms day after day that it is a body that does not respect [the fact] that the Palestinian individual is human, and that it thinks itself to be above all the norms, laws, and principles of human rights. It should be noted that the current Israeli law imposes imprisonment of up to 20 years on whoever throws stones at someone on a road or in his car, but the prosecution must prove that the thrower had the intention to harm the driver, or cause damage to the car and threaten their security. The bill grants the court the authority to impose imprisonment of 10 years on whoever throws stones, explosives, or objects at a moving car. The law only requires of the prosecution that it prove that the thrower had criminal intent, and that he knew that what he was doing could endanger the driver or the vehicle, without a need to prove that he intended to cause them damage.”

Note: Israeli Justice Minister (from May 2015) Ayelet Shaked is promoting legislation aimed at increasing the punishment to stone-throwers, in order to provide legal tools to handle situations the current legislation does not cover.
PA official: Israel has a policy "of medical negligence and medical experiments" against Palestinian prisoners 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Apr. 13, 2015
Official PA TV program Panorama of the Hour hosted the director of the PLO’s Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs and PA Parliament Member Issa Karake:
Director of the PLO Prisoners’ Affairs Commission and PA Parliament Member Issa Karake: “Prisoner Jaafar Awad came out of prison sick and suffering from several dangerous diseases introduced into his body in prison.”
PA TV host: “Why did the Israeli hospitals refuse to hospitalize Martyr (Shahid) Jaafar Awad and treat him?”
Issa Karake: “Israeli hospitals not admitting Palestinian patients is nothing new, hence the Palestinian patient, that is, the Palestinian prisoner, suffers while trying to get treatment… it seems that a deadly virus was introduced into Awad’s body in prison… Prisons have become the source of an epidemic, a source of death and a source of dissemination of diseases in the bodies of the prisoners. There is a policy of medical negligence and medical experiments: In the 1990s, the Israeli Minister of Science (see note) admitted having given licenses to more than a thousand Israeli drug companies to test medications on Palestinian detainees.”

Israel as “systematic policy” conducts medical experiments on Palestinian prisoners, sometimes giving them poison

      “The only term to describe the policy Israel implements through its Prison Service [prisons] holding thousands of prisoners, is ’post-dated death.’
If the sick prisoner doesn't die within the walls of his cell, he may die shortly after leaving prison. In addition to their medical negligence, whether by failing to provide prisoners proper medical care or by delaying the sick prisoner’s transfer to medical care – the occupation authorities conduct medical experiments on the prisoners, giving them medicines and perhaps poison.”

Israel’s treatment of Palestinian prisoners “more abominable than the atrocities [committed by] Nazism” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 28, 2015
Op-ed by Yahya Rabah, columnist for the official PA daily and a member of the Fatah Leadership Committee in Gaza:
     “If we were to monitor the occupation’s activity against our heroes in the prisons, we would see things more abominable than the atrocities [committed by] Nazism at its moral and human low point: There is the targeting of Palestinian children through imprisonment; there is administrative detention without trial or charges that continues for years; there is intentional medical neglect leading to death; released [prisoners] are arrested again and their previous sentences are re-imposed or increased; there is psychological torture by withholding visits, solitary confinement, deprivation of sunlight, and sudden searches that turn the lives of the convicted prisoners into an intolerable hell; and there are faulty and intentional medical procedures that cause handicaps, as well as thousands of other additional details that clearly show that the State of Israel lives off aggression alone.”

PA daily: Prisoner’s medical condition was “intentionally neglected” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 27, 2014
     “[PA] Minister of Prisoners’ Affairs Shawqi Al-Issa visited released prisoner Na'im Younes Al-Shawamreh, 40, at his home in the city of Dura in the Hebron [district], after his return from treatment in Germany. Al-Shawamreh suffers from muscular dystrophy. Al-Shawamreh was released several months ago as part of the third group of prisoners arrested before the Oslo Accords, after having served 18 years behind bars, during which time he became afflicted with muscular dystrophy. His medical condition was intentionally neglected over the past few years, to the point where he can no longer speak. At the end of his visit, Al-Issa awarded Al-Shawamreh a plaque of honor for his self-sacrifice and great struggle.”

Note: Na’im Al-Shawamreh was arrested on March 14, 1995 for planting an explosive device. The device exploded and killed Yossi Hayoun, a police sapper, while he was defusing it (June, 1993). Al-Shawamreh was serving a life sentence, but was released in December 2013 as one of the 104 terrorists whom Israel agreed to release to fulfill the PA's precondition for renewing negotiations.
In August 2013, Israel agreed to release 104 Palestinian terrorists from prison, which was the PA's precondition for renewing peace talks. The terrorists were released in stages. The first group of 26 was released on Aug. 13, 2013. The second group of 26 was released on Oct. 30, 2013. The third group of 26 was released on Dec. 30, 2013. The fourth group was scheduled to be released on March 29, 2014, but Israel delayed their release while negotiating the terms for continuation of the peace talks. When the PA submitted requests for admission as a state to several international bodies, Israel cancelled the release.

Abu Ein disclosed that Israel may be ‎doing this intentionally in order to wipe out ‎and exterminate the prisoners, and ‎demanded that they be provided ‎protection quickly, either through their ‎transfer to safer areas or through their ‎immediate release.”‎
