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:

Abu Bakr’s statements were made during the graduation ceremony of a course in international law and human rights for a group of 61 prisoners in the Nafha Prison… Abu Bakr expressed his pride in all the prisoners who have succeeded in turning the prisons into true schools, through the development of the study process with courses and classes and hundreds of them joining the Palestinian universities through distance learning…

Official PA TV program Palestine This Morning, on Palestinian prisoners, hosting released prisoner Muhammad Abu Rizq, who served a 13 year sentence in an Israeli prison

Released Palestinian prisoner Muhammad Abu Rizq: "Unfortunately, my sister, there is a policy of deliberate medical neglect by the Israeli Prison Service. There are no expert doctors there to take care of the prisoners, and in addition, there are a number of prisoners that unfortunately suffer from chronic diseases, and there is no treatment except for painkillers that God forbid cause death, and they are not provided with complete and full medicine. Non-diagnosis of diseases exacerbates the diseases among the prisoners, and therefore we demand that the official and unofficial organizations bring expert doctors into the [Israeli] prisons in order to check [the prisoners] and give them the full treatment that they want."
