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:

This is [being done] through shocking steps, degrading treatment, and turning them into spoils in order to break them nationally and humanly.
Karake said that Israel has turned into a beastly state in its conduct towards the prisoners, due to its racist laws that harm the dignity and rights of the prisoner, and oppose international law and all of the humanitarian laws and laws of morality.”

Karake continued: 'Israel does not recognize the application of the Geneva Conventions to the prisoners and their legal description as national freedom movement prisoners, applies racist and military laws to them, and is managing an international propaganda campaign of incitement against the prisoners in order to isolate them and keep any assistance or support away from them. Therefore, it is necessary to hurry to provide legal protection to the prisoners and to force it (i.e., Israel) to recognize them as freedom prisoners and legitimate fighters.'"
