Disappearing Prisoners: Official Israeli Policy


Israeli policy is contemptuous of rule of law principles and standards.

by Stephen Lendman

Israel is a rogue terror state. It's a serial abuser. It spurns rule of law principles. It mocks democratic values. 

It tolerates no criticism. It targets anyone challenging its authority. It does so against anyone considered threatening. Jews are as vulnerable as Muslims. 

Disappearing prisoners is one of many Israeli high crimes. They're longstanding, shocking, and monstrous.

Prisoner X reveals more about Israel's dark side. Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) broke the story. Correspondent Trevor Bormann covered it.

In early 2010, an unidentified man was incarcerated in Israel's "most secure prison cell."

"The guards taking him there had no idea who he was or what he'd done. What they did know was that the cell had been purpose designed and built for one previous occupant -- the assassin of former PM Yitzhak Rabin," Yigal Amir.

An unidentified prison service officer said:

The individual "is simply a person without a name and without an identity who is placed in complete and absolute isolation from the outside world." 

"We don't know if he gets visits, or if anyone even knows he's even in jail. There is confidentiality surrounding the detainee in every respect."

His Australian passport identified him as Ben Allen. What did Australia's government know about him and when?
