Institutionalized Barbarism: Official Israeli Policy

by Stephen Lendman

Israel is a rogue terror state.

A previous article discussed Arafat Jaradat. Shin Bet interrogators killed him. They tortured him to death. Independent autopsy results proved it. 

Israeli doctors were complicit. They collude in prison torture. They violate medical ethics doing so. It requires relieving pain and suffering. It's not about inflicting it.

The Lancet explained. It's a leading peer-reviewed medical journal. It's one of the world's best known. It dates from 1823.

It publishes original research. On March 9, it headlined "Israeli doctors accused of collusion in torture."

The Israeli Medical Association (IMA) denied involvement. It lied saying so.

Human rights advocates "say Palestinian prisoners have long suffered from beatings, sleep deprivation, prolonged and painful handcuffing, humiliation, and medical neglect - considered torture under international standards."

On February 18, Jaradat was arrested on suspicion of stone-throwing. It occurred last November. It related to Israel's eight-day Operation Pillar of Cloud aggression. Gazans were mercilessly attacked.

Palestinians say his belated arrest and interrogation reflect longstanding Israeli policy. It's "to coerce prisoners to become informants after their release."

Jaradat died days after his arrest. PA chief pathologist, Saber Aloul "said bruising on his body was evidence of torture." It was too obvious to miss.

Israel's health ministry disputed the findings. It said "no evidence" showed physical abuse or poisoning, "nor was it possible to determine his cause of death."

Whitewash is official Israeli policy. It happens every time. Convoluted reasons are invented. "Israeli officials had originally attributed his death to a heart attack."

They claimed "bruising and broken ribs were 'characteristic findings of a resuscitation, which the medical crew from the Israel Prison Service and Magen David Adom engaged in for 50 minutes in an effort to save his life.' "

Saying so was patently false.
