Khader Adnan Mohammad Musa: Israeli Prisoner of Conscience

He and others are mercilessly treated. 

by Stephen Lendman

In 1948, brute force established Israel. In 1967, militarized occupation of one-fifth of former Palestine followed. 

An entire people suffer. Collective punishment is official policy. So are torture, violence, land theft, apartheid, injustice, and other forms of state-sponsored terror. 

They include imprisoning Palestinians for wanting to live free on their own land in their own country. As a result, since June 1967, over 750,000 Palestinians have been imprisoned.

Arrests occur regularly. Middle-of-the-night raids terrorize nonviolent men, women and children. Alleged "ticking bomb" ones are held in the name of "security." So are various other type political prisoners. Denied all rights, they're brutalized for praying to the wrong God.

They face torture and horrific prison conditions. International and Israeli laws are spurned.

Doing so constitutes blatant civil/human rights violations. B'Tselem said if Likud (and other) party members were held to the same standard, at least half their members would be administratively detained.

Lawless military tribunal trials follow. Those charged are guilty by accusation. Children fare no better. Some young as six are held for allegedly throwing stones. It's a catchall charge (like many others) to arrest anyone for any reason.

Once in custody, horrific mistreatment follows. Permanent scars remain. Entire families are traumatized. At issue always is who's next, for what reasons, and for how long.

Khader Adnan Mohammad Musa's Ordeal

Khader's one of hundreds of thousands mistreated. On December 17, 2011, at 3:30AM, dozens of Israeli soldiers stormed his home. He was violently seized in front of his children and ailing mother. In the process, face and back injuries occurred.

Blindfolding and painfully shackled, he was placed in a military jeep. Soldiers slapped and kicked him. Abuse continued until arriving at Dutan settlement. 

Transfer to Megiddo prison followed. In protest, Khader immediately went on hunger strike. In detention, interrogators insulted and humiliated him. After initially answering general questions, he refused to respond.

Nonetheless, interrogations continued for 10 days, excluding Mondays. On day four, Israeli Prison Service (IPS) authorities isolated him to inflict further punishment. Legal counsel and family visits were denied. So was information on alleged secret evidence.
