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.
