Tortured in Sinai, Imprisoned in Israel

Israeli bruality!

by Stephen Lendman

A new Physicians for Human Rights-Israel (PHR-I) report is titled "Tortured in Sinai, Jailed in Israel." More on it below.

Separate and unequal defines longstanding Israeli policy. Arabs aren't wanted. Neither are non-Jewish immigrants or asylum seeker. Discriminatory laws target them. Fundamental rights are denied. Redress most often is impossible.

Even torture victims fleeing repression face enormous hurdles to gain entry. Israel spurns international law with impunity. It does what it wants unaccountably. It ignores international law. Protecting refugees and asylum seekers doesn't matter.

Article I of the 1951 UN Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees calls them:

"A person who owning to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, is outside the country of their nationality, and is unable to or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail him/herself of the protection of that country."

Post-WW II, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) was established to help them.

To gain legal protection, they must:

  • be outside their country of origin;

  • fear persecution;

  • be harmed or fear harm by their government or others;

  • fear persecution for at least one of the above cited reasons; and

  • pose no danger to others.
