Whitewashing Israeli Murder by Torture
Israel tortures Palestinian prisoners.
by Stephen Lendman
Torture is official Israeli policy. It's longstanding. Palestinian suffering explains best. Thousands every year are subjected to cruel and inhumane treatment. Their physical and emotional scars bear witness.
Accountability is long overdue. Arafat Jaradat is Israel's latest victim. Israel tortured him to death. His body bore clear signs. Autopsy evidence proved it.
Severe upper body bruising, blisters, and blot clots were visible. Multiple broken bones in his neck, ribs, spine, arms and legs were discovered.
Israel initially attributed his death to cardiac arrest. On February 28, Haaretz headlined "Death of Palestinian in Israeli jail not due to abuse or poisoning, autopsy finds."
Israel's Health Ministry said so. It lied. Alleged findings turned truth on its head. Institute of Forensic Medicine officials said Jaradat's cause of death remains undetermined.
