Zionist regime tortures Palestinian children


Cruel and unusual treatment violates international law. Torture in all forms is absolutely prohibited at all times, under all circumstances with no allowed exceptions. What you heard was taken from an article written by Stephen Lendman. Stephen Lendman is a writer, syndicated columnist, activist, News TV personality, and radio show host.
Since summer 2005 he has been writing on vital world and national topics, including war and peace, American imperialism, corporate dominance, political persecutions, and a range of other social, economic and political issues. The following is excerpts of his new article titled, “Testimonies prove Israel tortures Palestinian children.”

On August 22, B’Tselem (The Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories) headlined “Abuse and torture in interrogations of dozens of Palestinian minors in the Israel Police Etzion Facility.”
Previous articles discussed torturing, abusing, and otherwise mistreating Palestinian children young as 10 and sometimes even younger. In July, Israeli regime arrested and terrorized a five-year old boy.
Family members are threatened not to intervene. They’re beaten if they try. Children are violently abused.
They’re blindfolded, shackled and beaten. They’re threatened with much worse. Sexual threats and abuse are common. So are electro-shocks and much more.
Nothing’s too outrageous to employ. Children are interrogated without counsel. They’re treated like adults. They face wrongful charges. It doesn’t matter. They’re considered guilty by accusation. It’s standard Israeli practice. Police states operate this way. Israel’s one of the worst.

Cruel and unusual treatment violates international law. Torture in all forms is absolutely prohibited at all times, under all circumstances with no allowed exceptions. The Convention on the Rights of the Child mandates they be kept safe from harm. Read more: (http://english.irib.ir/analysis/articles2/item/117424-israel-tortures-palestinian-children)
