RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Amnesty international on Wednesday demanded Israel to release or charge all Palestinians administratively detained in its jails and to stop ignoring its repeated appeals in this regard.

The administrative detention law is a relic from the British mandate over Palestine before the emergence of the Zionist entity in the area and it permitted the detention of Arabs without charge or trial on indefinitely renewable military orders; however, Israel still exploits this law against the Palestinians until today.

“Administrative detainees, like many other Palestinian prisoners, have been subjected to violations such as the use of torture and other ill-treatment during interrogation, as well as cruel and degrading treatment during their detention, sometimes as punishment for hunger strikes or other protests,” Amnesty said in a report on Wednesday.

Dancing With Palestinians

I grew up in Israel and served as an IDF officer. It took me years to realize that we had been brought up on lies, myths and propaganda and that Palestinians are no different from native Americans, blacks in S.
