Palestinian Minister Says Israel Conducts Medical Experiments on Prisoners
Issa Qaraqe, Palestinian Minister for Prisoners’ Affairs represented the Palestinian Authority. His slanderous comments accused Israel of torturing and raping little children and subjecting Palestinian detainees to medical experiments. Violence, he declared, was the Palestinian right and intention. Here are some of his words (UN translator, original in Arabic):
“I convey the greetings of families and prisoners in Israeli prisons and camps…. Israeli authorities since 1967 have detained …children, women, sick people, and disabled…UN resolutions have confirmed the right and legality of resistance of people … and supported national liberation movements to liberate from foreign occupation and control… Israel committed …war crimes and crimes against humanity against these prisoners… Israel …is using cruel and barbaric methods of torture, including on children from the moment of detention. Detention is done under the pretext of the fight against terrorism… The youngest child was only 8 years old… Some of them are subjected to sexual assaults… Thousands of medical experiments are conducted by Israeli pharmaceuticals against Palestinian detainees… The Israeli court system is inherently unjust.”
When he finished the Chairman of the UN Committee Diallo thanked him “for representing state of Palestine during this meeting.”
Thereafter the UN closed the meeting to members of the public. The discussions of the roundtable, with the exception of the opening and closing sessions, are open only to members of the Committee and the UN staff which services their obscene activities.
