PA minister accuses Israel of "silently massacring" prisoners

Palestinian Authority Minister of Prisoner Affairs Issa Qaraqe has been busy lately spreading blood libels about Israeli prisons.

Palestine Press Agency quotes him as saying that there are 18 prisoners now who are suffering from incurable diseases like cancer, and says that these diseases are being injected by Israelis. He is also quoted as saying that 60 prisoners have died from serious illnesses in Israel prisons - since 1958!

That sounds like a pretty good record to me!

In addition, he calls this supposed policy a "silent massacre."

A different spokesman for the ministry last year accused Israel of "deliberately injecting sick Palestinian prisoners with infected needles, and of giving them poisonous medicines."

As usual, they have no real evidence for these accusations, but they call on the WHO and others to open up investigations. Because they know that they'll always find a Jenny Tonge to back them up.
