Felesteen reports that some self-described "prisoner specialist," Abdel Nasser Farwana, says that that 222 Palestinians have been "martyred" inside Israeli prisons since 1967.

By his count, 75 were "deliberately killed," while 7 died from being shot (presumably before arrest,) and 67 from medical negligence, and 73 from torture.

Amazingly, not one died from illness or natural causes, according to Farwana.

But assuming that his total figure of 222 dead is not a fiction like his other statistics, that compares more than favorably with the death rate in prison against nearly every nation on the planet.

222 dead over 53 years is 4.1 deaths per year. If we assume a constant rate of 5000 prisoners (even though it used to be MUCH higher) that is less than one prison death per thousand per year.

In England and Wales, the rate averages 4 deaths per thousand annually. And worldwide, every single region has a significantly higher total prisoner death rate than the rate of Palestinians in Israeli prisons of less than 100 per 100,000:

One other fascinating statistic: the number of suicides by Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisons is apparently zero. For comparison, the rate of suicides in every Scandinavian country and many Western European countries is higher than the total death rate of Palestinians in Israeli custody.

If things are so desperate in Israeli prisons, then why aren't prisoners killing themselves as they do in Western countries with the most enlightened prisoner policies? And why is it easier to kill yourself in Scandinavian prison than to die of any reason in the supposedly horrible Israeli prisons?

It sounds like Israeli prisons are among the very safest prisons in the world, even if you believe the worst statistics of a biased Hamas pseudo-watchdog.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
