Libel: Israel abuses prisoners
Libels
Since the Palestinian Authority was established it has systematically indoctrinated young and old to hate Israelis and Jews. Using media, education, and cultural structures that it controls, the PA has actively promoted religious hatred, demonization, conspiracy libels, etc. These are packaged to present Israelis and Jews as endangering Palestinians, Arabs, and all humanity. This ongoing campaign has so successfully instilled hatred that fighting, murder and even suicide terror against Israelis and Jews are seen by the majority of Palestinians as justified self-defense and as Allah’s will.


Throughout history bogus conspiracy accusations have been used to incite hatred, violence, and mass murder. The myriad conspiracy libels concerning Israel, Israelis and Jews are an integral part of the Palestinian Authority’s ongoing hate promotion. PA libels claim that Israel conspires to infect Palestinians with AIDS, spread drug addiction, conspired and successfully murdered Arafat, and more. The PA’s goal has been to inculcate hatred to the degree that fighting and murdering Jews and Israelis will be glorified as heroic self-defense.
Libel: Israel abuses prisoners
The PA is intensifying its longstanding libel campaign, falsely accusing Israel of conducting horrific Nazi-like medical experiments on prisoners. These lies include stories that prisoners are used as “guinea pigs for clinical testing of drugs and treatment-methods" and “inmates received injections … which caused their hair and facial hair to fall out permanently ... others lost their sanity… some are suffering from infertility." Israeli prisons are compared to Nazi camps, as expressed by PA Deputy Minister of Prisoners’ Affairs: “The conditions of our Palestinian prisoners are worse than the Auschwitzes of the Nazis, where Jewish detainees were held.” [PA TV (Fatah), Oct. 6, 2011]
  
These libels are essential tools to demonize Israel using the highly sensitive subject of Palestinian prisoners.

The following are examples of the prisoner libel:

Excerpt of an op-ed by Yahya Rabah, regular columnist for the official PA daily and member of the Fatah Leadership Committee in Gaza

Headline: "The Palestinian prisoners' movement is one of the largest symbols of freedom"
     "More than a million Palestinians have passed through the Israeli occupation's prisons throughout our ongoing path towards absolute independence and the realization of the independence of the State of Palestine with full sovereignty, whose capital is Jerusalem…
How many prisoners have entered prison not knowing how to read and write, and come out with a higher education [as] intellectuals? The Palestinian prisoners have amazed with their actions, their characteristics, and their virtues, and have even succeeded in having offspring while still imprisoned in their cells by smuggling their sperm and genes out of prison in order for them to be received by their wives’ wombs and to turn into fetuses afterwards!"
PLO prisoners’ affairs head: "The prisons are full of honorable cases of prisoners that are completing their bachelor’s and master’s degree studies" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 11, 2019
      "Director of [PLO] Commission of Prisoners and Released Prisoners' Affairs Qadri Abu Bakr said that the prisoners' will has overcome all of the occupation's steps to harm their determination and kill their aspirations through the punitive laws that it imposes on them that include all areas of their lives, and primarily the struggle against the prisoners' studies. This is by placing obstacles, confiscating books and writing implements, and banning the completion of their studies and registering at universities. Abu Bakr said this during a ceremony in which he and Vice [President] for Academic Affairs at An-Najah National University Dr. Muhammad Al-Amla presented a law degree to the relatives of prisoner Azmi Naffa (i.e., terrorist, wounded 4) from the Jenin district. Naffa – who has been imprisoned since 2015, is sentenced to 20 years, and is now in the Gilboa Prison – completed his legal studies behind bars. Abu Bakr said that there are dozens and hundreds of prisoners and released prisoners who have defeated the occupation through their studies and receiving their university degrees, and today the prisons are full of honorable cases of prisoners that are completing their bachelor’s and master’s degree studies from within their rooms and cells in the dark prisons."

Article in official PA daily claims Israeli prisons are “financial companies whose goal is to impoverish the prisoners,” which constitute “part of the occupation's colonialist economic project” and target Palestinian prisoners 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 11, 2018
Headline: "The occupation arrested 484 civilians in the month of August"

"The prisoner and human rights institutions noted as part of a fact sheet they published yesterday [Sept. 10, 2018] that… the total of what the PA pays for the prisoners’ purchases from the canteens in the prisons has reached approximately 2.7 million [Israeli] shekels per month, in other words, 400 shekels for each Palestinian prisoner. Most of the families are also forced to put additional sums into the accounts of their children in the prisons to fund their daily needs due to the terrible food and drink that the Israeli Prison Services provides them, in addition to the purchase of clothes, shoes, cigarettes, electrical appliances, and the like.
These large sums constitute an ongoing financial burden on the prisoners' families and the PA due to the high prices of the products in the canteens, which cost up to three or four times their original price outside the prison. This is because the occupation state has turned the prisons into financial companies whose goal is to impoverish the prisoners and their families, and also the institutions that take care of their affairs and provide them with sums evaluated at tens of millions of shekels per month.
The prisons’ economy constitutes part of the occupation's colonialist economic project, due to the repercussions it causes to the male and female prisoners in particular, and to Palestinian society as a whole (Palestinian and Israeli prisoners pay the same prices according to Addameer; see note below -Ed.). This is as the occupation is attempting to create a rift between the prisoners and the rest of Palestinian society by turning the prisoners into a financial burden for which the local society has to bear responsibility."
