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: 
PA Minister of Foreign Affairs claims imprisoned terrorists who attacked civilians are "prisoners of war" who suffer from "inhumane conditions" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Apr. 18, 2017
Headline: "Popular, Arab, and international support among the prisoners, and a warning to the occupation against oppression"
     "[PA] Minister of Foreign Affairs Dr. Riyad Al-Malki said that the ministry has called on its diplomats worldwide to defend the prisoners' rights and monitor with great interest the developments of the unlimited hunger strike together with the relevant states and bodies and human rights organizations around the world…
He added that the humanitarian demands of the prisoners are justified, as they are humanitarian demands and not political ones, as the prisoners are demanding their rights as prisoners of war according to international law.
Al-Malki emphasized that the strike is meant to shine a spotlight on the tragic state of the Palestinian prisoners of war imprisoned in the Israeli prisons and the inhumane conditions of their imprisonment."

The following is a list of demands delivered ahead of a hunger strike by terrorist prisoners set to begin on Prisoner’s Day, April 17, 2017, which is being led by Marwan Barghouti – a terrorist prisoner who is serving 5 life sentences for orchestrating three shooting attacks in which 5 were murdered. Barghouti has been elected PA Parliament member and Fatah Central Committee member while in prison. The original list of demands was published in Arabic by the Israeli news agency Ynet on April 4, 2017, after the agency received it from the Israeli Prison Service management. It was noted that two of the demands are deemed critical by the prisoners: the demand to install public telephones, and the demand to bring back the second monthly family visits organized by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), which the ICRC decided to cut in May 2016.

“The prisoners’ demands

Headline: “Prisoner Marwan Barghouti: I hope [to achieve] Martyrdom-death (Shahada) twice for this great people”

He called this step The Battle of Freedom and Dignity. In a statement he presented a series of humanitarian demands connected to improving the living conditions of all the male and female prisoners who are in the prisons.
Fifteen years after he was kidnapped and arrested by the occupation forces, Barghouti has understood that the occupation government is trying to decide the battle against the prisoners in the prisons by controlling them and turning them into mere ghosts and numbers, and by negating their symbolism as legal fighters and freedom prisoners who have fought and sacrificed for freedom, dignity, and independence…"

Therefore, it is necessary to hurry to provide legal protection to the prisoners and to force it (i.e., Israel) to recognize them as freedom prisoners and legitimate fighters.'"
