PA official compares Israel’s treatment of Palestinian prisoners to how Nazis treated the Jews

"District Governor of Jerusalem, Adnan Husseini, called upon the international community yesterday to do what it must in view of the daily violations of human rights… During his meeting yesterday morning at his office with the Finnish representative to the PA, Martti Eirola, …[Husseini] said that our sons, sitting behind the occupation's bars, are exposed to a range of human rights violations that closely resemble a war of annihilation, like that which was waged against the Jews during the Nazi period."

Note: Husseini has just been named Minister for Jerusalem Affairs in Fayyad's new government, May 2012.
