"'I have been sexually abused and photographed. When I tried to travel to Jordan after my release, Israeli officer dumfounded me with the humiliating photos.."

By Samer Khuwayera & Hanadi Dwaikat

NABLUS - A Palestinian female freed from Israeli detention said more than 15 fellow Palestinian women were raped by Israeli interrogators to force them to confess to charges leveled against them and collaborate with the Israeli intelligence.

"Israeli investigators and intelligence officers keep video tapes of the raping to blackmail the female detainees," she told IslamOnline.net, requesting anonymity.

"I have been sexually abused and photographed. When I tried to travel to Jordan after my release and Israeli intelligence officer dumfounded me with the humiliating photos."

She asserted that this techniques has been used for years by the Israeli interrogators against Palestinian detainees.

"They have used this raping techniques before my detention and continue to use it until today," said the Palestinian woman who spent nine years of her life in Israeli detention......

13. The Israeli Torture Template: Rape, Feces and Urine-Dipped Cloth Sacks
Clues about worse photos and videos of abuse may be found in Israeli files about similar abuse of Palestinian and other Arab prisoners. In March 2000, a lawyer for a Lebanese prisoner kidnapped in 1994 by the Israelis in Lebanon claimed that his client had been subjected to torture, including rape. The type of compensation offered by Rumsfeld in his testimony has its roots in cases of Israeli torture of Arabs. In the case of the Lebanese man, said to have been raped by his Israeli captors, his lawyer demanded compensation of $1.47 million. The Public Committee Against Torture in Israel documented the types of torture meted out on Arab prisoners. Many of the tactics coincide with those contained in the Taguba report: beatings and prolonged periods handcuffed to furniture. In an article in the December 1998 issue of The Progressive, Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb reported on the treatment given to a 23-year old Palestinian held on "administrative detention." The prisoner was "cuffed behind a chair 17 hours a day for 120 days . . . had his head covered with a sack, which was often dipped in urine or feces. Guards played loud music right next to his ears and frequently taunted him with threats of physical and sexual violence." If additional photos and videos document such practices, the Bush administration and the American people have, indeed, "seen nothing yet."

2. These charges should be fully investigated
We know this happens, we do not know to what extent it happens.
Those found guilty of this horrible crime should be put to death.

9. The Palestine Chronicle is pretty credible as Palestinian site go
but it is from Islam Online. The Palestine Chronicle atleast isn't a right wing website run by repukes.

8. She ought to come forward for two reasons
Edited on Sat May-22-04 01:55 PM by Classical_Liberal
1)It will expose the racist swamp that is the Sharon administration 2)It will show the Islamic fundies how stupid they are for blaming women for the things creepy men do to them.

I forwarded this to the Times, the Washington Post, the LA times, the Guaridan and several leftist sites so more credible outlets should be picking up on it.

14. What's wrong with the Palestine Chronicle? Lol
Why would you read a paper written by the victims when the Anglo press so conveniently white-washes everything for us? The Palestinians should have no voice remember?

They're not real Semites. Never lived in Palestine- instead they just viciously appeared after a bunch of European colonialists "made the desert bloom". They're inveterate liars who thrust their children in the way of speeding bullets & LEAP into empty parking lots just as the missiles are about to hit because their only purpose in life is to make colonialists look bad.

Trust the plantation master my friend, the slaves are happy, well-fed and don't know how good they have it.

15. You have a problem with the woman being anonymous??
Rape is all about humiliation and power. A great many victims remain anonymous when incidents are reported for the reason that they've already been humiliated and outing themselves publicly would just lead to scorn being heaped on them by idiots who are quick to call rape victims liars. Over here recently, a woman who was gang-raped by a bunch of first grade footballers remained anonymous. That anonymity shouldn't ever be used as an excuse to discredit a woman's account of what happened. Nor should attacking the sources be seen as anything but a clumsy attempt to ignore violence against women. Sorry, John, but what would make you happy? Having a story like this appear in the right-wing Jerusalem Post and the racist Arutz Sheva would somehow make this woman's story credible for you? I doubt it, not that rags like that would publish anything like that anyway...
