CAIRO (Ma'an) -- The Arab League released a report on Sunday focusing on Palestinian and other Arab prisoners currently in Israeli custody, according to the official Palestinian news agency Wafa.

Issued by the office of the Arab League's secretary general, the report highlights how the Arab League has been following up on the developments on the cases of Arab and Palestinian prisoners jailed in Israel.

More than 5,000 Palestinian and other Arab prisoners held in Israeli jails suffer repeated and ongoing violations of their rights, dire humanitarian conditions and abuse of their dignity, according to the report.

Although the majority of the detained are Palestinians, several dozen individuals from other Arab countries are also being held in Israeli prisons.

The report said that several Palestinian prisoners who were previously released were subsequently detained again by Israeli forces, who either imposed new sentences or forced prisoners to finish previous sentences despite the fact that they had already been pardoned and released.

Since 1967, more than 650,000 Palestinians have been detained by Israel, representing 20 percent of the total population and 40 percent of all males in the occupied territories.

The daily Al-Quds Al-Arabi recently revealed that dozens of Palestinians have been held incommunicado, without charge in Kuwaiti prisons since 1991, in retaliation for the PLO’s support of Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait About 200,000 were expelled at that time. According to the report, the Palestinian Authority has never approached the Kuwaitis concerning the fate of the prisoners. Hundreds more are all held in Syria and several have died. What are only ones held by israel mentioned?

But, I bet you, NONE of the Arab prisoners would rather exchange their stay in Israeli prisons for any prison in Arab countries! Not one!

This would be the sane Arab League that says ZERO to Bahrain on its repression on Shi'a? The 400,000 Palestinians in Lebanon banned from 27 jobs, civil service, owning property AND denied citizenship after 4 generations? Stays quiet as Jordan strips citizenship from Palestinians and denies them education and employment due to quotas? That has nothing to say about Mauretania where nearly 1/3rd of the people are enslaved? Noooo, Israel jails 5,000 out of 4.5 million Palestinians-what a joke.
