Israeli Guards Rape Palestinian Women

arielnietzsche:

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. I have been sexually abused and photographed. When I tried to travel to Jordan after my release and Israeli intelligence officer dumfounded my 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. She also asserted that Palestinian women shy away from reporting such “disgrace” due to the sensitivity of the conservative Palestinian community. The Israelis also, she added, threaten to widely circulate the rape images if any of us take her complains to the public or the press.

The sexual abuse practices are not restricted to detained Palestinian women alone. In a phone all from an Israeli jail, a Palestinian man told IOL he has not been allowed to put on any cloths since his detention eight months ago. “I haven’t worn my clothes all this period. They (Israeli guards) searched continue to search such around the clock and if we resist they torture us.”

Replica

“ Israel , through the Shabak, violates the international convention against the torture which stipulates that all parties should take the necessary legislative, administrative and judicial measures to prevent torture under its jurisdiction,” said a Palestinian human rights researcher.

Shin Bet, also known as the General Security Services or Shabak, is Israel ’s domestic security agency. “The convention clearly states that parties should not exploit extraordinary circumstances, such as war, a threat to wage war or domestic political instability, as pretexts for torture,” Sameh El-Sayehn told IOL.

He asserted that the U.S. soldiers’ sexual abuse of Iraqi detainees in Abu Gharib was simply “a replica of a long-running Israeli practice”. “Shabak has more than 25 different torture techniques to extract confessions from Palestinian detainees,” El-Sayehn said. “The nudity technique used by the Americans against Iraqi detainees is a long time Israeli favorite but unfortunately pictured never surfaced to expose the barbarism and brutality of a country bragging about being a democracy oasis.”

El-Sayeh indicated that Israeli guards “undress Palestinian female detainees and tie them to beds for long periods.” The situation in men prisons is not less humiliating, added the Palestinian researcher. “Palestinian men are held naked in front of each other and Israeli soldiers. Those who refuse to take of their clothes are brutally beaten.”

At least seven thousands Palestinians, including scores of women, are held by Israeli occupation forces in detention centers and jails.

Why the hell can’t you understand that?!

^ This is example of BAD rape joke.  Basically a constant reminder of the worst experience of their lives……so non-rape victims can revel at the wordplay.And no possibility of trigger warnings.  

Isn’t every rape joke an example of a BAD rape joke?

There is no such thing as a “good” rape joke. Even if you put in a trigger warning, which would still not make telling the joke even remotely ok, you are still perpetuating rape culture. You’re still reinforcing the idea that it’s ok to take these traumatic experiences and make light of them. What, telling rape jokes exclusively in the company of people with no first hand experience of the situation means it’s ok? That you’re not doing anything wrong? No, absolutely not.

Teen girl chased by street gang calls 911. When the cops arrive they cuff her, throw her in the back of their car, and punch her repeatedly in the face

gloria-swanson:

stfusexists:

And now, in what seems to be your hourly dose of police brutality (the click through link has a graphic picture, just be aware):

beatyourselfup:

Abbotsford Police have recommended an assault charge be laid against a Williams Lake RCMP officer who allegedly punched a handcuffed teenage girl repeatedly in the face while she was in the back of a police cruiser last year.

Jamie Haller, 17, was running in fear from a Williams Lake street gang on the night of Sept. 10 and asked a passerby to call 911.

Jamie managed to call her mother, Martina Jeff, who jumped into her car and went looking for Jamie - who had never been in trouble with the law before.

When Martina found her, Jamie was surrounded by police officers, on the ground in handcuffs, and in the midst of a panic attack.

Jeff said she saw the police handle Jamie roughly as they put her in the back of a cruiser, where she began kicking the window.

Jeff said she heard Const. Andy Yung threaten Jamie if she didn’t stop kicking the window.

He then joined Jamie in the back, where, Jeff said, she saw Yung repeatedly punch her daughter in the face.

This is not the first time Const. Yung has been accused of bad behaviour.

According to newspaper reports, Yung was assigned to security detail at a conference of defence ministers in Banff in Sept. 2008.

He was off-duty on the night of Sept 5, when he got drunk and called his ex-girlfriend from his hotel room. The call left him in tears.

Yung then fired a shot from his service pistol into the ceiling of his room at the Banff Springs Hotel. He called 911 and said he had accidentally fired his handgun.

The Ottawa Citizen reports that Yung had been illegally using the national police database to keep tabs on his ex-girlfriend.

this is like the 10th story I’ve read about a B.C. RCMP officer assaulting someone in the past three years, and it’s always a POC/woman.

ETA, from a Tyee article: 

“We keep getting called about the Williams Lake RCMP,” says BCCLA executive director David Eby. ” I don’t know what’s going on there but, I do know that there’s a long history of conflict between Aboriginal communities there and the RCMP.

In September of last year, the BCCLA called for an investigation into the Williams Lake detachment for three separate incidents of alleged excessive force involving three Aboriginal men. An investigation is currently underway.
