I suspect not all Palestinian prisoners are terrorists with blood on their hands. If thats true, perhaps someone should speak up. Israel holds 11,000 Palestinians in prison, many with no charges. According to EU Parliament resolution of 4Sept08, among the 11,000 prisoners are hundreds of women and children, most arrested in the occupied West Bank. According to the Convention of Rights of the Child, a child is defined as under age of 18. Palestinian children are treated as adults at 16 and often kept in inappropriate conditions. Around 1,000 prisoners are held on administrative detention orders, without charge, trial or rights of defense, and detention orders are often prolonged for years. Human Rights reports state Palestinian prisoners are subject to abuses and torture. Even 48 elected members of the Palestinian Legislative Council are in prison. Mistreated women prisoners do not have access to adequate medical care. Do you think none of them could be released?
