    but it is. It is astonishing that an entire nation can be so willingly ignorant. Just go an read the annual reports on Israel and the occupied territories from Amensty Internatinal, Human Rights Watch, Betshelem, etc and you will see it is all true! But the brainwashed citizens are still ignoring the facts, looking away and find irrational arguments for denying it (all international human rights organisations are anti-zionist, anti-semetical, etc) Israelis, this is not normal, this is not justice, this is not how a democracy should look like, even in the harshest of circumstances. Many authors in Haaretz have pointed out that Israel is at a cross roads between democracy and ultranationalist theocracy. This is the time that all Israelis that favor true democracy stand up against the torture of IDF prisoners. Don't let your country go down the drain!
