Break the Children’s Bones: How Israel Tortures, Maims and Kills Palestinians

“Israel must be like a mad dog, too dangerous to bother.”

Moshe Dayan, Israeli general

So what is President Donald Trump doing to put a stop to the appalling cruelties in Occupied Palestine that form the subject matter of the video we are about to see? 

The answer is — nothing.

On the contrary, by making his fanatically Zionist son-in-law Jared Kushner his Middle East envoy, this Zionist puppet of a president is openly promoting the sickening tortures inflicted on Palestinians on an almost daily basis — such as the deliberate shooting of Palestinian women in their vaginas, the premeditated blinding and maiming of Palestinian children, and the systematic crushing of men’s testicles in Israeli torture prisons.

Nothing new here of course in regard to testicle crushing. After all, they did it at Nuremberg. If they did it once to the defeated Germans, they are certainly capable of doing it again to the weak and helpless Palestinians. I am referring of course to the American judges at Nuremberg, most of whom were Jewish, and who took a savage delight in torturing their German prisoners of war to death — not only crushing their testicles but making sure the hangings were botched and that their victims were slowly strangled to death with the maximum degree of excruciating pain.

What makes matters worse at the present time, 72 years later, is that we have it on record that President Trump has come out openly in support of torture.

When asked what he felt about torturing people, our orange-complexioned President said: “I have spoken with people at the highest level of intelligence and I asked them the question ‘Does it work?’ and the answer was ‘Yes, absolutely’.” With that simpering, self-satisfied smile of his, he was to add complacently: “I want to do everything within the bounds of what you’re allowed to do legally, but do I feel it works? Absolutely, I feel it works!

If Trump believes that torture actually “works”, he is mistaken. Torture only works if the suspect is guilty. If he possesses dangerous knowledge that he is concealing. But it doesn’t work if the suspect is innocent, as is mostly the case, and has nothing of importance to reveal. It’s well known that people will confess to anything under torture.  Just to get the torture to stop. Information extracted under these circumstances is worthless. Everyone knows that.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was waterboarded 183 times in a single month. Why so often?  If torture “works”, why didn’t Khalid “sing” after the first waterboarding? Or after the second? Why did they have to drown him (almost) 183 times in one  month?

That’s six times a day!

The reason they needed to torture Khalid six times a day for 30 consecutive days was clearly because torture wasn’t working! And yet we have the President telling us: “Absolutely, I feel it works!”

According to official reports, there are 73 types of “interrogation” and 200 different torture methods used in Israeli prisons, to which President Trump turns a blind eye. Or endorses. Abby Martin reveals in the shocking video posted below that Israel has a deliberate policy in regard to the Palestinians called “SHOOT TO CRIPPLE”.  IDF soldiers are instructed to aim directly at the penises and vaginas of their victims. More wheelchairs are consequently found in Occupied Palestine than anywhere else in the world.

All this President Trump knows, yet he does nothing to stop it, singing the praises of the Jewish state whenever he opens his mouth. (Click on link for 25-second video). 

One can’t help wondering how this serial groper of women would feel if he were waterboarded himself or had his testicles slowly mangled and crushed to a gooey pulp.

LET’S go over to Israel now and see how nice these people are.

You want to study cruelty? To write a doctoral study on sado-masochism under a democratic system? Well then, hop on a plane to Tel Aviv and you can start sharpening your pencils as soon as you get to Ben-Gurion Airport.

A few years ago, there was an article in Haaretz called “Parallel Lives”. It was a detailed study by Dalia Karpel of the psychology of Israeli torturers in Palestine. I can no longer access the article on my computer. For some reason,  all I get when I click on the link is this enigmatic sentence: “An error occurred while processing your request. Reference #30.6d52655f.1512602150.17d4c28a.” Yeah, sure.

Fortunately, I saved my notes.

The Dalia Karpel report is dated 4 October, 2007. Allow me to copy and paste some of the quotes from this scary article:

The study by Israeli doctoral student and clinical psychologist Nufar Yishai-Karin included interviews with 18 soldiers and three officers who served with her in two armored infantry units. She knew most of them from her military service. She interviewed each of them personally in his home for a few hours and recorded the interviews; she still has the tapes. Her prior acquaintance with the soldiers led them to trust her implicitly, and they opened up fully, readily telling her about crimes they themselves had committed: murder and killing, BREAKING THE BONES OF LITTLE CHILDREN, inflicting humiliation, destroying property, stealing…

The article describes the brutalization of some of the soldiers. Among the brutalized group was the impulsive type of soldier, who used the opportunity to let off steam, sometimes enthusiastically.

Testimony: “I went out on my first patrol. Others on the patrol were just shooting like crazies. I also started shooting like all the others. Look, I WON’T TELL YOU IT WASN’T COOL! … Suddenly you are responsible for what you are doing. You take the gun. You shoot. You do what you want.”

(‘Parallel Lives’ , Dalia Karpel, article in Haaretz.

One of the study’s most shocking findings is that the soldiers enjoyed the intoxication of power no less than the kick they got from the violence.

At one point or another of their service, the majority of the interviewees enjoyed violence,” Yishai-Karin observes in her thesis. “They enjoyed the violence because it broke the routine and they liked the destruction and the chaos. They also enjoyed the feeling of power and the sense of danger.”

Testimony of IDF soldier: “When there is chaos, I like it! That’s when I enjoy it! It’s like a drug. If I don’t go into Rafah, and if there isn’t some kind of riot once in some week, I GO NUTS!”

Another soldier: “The most important thing is that it removes the burden of the law from you. You ARE the law! You are the one who decides. The moment you leave the place that is called Eretz Yisrael and go through the Erez checkpoint into the Gaza Strip, YOU ARE THE LAW! YOU ARE GOD!”

(Dalia Karpel, Ibid.)

The callousness of some of the soldiers produced extreme indifference to the Arabs’ suffering. There were some tough soldiers who developed an ideology holding that even minor events necessitated a brutal response.

“With women I have no problem,” one soldier said. A woman threw a clog at me and I kicked her here [pointing to crotch area]. I broke everything there. She can’t have children. Next time she won’t throw clogs at me. When one of them [a woman] spat at me, I GAVE HER A RIFLE BUTT IN THE FACE. SHE DOESN’T HAVE WHAT TO SPIT WITH ANY MORE.”

Some junior commanders encouraged the brutality and even endorsed it:

“After two months in Rafah a new commanding officer arrived. So we do a first patrol with him. It’s 6am. Rafah is under curfew, there isn’t so much as a dog in the streets. Only a little boy of four playing in the sand. He is building a castle in his yard. He [the officer] suddenly starts running and we all run with him . . . He grabbed the boy. I am a degenerate if I am not telling you the truth: HE BROKE HIS HAND AT THE WRIST . . . BROKE HIS LEG . . . AND STARTED TO STOMP ON HIS STOMACH!

We are all there, jaws dropping, looking at him in shock.

The next day I go out with him on another patrol, and the soldiers are ALREADY STARTING TO DO THE SAME THING.”

(Dalia Karpel, Ibid.). 

The sad truth is that the level of cruelty practiced by these people — see picture — is nothing new. Israeli human rights abuses are fully supported by the American government and always have been. The Israelis, you will be pleased to hear, are no more wicked or cruel than their ancestors were. Psychologically, they at the same level of cruelty as they were in 1948 during the infamous Deir Yassin massacre, but technologically they are now in a position to inflict far more horrendous pains on a subjugated population, as they do in Gaza at regular intervals when they feel the need for orgasmic paroxysms and extracting pleasure from pain:
