Hasan Ayoub on Palestinian Children Incarcerated in Israeli Jails – A Personal Account

May 18, 2020

Palestinian Youth, incarcerated in Israeli Prisons –

Hasan Ayoub, Assistant Professor of Political Science, An-Najah University, Nablus, Palestine and Visiting Scholar at the University of Denver’s Korbel School of International Studies, is interviewed by Dr. Rob Prince about his and his family’s experiences of being arrested as children by the Israeli military. Like the 500-700 Palestinian children arrested and detained every year, they suffered torture, physical and psychological abuse and humiliation while in custody – whether in Israeli prisons or police stations in nearby settlements. Dr. Ayoub tells his own experiences in this unjust system.

    Sounds to me that the Israeli’s are busy re-enacting a passion play from the Marqis de Sade. Hopefully interviews like this will shine a light on the criminality of Zionism.

    Why is it so difficult for those in power to share that power and treat all people humanely?
