ISRAEL'S TREATMENT OF PALESTINIAN PRISONERS

That this House condemns the imprisonment of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit by Hamas, but is appalled by the cruel and inhumane treatment suffered by the 7,000 Palestinians incarcerated in Israeli prisons, involving denial of medicines and basic healthcare, denial of education and reading materials, refusal of family visits, excessive fines, repeated night searches of cells and the long-term isolation of elected members of the Palestinian legislative council; believes that Israel's practice of holding Palestinians for unspecified periods of time without charge, including children, journalists and 21 Palestinian MPs is unacceptable; further believes that all this amounts to the collective punishment of Palestinian prisoners for the imprisonment of soldier Shalit; and calls on the Government to increase pressure on Israel to end its immoral and uncivilised treatment of prisoners.

Amendment 2225A1 - ISRAEL'S TREATMENT OF PALESTINIAN PRISONERS

leave out from `House' to end and insert `notes that there are 7,000 Palestinian detainees under the supervision of the Israel Prison Service (IPS); further notes that whilst allegations of torture in Israeli prisons have been made in the past, the International Red Cross has never condemned Israel for torturous treatment; further notes that Israel has invested significantly into its prison service, last year alone investing 30 million New Israeli Shekels for renovating prisons; further notes that Palestinian detainees in Israeli prisons have equal access to education to Israeli inmates and that hundreds of Palestinian detainees acquire higher education through Open University, while others complete their matriculation certificates, more than 10,000 of which have been achieved since 2000 by detainees in the occupation prisons, and that last summer 3,300 prisoners took the formal Palestinian Authority exams; and further notes that a medical clinic is staffed with a physician and a medic at every detention facility, medical examination is conducted daily and the IPS operate a specialist detention facility for prisoners with physical and mental problems, where prisoners with chronic illnesses are cared for.'.
