'Worse than the Nazis'?

Iran's FARS News reports that 'Palestinian' Minister for Captive Affairs Ataollah Abu Sabah complains that Israel's prisons are 'worse than the Nazis.'
Speaking told FNA, Sabah said that almost 4,400 Palestinian prisoners are incarcerated in Israeli jails, and added that those prisoners who are sentenced to long terms of imprisonment are kept in central prisons whose conditions are gravely inhume and terrible.

"These prisons lack sanitation and are overcrowded," he said, and added that Israel is using the harshest methods of suppression against Palestinian prisoners in these jails.

He added that conditions in Ketziot Prison, where many Palestinian political prisoners are held, are even harsher than the conditions tolerated by prisoners in the Nazi Germany.

Sabah added that prisoners in Ketziot are not safe from night torture.
Look at the pictures above and decide for yourselves whose prisons can best be described as 'worse than the Nazis.'

Israel Prison Service (IPS) Spokesman Ian Dominitz:
The conditions of the prisoners are governed by law and the regulations of IPS,” said Dominitz. “They have rights and privileges,” he added. Of the 270 inmates studying for degrees at Open University, a program that enables continuing education, at the end of 2010, the vast majority were Palestinians and Israeli Arabs serving time for links to terrorism. The most popular courses are Introduction to the History of the Middle East in Modern Times; Genocide; Basic Concepts in International Relations; Israeli Arab Society; and Islam: Introduction to the History of the Religion, according to Israel’s Prison Service. An item in the Palestinian daily Al-Hayyat Al-Jadida (Oct. 9, 2010) spoke of Palestinian prisoners gaining masters degrees and doctorates while in Israeli jails.

Gilad did not get a masters in any of these, or had the opportunity to study.
