JENIN, (PIC)– The family of detainee Iyad Istiteh, 32, from Jenin, expressed deep concern about his health after suffering from acute inflammation of the esophagus and other health problems while the Israeli prison administration neglected his treatment.

The detainee’s mother, Houriya Istiteh, said in a press statement on Monday that her son, since his detention, started to suffer from severe pain in different parts of his body, particularly in the esophagus, adding that his condition worsened as a result of the prison’s neglect.

Ragheb Abu Diak, head of the Palestinian prisoner society in Jenin, called on Doctors without Borders (MSF) to move immediately and demand treatment for Istiteh, and provide a specialist doctor for his condition. Istiteh served 8 years out of his sixteen-year sentence.

Is Resisting Genocide a Human Right?

Right to Resist

81 Notre Dame Law Review1275 (2006). Conducting an in-depth study of the genocide in Darfur, Sudan, and also discussing other genocides, this article details the inadequacy of many of the international community’s response to genocides, such as “targeted sanctions” or international peacekeeping forces. Examining international legal authorities such as the Genocide Convention, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Court of Justice, the article demonstrates that groups which are being subjected to genocide have a legal right of self-defense. International treaties, Security Council arms embargoes, or national gun control laws cannot lawfully be enforced in a manner which prevents self-defense resistance to a genocide in progress, because under international law, the prohibition against any form of complicity in genocide takes legal precedence over lesser laws.

Genocide in Photos

Since 1937 (Pre)Israel terrorism commits ongoing massacres in Palestine. Violent genocide, but the least known, silent genocide causing excess death by deliberate racist policies of deprivation. The same deprivation which according the Israeli narrative have cost 1/6 of Jewish Holocaust victims (1 of 6 million). The cost in human lives by avoidable mortality for the sake of the creation of Israel according to research (by Dr. Gideon Polya) in Palestine and neighboring countries is 24 million lives.
