Hundreds of Palestinian have died inside Israeli prisons and now an Israeli television channel has aired shocking footage of Israel's so-called Control and Restraint unit, or Masada, attacking Palestinian prisoners.
Activists have demanded people in charge of the operation, carried out in 2007, be charged and the family of one of the victims told Al Jazeera that they would consider suing Masada.

When will this madness end?
You can't defend those you love with hate, you just guarantee your own downfall.
All that is questionable is when, not if.
What irks me is that out here in the western nations, we only ever see negative stuff like this.
I have only ever seen stuff about israel and the people that didn't involve the conflict once or twice and I am sick of the propaganda.
I would like to know what things are like for people there in their everyday lives.
One doco I saw a while ago, probably a decade ago, was about a group of palestinians on a bus tour of israel that is free to them courtesy of the government.
The bus driver and the other staff were israelis and the passengers palestinians.
It was good to see how well they could get along doing something so simple together.
Ok, I found it.
I would suggest that anyone interested in the middle east have a look. It's quite good.
I found a trailer for it on youtube, with italian subtitles and it even has someone playing the Oud, my favourtie arabic instrument. It is what we in the west called a lute.
Sorry for going offtopic Kt.
