Palestinian prisoner dies after torture in Israeli jail.

Palestinian protester Yasser Jaradat died yesterday in an Israeli jail, probably killed by his captors, according to Aljazeera TV news from Doha. Israel says he died of a heart attack but the Palestinian Authority says there is no evidence of this, instead he died after torture.

Shades of Prsoner X, Ben Zygier, though he suicided. Jaradat’s death is likely to cause an uprising. Providing it is peaceful I would support that, though I wonder if it will have any effect at all on Israeli policies and practice, let alone on American or world opinion.
