A week ago, I posted “6 broken bones” as an allegory to the deceitful pathos of the Palestinian political brass, where even though the autopsy has revealed two broken ribs, they claimed he had 6 broken bones.
Lo and behold, all of a sudden Jaradat wasn’t tortured to death by Israeli internal security (Shin Bet), but he was killed by the next worse thing in their minds: “collaborators.”
The Palestinian Authority claimed Saturday that Arafat Jaradat, the 30-year-old Palestinian who died in Megiddo Prison last week, was killed by Palestinian “collaborators.”
The PA Prisoners Affairs Ministry said that Jaradat died two days after being transferred to a cell where “collaborators” were being held.
“Because he did not confess to throwing stones, Jaradat was moved to the collaborators’ cell in prison, where he was physically liquidated two days later,” the ministry said.
In a statement, the ministry claimed that Israel often uses “collaborators” in its prisons to elicit confessions out of security prisoners.
…this is the first time the PA has claimed that Palestinians killed Jaradat.
And not that any of Israel’s detractors care, but the autopsy came back negative for poison and physical violence.
There was no evidence of poisoning or physical violence against Arafat Jaradat, the Palestinian prisoner who was found dead in his Megiddo Prison cell last week, according to an intermediate autopsy report released by the Health Ministry on Thursday.
According to the report, the fractures in the ribs and hemorrhages on the skin were typical of the condition of people who undergo intensive resuscitation in an attempt to save their lives. The resuscitation was performed for 50 minutes by prison physicians and Magen David Adom paramedics.
And one last thing. You know how Jaradat was hailed as a father of two, innocent gas station clerk? Well, turns out he’s a member of Fatah’s Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades:
Al Aqsa brigades, the armed wing of the Fatah national liberation movement, mourns with all pride its hero, the martyr of freedom, the prisoner Arafat Jaradat,” the statement said, in reference to Jaradat’s membership of the group.
