The Israeli Medical Association has said that force-feeding is tantamount to torture.[1] United Nations human rights experts[2] have called it a violation of internationally-protected human rights. The United Nations Special Rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, Juan E.

Informed consent is an integral part in the realization of the right to health.”[3]             >>> vollständiger Text (pdf, en)

Am 9. April 1948 wurde das palästinensische Dorf Deir Yassin westlich von Jerusalem mit etwa 600 Einwohnern, alle Zivilisten,  von 132 Mitgliedern der zionistischen Terorgruppen Irgun und Stern angegriffen.

Der Schweizer IKRK-Delegierte Jacques de Reynier besichtigte die Ruinen von Deir Yassin zwei Tage nach dem Massaker, es schätzte, dass 350 Einwohner, Männer, Frauen und Kinder ermordet worden waren.
