Woman filmed by soldiers describes torture, humiliation

Dababisa said she would not be relieved “until the soldiers are punished in court as an example to anyone who would dare to humiliate or insult any Palestinian prisoner.” (Maan Images)

HEBRON  — The Palestinian woman who was filmed, handcuffed and blindfolded as an Israeli soldier danced around her said Thursday that the video only showed the beginning of “a journey of torture and humiliation.” 

A video of 24-year-old Ihsan Dababisa surfaced on YouTube on Monday, and was aired on Israel’s Channel 10 News. Dababisa spoke to Ma’an’s correspondent in her home in Nuba village, west of Hebron, and described the ordeal which followed her detention.

Dababisa said she was detained at Etzion checkpoint at 8 a.m. on 11 December 2007, and thrown into a military jeep, handcuffed and blindfolded. She was taken to the yard of Etzion detention center in front of a group of soldiers.

Moments later, she said, she heard loud music and one of the soldiers tried to touch her. She tried to stay close to the wall, and another soldier arrived with a bottle of wine, and offered her a drink. When she refused, but he continued to harass her, she said.

The soldiers then attacked her “like vicious dogs.” 

“They began beating me with rifle butts and legs. One of the soldiers hit my head against the metal of the military jeep until I fainted. Then I found myself in front of a female doctor wearing military uniform. After examining me they moved me to the interrogation center where my journey of torture and humiliation started.

“The officer’s name who began to interrogate me was Beran. He threatened to demolish my family home and arrest my siblings, the interrogation lasted for two hours. After that I was transferred with my eyes blindfolded to another interrogation center, I think it was the Russian compound, where there were three interrogators.

“Soon after I came in they began insulting and cursing using words I do not want to say. One of the interrogators was pulling me from my hair. I was handcuffed the whole time. The interrogation lasted until 11 at night, then they transferred me to Hasharon prison where they accused me of trying to stab someone, and of affiliation with the Islamic Jihad. Lawyers from the prisoners’ society defended me and I was sentenced to 22 months in prison. I was released on 6 September 2009.”

More than a year after she was released, Dababisa saw herself on the news. “They were talking about me, I could not believe what I was seeing with my eyes. I was about to faint, I began to cry, I could not sleep all night for one moment. All of the memories while I was among a group of criminal sadist corrupted soldiers who were without feelings and humanity came to my head.”

Dababisa said she would not be relieved “until the soldiers are punished in court as an example to anyone who would dare to humiliate or insult any Palestinian prisoner.”

    Just another day in the best hell hole (er-democracy) in the middle east.

    From the worlds most sadistic (er-bravest) military.

    Your American tax dollars at work and I bet some of you are actually proud.

    Do the terms sick, twisted freak hold any meaning to you?
    Beyond morally depraved and sadistic?
    Just wondering?

    The Christian Zionist
    I now fully understand the words of the bible –
    These people do not know their right hand from their left.

    Tragically – I really don’t think they want to.

    There will literally be hell to pay
    There really is zero other option

    One of the many detestible things about the zionist military is their profound cowardice. They use children as human shields, they deploy American battle field weapons in refugee camps and they assassinate lone individuals as a mob.

    These deviants and degenerate zionists actually send funeral wreaths to the family of individuals they are about to murder to notify their family of the imminent deaths.

    There is the pathological targeting of children by zionists, both military and civilian, that defies the ethics of any culture on this planet save for the zionist’s. They are actually at war with potential of the child in the interests of yet to be born zionists.

    These zionists defile humanity and it would be a crime by world if we collectively do not stop these soulless creatures from harming another human being.

    Soulless Luciferian Scum. Yet we have to give out unconditional love. If we as humanity are to reach a higher goal to survive.We cannot carry on with our old world thinking such as who owns such territory etc. As Humans we must live toward a higher level of sharing. The world and its land does not belong to us.We are born into the world alone, and we leave it alone.Its only those Luciferian possessed peoples who think they rule this world.Its time to become more tolerant of those with different beliefs and to tolerate and respect them.

    The Israeli’s are not to blame. The US Terror machine that funds and gives the Israeli the means to do this are the real culprits in all this. The US is a country of great terror and propaganda. Why dont lift the lid on what their tax dollars are paying for in Israeli and the Occupied Terror-tories. Too long the American people will act as though they are like lambs while they elect the Israeli lobby approved leaders for the US Presidential race. Americans of all persuasions should view this kind of information about humiliation and torture, cos when the chickens come home to roost they cannot glibly state that they dont know why the people doing this to them hate them. The real stupidity of Americans show through when they see what they send to Israel, of what their hands have produced put into the hands of sadists and butchers to dispossess another people for what their own ancestors may have done against the Jews. Since the Roman army made up of all european people dispossed the Jews of what they view now as their birthright. This is collective guilt on the part of western nations, that they allow this to happen and actually seek to encourage it by allowing weapons to Israel. Americans should stand up and refuse to allow this to continue cos they are constantly being lied to about foreign policy towards the Palestinian people. End the Occupation of Palestine and get the settlers out of Palestine. They have no legitimate right to be there as acknowledged by the west and UN.
