And now my standard signature statement of self deprecation ... Here it goes...Then again what does a simple Gaucho of very little brain like me know... To at least attempt to cure part of my limiting condition I went on and visited many Sites in INTERNET, and voila! Israel's GSS specifically is listed there as example for Israel being one out some 25 countries where torture is an institution as well.
PS: The only solution is for the people once and for all utterly plowing under the corrupt entente passing as a government system and FREELY elect new institutions and worthy Jews to lead us.
- From Jack, attorney:
If they have a case, why are they trying it in the media?
The Shabak is in the Prime Minister's Office. Their actions are the responsibility of the PM. Write to him and hold him to account for torture being institutional in Israel.

UPDATE: PROTEST Of ALLEGED TORTURE OF DUMA SUSPECTS
The Shabak interrogations of the Duma suspects are over. A few suspects have confessed to various crimes after weeks of alleged non stop torture. They will now be brought to trial for serious charges including murder, facing life in prison. But the struggle for clarification of what happened in the Shabak interrogation chambers is only beginning.
The Shabak and the Courts have just issued an official decision prohibiting the publication of the details of the interrogation and torture methods they implemented during the investigation.

Terrorist's relative: 'Why can't Israel find him?'
Nashat murdered two people in a Tel Aviv pub, and an hour later he apparently murdered a taxi driver as well. Massive police forces have been scouring for him, but have yet to locate the elusive gunman.
"I'm surprised that the state of Israel, with its great power, is unable to locate a little criminal," the attorney said in an interview on radio Kol Rega.
"If it can't catch him, then who will catch him? Me? His father?," he posed, a day after Nashat's father Mohammed was arrested on suspicions that the family helped him escape and hide.
Sami Melhem said, "I'm doubtful that someone in the family knew about this incident," even though Mohammed was revealed on Tuesday to have spoken with Nashat just after the attack.
"I also have no doubt about the fact that there is condemnation of the act, condemnation that was already said after the attack. There is no reason to cooperate with a man like this, who did what he did."
Despite the attempt to downplay the terrorist as a "little criminal," Melhem has shown himself to be crafty, having intentionally thrown away his phone before carrying out the attack with an automatic assault rifle so as to make it harder to track him.
In the past, Sami Melhem represented his terrorist family member in court, after he was convicted in July 2007 of attacking a soldier with a screwdriver and attempting to steal a his gun at Karkur Junction to the east of Hadera.
