The silent human rights abusers

The only reason I am posting this article is the lack of reporting on the horrendous human rights track record the Palestinian Authority has, and because there is little publicity or airing of that record in the international forum, I think this rates at least a mention. Ynet News.
A Palestinian prisoner says he jumped from a second floor window to escape torture at the hands of his Palestinian jailers. Prison officials say he fell. The prisoner is 34-year-old Mohammed Abdel Karim. He's being treated in an east Jerusalem hospital for back injuries from his plunge.

I suspect most Palestinians, if given a choice between a stint in an Israeli jail or a Palestinian one - would choose the Jews. This maybe why NGO’s who are so concerned with human rights abuses have so little time for the abuses committed by the Palestinian Authority on a literally captive Palestinian population.

This is, like, totally internal affair of the sovereign... wait, they are not exactly a sovereign at the moment.

Confusing, really.
