SNIP: These women either need sperm to cover up the fact that they are getting knocked up by someone other than their
masters husbands, or there is a shortage of kids to hand over to the Taliban.
Sperm smuggling alleged at terror prison
Nablus, West Bank (CNN) – Dalal al-Ziben holds her son and kisses his head. Al-Ziben never thought she would have another baby considering her husband has been inside an Israeli prison for 16 years and will likely never get out.
“When they arrested my husband I was 18 years old,” she says.
As is expected from her in conservative Palestinian society she says she has been faithful to her husband. She has simply been waiting, hoping her husband may one day be released from incarceration.
It hasn’t happened and likely never will because he is serving 27 life sentences and an additional 25 years for helping plan a deadly bombing in a Jerusalem market. An act of violence she says he has admitted to.
Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails are not allowed conjugal visits, but some Israeli prisoners are. The man convicted of assassinating Israel’s Prime Minister Yitzah Rabin was allowed conjugal visits.
Al-Ziben says she got pregnant by her husband because he managed to have his sperm smuggled out of a high security prison.
“Why does the wife of a prisoner have to suffer and stay like this without children and a family? It is our right to meet our husbands and our right to have children,” Al-Ziben says.
