Guantánamo fuels hatred of West: OSCE report

The US must close the notorious Guantanamo prison, where its treatment of prisoners fans hatred of the West and recruits more people to join Al-Qaeda, Europe’s main human rights representative concluded in a new report made public on Friday, July 1.

“The longer the detention is in the camps the more the hatred against the US and the West becomes anchored in hearts and minds,” said Belgian Senate President Anne-Marie Lizin.

The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), which commissioned the report from its human rights representative, will vote next week whether to accept its findings, Reuters reported.
