Were Leonard Cohen's songs used to torture Palestinian prisoners?

Were Leonard Cohen's songs used to torture Palestinian prisoners?

This month marks the 1 year anniversary of the 
passing of Canadian singer, musician and poet, Leonard Cohen. Wth our guest, BDS and Palestine-solidarity activist, Dror, we looked back at Cohen's legacy when it comes to Palestine-Israel especially concerning the controversy that surrounded his 2009 concert in Israel. We also talked about the surprising revelation of a new article published by the Israeli online newspaper, Walla, concerning the possible usage of Cohen's songs by the occupation prison authorities to torture Palestinian prisoners.

This interview was conducted by Sawssan Kaddoura for Under the Olive Tree
