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.
