The right of every person not to be subjected to ill-treatment or torture (physical or psychological) is one of the few human rights that are considered absolute. As an absolute right, it may never be "balanced out" against other rights and values, nor suspended or limited, even in difficult circumstances such as war or fighting terrorism. This right now holds the highest and most binding status in international law. Nevertheless, until the late 1990s, the Israel Security Agency (ISA, formerly the General Security Service) routinely used methods that constituted ill-treatment and even torture in interrogating Palestinian residents of the Occupied Territories, relying on the recommendations of a state commission headed by retired Supreme Court Justice Moshe Landau. The Commission had held that, in order to prevent terrorism, ISA agents were permitted to use "psychological pressure" and a "moderate degree of physical pressure". This permission was grounded, in the Commission's opinion, in the "necessity defense" in the Penal Law.
