On February 4, Palestinian prisoner affairs minister Issa Qaraqe said hundreds of Ofer Prison detainees launched supportive disobedience actions in protest. They returned food, refused outdoor breaks, and abstained from medical treatment. Others refused to eat altogether. As a result, Israel put eight detainees in punitive isolation.

Millions of Palestinians now know, respect and support Adnan. They also condemn Israel's shocking mistreatment and willingness to let an innocent man suffer and die.

If so, he'll be martyred for heroically resisting injustice. He'll also inspire others to emulate his spirit until Palestine's liberated and free. Nothing less is tolerable now or ever.

A Final Comment

Adnan's heroism contrasts with longtime Yemeni despot Ali Abdullah Saleh. For decades, he enforced tyranny on Yemen's people. Post-9/11, he partnered in America's war on terror and worst crimes, including drone strikes killing Yemeni civilians.

America trained his security forces in techniques of repression and brutality. Last February, Yeminis rebelled. At issue, is repression, unemployment, poverty, massive government corruption, and unmet human needs. A year later, nothing changed.

Demonstrations continue daily. In response, security forces brutalize and murder protesters. They want Saleh out, prosecuted, imprisoned, and a government of their own choosing replacing him and his corrupt cronies.

Last June, his presidential compound was bombed. Severely injured, he received medical treatment and convalescent time in Saudi Arabia for months before returning. Rage accompanied his arrival.
