Israel spurns rule of law principles. It does so with impunity. It gets away with gross human rights abuses. It freely commits murder. Palestinians bear the brunt of its lawlessness. Many hunger strike for justice in response.
Samer's been doing so for over 200 days. Ayman Sharawna intermittently stopped eating since August 1, 2012. In October 2011, he was released. In January 2012, he was rearrested.
Yousef Abdel Rahman Eshteiwi was mistreated the same way. Israel justified his rearrest and imprisonment. It did so based on secret evidence. His lawyer can't defend him. He's unaware of what it is. He can't contest.
Numerous other Palestinians are denied justice the same way. Israel wants them in gulag hell longterm.
On February 18, the International Middle East Media Center headlined "209 days on Hunger Strike; Letter from Palestinian Prisoner Samer al-Eesawi." It was written two days earlier. He's willing to die for justice. He said:
"There is no going back because I'm the owner of Right."
"I turn with admiration to the masses of our heroic Palestinian people, to our Palestinian leadership, to all forces, parties and national institutions. I salute them for standing by our fight to defend our right to freedom and dignity."- Advertisement -
"I draw my strength from my people, from all the free people in the world, from friends and the families of the prisoners who continue day and night chanting for freedom and an end to the occupation."
