Hunger Striking for Justice
Many have done it against Israel.
by Stephen Lendman
Behind bars, prisoners have few ways to resist injustice. Refusing food's a common tactic. Khader Adnan's the latest detainee to attract attention. His heroism made it worldwide.
After 66 days, he began eating after a deal was agreed to release him in April. It's not without strings, may unravel, or find him again unjustly detained.
Israel's a rogue terror state. It can't be trusted. Its word lacks credibility. It spurns rule of law principles. It imprisons innocent victims like Khader and many others unjustly. If freed, Adnan risks re-arrest. He was wrongfully detained nine times. Is number 10 next?
Monitoring his health, Physicians for Human Rights-Israel (PHR-I) said he's "expected to go through a complex recovery process and will have to undergo a variety of medical procedures, some of them risky."
PHR-I's committed to help him struggle to live. His condition remains precarious. He's now slowly eating three meals daily in small amount portions.
