On May 7, Israel's High Court ruled let 'em die. It rejected an urgent appeal to save them. They're uncharged political prisoners, not criminals. 

Virtually all Palestinian prisoners are behind bars for political reasons. They resist to live free on their own land. International law permits it. Israel calls it terrorism. 

Its High Court agrees. Justice hasn't a chance. Arab rights don't matter. Let 'em die.

The Court ruled hunger striking "cannot in itself form a factor in the decision regarding the validity of an administrative detention." 

"Administrative detention causes unease for any judge, but it is sometimes a necessity when the revealing of intelligence gathered against the petitioner would endanger the people who gave it or the ways of gathering it."
