Khader Adnan: Freed for How Long?


No guarantee Israel won't again arrest him on spurious charges based on secret (nonexistent) evidence.

On April 17, Palestinian Prisoners Day, Khader gained freedom. At issue is for how long? As announced, Israel released him as scheduled. He endured 66 hunger striking days to be free.

So was Hana Shalabi last October when released with other Palestinian prisoners in exchange for Gilad Shalit. Held two and a half years without charge, she wasn't free long.

On February 16, she was again arrested and detained uncharged. After 44 hunger striking days, she was lawlessly exiled to Gaza where she's recuperating from her ordeal. Weeks after he resumed eating, Khader also perhaps still struggles to regain full health.

On April 18, Maan News quoted him saying:

"The happiness I saw on my peoples' faces made me forget all the suffering I experienced when I was on hunger strike."

On arrival in Jenin, he went to an Arraba village sit-in tent to meet Jaafar Izz Addin's parents. Imprisoned, he's now hunger striking for justice. So are hundreds of other other Palestinian prisoners. 

On April 17, they began an open-ended strike against abusive prison conditions and practices. Children young as 10 are affected. So are women.
