Palestinian Hunger Strikers for Justice
Courageous Palestinians risk death for justice.
by Stephen Lendman
Hana Shalabi's ordeal highlights what many others endured previously and dozens do now. Only they know the physical and emotional toll.
Who else understands the willingness to die for justice? Who'll suffer and risk it? Who'll challenge an implacable foe unconcerned if they live or die?
Hana, Khader Adnan, and many others risk everything to live free. They confront injustice courageously for it. They're willing to die without it. What greater sacrifice than that! What better reason to lend support and honor them.
Thousands of Hanas and Khaders rot in Israeli gulags. Recovering from his ordeal, Israel promised to free Khader on April 17, Palestinian Prisoners Day. More on it below.
Free or in prison, tormenting Khader won't end. Nor will Hana's ordeal or other Palestinians persecuted by Israel's racist oppression.
