Samer Easawi: Hunger Striking for Justice
Israel holds him unjustly. It doesn't care if he lives or dies.
by Stephen Lendman
Samer's a Palestinian activist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine member. On April 15, 2002, Israel kidnapped him in Ramallah. It did so during multiple community incursions.
Samer was wrongly charged with allegedly planning attacks on Israel. When evidence doesn't exist, Israel invents it.
He was sentenced to 30 years for supporting right over wrong. He's one of thousands of Palestinian political prisoners. They symbolize longstanding Israeli ruthlessness.
It's official policy. Media scoundrels suppress it. They shame themselves in the process.
In October 2011, Samer was one of hundreds of Palestinians released in exchange for Gilat Shalit. On July 7, 2012, he was rearrested. He was abducted near Hizma village. It's part of Jerusalem's municipality.
