Media Turn Hunger Striking Terrorist Spokesman into Victim

Islamic Jihad spokesman Khader Adnan said Tuesday he is ending his 66-day hunger strike after worldwide sympathy pressured the Justice Ministry to decide to end his administrative detention two months from now.

Mainstream media have turned the terrorist leader into a victim and hero as he continued his hunger strike while under care in an Israeli hospital. The Islamic Jihad has been outlawed by the United States as a terror group.

Eleven people were hurt Tuesday in a protest outside his prison cell near Jerusalem while he lay in his bed in Ziv Hospital, in Tzfat in northern Israel.

Israeli security forces arrested Khader Adnan, a resident of Jenin, in December, for terrorist activities. He had appealed to the High Court to be freed but withdrew the petition after the Justice Ministry said it would not extend his administration detention.

Hamas had warned it will “use all legitimate means for freeing prisoners” and asked Egypt to intervene on Adnan’s behalf.

Adnan’s wife, her face completely covered by a veil except for her eyes, has been interviewed and photographed by media, who recorded her as saying that doctors told her husband he could suffer a heart attack at any time.

Now all we need are some countries to ratchet up international pressure to extend his detention indefinitely.

Or better yet, tell him he's free to go and and give him a cans of peanuts to break the fast on, but with springy snakes inside.

Israel set to release Islamic Jihad terrorist from administrative detention in mid-April unless significant new evidence produced”

SNIPPET: “Adnan, who owns a bakery and produce store in the West Bank village of Arabeh, near Jenin, served as Islamic Jihad’s spokesperson. He was arrested by the IDF on December 17 for his alleged involvement in activities that threatenIsrael’s security. He began his hunger strike the following day.

Adnan was previously convicted of belonging to a terrorist organization. He went on another hunger strike after being detained by Palestinian security forces in the West Bank.

Israeli security officials consider him to be one of the senior-most Islamic Jihad operatives in the northern West Bank. He is suspected of taking part in various terror-related activities, including allocating funds for terrorist purposes and maintaining contacts with Islamic Jihad operatives in Syria and the West Bank.”
