A Palestinian prisoner who refused food for eight months ended his hunger strike on Tuesday after reaching a deal with Israeli for early release, his lawyer and the military said.

Samer Issawi began refusing food in August to protest his re-arrest last July. The 33-year-old Issawi became a symbol of the Palestinian struggle against Israel, and some demonstrations over his case turned violent.

Attorney Jawad Bulous said Israeli military prosecutors agreed to release Issawi after he serves another eight months. …

Issawi was sentenced in 2002 to 26 years in prison for his role in a series of shooting attacks targeting police cars and students at Jerusalem’s Hebrew University. He was released as part of a 2011 deal that freed hundreds of Palestinians—many of them militants involved in deadly attacks—in exchange for an Israeli soldier held in Gaza for five years. …

Then cook a nice juicy turkey with gravy, taters, and dressing right next to the idiot. Then dribble and drool while you eat it right outside the jerk's cell. Slobber all over. Then, while holding out a drumstick dripping with gravy, ask the bozo if he'd like a taste, or maybe he'd like some taters and gravy . . . when he kinda' looks like he's going to give in, pull it away and start laughing . . . all the while with food spitting out of your mouth.

So let the muzzie palestinian starve to death. Why does Israel negotiate with some idiot who wants to starve himself to death. You never hear of any starvation diets in any of the 57 muzzzlim countries or socialist communist counties like Red China, North Korea or Cuba. That’s cause they wouldn’t give a sh_t if any of their prisoners starved themselves. But only in the West (or Israel) do we allow ourselves to so-called intimidated by some criminal or terrorist idiot starving himself and then cave into his demands. Unbelieveable!

Bacon ain’t a bad diet food, it is really yummy

If you squeeze some of the grease outta it is quite good, ham is prolly better.
