Liberman: 'Be Like the British - Let Terrorists Hunger Strike'
Arutz Sheva ^ | 25/12/13 | Ari Yashar

Posted on 12/25/2013 7:05:27 AM PST by Eleutheria5

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman (Yisrael Beytenu) called for the recapture of Samer Issawi, the jailed terrorist who was released Monday after a 266 day hunger strike.

Just after his release, Liberman notes that Issawi called for the kidnapping of IDF soldiers, saying "the release of prisoners will only be achieved through kidnapping and prisoner exchange deals, nothing will be achieved without that."

.....

In 2002 Issawi was sentenced to 26 years in jail for terrorism, going free after a mere 10 years in the deal to free Gilad Shalit. After signing a promise not to return to terrorist activities, Issawi promptly broke those conditions and was rearrested in August 2012.

After 8 months of hunger striking, Issawi was admitted to an Israeli hospital, and offered an arrangement to stop his hunger strike and go home after 8 more months of imprisonment. Issawi agreed to the deal, and was subsequently freed this week to his Jerusalem home.

Liberman, in criticizing the release, referenced the 1981 hunger strike by Irish prisoners protesting the British decision removing their special status as political prisoners.

"More than 10 of the protesters died in the hunger strike, among them a striker that was elected at the time to the British Parliament by one of the voting regions in North Ireland," remarked the foreign minister. "Despite all that, the British government under Margaret Thatcher did not submit to the prisoners' demands. In the end the strike ended without the conditions of the striking prisoners being met."

"Every normal democratic country that aspires to defend itself, like the great democracy of Britain that I mentioned... would already yesterday have returned Issawi to his cell," ... "...Atkins said of the Irish hunger strike, 'if he persistently wishes to commit suicide, he is welcome to pursue his intent."

A 266 day hunger strike—did this guy weigh 400 pounds at the start? Or is a hunger strike now a restricted diet where he pushes back dessert? Or is it a rolling strike where a bunch of people symbolically skip a few meals?

They need to quit catering to them when they go on a “hunger strike”. Just give them food and water. They can eat it or not.

Nothing but liquid for 266 days...unlikely...

Unless they force feed him...which of course was left out of the article...

The secular state of Israel has lost its Jewish wisdom, including the understanding of the difference between good and evil and the importance of eliminating evil before it eliminates you.

He ended his strike 8 months ago.
The deal was, if he stops hunger striking, he gets out after 8 months. Why, oh why, can’t I find the Malcom in the Middle episode on You Tube where Francis and the military academy go on a hunger strike?

This is what happens when a hunger striker fasts too long.

They can use each other. That will help reduce the shortage.

It used to be that innocents would go on hunger strikes on the behalf of someone they felt was being mistreated. Can you imagine if a criminal tried this BS back in the day? He’d still be hearing the laughter as he passed on.
