    In common with the people of Pakistan, Americans have a rich history of peaceful protest when their government strays from its proper purpose. We remember the civil rights movement, the Vietnam War demonstrations and the millions who turn out on the Mall in Washington for any important issue. Today, I am writing about another peaceful protest — that of a fellow Pakistani citizen who has had his rights stripped from him, Guantanamo Bay detainee Ahmed Rabbani. Ahmed’s family originally come from the persecuted Burmese Rohingya; he is a rather humble taxi driver from Karachi, Pakistan. In 2002, he was sold...

    Fatah leader and archterrorist Marwan Barghouti, who led a mass hunger strike of terrorist prisoners which ended this week, on Tuesday threatened to renew the hunger strike if the Israel Prison Service (IPS) fails to keep the promises it made to the terrorists. "The strike brought the issue of the prisoners back to the forefront of politics on the international level," Barghouti said in a statement quoted by Channel 10 News. "A committee made up of senior IPS officials and representatives of the prisoners was set up and it will convene in the coming days.” "We delayed the strike in...

    Archterrorist Marwan Barghouti met with his lawyer for the first time since he recently initiated a hunger strike. Barghouti was later caught on camera breaking the hunger strike.

  • CAUGHT IN THE ACT: Watch Marwan Barghouti Eating During Hunger Strike

    Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j4WUAWwLUVY Poor convicted terrorist Marwan Barghouti. He just can’t catch a break. Barghouti keeps convincing his fellow terrorists to go on hunger strikes for him, while he tells them he will be doing the same for their shared cause. In this case the cause is more cable TV channels, extra family visit time, and the right to earn advanced Israeli university degrees In reality, when Barghouti thinks no one is watching, he’s busy noshing. After Barghouti instigated this latest hunger strike he was placed in solitary confinement, and unbeknownst to him, the IPS (Israel Prison Services) placed hidden cameras...
  • Yale's College Republicans hold BBQ near a hunger strike to increase protesters' anguish

    Most union-busting techniques are explicit, like legal challenges and anti-union campaigning. But when all else fails, go for the gut. Yale University's local College Republicans chapter held a barbecue on Friday near the fasting site of campus union organizers participating in a hunger strike directed against the university. Bragging about the wafting, delicious smells on Facebook, it appears to have been a move to torment the fasting grad students, who have thus far gone days without food in a protest for their worker's rights struggle. "It'll taste (and smell) delicious!" the event description said on Facebook. The tactic drew comparisons...

    img src="http://www.jewishpress.com/wp-content/uploads/BBQ-outside-Ofer-Prison-696x696.jpeg"> Starting at 12 PM today, Thursday, April 20, 2017, “Young National Union” (Ichud Leumi) activists are hosting a FREE BBQ outside the Ofer Prison, on Road 443 just outside of Jerusalem. Grilling the food just outside the prison walls, the delicious smell wafts through the prison… and their intention is to taunt the convicted PA terrorists who are hunger-striking to receive 5-star accommodations and privileges. PA terrorists imprisoned in Israeli jails started a “hunger strike” in protest to Israel’s decision to reduce security prisoner privileges — such as no longer being able to receive FREE (paid for by...

    Army Private Chelsea Manning, the convicted source of the biggest intelligence leak in U.S. military history, began a hunger strike Friday over what she described as “constant and overzealous administrative scrutiny by prison and military officials.” Manning, 28, who is serving time in a federal prison in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, said in a statement released by her supporters that she will consume only water and prescription medicines starting Friday morning, and will forgo voluntarily cutting her hair. The incarcerated soldier said her protest is aimed at prompting officials to recognize her need for treatment, especially with respect to gender dysphoria,...

    Terrorist Bilal Kayed, who was in administrative detention and is hospitalized at the Barzilai Hospital after hunger striking, has reached an agreement with Israeli authorities according to which he will be released from administrative detention and will stop his 70-day hunger strike. Kayed's lawyers reached an agreement with the state that his administrative detention will not be renewed after six months unless new information emerges which supports his staying in jail. The agreement will be brought before the High Court on Thursday as part of the petition presented by the terrorist against his administrative detention. Kayed, 35, a resident of...

    <p>The Russian dissident Vladimir Bukovsky has been on hunger strike at his home in Cambridge for more than a week in protest at what he calls the “Kafkaesque” British judicial system.</p> <p>Bukovsky was charged last year with child pornography offences. He strenuously denies the allegations. In August he took the unusual step of suing the Crown Prosecution Service for libel: he is seeking £100,000 in damages and claims the CPS has “falsely and maliciously” hurt his reputation.</p>

    A hunger-striking Palestinian security prisoner is to remain in Israeli jail despite warnings over his deteriorating health, the country's top court ruled Wednesday. The Supreme Court said it would not release Mohammed al-Qiq immediately but would follow his health on a daily basis. Qiq has been on hunger strike for 63 days over his detention under Israel's administrative detention law and his organs are at risk of failure any day, his legal team claims. The European Union on Wednesday said it was "especially concerned" about his deteriorating health. His lawyer Jawad Boulus asked the Supreme Court to release him but...

    Israeli authorities said late Wednesday they had freed Mohammed Allan, a Palestinian Arab terrorist who held a two-month hunger strike in an attempt to pressure Israel to free him. "Mohammed Allan has just been released," Sivan Weizman, a spokeswoman for Israel Prisons Service, said in a message quoted by AFP. Allan's father Nasser al-Din Allan told AFP earlier that he would take his son for a hospital checkup on Thursday. Allan was arrested in November 2014 and held under a measure known as administrative detention. He first began his high-profile 65-day hunger strike in June in protest of his administrative...

    Israel last August 26 ended Operation Protective Edge by sealing a ceasefire agreement with a confederation of terrorist organizations in Gaza, foremost among them Hamas and Islamic Jihad, but that deal now appears to be on the brink of collapse. Khaled Al-Batash, a senior leader of the Islamic Jihad terrorist group, announced his organization may soon breach the agreement, in statements made during a speech to Islamic Jihad members at an event showing support for Khader Adnan, a jailed Islamic Jihad leader hunger-striking in an Israeli prison. Al-Batash said that if Adnan dies as a result of his hunger-strike, the...

"Khader Adnan may suddenly die at any moment, doctors have confirmed to me," Jawad Boulos, legal counsel for the Ramallah-based Prisoners Club of the Palestinian Authority (PA) told AFP. He said he received a call in the middle of the night saying "that the doctors at the Israeli hospital, where Khadar Adnan is currently held, were on alert due to the deterioration of his condition."

    Loretta Lynch is still waiting to be confirmed as attorney general, and her allies are hoping a hunger strike will do the trick. The advocacy group founded by the Rev. Al Sharpton, along with female civil-rights leaders, are launching the hunger strike – where groups of fasters will alternate days abstaining from food until Lynch is confirmed to replace Eric Holder at the Justice Department. Dubbed “Confirm Loretta Lynch Fast,” the new tactic is designed in the mold of civil rights leaders such as Martin Luther King Jr., Mahatma Gandhi and Cesar Chavez, organizers said.

About 20 leaders from the southern Wome village are camping outside parliament since launching the strike.

    A federal judge has lifted a temporary restraining order that had stopped the U.S. military from force feeding a hunger-striking prisoner at Guantanamo Bay naval base, saying the man’s life hangs in the balance. Late Thursday night, U.S. District Judge Gladys Kessler said the military must be allowed to carry out force feeding in the case of Abu Wa’el Dhiab because of the “very real probability that Mr. Dhiab will die.” …
