Palestinian Khader Adnan; 65th day hunger strike.

Khader Adnan has not eaten since mid-December when he was arrested by Israeli forces at his West Bank home

Doctors say that after 64 days without food the prisoner is at immediate risk of death.

Israel says he is a security threat. Its high court of justice has scheduled a petitions hearing regarding the case for Thursday.

 

The group Phsyicians for Human Rights said after visiting him in hospital in Israel that he had lost a third of his body weight and was shackled to his bed.

The 33-year-old baker is being held under what Israeli law calls administrative detention, meaning he can be held without trial or charges indefinitely if he is deemed to be a security threat.

He has been told he will be held for four months, although that could be extended.

 

Earlier this week thousands of Palestinians rallied in Gaza and the West Bank in support of Mr Adnan, who is widely believed to be a member of the militant group Islamic Jihad. (Though he has not been charged in any of the 8 times he has been accused of this)

 

The European Union's foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton, said she was following Mr Adnan's case with great concern.

She said prisoners had the right to be informed of any charges and to be subject to a fair trial.

Being held without charges for years and years is a trait of a democratic country right?

Some more info, according to reports:

Before entering his house, soldiers used the driver that takes Khader’s father to the vegetable market, Mohammad Mustafa, as a human shield by forcing him to knock on the door of the house and call out Khader’s name while blindfolded. A huge force of soldiers then entered the house shouting. Recognizing Khader immediately, they grabbed him violently in front of his two young daughters and ailing mother.

 

Adnan also claims that he was beaten, the guards made sexual references about wife and mother, insulted Islam and held him in solitary confinement for giving wrong answers in "interrogation that lasts for hours"

Why am I not surprised that the usual Israeli apologist aren't responding to this thread? You can ignore this man all you want, but the world will recognize this heroic act against an apartheid state.

Or blinded by his faith. Which'd make him no better than the strict Orthodox Jews in the country causing much of this #### in the first place.

What faith? He is a Muslim but he is protesting against Administrative detention, one without charge for months and years on in. Surely if you get arrested and put in prison for years and years with things like getting beaten and humiliated you would at least want a trail of some sort, charges filed against you...anything really.

He went on the hunger strike immediately in mid-December, not after years or months of detention.

I doubt either party here has clean hands, ultimately.

Sounds about right. Our own country now has similar laws.

 

Absolutely insane. F*** Israel...we have no business supporting this regime. We're instigating violence and angering the middle east for supporting a country the size of the California bay area.

I like how you had no substantial reply to my last comment on this issue and you have non here too but take it as "JEWS BAD!"

You can take it as a victory even though your argument is nothing but ad hominem and childish.

 

at least you got a kudo for being a moron.

As soon as I saw UPDATE in giant font I did not think it would be a pleasant update.

Good on Israel for... avoiding probable violent demonstrations and a PR disaster in this particular case?

I wonder how long a person can survive without food, this guy is a beast at starving.

I wouldn't say good on Israel. A spokesmen called him a terrorist and it seemed they had a case on him but I guess that isn't true. They didn't really have any evidence against him to put him on actual trial and convict him so they decided to let him go.

Which is a natural thing to do, when you aren't charged or found guilty of any crime you let the person go. B'Tselem, the Israeli Information Centre for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories holds that Israel is holding about 400 prisoners, a couple of minors without charge in prison right now.

A man can survive about 70 days without food, the most famous case of death by hunger strike was probably Bobby Sands who died on his 66th day.
