Over the past week, hundreds of Palestinian Muslim terrorists being imprisoned in Israel have gone on a hunger strike to protest their captivity, led by high-profile Palestinian terrorist Marwan Barghout. As the hunger strike continues to make the bleeding heart liberals across America gasp in horror, local right-wing Israelis decided to cook up something special over the weekend outside of the prison that’s sending Muslims and liberals world-wide into a collective freaking rage.
Giving zero craps about the feelings of Hamas and Palestinian terrorists being held inside who continue to whine about the conditions of the prison, a group of local Israelis decided to drop by the prison for a special little cookout. Bringing huge slabs of BBQ and a few grills, the started grilling up some pig meat in the hopes that the aroma of the sizzling meat would help “increase the suffering” of the Muslim terrorists inside. Via Milo:
The strike has been planned out for quite some time, as it continues to gain widespread support by leftist morons who always side with Muslim terrorists. Here’s another picture where the group of Israelis are chowing down and smiling, as the smell of pork is no doubt infuriating the Muslim terrorists just a few yards behind them.
Epic. What a perfect way to get revenge on these Palestinian terrorists who continue to wage war and launch terror attacks on the country of Israel. The Guardian has more on the story:
Hundreds of Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails have gone on hunger strike over conditions of captivity, with more expected to join on Monday, in one of the biggest protests in recent years.
The Palestinian National Council , the legislative body of the Palestine Liberation Organisation, also expressed its support for the strike on Sunday.
In a statement from Hamas the group said: “We warn the Israel Prison Service against bringing any harm to the hunger strikers. Any delay in answering their just demands will explode the situation inside all prisons. All prisoners will unite in the face of all those who might harm prisoners and their dignity.”
The number of prisoners going on hunger strike was expected to expand to 2,000 of the Palestinian prisoners being held in Israeli jails.
The hunger strike was announced to coincide with Palestinian prisoners’ day which is marked on Monday.
Prisoners’ demands include improved visitation rights from family members and easier access to telephones.
The visitation rights are a case of particular concern. While Israeli Prison Service regulations stipulate that all prisoners are entitled to family visits once every two weeks, in reality Palestinians from the occupied Palestinian territories are required to apply for permits to enter Israel in the first place – permits which are often denied.
The announced strike began at Hadarim prison, where Barghouti is serving a prison sentence handed down by an Israeli court for his conviction for five murders.
Barghouti’s key role is seen by both Israelis and some members of his own Fatah party as significant in the midst of efforts by an ageing Abbas to centralise power around himself and a small circle of close associates.
In a comment piece written from prison for the New York Times on Monday, Barghouti said that the hunger strike was “the most peaceful form of resistance available”.
“Decades of experience have proved that Israel’s inhumane system of colonial and military occupation aims to break the spirit of prisoners and the nation to which they belong, by inflicting suffering on their bodies, separating them from their families and communities, using humiliating measures to compel subjugation,” he wrote.
A largescale hunger strike – not least in the year marking the 50th anniversary of the occupation and the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, which is regarded as highly significant by Palestinians – has the potential to raise tensions again. They have only recently subsided after the 2014 Gaza war and a wave of Palestinian attacks that has declined only in recent months.
In a measure of Israeli concern over the strike, the security minister, Gilad Erdan, held meetings with security officials from the prison service, the military and Shin Bet internal security service on Sunday.
In a statement issued by Erdan, the minister accused Barghouti of using the hunger strike for internal Palestinian political aims. “The strike led by Barghouti is motivated by internal Palestinian politics and therefore includes unreasonable demands concerning the conditions in the prisons,” he said. “I have instructed the prison service to act in any way to contain the strike within the walls of the prisons and the Israel police to prepare and provide any help needed to the prison service for any scenario that is likely to develop.”
