The Palestinian Hunger Strike Ends and a Blogger Has the Inside Scoop
Published May 15th, 2012 - 05:06 GMT
Before the end to the hunger strike went mainstream, one blogger reports from the father of Halahleh, a prisoner who fasted 77 full days; are Allah and Yahweh the same entity? and a cartoon honoring the strikesr and their mothers
After 77 days, Thaer Halahleh to end hunger strike as Israel agrees to release, father tells EI blogger
Before it headed to major news headlines , this blogger had exclusive news about the agreement to end the strike.
"Palestinian prisoner Thaer Halahleh has agreed to end his hunger strike after 77 full days, on 15 May, EI blogger Linah Alsaafin tweeted after speaking with his father a short time ago.
Halahleh’s agreement reportedly comes after Israel agreed to release him from “administrative detention” – without charge or trial – on 5 June."
Oh, yes. He went there. Nothing stirs the pot more than drawing sides on who owns the monopoly on God. The most intriguing thing about this post are the comments themselves.
People of many angles get into the fray and of course it soon devolves into name calling and explaining the real reason people should be on the forum.
Mother's Day Cartoon - Solidarity with the mothers of Palestinian hunger strikers
A moving cartoon shows mothers who are in solidarity with their fasting sons. Maybe this is what helped bring them through to this exciting settlement which now allows for families to visit those in the prisons.
