When it seemed that Israel was safe and quiet under his iron yoke, fire and blood to all of Palestine, the heroic acts of thousands of prisoners, threatening to destabilize the situation. Happy is the culminating promised the ethnic cleansing of Jerusalem and Hebron, the colonization of the West Bank and the diversion of international attention to Iran and to Syria, where his hand is not at all alien nor innocent.
Over two thousand Palestinian prisoners and a prolonged hunger strike since April (some take longer) in defense of their dignity as people, demanding an end to arbitrary arrests that have been around a million people and the daily violations of the human rights to which they are subjected in the Jewish concentration camps (internment, as euphemistically prefer to call Zionists), sometimes imprisoned for years without trial. And all this at the infamy of the Security Council of the UN, as diligent as sclerotic sometimes and others, according c0nvenga. The UN Special Rapporteur for the Occupied Palestinian Territories, Richard Falk, said a few days ago he was "appalled" by the human rights violations committed systematically in Israeli jails. His actual words were:
"I am appalled by the continuing violations of human rights in Israeli prisons and appealed to the Government of Israel to respect its international human rights obligations in respect of all Palestinian prisoners"
The UN secretary general, Ban Ki-Moon, his mouth small and with little media coverage, will not disturb their employers from the U.S. and Israel, has called on the parties to the settlement of the situation and the cessation of administrative arrests and that the Palestinians in that state of limbo are charged and brought to fair trial or released.
Although most prisoners are on strike since April 17, there are some who take more than 75 days without food and are on the verge of death. It is zaer Halahleh and Bilal Diab, who have already beaten the sad record of the 10 Irish Catholic activists who were left to die by the Thatcher government in the Maze prison. Zaer, as indicated by the prison doctor, die at any time if you do not eat, your heart beats fast, your muscles have contracted, have high blood pressure, fever, vomiting blood, suffering an infection in part of his body, bleeding through the gums and lips and has lost 30 kilos since I stopped eating. In addition, many other prisoners have toughened their strike and threatened to stop eating even water, which can worsen your situation so drastically in the coming hours. 4 others are in similar conditions and feared for his life.
Any resemblance to the activation of the political machine and media and international propaganda when, for example, the hunger strike of Cuban prisoners serving USA is purely coincidental. However, while seeking to ignore or hide what happens, this strategy of Gandhian nonviolent struggle against Israel threatens to destabilize the fragile balance in the area based on the violent repression and buying intentions of the Palestinian Authority. If prisoners begin to die activist, is likely to overflow the rage for many years. Years of concessions to Israel for not achieving anything, waiting containment of political negotiations without having any visible output to the occupation and colonization, murders, kidnappings, torture, starvation and malnutrition, bombing of civilians , of resignation to resistance and self-defense against aggression and continuing violations of human rights. Palestine can be a pressure cooker about to explode.
Jihad has threatened to break the cease-fire if an inmate dies. Hamas says the situation is on the streets overflow and the Third Intifada is expected despite the Palestinian Authority . Israel must measure its steps very well if it is to continue to maintain the status quo indefinitely until it fills all that interested in Palestine before defining its borders, if it ever does. The Palestinians know they have been abandoned by most of the Arab countries, which have coordinated their political agendas with the U.S. and Israel and that practically only rely on themselves. It is likely that, with this strategy, achieve some positive results on the human rights front, but anything is possible to happen in the coming days.
