State Relents, Khader Adnan Ends 65-day Hunger Strike

Ranking Islamic Jihad official Khader Adnan has ended his 65-day hunger strike after the State Prosecutor announced that under current circumstances, it would not seek to renew his administrative detention.

According to the announcement, the State will not extend Adnan’s detention if no significant new material is added to the case  by April 17, the day his current detention order expires.

Adnan, who has been hailed in the Arab street and glorified in European media as a political dissident in the mold of IRA figure Bobby Sands, has been under administrative detention since mid-December, for posing a  threat to regional security.

    Just say it in plain English. The government capitulated to this terrorist’s media tactics. They should have let him die, or force fed him. One or the other.
    Once again, a bad decision under pressure.

  2. fay dicker says:

    Why are we not surprised that the powers-that-be have cravenly capitulated to the negative posturing of the Europeans and U.N., who view with equanimity the cold-blooded murder of innocent civilians but have kniptions when a Palestinian terrorist willfully engages in a hunger strike. The threat that if he dies the Israelis will be culpable is the height of hypocrisy.
