Worldwide Reaction To Palestinian Hunger Strike

Israel’s prime enabler, the United States government and its complicit, main stream media have virtually ignored the hunger strike being conducted by Palestinian prisoners. Many of these prisoners languish in Israeli prison under an Israeli policy known as administrative detention, where prisoners, who have not been charged with a crime, can be held for years. Elsewhere around the world. others have shown support for the Palestinian prisoners on a hunger strike.

In this podcast, we look at some examples of support like that Archbishop of Antioch, Gregory III Laham of Damascus (see: “Catholic Patriarch Stages Sympathy Hunger Strike in Solidarity with Palestinians”) and the city government of Dublin, Ireland (see: “Dublin City Council to fly Palestinian flag above City Hall for a month as “gesture of solidarity”).  (16 minutes)
