Palestinian on hunger strike in mortal danger

It is Zionist newspeak, a sort of “Schutzhaft” and they call it “administrative detention”. No need to produce sufficient evidence and, on their land, all Palestinians are subject to military law. Hana Shalabi, a 30-year-old Palestinian woman, is just one more resident of the Occupied Territories who is being held in administrative detention. and she is now moving into the thirty-sixth day of a hunger strike apparently against not only the illegal imprisonment itself but also the humiliating and hurtful search that was conducted after her being arrested.

With an independent physician from Physicians for Human Rights – Israel (PHR-Israel) examining her a couple of days ago and determining that she needs to be hospitalized immediately, how this will end remains uncertain and all the more so since she now finds herself back in the IPS medical center in Ramleh Prison Hospital, having not being admitted to the civilian Meir Hospital, where she would at least have received better treatment. Indeed, we are told that Ms. Shalabi reported to the PHR-Israel doctor that during her various transfers yesterday, she was handled violently, including being “dragged across the floor”  and with the prisoner support and human rights association ‘Addameer’, the PHR-Israel and the human rights organisation, Al-Haq all demanding that she be immediately transferred to a hospital, “with adequate care that is uninterrupted by frequent and unnecessary transfers”, there would appear to be some evidence that not just content to imprison her without charges, her recent “transfer” might indicate that the Zionist authorities are intent on humiliating her further.

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
