Now, about Adnan the hunger striker -
Twitter vs the real world:
Khader Adnan’s ‘victory’
by Petra Marquardt-Bigman Feb 23, 2012
Over the past few days, pro-Palestinian activists demonstrated their ability to transform a well-known member of Islamic Jihad into a victim of Israeli abuse deserving of the solidarity of everyone willing to speak out (or at least tweet) in defense of human rights – including the truly sincere, the merely gullible, and the openly cynical.
Protesting his detention by Israel with a two-month hunger strike, Islamic Jihad member Khader Adnan was skillfully marketed as an innocuous baker, a devoted father, husband and son, who had been arbitrarily arrested, humiliated and tortured by the evil Israeli Capital O Occupation forces.
It mattered little that it turned out that Adnan had been caught on tape issuing a fiery call for volunteer suicide bombers.
Did you hear that "physicians for Human Rights"?...
Now, go and pay a visit to Mr. Tarabin!
(The Bedu who is rotting in the Egyptian jail for more the 11 years!)
Who is Tarabin?
Tarabin was arrested by Egypt in 2000, when he was 19 years old, after crossing the border from Israel into Sinai. Tarabin was charged on mysterious – and still unknown – charges of “spying,” and was tried in absentia for espionage by an Egyptian military court and was sentenced to 15 years in prison.
He was convicted under Egypt's emergency laws, and there is no possibility of parole.
(Tarabin doesn't have American citizenship!...)
