Marwan Barghouti Busted Eating In Jail Cell During Hunger Strike

WATCH: Jailed Palestinian Terrorist And Hunger Strike Leader Caught On Tape Eating

by DEBORAH DANAN8 May 2017
The Israeli Prison Service released a video on Sunday that appears to show Palestinian terrorist and wannabe politician Marwan Barghouti secretly eating a candy bar and other food in the bathroom of his cell while purportedly leading a hunger strike. 
Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon said Barghouti’s eating proved that the hunger strike is nothing more than “a media stunt, which seeks to glorify terrorists with blood on their hands.”
According to Palestinian sources, there are 1,500 hunger strikers in Israeli prisons. The goal of the hunger strike is supposedly to improve prison conditions. Demands include resuming a second monthly visit by family members (originally cancelled by the International Committee of the Red Cross over budgetary concerns), restoring academic studies for prisoners, and allowing additional TV channels and cell phones in security wings.

Barghouti served as chief of the Tanzim armed wing of Fatah and is the founder of the terror group the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade. In 2004, he was found guilty of ordering terror attacks in three different locations and was implicated in another four.
