Barghouti Fell for Israel’s Trap When Caught Eating Food in Secret during Hunger Strike 

2

Israel Minister of Public Security Gilad Erdan said that the Israel Prison Service (IPS) was aware that Palestinian hunger strike leader Marwan Barghouti was smuggling food into his cell and caught him in the act,Meir Turjeman reports for Ynet.

The exact same thing happened in a 2004 security prisoners strike led by Barghouti, where he was caught eating food in secret. Erdan said, “We’re going to make sure that the prisoners see the videos and understand who he really is. The strike he is leading has nothing to do with their prison conditions, and everything to do with the political interests of Marwan Barghouti.”
A senior official in the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) told Yediot Achronot that “whoever you ask will tell you on record that the video is fake, but behind closed doors people are admitting that it’s authentic. We were incredibly angry when we saw the recordings. There are mothers of prisoners who are on hunger strike as a show of solidarity with their sons, and suddenly they see that the great leader of the strike is eating in secret while they starve. He made a very big mistake.”
