1. False claims
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (02.19.13)
"Samer al-Issawi, one of the four Palestinians who have been on hunger strike, has been refusing food, intermittently, for more than 200 days." Horseshit - it is not possible for anybody to survive even a quarter of that time without food. He has been eating and his lies are truly stupid - only a total moron would believe anything he says
2. More moral blackmail
Israeli grandma   (02.19.13)
Just one more tactic in the Arab war against Israel which they could not win with armed men. These prisoners were put in jail to protect Israeli civilians, and we all know that many have blood on their hands. They choose to starve themselves, although the prison service gives them daily meals - its on their heads if they make themselves ill. These are adults who have decided on this moral blackmail. Israeli prison service must call their bluff.
3. The risk of a tragic outcome
Get Real ,   UK   (02.19.13)
would arise from the release of prisoners returning to their terrorist ways.
4. I Support You!
Cheryl ,   Chicago, IL   (02.19.13)
Keep fasting 'till you all drop dead!
5. Don't be stupid
Toby   (02.19.13)
Don't be stupid and you won't get jailed. Now you pay for your mistakes. That's what jail is in a democratic country. Don't like it? Try the same terrorist stunt in a country with Sharia laws!
6. Cheryl, Chicago # 4
Arnold ,   Canada   (02.19.13)
Laughed out loud. You made my day. Hag Sameach Purim.
7. Just one more tactic in the Arab war
GZLives   (02.19.13)
against Israel which that they couldn't win on the battlefield, so they will win with moronic Leftists ... its insane
8. What heavy pressure is Israel feeling?
William ,   Israel   (02.20.13)
More threats by the PA? More protesting that always turns violent? The same talking heads in Europe warning "You best be careful"? This in Israel is what we call a typical "Tuesday".
9. Force Feed them or Let them Starve
Chaim Ben Kahan ,   Efrat, Israel   (02.20.13)
In honesty if these terrorist starved to death it's a win. If we force feed them that's fine too. In truth, why should we care about these criminals? These are political prisoners, but violent criminals who happen to be murderers.
10. Take away visitation rights, if they continue
Sharona Plowicz-Cahn ,   Mexico, Mexico   (02.20.13)
Then put them in asolation. Enough of this non sense. Israelies, stop being wimpy!
11. Let Them All Starve
ACortez ,   Anaheim, CA, USA   (02.20.13)
Then Israel wouldn't have to feed these animals.
12. One-day fast?
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.20.13)
Cowards. Frauds. Publicity-seekers. How about a fifteen-day fast? No water, either. I mean -- if you want to fast, do it correctly. In that case, it will be a two, perhaps three-day fast. But who cares? Murderers receiving their just -- you should pardon the expression -- desserts. Yum, yum.
