Israeli protesters barbecue outside prison where Palestinian terrorists on hunger strike

Israeli protesters barbecue outside prison where Palestinian terrorists on hunger strike

Hoping smells would waft into the prison.

Terrorist mastermind Marwan Barghouti has organized a mass hunger strike by over 1000 imprisoned Palestinian terrorists.

He announced the hunger strike in The NY Times, which initially refused to list in his bio that he was in prison for 5 murders, NY Times gives Palestinian terrorist Marwan Barghouti platform to announce hunger strike. Barghouti is considered a leading candidate to become president of the Palestinian Authority after Mahmoud Abbas, and the hunger strike is seen as a way to position himself politically.

The  Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs detailed Barghouti’s terror activities:

1. Marwan Barghouti Served as Secretary General of Fatah in Judea, Samaria and Gaza, a member of the Palestinian legislature, head of the Tanzim, and the founder of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades which has carried out a large number of deadly terrorist attacks killing scores of Israelis and wounding hundreds.

2. In the framework of his activities, he has received large amounts of funds from different sources both inside and outside Israel. Among these sources is the Palestinian Authority. The specific allocations of these funds were authorized by the actual signature of Yassser Arafat. These funds were used by Marwan Barghouti to finance many activities carried out by terror cells in the West Bank.

3. Marwan Barghouti served as the most senior official in the Al-Aqsa Brigades. Nasser Avis, who was recently captured in Samaria, and Ahmed Barghouti, who was Marwan Barghouti’s personal assistant, reported directly to him. These two served as his operational officers and, under the initiative of Marwan Barghouti, launched dozens of attacks, including a large number of suicide bombings within Israel.

4. The following are some of the more heinous terror attacks for which he is responsible:

  • Jun 12, 2001 – The murder of a Greek Orthodox monk on the road to Ma’ale Adumim.
  • Jan 17, 2002 – The shooting attack during a bat mitzva celebration at a banquet hall in Hadera. Six Israelis were killed in this attack, 26 were injured.
  • Jan 22, 2002 – The shooting spree on Jaffa Street in Jerusalem. Two Israelis were killed, 37 wounded.
  • Feb 25, 2002 – The shooting attack in the Jerusalem residential neighborhood of Neve Ya’acov. One Israeli policewoman was killed, 9 Israelis were wounded.
  • Feb 27, 2002 – The murder of an Israeli at a coffee factory in the Atarot industrial zone of Jerusalem.
  • Feb 27, 2002 – The suicide attack perpetrated by Daryan Abu Aysha at the Maccabim checkpoint in which two policeman were injured.
  • Mar 5, 2002 – The shooting spree at the Tel Aviv Seafood restaurant. Three Israelis were killed, 31 wounded.”

The whitewash of Barghouti’s past was met with such derision that the NY Times issued a clarification and a (meaningless) reprimand from the Public Editor, An Op-Ed Author Omits His Crimes, and The Times Does Too.

As part of the public relations campaign, Palestinians demanded the world “save” terrorist hunger strikers from their own hunger strike.

In that post, we documented how Israeli authorities had isolated Barghouti and transferred some prisoners to other prisons. But some Israelis are taking matters into their own hands.

Members of a “far right” Israeli party have set up a barbecue outside the prison in the hope the smell will reach the hunger-striking prisoners, The Jerusalem Post reports:

National Union activists held a barbecue to taunt Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike Thursday.

The youth branch and secretary-general of the far-right party, which has two representatives in Bayit Yehudi, Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel and MK Bezalel Smotrich, set up grills outside the Ofer Prison to “celebrate the hunger strike” and “break the spirit” of the strikers, in hopes that the smell of the meat wafts into the prison.

The prisoners “will enjoy the breathing in the smoke and suffer from the smell of the meat and show them that we will not give in to their whims.”

The group also called on the government “not to surrender to the oppressor terrorists and act with full force to free the captives [Hadar] Goldin and [Oron] Shaul,” who are presumed dead and whose bodies are being held by Hamas in Gaza.

Israeli police, however, shut down the barbecue after 45 minutes, Israel National News reports.

BBQ so good it only requires your middle finger.

Have to love the humor of the barbecue.

A little dark, but I LIKE it…!!!

Gas warfare by civilians? Hmm.

I think Israel should help the hunger strikers by not bringing them food. You know they’re just sneaking a bite in the night, and that makes the strike go on forever. Help ’em out.

I hope the meat was pork.

    Um, what? How can you imagine they’d be cooking pork? For whom?

      Tom Servo in reply to Milhouse. | April 20, 2017 at 2:06 pm

      Maybe for some North Carolina visitors? (if they were from Texas it’d have to be beef brisket)

      boy your are a dense idiot.

        Milhouse in reply to dmacleo. | April 20, 2017 at 10:39 pm

        No, you are. This is Israel. Thanks to an activist and aggressively leftist judiciary, pork is easier to get than it used to be, but one still has to look for it, and it still carried a stigma even among those who don’t keep much. Nobody attending this sort of protest would be so rude as to grill it in public, even if they eat it themselves.

          Arminius in reply to Milhouse. | April 21, 2017 at 12:08 pm

          I often disagree with you, Milhouse. Still, my heart goes out to you when I see you subjected to this. Israel. Mosaic law. Duh!

          Arminius in reply to Milhouse. | April 21, 2017 at 1:49 pm

          As I recall, the ordnance man was not a Jew. Just pissed off because Guadalcanal did not afford the conveniences of a carrier and Swede Larsen didn’t know the difference.

          “Chief among the personnel stories is that of Lieutenant Harold H. “Swede” Larsen, who stayed with the squadron’s detachment in Hawaii during the Midway battle and took command thereafter as the senior surviving officer. To the extreme regret of VT-8’s junior officers and enlisted men, Larsen turned out to be “a bullheaded young martinet with the charming leadership style of Captain William Bligh.” Although fearless in battle (he overtly boasted that he’d earn a Medal of Honor at Guadalcanal), Larsen was a cruel despot to his men, two of whom even tried to shoot him.”

          There were no bomb trucks/dollies! Swede laid into his ordnance man for dumping the bombs into into the mud lie there was another choice.

          But Swede was fearless in battle. So was Katz.

          “At the other extreme were men like Aaron Katz, a Jew who had to suffer Larsen’s virulent anti-Semitic insults while becoming one of the squadron’s most successful pilots, and John Taurman, who survived a ditching but refused his automatic stateside leave in order to stay with the squadron and was killed shortly thereafter…”

          Most of the men in torpedo 8, in the Navy, hadn’t heard of a Jew. Aaron Katz taught them what to think.

          I hope you have your tree and your lights set up because June is coming up fast.

          Um, my what? The next holiday coming up is Shavuos (which Tom Lehrer spends in East St Louis).

        Arminius in reply to dmacleo. | April 21, 2017 at 10:07 pm

        You just have to be the #$$hole, Milhouse.

        Evil Otto in reply to dmacleo. | April 22, 2017 at 7:02 am

        Congratulations, dmacleo, that was almost English.

    Arminius in reply to rinardman. | April 21, 2017 at 4:35 am

    Am I missing something like the word “beef?”

    Seriously, non-Jewish people, quit with the punish them with pork talk. We can punish them with beef.


When does a tailgate party become a human rights violation? Well, now I guess.

Absolutely perfect! As a Christian, I would make it pork chops and tenderloin!

    Arminius in reply to Romey. | April 21, 2017 at 4:44 am

    As a Christian you should be more concerned about winning souls to Christ. Not depating points.

    Just saying.

Ha love it! Too bad the authorities shut it down so soon though but man what a way to troll some of the worst scum of the earth!


I like their chutzpah!

What happens to a huge hunger strike when no one cares? I mean if the Israelis just wait for them to die one by one, then their problems and costs go down proportionally and they cannot be blamed because FORCING someone to eat against their will is a violation of their civil rights. I see this as a win-win.

This is funny. When the terrorists went on hunger strike my immediate thought was the prison should instead of feeding the guards in a cafeteria have a BBQ just outside the walls holding the hunger strikers.

This is not an original thought. Obviously. My admiral remarked that if the NORKs invaded the south we could stem the advance simply by dropping McDonald’s happy meals in the battle area. The NORKs would stop and eat.

Here’s hoping that, if the reports are true, now that we have more than one carrier in the AO that they rotate holding steel beach…

“Barbecuing on the Deck of Aircraft Carrier – USS Nimitz “Steel Beach Picnic””

… upwind and just close enough to shore to perhaps cause a revolution.

bread and water for the rest of his term would be nice.

Definitely put him in solitary and help him with his hunger strike. We don’t want him doing a Cindy Sheehan hunger strike and gaining weight do we?

People bemoaned the rise of right wing online trolling. But this is my favorite thing on the interweb.

I was going to suggest some skirt steak, but fajitas would be cultural appropriation.

Professor, despite the misbehavior of Milhouse, I intend if you allow, to make a commotion on the anniversary of Midway.

It’s important.

This will not be forgotten. Not on my watch.
