Pizza Hut ad mocks Palestinian hunger striker Marwan Barghouti’s sneaky eating

Pizza Hut ad mocks Palestinian hunger striker Marwan Barghouti’s sneaky eating

As reports filter in that video of Barghouti eating may have broken the mass hunger strike

We reported the other day how imprisoned Palestinian terrorist Marwan Barghouti was caught violating his highly publicized hunger strike, VIDEO: Lead Palestinian terrorist hunger striker Marwan Barghouti cheats and eats.

The internet went wild with mockery:

The candy bar that Barghouti is seen wolfing down was clearly identifiable to any Israeli by its shiny green wrapper. It was Tortit, the Israeli chocolate-coated waffle with thin layers of almond cream, which has been on the market since 1975. The non-dairy snack, popular with vegans, is a familiar and nostalgic brand with a retro image – like Snickers in the United States.

There are reports in the Israeli media that the video has broken the hunger strike, with many prisoners abandoning:

Photographs of Marwan Barghouti eating in his cell and breaking his hunger strike have caused other security prisoners to return to eating, seemingly ending the hunger strike for hundreds of security prisoners.

The internet mockery of Barghouti may have reached its zenith when Pizza Hut ran an ad mocking Barghouti, showing a pizza box on the floor of his cell as he furtively ate on camera. The Times of Israel reports:

Pizza Hut’s franchise in Israel on Monday released an ad poking fun at Palestinian hunger strike leader Marwan Barghouti following the recent release of video footage showing him secretly eating a candy bar and cookies in his prison cell.

The ad drew widespread criticism from Palestinians and a call to boycott the chain, which issued a quick apology.

In the ad, which it posted on its Facebook page and later deleted, the pizza chain put a banner in Hebrew over a screenshot from a clip released by the Israel Prisons Service on Sunday of Barghouti eating. It read, “Barghouti, if you are already going to break the hunger strike, isn’t pizza better?”

The ad also included a photoshopped Pizza Hut box on the floor of the prison cell, as well as a piece of pizza in the sink.

The anti-Zionist Mondoweiss website, which supports the destruction of Israel is outraged, calling it “grotesque” that Israel won’t just stand aside and let Barghouti refuse to eat:

Israel has plunged into unfathomable depths of cynicism and callousness, in its mockery-campaign targeting hunger strike leader Marwan Barghouti for supposedly eating a cookie and a wafer in his prison cell toilet cubicle.

Not quite as grotesque as Barghouti’s role in the murder of five Israelis during the Second Intifada, for which he is serving five life sentences.

We in the counter-jihad movement should make greater use of mockery both to Islam in general and Islam’s jihadis in particular.

Being made fun of really, really gets under the skin of Muslims.

If SNL weren’t so in-the-tank-lefty, its writer would see Islam for what it is: a mother lode of comic material in the practices and beliefs of Muslims.

Good for Pizza Hut.

    Nope. Pizza Hut lost that good when they apologised. No good for them any more. Stupid, stupid, stupid. If you’re going to apologise then don’t do it in the first place. But if you’ve already done it and lost one side, then don’t apologise; stick to your guns so at least you gain points with the other side.

      Naw, you can never lose any ‘good points’ when decimating Palestinian animal hypocrisy with mockery – ‘It’s ALL Good’! It would have been nice to have a better Photoshop image, but you take what you can get and are thankful.

      Maybe the next image will show him with consensual visitation rights from his boyfriend.

      Milhouse, I think that was a “wink-wink, nod-nod” apology.

        I don’t think so. I think it was an abject “OMG what were we thinking, the person who did that has been disciplined and we will never ever do anything like that again, please don’t hurt us” apology. Which loses them all the points they got by putting it up in the first place.

    I’ve personally been told by muslims themselves that in those oh so famous fasting holidays – they only fast during the day and then stuff themselves with feasts of food every night.

      Um, what’s wrong with that? Did you really expect them to fast for an entire month?! Has anyone ever claimed they do that?! Surely everyone knows that Ramadan is a month of fasting from sunrise to sunset, which when it’s in the middle of the summer is quite long enough. I doubt I could do that every day for a month.

      Thankfully Jewish fasts aren’t that frequent, though two of them last 25 hours each, and Moslems tell me they couldn’t do that. So I guess it’s whatever you’re used to. I’d rather fast 25 hours twice a year, plus a handful of daytime fasts scattered through the year, than 30 daytime fasts in a row.

      Christians, on the other hand, don’t really fast at all; they just go vegetarian for a day and call it “fasting”. What’s that about? That’s not fasting, that’s a diet. Fasting means “nil per os”, as the medical fellows say. Nothing by mouth. No food, no drink.

It was a Jesse Jackson hunger strike. Once upon a time: Jackson went on a “hunger strike” and didn’t eat, then he got hungry and “passed” the hunger strike on to someone else while he got something to eat, then he “took the hunger strike back” until he got hungry again.

…. omg, where is the Chick-fil-A boycott team when u need them!

Some Muslim leaders seem to accumulate many millions as their people live in poverty; others eat candy while their friends starve.

The idea behind a hunger strike is that a prisoner is turning a prison sentence into a death sentence in the hopes of becoming a matyr for their cause. It sort of makes sense for people arrested on political charges but makes none at all for someone convicted of murder and already facing a life sentence with the certainty of dying in jail at some point anyway.

And also, I have to say that after learning about that Buddhist monk who actually set himself on fire to protest injustice, it’s hard to take a hunger strike – real or otherwise – all that seriously.

    Unfortunately, Barghouti is not “facing the certainty of dying in jail at some point anyway.” On the contrary, he has always been fairly confident of being released at some point, when convenient for his political career. For now he’s been content to conduct that career from prison, where he leads a comfortable life while racking up martyr points. Right now he’s preparing to run for president of the PA, from his cell. Which is what this hunger strike was all about. When he wants out, the PA will turn up the pressure on Israel, and have its allies in the US, EU, and UN turn up the pressure too, and Israel will fold as it always does; especially if he’s the newly-elected PA president.

Some of us call them “diets”.

BTW if you go back to the original article, I provided a full translation of the Channel 2 piece that had been run through Google Translate.

    Seriously?! Two people disapprove of having an accurate translation of a relevant newspaper article just because I provided it?! Who are these people, and what are they doing here? You know what, whoever you are, drop dead, and I mean that literally. Your hate-filled souls don’t deserve to exist. Inside you’re just as bad as Barghouti, even if you haven’t got the guts to kill anyone and instead use your viciousness to hurt people emotionally. You should know that causing the blood to drain from someone’s face is morally a kind of murder.

Don’t apologize Pizza Hut. You hit this one out of the park and should be proud of yourselves. I am.
