ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the hunger strike by Samer Issawi, a Palestinian, following his arrest by Israel without trial. Issawi was released from prison as part of a prisoner exchange between Hamas and Israel in October 2011 but he was arrested again 9 months later. U.S. ambassador Dan Shapiro has promised to release 550 Palestinian prisoners before the visit of U.S. President Barack Obama to Israel.
