While hundreds of Palestinian prisoners were on a hunger strike, their ostensible leader, Marwan Barghouti, had himself a meal behind a curtain. The guards caught it on tape:
Prison Services spokesman Ofer Lefler said Barghouti asked wardens for the food and ate without knowing that a camera was filming from a small hole in the wall. Israel wanted to show fasting prisoners how their leader was behaving, Lefler said.
“I want to show the world and the Palestinians that we are dealing with terrorists,” Lefler said. “Barghouti is sitting on a pot of meat and he sends his friends to die.”
