Jerry Brown used to be a good guy. Here he is signing some legislation that forbids any attempts at Boycott, Sanctions, and divestment against Israel. Our story below is about the hunger strike of Marwan Barghouti and others around the world against the treatment of Palestinians. Nelsen Mandella and Jimmie Carter support Barghouti, as do many others. Brown the Sell Out, followed by more illustrations and then an interview:

And another of Nitwityahoo’s bitches:

Here is Barghoutti’s son:

It has been almost a month since over 1,500 Palestinian prisoners have been on hunger strike inside Israeli jails. The strike, which began on April 17, was called by Marwan Barghouti to protest poor living conditions in prison and the administrative detention law, which allows Palestinians to be held without charge. Barghouti is the most high-profile Palestinian in Israeli detention. Some have described him as the “Palestinian Nelson Mandela.” In a New York Times op-ed announcing the strike last month, Barghouti wrote, “Having spent the last 15 years in an Israeli prison, I have been both a witness to and a victim of Israel’s illegal system of mass arbitrary arrests and ill-treatment of Palestinian prisoners. After exhausting all other options, I decided there was no choice but to resist these abuses by going on a hunger strike.” We speak to his son Arab Barghouthi. He recently launched the “saltwater challenge,” asking supporters to express their solidarity with the hunger strikers by posting videos online drinking saltwater.
