For Palestinians to up the ante. With the forthcoming visit by the US Sec of State, Netanyahu wants to downplay Palestinian issues as much as possible so as to continue his policy of population transfer of Jews into residual Palestine for as long as is possible. He doesn't want to draw any attention to this and wants to remove Iran as a threat to total Israeli hegemony in the region. If a hunger striker dies he should be given a dignified Palestinian state funeral, attended by 100,000's.
