The hunger strike that entered its 14th day revolves`around a controversial figure that is Fateh general secretary in the West Bank prisoner Marwan al Barghouthi who from the beginning and since Oslo (1993) is a strong supporter of the peace agreement with israelis and supporter of the Israeli/Palestinian coexistence and has established very early relations with peace movements in Israel. Barghouthi is one of the peace plan assets`and one of the alternatives to Mahmoud Abbas , Now, champion of the Hunger strike, Barghouthi is leading the Hunger Strike in the israeli prisons whereby more than 1500 Palestinian prisoners are sharing in this strike living on water and salt . This promotion of Barghouthi is no doubt a promotion of the peace process at the detriment of the Intifada using the prisoners’ righteous cause for this purpose in order to gather a Palestinian consensus that proves difficult to get other wise.
