Arab MK Azmi Bisharah (Democratic National Coalition) started Saturday an open ended hunger strike to protest the construction of the separation wall in Jerusalem area.
Bishara, who sat in a tent, close to the wall construction site, in Al-Ram neighborhood, told reporters that he will continue with his strike as much as he can, saying that he believe he will not be able to change the government policy, but hope to focus more light on the tragedies created by the wall construction.
Bishara accused Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon with attempting to divert the world attention away from the real issues, the tragedies created by the wall construction, to his vague disengagement plan.
Bishara believes that the wall was Sharon’s way to impose a final solution in the West Bank.
Bishara said that the wall section in Jerusalem creates the most devastating human conditions to Palestinians.
‘it separates families away from each others, it pushes dozens of thousands of Jerusalem citizens out of Jerusalem, it only separates Palestinians from Palestinians’ he said.
Bishara also said that even if Israel thinks of rerouting the wall, no rerouting can solve any of the above mentioned problems.
