Welcome to Palestine Today, a service of the International Middle East Media Center, www.imemc.org, for Tuesday November 27th, 2012.
Palestinian political prisoners implement a one day hunger strike and Israeli troops arrest three young men from Jerusalem. These stories, and more, coming up, stay tuned.
Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli military detention implemented on Tuesday a one day hunger strike in solidarity with two prisoners who entered their third month of hunger strike.
Samier Al Isawi and Ayman Al Sharawnah are both on hunger strike protesting the Israeli administrative detention and ill treatment by their captives. Israel uses the administrative detention to hold Palestinians for unspecified time for no reasons.
Elsewhere in Jerusalem Israeli forces stormed the Silwian neighborhood searched homes and arrested three Palestinian young men. Witnesses said that troops stormed their homes then arrested the young men and left. Soldiers gave no reason for the arrest.
In other news Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, decided to shift the Israeli policy and stance regarding the UN Thursday vote on the Palestinian nonmember status, and is currently tying to tone down and trim the Palestinian application instead of toppling it by a U.S. veto.
Israeli Media sources reported that Tel Aviv is holding extensive talks with Washington in an attempt to reach a different draft of the application that is more toned down, and would not cause political embarrassment to Israel.
On Sunday, Netanyahu sent his envoy, Yitzhak Molcho, to the United States to hold talks on the issue. The new Israeli stance is different than its openly declared rejection to any talks on the issue, and for even allowing the Palestinians to submit the application.
