Jewish dissident Noam Federman, who is very ill after 50 straight days of not eating, is continuing his hunger strike in an Israeli prison.
Federman is urinating blood because of severe kidney stones, is too weak to walk, and has lost over 45 pounds.
Even politicians and community leaders who completely disagree with Federman's right-wing, Torah-true philosophy are publicly condemning the Sharon-Mofaz regime's barbaric torture of this political prisoner.
Federman has been sentenced to six months in "administrative detention," meaning that he is being imprisoned with no charges and no right to a trial.
Even Knesset (Israeli Parliament) member David Azulai of the left-wing Shas Party (which supported the suicidal Oslo surrender agreement with the PLO terrorists that led to the murder of over 1,500 innocent Israeli Jews) visited Federman in Ashmoret prison and expressed shock and horror over the brutal conditions that he witnessed.
For two whole months, Federman was thrown into a 6' x 3' cell, a bright light burned in the cell 24 hours a day, the cell's walls were painted dark black, a mattress was placed on the cell's filthy floor, and there was a hole in the middle of the tiny cell's floor that served as the toilet.
Whenever Federman attempted to sleep, cockroaches and other insects in the filthy cell would begin crawling all over his body.
Federman was kept in this torture chamber 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with no right to go out for exercise.
After an unbelievable two months of this barbarism, Federman was moved to another torture chamber, where he is currently being held.
This new torture chamber is 6' x 6', and has big holes in its walls. Large rats come out of the holes in the middle of the night, running over Federman's body as he unsuccessfully attempts to sleep.
Federman is not allowed to make telephone calls, and is not allowed to receive visits from his loving wife Elisheva or his seven children.
Federman is drinking fluids. Therefore, the prison doctor ordered that he be given milk. The prison authorities responded to the doctor's order by giving Federman only one quart of milk a week.
The prison doctor also ordered that Federman be given vitamins every day. The prison authorities - under orders from the Sharon-Mofaz regime - have refused to give Federman any vitamins.
Knesset member Azulai of the left-wing Shas Party warned last week that Federman's physical condition has deteriorated sharply and that his very life is in grave danger.
Azulai announced that he would form a lobby of Knesset members who would demand an immediate end to this inhuman cruelty toward Federman.
Knesset member Gila Finkelstein of the National Religious Party (NRP) released to the public a letter which she sent last week to Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz protesting the "intolerable conditions" of Federman's imprisonment.
Right next to the persecuted Federman, Arab terrorist prisoners are given air conditioned rooms (not cells) with televisions and radios, catered food brought in from outside restaurants, cell phones, regular visits from family and fellow terrorist friends, and daily outside recreation and exercise.
Conditions are so good for these Muslim mass murderers that some of them do not want to leave.
Arab terrorist Muammar Abu Sheik, serving 17 life sentences for slaughtering 17 innocent Jews, strolls an Israeli prison yard with his beloved Koran.
