Muhammad Allan Suffered Brain Damage

Muhammad Allan Suffered Brain Damage

by Stephen Lendman

Barzilai Medical Center tests showed Allan suffered brain damage - from over two months of agonizing hunger striking for justice denied him.

Israel bears full responsibility for this crime against humanity - one of countless others committed daily against millions of defenseless Palestinians.

Thousands of innocent victims rot in Israel’s hellish gulag - guilty only of being non-Jews, wanting equal rights they’re systematically denied, forced to live under brutalizing military occupation, illegal under international law.

It’s unknown if Allan’s brain damage is reversible. He’s been in critical condition for days. His brother describes him as virtual zombie-like - unable to hear or see.

On Wednesday, during a High Court hearing on his case, Israeli prosecutor Yochi Gensin said:

“If the examination shows that (Allan’s brain damage) is…irreversible permanent cognitive damage, the state will announce that his administrative detention is to be cancelled.”

Barzilai Medical Center said his condition is deteriorating. Over two months without sustenance may have left him in a permanent vegetative state, his cognitive functioning lost. Perhaps he’s too far gone to save. His life hangs by a thread, a victim of Israeli viciousness.

He remains in intensive care. It’s unknown if Israeli doctors are doing all they can to save him and try reversing his brain damage.

He regained consciousness after lapsing into coma for four days. Palestinian Prisoners Society head Qadura Fares said he’s unable to communicate.

Israel remains unaccountable for decades of high crimes too grave to ignore. Allan isn’t alone in his suffering.

Many other nameless, faceless Palestinians are victimized by Israeli ruthlessness. An entire population is terrorized - systematically denied justice.

Further reports will update Allan’s status. Support this courageous young man in solidarity. His struggle is ours.

His new book as editor and contributor is titled "Flashpoint in Ukraine: US Drive for Hegemony Risks WW III."
