This friday will be the 94th day of hunger strike for tortured Palestinian journalist Mohammed Al-Qiq who has been imprisoned for his reporting, without charge or trial, by Israel since last November.
Mohammed went on hunger strike to protest his torture after they threatened to rape him, his wife and his children.
Mohammed Al-Qiq's lawyers have warned that his life hangs by a thread, he could die at any moment. He can no longer breath easily and is suffering severe pain. His body has "collapsed". His eye sight is going, has low heart rate, is unable to talk, and is suffering extreme cramps and stiffness. Doctors in HaEmek Medical Center are anticipating his death at any moment.
Mohammed Al-Qiq's wife Fayha Shalash has appealed on video in english for international support to save Mohammed's life.

"[Deportation at the airport] We saw the injured [Turkish] men going through.. a lot had a leg cut out of their trousers or an arm cut out of their top. It had been cut out to treat their wounds.. they were covered in blood, blood that had been there for three days, and some of them had wounds that were still bleeding.. What upset me most was seeing the dozen men, one after another, hobbling across the terminal, with a bandaged foot. I couldn't ask them why so many of them had a bandaged foot, I couldn't ask them what had happened, because if they spoke or if any of us spoke to them the Israelis beat the injured person.. We later found out that they had these injuries on the tops of their feet from when the troops came down from the helicopter on the Mavi Marmara, and they came down firing - they had been shot from above. Some of the men that were killed were shot at close range - head and chest, but a dozen of the men who were shot, among 59 people who were shot, they were shot at the tops of their feet - the bullets were coming down.. They weren't given a wheelchair or a pair of crutches, and if any of the other passengers stood up and tried to offer [help].. that person was dragged away and smacked by these Israelis. The Israeli soldiers sat on the floor, laughed and sniggered and made every one of these Turkish men hobble and hop all the way across, some 200 metres, everyone of them, one by one, made to do that purely for the sick amusement of the Israeli soldiers."
