Day 9 of Dr. Sami Al-Arian Hunger Strike UPDATE DAY 14

Day 9 of Dr.
Al-Arian’s on Hunger Strike
Today is the ninth day of Dr. Sami Al-Arian’s hunger strike for justice, in which he is abstaining from both food and water. He has grown weaker and has already lost 20 pounds.

UPDATE: DAY 14

14 Days of Hunger Strike, Dr. Sami Lost 25 Pounds
Even after being transferred to a federal medical facility, Dr. Sami Al-Arian still has not received water or been offered an IV. A doctor who examined him Monday said he is suffering from dehydration and starvation. 

It seems as if there is a question over whether authorities are doing whatever they can to safeguard the health of Dr. Al-Arian.  Please keep him and his family in your dua’ and go to his website to learn about his case and the current details.  Normally, governments are loathe to let hunger striking prisoners die as this is an amazing statement against their oppressors.  (Dozens of prisoners at Guantanamo have been force fed (a form of torture) so that they could not die on hunger strike.
