(Video) Palestinian leader of hunger strike purportedly enjoys candy bar in jail

Video has emerged which appears to show Palestinian leader and convicted terrorist Marwan Barghouti enjoying a candy bar and other foods while in jail. This wouldn’t be newsworthy except that Barghouti has led a hunger strike for better conditions for Palestinian prisoners since the end of April. Barghouti’s defenders say that the video is either doctored or more than a year old, and reporters, for their part, haven’t yet been able to identify when it was recorded. Watch the video yourself above, and decide if you think it’s evidence of Palestinian hypocrisy or Israeli subterfuge.
