"Over the weekend, Israel's Supreme Court ruled that officials can force-feed prisoners on hunger strike, news agencies reported on Monday. ... A hunger striker 'is not an ordinary patient, but a person who knowingly willingly places himself in a dangerous situation as a protest or a means of attaining a personal or public goal,' the court decided. The justices said they had examined Israeli, Hebraic and international law to arrive at the ruling." (09/12/16)
