Israel’s Supreme Court has rejected an appeal to release a Palestinian detainee on a hunger strike for several months to protest his detention without charge.

Khalil Awawdeh, 40, is protesting being jailed without charge or trial under what Israel refers to as “administrative detention”. His family says he has been on a hunger strike for 170 days, subsisting only on water.

A photo of Awawdeh taken by his lawyer on Saturday shows him appearing frail and lying in a hospital bed.

Happy Hunger Games! The Prequel To The Iconic Franchise Just Tapped Viola Davis For A Role

  Happy Hunger Games! The Prequel To The Iconic Franchise Just Tapped Viola Davis For A Role The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is officially underway and already has a few A-list actors under its belt. Read on for everything we know.The prequel is taking us way, way back to the 10th annual Hunger Games (you'll remember that Katniss' version started during the 74th). The focus will be on the tyrannical President Snow, who came to be overthrown during the the second half of the third book, Mockingjay.

“The Supreme Court effectively just gave Awawdeh a death sentence,” said Diana Buttu, a Palestinian lawyer and former negotiator.

“The Supreme Court rubber stamps everything that the Israeli security services put forward. It is only in very rare circumstances that we actually see that they are pushing back against what the security services are saying.”

The court on Sunday rejected an appeal by the lawyer, Ahlam Haddad, calling for Awawdeh’s immediate release because of his failing medical condition.

The Israeli military arrested Awawdeh in December 2021, claiming he was an operative for the armed group Palestinian Islamic Jihad – an allegation his lawyer dismissed.

Awawdeh is one of several Palestinian prisoners who have gone on prolonged hunger strikes to oppose Israel’s detention-without-trial policy.

20 amazing foods and recipes to make in the microwave

  20 amazing foods and recipes to make in the microwave Foodies tend not to think much of the microwave. In fact, they hesitate to even reheat lasagna in it. The microwave is a great invention, however, in which you can cook many surprising things.

Israel claims the policy, which was used during the British Mandate for Palestine, allows the government to hold “dangerous suspects” without divulging sensitive intelligence.

But human rights groups say it denies prisoners due process and is aimed at quashing opposition to Israel’s 55-year occupation of Palestinian territory.

Legal observers also say the Supreme Court is not an impartial body, but part and parcel of Israel’s web of judicial, political and military processes to subjugate and suppress any resistance to the occupation.

“In the case of administrative detention, which is the worst abuse of power of the Israeli security services, you’d expect to see the highest level of scrutiny. But instead, it’s pretty much the lowest. What they’re trying to do is to push for someone to die from hunger strikes, because they want to see how far Palestinians will push it and what the reaction will be,” said Buttu.

50 things you should know by 50

  50 things you should know by 50 If you’re at the time of life where you’ve lived 50 years and have, if you're lucky, 50 more, then you’re expected to have learned and done things that make you mature. Basically, there’s stuff you should know by 50, whether it’s being comfortable in your own skin, achieving true work-life balance, or discovering the power of just saying no. In the scheme of things, 50 isn’t old; it can be the beginning of living life on your own terms.

INTERACTIVE: How many Palestinians are imprisoned by Israel?

Israel is currently holding some 4,400 Palestinian prisoners, 670 of whom are being held in administrative detention, a number that jumped in March as Israel began near-nightly arrest raids in the occupied West Bank.

Awawdeh’s family says he has not eaten food since March, when he began his hunger strike. Last week, his lawyer said his condition was deteriorating and filed the petition to Israel’s Supreme Court after an Israeli military court rejected a request for his release.

In light of Awawdeh’s condition, the Israeli military has suspended his administrative detention while he is hospitalised, allowing his family to visit.

The court said in its ruling on Sunday after examining the classified security information about Awawdeh, there was “solid and strong justification for the decision of administrative detention”, and said it hoped the suspension of the detention would “motivate him to accept the decision to end the hunger strike”.

Scientists Discover a Secret Messenger Between Fat And The Brain .
Scientists thought they understood how our brains kept tabs on the levels of fat in our bodies: by monitoring fat-associated hormones in our bloodstreams. But in a new study, researchers now discovered an entire additional messaging system. It turns out we have a whole sensory system dedicated to carrying messages from our fat tissues (adipose) to our brains. "The discovery of these neurons suggests for the first time that your brain is actively surveying your fat, rather than just passively receiving messages about it," says Scripps Research Institute neuroscientist Li Ye. "The implications of this finding are profound.
