Mideast Israel Palestinians

Palestinian supporters of the Islamic Jihad militant group participate in a protest in solidarity with Khader Adnan, a senior member of Islamic Jihad jailed in Israel who has been on hunger strike for 66 days, in Gaza City, Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2012. Adnan, 33, is on a hunger strike protesting Israel's policy of long-term detention without trial. The life-threatening gamble has also drawn broader attention toward Israel's policy of "administrative detention," under which Palestinians can be held without charge for months or even years at a time. He is in poor condition and is being held under guard in a hospital in northern Israel. (AP Photo/Hatem Moussa)
