A Palestinian Detainee Falls into a Coma after 2 Months of Hunger Strike in Israeli Jails

On Friday, the Palestinian prisoner, Mohammed Allan, falls into a coma in Israeli jails after being in a hunger strike for 2 months. He was sent to an Israeli hospital to be hospitalized at the intensive care unit, according to his father saying. Mohammed, who has been in a hunger strike since May, has lost his consciousness early in the morning and was then sent to Barzalai hospital in southern Israel where he is treated, Mohammed’s father told the Association Press. Mohammed had been detained for being affiliated with the Islamic Jihad, a violent Palestinian militant group, the father added. Recently, Israel passed a law that authorizes the judge to sanction the force-feeding or management of medical treatment to hunger strikers if there is a threat to the prisoner’s life, even if he refuses. But it’s still unclear if this law will be carried out. Critics argue that it is close to torture and Israel’s Medical Association has demanded physicians not to co-operate with the procedures. Over the recent years, many Palestinians detainees have gone on hunger strikes, which have raised tensions on the streets. Israel fears prisoners’ deaths due to hunger striking could raise violence. Naser Allan, Mohammed’s father, ... Read More »

Universe Is Fading Away, Say Scientists.

Universe Is Fading Away, Say Scientists.

An international group of astronomers predicts that the Universe is dying slowly and its sparkle will dim gradually in the near future. The universe may seem lasting, but it is actually dying and losing its bright twinkle, scientists said. The astronomers’ analysis of starlight from 200,000 galaxies shows that the energy produced in the universe is gradually fading away. They have discovered that their energy was twice two billion years ago. Scientists assert that stars are dying quickly while new ones are being born slowly, which means that the universe will dim and lose its twinkle over the coming few billion years. The head of the project, Simon Driver, of the International Center for Radio Astronomy Research, declares that the universe is sliding into old age. Energy in the Universe was first generated in the Big Bang, with locking up some portion as mass. Stars twinkle by reconverting mass into energy. However, universal dimming has begun because of a drop in the rate of new star creation, which sharpened about eight billion years ago. The universe is not going to be recovered in the future but dying gradually, said scientists. They have used the world’s most strong telescopes, looking at ... Read More »
