Posted on December 29, 2009

BEIRUT — An 85-year-old Holocaust survivor entered the second day of her hunger strike on Tuesday, in protest over the Egyptian government’s refusal to allow an international Palestinian solidarity march to enter the Gaza Strip. “There comes a time in one’s life when one has to step up and risk one’s own body,” she said. “We’re in a desperate situation here, but not as desperate as the people in Gaza.”
