Palestinian Arabs call for Pizza Hut boycott after Facebook post "mocked hunger strikers"

Source: Newsweek

"Palestinians want to take a slice out of Pizza Hut's profits in Israel, launching a boycott campaign against the American chain after it allegedly mocked the leader of a mass hunger strike in Israeli prisons in a Facebook post on Monday. According to Palestinian social media users, Pizza Hut posted a picture of strike leader Marwan Barghouti in his cell, taken from footage the Israeli Prison Service released on Sunday, alleging that he had broken the hunger strike on two occasions to eat cookies and a candy bar. Text accompanying the post on Pizza Hut's 100,000-strong Israeli Facebook account is alleged to have read: 'Barghouti, if you're going to break a strike, isn't pizza better?'" (05/09/17)
