Abie Nathan, who recently completed a 46-day hunger strike in protest against the Israeli government’s stance in the peace negotiations, announced Sunday he plans to go to Beirut by boat in order to donate equipment and medicine to the children of the stricken city. Nathan added that he was considering buying an ambulance to bring with him to the region. A “Children of Lebanon Foundation” has been established, to which IL 100,000 has already been donated, he said.
