Palestinians called for a boycott of Pizza Hut after the chain published an insensitive ad about a prison hunger strike

A Pizza Hut spokesperson called the advertisement “completely inappropriate.”

Pizza Hut is facing international backlash for seemingly mocking a hunger strike by 1,500 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.

Amidst a hunger strike that has escalated tensions in the region, Pizza Hut Israel ran an advertisement on its Facebook page that superimposed the text "Barghouti, if you're going to break a strike, why not pizza?" over an image that supposedly shows hunger strike leader Marwan Barghouti breaking his fast by eating a chocolate bar. The pizza chain also Photoshopped a pizza box on the floor of the prison.

Naturally, the politically relevant advertisement was deemed to be in poor taste by Palestinians and the international community alike:

Pizza Hut making fun of Palestinian hunger strike. Outrageous. You have lost a life long customer. #Boycott #PizzaHut #EpicFail @pizzahut pic.twitter.com/xOWKpVdziV

Pizza Hut apologized in a note on its Israeli social media pages:

“Pizza Hut International apologizes for any offence caused by a recent post on Pizza Hut Israel’s Facebook page,” the apology message said. “It was completely inappropriate and does not reflect the values of our brand. The local franchise in the country removed it immediately and the relationship with the agency that posted it was terminated, and we truly regret any hurt this may have caused.”

The Israeli Pizza Hut Facebook page appears to have been deleted.

It’s a sign of how badly the Democratic Party has been hollowed out and steered to the left that there isn’t even a Dem Senator anymore to make a moderate argument about fighting terrorism.

It falls to, of all things, a Democratic Congresswoman from Hawaii to be her party’s lone voice of reason.

Representative and Iraq War veteran Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) argued the White House’s summit on violent extremism was “a diversion from what our real focus needs to be, and that focus is on this Islamic extremist threat” on Wednesday’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on the Fox News Channel.

“Unless you accurately identify who your enemy is, then you can’t come up with an effective strategy, a winning strategy to defeat that enemy. My concern here with the summit that’s happening right now in Washington is that it really is a diversion from what our real focus needs to be, and that focus is on this Islamic extremist threat that is posed not only to the United States and the American people, but around the world. From what we’ve heard so far, the administration is really claiming that the motivation or the — the thing that’s fueling this terrorism, around the world, is something that has to do with poverty, has to do with a lack of jobs, or lack of access to education, really a materialistic motivation. And therefore, they are proposing that the solution must be to alleviate poverty around the world, to continue this failed Bush and Obama policy of nation building. The danger here is, again, that you’re not identifying the threat, and you’re not identifying the fact that they are not fueled by a materialistic motivation, it’s actually a theological, this radical Islamic ideology that is allowing them to continue to recruit, that is allowing them to continue to grow in strength and really that’s really fueling these horrific terrorist activities around the world” she said.

You’re now hearing this argument breaking out into left-of-center media outlets like Vox and The Atlantic. But nearly no Dem in Congress is willing to stand up and state something as simple and common sense as this for fear of undermining Obama.

It’s like they have to protect their Chamberlain from reality by driving all the way off the cliff.
