Palestinian prisoners, terrorists or freedom fighters?

Nearly 6,500 Palestinians are currently incarcerated in Israeli jails, serving time for various crimes, with the majority of them indicted for terror related offenses. The story of those prisoners, which are defined by Israel as terrorists as opposed to the Palestinian public, which defines them as freedom fighters, has made headlines recently when more than 1,300 of them joined a hunger strike, demanding better conditions.
