Author's Note: The article concentrated on the efforts of British government to persuade Catholic bishops and theologians in Britain and Ireland to denounce the hunger strikes as suicide. After a long discussion of the article, sponsored by Editor Tom Burns of The Tablet, with a large group of British MPS and Lords, and press figures, its result was to remove this argument from the table for the rest of the hunger strike. It was largely responsible for the invitation to mediate between the British Northern Ireland Office and the IRA Army Council for many weeks of the hunger strike.

During a visit in May 2005, Hussein el-Husseini described this paper, along with correspondence with many Lebanese leaders, as having contributed substantially to the forming of the Taif Agreement.
