'Moderate' Fatah Leader Barghouti Calls to Resume Terror

(Israelnationalnews.com) Palestinian Authority convicted terrorist murderer Marwan Barghouti, often touted by Israel's left as a “moderate” PA leader, has called for a resumption of PA support for terrorist attacks on Israelis. His comments were printed last week in Al-Quds.

The PA should support terrorists in its midst who launch attacks on Israel, Barghouti explained, because it has been proven that the PA cannot achieve its goals by negotiations alone. He called to continue talks as well, and to pursue both peace talks and terrorism simultaneously.

Barghouti compared Israel to Nazi Germany, saying, “The occupier's defeat is certain, its fate will be no different than the fate of Nazism or fascism.”

Barghouti is serving five life sentences in prison in Israel for the murder of five Israelis in terror attacks. He was acquitted for lack of evidence of having arranged 33 other attacks. In August, he was elected in absentia to the top spot on the Fatah terror group's central council.

His new position led to renewed calls from Israel's political left to free him and allow him to take part in leading the PA. Israel should release Barghouti “in order to create a strong and moderate political leadership among the Palestinians,” Minister Avishai Braverman of Labor said.

MK Gideon Ezra of Kadima said Barghouti should be freed because “Israel needs a strong man who can negotiate.”
