Freeing Terrorist Barghouti Would Make Him Abbas’ Successor

If Israel releases terrorist Barghouti, it will have elected him as Arafat and Abbas' successor.

A Palestinian Authority survey has found that terrorist Marwan Barghouti, serving five successive life terms in prison but hoping to be freed by Israel, would easily win the election for the successor Mahmoud Abbas if the vote were held today.

“If presidential elections were between Marwan Barghouti and Haniyeh, the former would receive 60% and the latter would receive 34% of the participants’ vote,” according to the results in the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research poll.

If presidential elections were between Abbas, Barghouti and Haniyeh, Barghouti would receive the largest percentage (36%) followed by Abbas (30%), and Haniyeh (29%).

The results are similar to a poll in December but more significant now because Barghouti is one of the terrorists who has been added Abbas’ list of terrorists he wants Israel to release in order for U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s peace talks to continue.

If the Netanyahu government were to free Barghouti, and there is some support from the more leftist Cabinet minister to release him, Israel would in effect have named the successor to Abbas, who succeeded arch-terrorist Yasser Arafat.

Since Arafat won the Nobel Peace Prize, it can be assumed that the same fate would await Barghouti in recognition of his love for killing Jews and then switching strategies to take over Israel through Zionist governments’ willingness to commit hari-kari.

Barghouti started out his career as a terrorist at the age of 15, joining Arafat’s Fatah terrorist party and showing his promise as a model for young people by co-founding the Fatah Youth Movement. By the age of 18, Barghouti already had been arrested, and he quickly learned how terror pays off in Israeli prisons.

He studied and received his high school diploma while in jail, where the prison system is so sure that educating terrorists will change their lives for the better.

In Barghouti’s case, it changed the lives of dozens of Israeli. More accurately, it ended the lives of dozens of Israelis, with the tacit help of the Israeli government.

Israel deported Barghouti to Jordan for his leadership in the beginning of the Intifada in 1987 but returned under the terms of the Oslo Accords, the agreement that the Palestinian Authority has torn up clause by clause.

Israeli governments have had a weird penchant for pardoning terrorists, perhaps because the powers-to-be want to make sure that the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and IDF have plenty of work to do. Lebanon, Egypt and Syria apparently are too boring.

Seeing that Arabs could get what they wanted by  bleeding Israel dry in the diplomatic process backed by the United States and the European Union, Barghouti championed “land for peace,” so long as the Palestinian Authority could get land without having to agree to peace. The proof came in 2000 when he backed “new forms of military struggle” after the Camp David Accords.

He led the Tanzim terrorist group while proclaiming his opposition to violence against Israeli civilians – soldiers were fair game – and showed how much he could be believed by his involvement in suicide bombings. Barghouti was convicted for three attacks that killed five people in Tel Aviv, Judea and Samaria.

While in jail, Israel has given Barghouti all the mobile phones and tools he needs to use his jail cell to organize and incite Arabs throughout Israel and keep up his popularity. He even announced he would run from his prison cell to succeed Arafat after he died in 2004, but withdrew from the race in favor of Abbas.

He staked out his claim for the next Nobel Peace Prize by initiating and helping to formulate the National Conciliation Document of the Prisoners that called on Hamas, the Palestinian Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Islamic Jihad and the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine to form a coalition government and negotiate with Israel.

  1. Ch Hoffman says:

    the Ps will have the leaders of their choice
    if they don't get barghouti, they'll get someone just as bad

  2. The State of Israel must kill all the Arab terrorists, including those who are imprisoned, because the Arab terrorists are making war against Israel, so that they are war enemies, and it is written in the Torah, in Devarim (Deuteronomy) 20:10-18, that God commanded Israel to kill all the war enemies. The war enemies must be killed immediately, and not submitted to trial. The State of Israel must kill the Arab terrorists, instead of arresting them.
    The State of Israel must not make pact with the Palestinians, because it is written in the Torah, in Exodus 23:32 and 34:12 and Deuteronomy 7:2 that God commanded Israel not to make pact with the inhabitants of the Land of Canaan, that is the Land of Israel, also called "Palestine", and it is written in the Torah, in Numbers 33:50-53 and Deuteronomy 1:8 and 30:5, that God commanded Israel to possess all the Land of Canaan, that is the Land of Israel, also called “Palestine”. Therefore, the peace talks with the Palestinians must cease immediately.
    The State of Israel must expel the Arabs from its territory, because it is written in the Torah, in Bamidbar (Numbers) 33:52, that God commanded Israel to expel the other inhabitants of the Land of Canaan, which is the Land of Israel, which includes all the Palestine. The Arabs invaded the Land of Israel in the year 635 CE, so that they are invaders, and must leave Israel, and return to their own land, which is Arabia. This is not racism, because any person, of any race or ethnicity, can convert to Judaism.
