With the start of peace talks in Washington between Israel and the Palestinian Authority less than a week away, PA political party Fatah, headed by President Mahmoud Abbas, glorified terrorist Abdallah Barghouti  as a “brave prisoner.”

On the official Facebook page of the Enlistment and Organization Commission of Fatah, the party glorified five of the suicide bombings that Barghouti prepared explosives for and which killed 61 “Zionists,” Palestinian Media Watch reported on Thursday.

The terrorist was honored as a “brave prisoner” and his attacks were described as “self-sacrificing activity” and “Martyrdom-seeking operations,”a Palestinian euphemism for suicide bombings.

Barghouti is serving 67 life sentences in Israel for preparing explosives for terror attacks in which 67 people were murdered:  Sbarro restaurant (15 killed, Aug. 9, 2001), Sheffield Club (15 killed, May 7, 2002), Moment Café (11 killed, March 9, 2002), triple attack at Ben Yehuda pedestrian mall (11 killed, Dec. 1, 2001), Hebrew University (9 killed, July 1, 2002), and Bus 4 in Tel Aviv (6 killed, Sept. 19, 2002).

  • Enough with crowded Israeli prisons. Enough with holding terrorist murderers as bargaining chips. Time for the death penalty. When we remember all those people Barghouti murdered, and all those children among the victims, how does he deserve to live while Eichmann didn’t? Just because he doesn’t have the massive Nazi genocidal machine at his disposal doesn’t make his crimes any less evil.

  • Let me apply the Helen Thomas logic here.
    Abdallah Barghouti is a Kuwaiti? Arafat was an Egyptian.

    Every other indigenous group names the place, they are from, with their name for themselves. Only the Palestinians take their name for themselves from the place where they’re at; using a place name assigned to part of the region, by the Romans. Moreover it begins with a letter not in their alphabet. There is no voiceless velar plosive in Arabic – no “P” – only the voiced form; the “B”. So they fuff it; “Filastin”. I guess this means to show that they are philistines; but everybody already knows that.

    Israel and her PM Mr.Bibi you are being blackmailed into given not only land to these terrorists but releasing Killers, simply leading to more trouble. Yesterday alone, the Cease Fire Agreement was broken again, how many times Israel? Mr BN listen to your nation, forget Livni and her fairy tale youthful dream of Peace. Rabbi ALH puts this whole concept of peace talks into perspective. Kill all Jews, Christians and secular citizens of Israel and yes there will be peace.

  • Leftists see the world they want, not the world we have.

    Obama, Kerry, Abbas offer PIECE talks, not PEACE talks.

  • “Palestinians” & most Arab Muslims don’t want peace, but rather want more land than Israel has already given them

  • How shameful of Israel to sit at the table with these savages Jew killers subhumans and talk “peace”

  • Larry Levine

    How can “peace talks” take place with parties who don’t want peace?
    Encouragement by the U.S. to Israel to sit down at the same table with “people” who admit to, and glorify murder is beyond any reason.
    Does President Obama really think he’s going to leave his administration as a successful peace maker? If he does, he’s dreaming.
    It’s time Mr. Obama considered what’s right, and that he still cannot come up what the world really is. It’s very rarely what he thinks it is.
    At the minimum, the above story gives 67 good reasons not to even try for a peace agreement that cannot happen. This page isn’t long enough to give all the reason.

  • It is not front and center because ‘mainstream media’ are deeply enmeshed with politically-coerced censorship, which means they are deeply in love with terrorists. Once upon a time there was such a thing as journalistic integrity. Today that is interpreted as pushing your own biases as hard as you can. It is also true of Fascist Fox and other right-wing media. They report what is important to them, and make no attempt to be fair. In today’s world, that means the right takes all policy of Israel’s government as ‘gospel.’

  • To think that Israel has a “Peace Partner” is delusional..The muslims are trying to destroy Israel incrementally, as in death by a thousand cuts.

  • I don’t understand why this sort of information is not front and center in the international media. It is entirely irresponsible for “journalists” and “diplomats” to ignore such inflammatory material and continue their false propaganda that the Palestinians seek peace. How can Israel be expected to negotiate in good faith with such monsters?

  • I disagree with you. I believe wholeheartedly that the so-called “Palestinians” want piece – a very big piece.

    10 New Hollywood Movies That Aim to Show Support for Israel (SATIRE)

    Ten major film studios are currently in production on projects that promote a decidedly pro-Israeli narrative. In famously liberal Hollywood, such a development has left mouths agape and set tongues a wagging. Since the Jewish State began defending itself from the thousands of rockets that Hamas has hurled at it – as well as ongoing terror attacks and murders, the overwhelming number of Tinseltown’s producers, directors, actors, and studio moguls have remained indifferent to the plight of millions of Israeli [...]

    Israeli Judoka Yarden Gerbi (63kg), 25, of Netanya, on Thursday lost the final round at the Judo World Cup, and her world title to Clarisse Agbegnenou of France, at a match held in Russia. “I have mixed feelings,” Gerbi told Israeli Army radio. But, “I shouldn’t assume that I’d win the world Judo championship twice in a row,” she admitted. Gerbi won gold in Rio De Janeiro last year. “When I made my decision, I knew it was going to [...]

    Surviving the Holocaust by Hiding Their Faith (REVIEW)

    “Jews Out!” was just the name of a child’s game that three little girls played in World War II Europe. But all is not as it seems because the three girls were Jewish, but hiding their true identities. In award-winning author R. D. Rosen’s riveting non-fiction work, Such Good Girls, “Jews Out!” wasn’t a game; it was a struggle for survival. The girls, Sophie, Flora, and Carla, grew up at a time and a place that did not allow them [...]

    JNS.org – “He was part hippie, part yippie, part beatnik, and part New Age,” wrote Elli Wohlgelernter in a Jerusalem Post eulogy in 1994, following the Oct. 20 passing of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. Twenty years later, more robust accounts of Carlebach’s life have come to the surface. Earlier this year, Natan Ophir published the book Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach: Life, Mission & Legacy. This past summer, Rabbi Shlomo Katz’s The Soul of Jerusalem hit the shelves. But even the authors will admit [...]

    Beatlemania Invades the Gaza Strip (SATIRE)

    As Hamas loses its grip on power in the Gaza Strip as a result of war, poverty and disillusionment, the Islamist terrorist group has developed an ingenious way to raise the moral of the 1.7 million Palestinian Arabs it was elected to serve. While currently focused on delivering a rocket into every Israeli home, Hamas has not left its own people behind. To gently wipe away the tears of children strategically placed inside kindergartens as human shields, the Hamas Interior Ministry has [...]

    Removing Jesus’ Jewish Identity From Artwork

    In a strong statement that challenges the historic divide between Christianity and Judaism, Pope Francis recently proclaimed, “Inside every Christian is a Jew.” But if you look at Renaissance artworks that depict Jesus, you will not find any evidence of a Jew inside the Christianized Jesus — even though the Gospels in the New Testament tell us that Jesus was Jewish to the core. Getting that point across to the public is a daunting task, as I learned in interviews I [...]
