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.

    i want to share this article via email. you dont have an option for email.

  • 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.
