Headline: “The Fatah parliamentary faction: Marwan Barghouti is a fighter for freedom, independence, and just peace”
“The Fatah parliamentary faction saluted the [PA] Parliament and Fatah Central Committee member, prisoner Marwan Barghouti (i.e., terrorist who orchestrated three shooting attacks in which 5 were murdered), yesterday [April 14, 2016] on the 14th anniversary of his abduction, and praised his resolve in the face of the hangmen.
The faction made a statement calling to organize a widespread popular campaign of solidarity and support for the candidacy of MP Barghouti for the Nobel Peace Prize because this candidacy is of the entire Palestinian people, all of the freedom fighters, and the just Palestinian cause… Likewise, the statement emphasized the pride of the Fatah parliamentary faction in the struggle and resolve of MP Barghouti, his fellow MPs, and the other prisoners in the face of prison and the jailers. The statement said: ‘Barghouti and his fellow prisoners are writing the most spectacular epics of resolve and heroism every day that passes that they are still in the Israeli occupation’s dungeons as fighters for freedom, independence, and just peace.’”
