Fatah parliamentary faction praises terrorist Marwan Barghouti as “shining and renewing flame of struggle”

Headline: "The Fatah parliamentary faction: Marwan Barghouti is still a shining and renewing flame of resolve and struggle"
      "The Fatah parliamentary faction said in a statement for the 15th anniversary of the arrest of leader, [PA] Parliament member, prisoner, and Fatah Central Committee member Marwan Barghouti (i.e., terrorist who orchestrated three shooting attacks in which 5 were murdered): 'Prisoner Barghouti, who has begun his 16th year in prison, still constitutes a shining and renewing flame of struggle, and together with his comrades is heading an epic of resolve and heroism in the face of the captivity, the jailors, the occupation's injustice, and the ongoing oppression of our heroic prisoners and our people everywhere.'
The Fatah faction sent its regards and pride to leader Parliament member Barghouti and to all of the heroic male and female prisoners who will begin a new epic of resolve and heroism in a few days when they go on a hunger strike against the Israeli occupation and its racist policy of oppression, which denies the rights of the prisoners and the rights of our Palestinian people."

Marwan Barghouti – Palestinian terrorist who is serving 5 life sentences for orchestrating three shooting attacks that killed 5 people: one attack in Jerusalem (June 12, 2001) in which Greek monk Tsibouktsakis Germanus was murdered by terrorist Ismail Radaida and another unidentified terrorist, another attack at a gas station in Givat Zeev near Jerusalem (Jan. 15, 2002) in which Yoela Hen, 45, was murdered by terrorists led by Mohammed Matla, and one shooting and stabbing attack at the Sea Food Market restaurant in Tel Aviv (March 5, 2002) in which Eli Dahan, 53, Yosef Habi, 52, and Police Officer Sergeant-Major Salim Barakat, 33, were murdered by terrorist Ibrahim Hasouna.

On Dec. 4, 2016, he was elected to Fatah's Central Committee.
