Marwan Barghouti is a Palestinian political figure regarded as a leader of the First and Second Intifadas. Barghouti was arrested in 2002 and accused of directing numerous attacks and suicide bombings against civilians. Israeli authorities accused him of murder of Israeli civilians and attacks on Israeli soldiers. He was tried and convicted on charges of murder, and sentenced to five life sentences.

According to Palestinian news outlets, Barack Obama suggested Israel release Palestinian killer Barghouti.
Israel Matsav reported:

Palestinian media are reporting based on Israeli sources (not reported yet in any Israeli media that I have seen) that the United States has ‘suggested’ to Israel that it release convicted terrorist Marwan Barghouti (one of the ‘heavy’ terrorists that Israel refused to release in the ‘terrorists for Gilad’ deal) from jail so that Barghouti can compete in the ‘Palestinian elections’ against Hamas (link in Arabic). Barghouti is serving multiple life sentences for murder.

And, it goes without saying, The New York Times also thinks Barghouti should be released.

  1. Disgusting. Obama’s hatred of Israel once again shows itself

  2. They should release him. One finger at a time, one leg at a time, one arm at a time. . .

  3. It only makes sense that Obama recommend that Israel ignore their rule of law when he constantly ignores the rule of law here in the United States. He is a damn disgrace.

  4. what good is serving multiple life sentences….kill the SOB…or better yet implant him with a bomb up his A$$…then release him then blow up a bunch…that would be great to see

  5. Sure, he can be released. After the Hamas Covenant is repudiated.

    If Israel releases this murderer without recognition from the Palestinians that their founding document is immoral, the Islamists will take the action as a sign of weakness, will loudly celebrate the weakness of their enemy, and will redouble their attacks. They have a consistent pattern of both speech and action on this point.

  6. Israel should show their humanity and release him…. after the perfunctory lobotomy of course.

  7. About 15 years ago the late Coral Ridge Ministries pastor D. James Kennedy wrote “What If Jesus Had Never Been Born?”

    Looking at Gaza, the PA specifically and other islamic societies generally, Kennedy has his answer.

  8. What #2 said….

  9. Anyone surprised?

    Imagine a situation, just any situation that requires a response. Now, imagine the most logical reaction or answer to that situation. King Obigears will take the exact opposite position. He will unfailingly proffer the most unreasonable and the most dangerous (to the US and its allies) solution. It’s uncanny. . . almost.

  10. Send him back in a bodybag.

  11. How bad does it have to get when a majority of people feel the need to kick out a sitting President because of his actions…..This @ssclown at the head of this beast does not represent this great nation………. Nothing else could kick our @ss (Cold War, etc.) but we seemed to have let a monster from within tear at the very soul and cloth of this great nation…….

  12. i’m all in favor of releasing him…

    through the trap door of a scaffold, with a rope around his neck.

    out the back door of a C-130 10,000 feet over Gaza for his HANO qualification jump is also a valid option.

  13. Obama/Holder were behind the release of Libyan terrorist pan am bomber Al Megrahi…he will pardon Kalid Shiek Mohammed on his last day out the door.

  14. Arab Spring From Jail.

  15. Any agreement with the Palestinian’s isn’t worth the paper its written on.

  16. Obama’s finest moment. Sounds like Ron Paul foreign policy.

  17. It is simply like being in a bad dream. I simply can’t wrap my mind around having anyone like Barak Obama as President of the United States.
    I pray that we soon have our country back into the hands of real Americans.

  18. Harvest on THAT ONE for Odrama Queen and Cohorts ought to be plenty rich.

    Romans 1:28. And so, since they did not see fit to acknowledge God or approve of Him or consider Him worth the knowing, God gave them over to a base and condemned mind to do things not proper or decent but loathsome,
    29. Until they were filled (permeated and saturated) with every kind of unrighteousness, iniquity, grasping and covetous greed, and malice. [They were] full of envy and jealousy, murder, strife, deceit and treachery, ill will and cruel ways. [They were] secret backbiters and gossipers,
    30. Slanderers, hateful to and hating God, full of insolence, arrogance, [and] boasting; inventors of new forms of evil, disobedient and undutiful to parents.
    31. [They were] without understanding, conscienceless and faithless, heartless and loveless [and] merciless.
    32. Though they are fully aware of God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them themselves but approve and applaud others who practice them.
