Palestinian News: Obama Wants Israel to Release Killer Barghouti

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.

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

  • Adirondack Patriot

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

  • Swifty

    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.


    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

  • valerie

    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.

  • smmtheory

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

  • Remco Kimber

    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.

    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.

  • jhump

    Send him back in a bodybag.

  • HadEnough

    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…….

  • 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.

  • donh

    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.

  • USMC Thomas

    Arab Spring From Jail.

  • USMC Thomas

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

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

  • Nanna

    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.

    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.

    Judgment to lead… into making the world a terrorist-infested wasteland.

  • Joe

    “Give us Barabas!”

  • Path

    Yes, Joe you are so right about ‘give us Barabas”

    I say the only conditions under which they should release him/them is if they agree to take Obama and the Mrs. in exchange and keep them under wraps for about the next 50 years.

  • eaglewingz08

    So when is Obama going to release Pollard espwcially since Pollard doesnt have blood on his soul like that pfakistinian fiend.

    Obama Wants Israel to Release Killer Barghouti

    One word to Israel: Don’t.

    Just hang on for another twelve months or so. Even if by some fluke he manages to stay in office, he should be neutered enough that he’ll be limited in the amount of further damage that he can do.

    This should also be a wake-up call to grass-roots conservatives to pitch in to try to get more Tea Party types into Congress where possible, to replace the entrenched pols that share the responsibility for our current predicament.
