Palestinians Campaign For Convicted Terrorist Barghouti To Receive Nobel Peace Prize

The Jerusalem Post reports: Palestinians in Ramallah have launched a worldwide campaign on Tuesday to nominate jailed Fatah leader Marwan Barghouti for the Nobel Peace Prize – despite his life imprisonment for five terrorist murders.

The campaign is being sponsored by the Palestinian Commission for Prisoners, the Palestinian Prisoners’ Club and members of the Palestinian Legislative Council.

Barghouti’s wife, Fadwa, told reporters that the move to nominate her husband for the prestigious award would draw international attention to the “plight” of some 7,000 Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli prisons.

The campaign will include organizing rallies and marches throughout the West Bank and Gaza Strip in support of the nomination. Organizers said they are also planning a massive campaign in the local and international media to promote the idea of giving Barghouti the Nobel Peace Prize.
