    University of San Francisco, a Jesuit school, no less, is presenting a lecture event on June 2, that will feature Aarab Barghouti as the guest speaker. Marwan, his father, is currently serving five life sentences in prison in Israel for specific murders, but bears responsibility for the murders of over 100 men, women and children in terrorist attacks in the Jewish state, some of them U.S. citizens. “Only Israeli propaganda presents him as a terrorist," Aarab, the terrorist murderer's youngest son, is quoted as saying. "Nelson Mandela was also portrayed as a terrorist. He spent 27 years in prison. And...

    “There was one time — this was 20 years ago — when I went into Cedars-Sinai for a four-way bypass,” Mr. Woolery said. “I remember that Bruce and Kris Jenner were the first people in to see me. That’s true! Back when Bruce was Bruce. Anyway, the doctors were just ready to put me under anesthesia, and I suddenly shouted: ‘I’m the only conservative in Southern California. If I die, somebody has to vote for Bob Dole!’”
  • 'Barghouti is not a prisoner'

    Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely (Likud) responded on Monday night to the publication of Marwan Barghouti's article in The New York Times: "Barghouti is not a prisoner," Hotovely said. "He is a convicted murderer and a terrorist. "The New York Times has provided a platform to a terrorist without noting the fact that he planned and carried out the cold blooded murder of Jews simply for having been Jews. "This is not a matter of freedom of speech. It is anarchy. When a major newspaper with a reputation for responsible journalism becomes a platform for murderers, it provides legitimacy for...

    Trevor Loudon wrote an article that each and every one of us should read and take note of: Intifada USA? American Radicals Build Ties to “Palestinian” Revolutionaries. I agree completely with Trevor when he says that 2015 could usher in chaos, unrest and violence as we have not seen in our lifetime. The Communists are now joining hands in America with the Radical Islamists, forming an American Intifada – an uprising, resistance, revolt. They are using racism as the building blocks and their hate for America as the glue to forward massive havoc and violence in our streets. The riots...

    “I have often wondered what Jews or decent people could have done to push back against the anti-Semitic propaganda of 1930s Germany,” says my friend, Dr. Roberta Seid, the historian and scientific advisor of Stand With Us. Seid was describing an event at my alma-mater, UCLA, where the speaker, Omar Barghouti, co-founder of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, was “on the road again with his anti-Israel show and its pack of bigotry and lies.” I wholeheartedly recommend Seid’s opinion piece, “A Speaker who Brings Hate.” It is a must reading for anyone who has never attended an anti-Israel...

Mosab Hassan Yousef is the son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef, a Hamas founder and one of its leaders in the West Bank.

    The Ramallah-based Arab Fatah faction in the Palestinian Authority is openly rejecting the freeing of captive Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit in an exchange deal being negotiated with the Gaza-based Hamas faction, saying the agreement will signal the end of an era in the relationship between Fatah and Israel. As part of the agreement, Israel will free 1,000 Arab prisoners, including 25 convicted murderers in exchange for Shalit. Currently serving five life sentences for the brutal murder of five civilians, Fatah terror mastermind Marwan Barghouti is one of the convicts who is slated for release. If the deal is made, the...

    The Israeli government has informed the Palestinian Authority that it has no objections to the release of jailed Fatah operative Marwan Barghouti, a senior PA official in Ramallah said over the weekend. The official told The Jerusalem Post that Barghouti and several other prominent security prisoners could be released in the coming days or weeks. Barghouti is serving five life sentences for the murders of four Israelis and a Greek monk. But an official in Jerusalem said Saturday night that "the release of Marwan Barghouti is simply not on the table today." The official also said that last week's release...

    An American woman fighting to get back four daughters living in the West Bank with their Palestinian father has gotten unusually high-powered help - from Barack Obama. The U.S. presidential hopeful raised the case of the Chicago-area woman in his meeting with Palestinian leaders last week, and won a promise from Prime Minister Salam Fayyad to look into the matter. And that's how the private battle between Yasser and Colleen Barghouti, which spans continents and cultures, took a public turn. In separate interviews, the two offered conflicting explanations of what brought the family to Barghouti's home village of Kobar in...

    Former defense minister Amir Peretz will begin a campaign after Pessah, which celebrates freedom, to bring about the release of Fatah terrorist Marwan Barghouti. Barghouti was convicted of murder and sentenced to five life sentences in prison for killing Jews and a Christian monk during the second Intifada. But he is also a rising star in Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah and his likely successor. In a speech at a pre-Pessah toast for Labor activists loyal to him, Peretz said that after the holiday, he would visit the families of Barghouti's victims and ask them to publicly press for...

    Releasing Barghouti in Shalit deal would be good for Hamas, and possibly for Israel too Published: 01.07.08, 18:29 / Israel Opinion There is no doubt that Israeli willingness to release Marwan Barghouti could greatly advance a deal that would see the release of abducted IDF soldier Gilad Shalit. Such willingness is a temptation that Hamas would find difficult to resist, and therefore it would be likely to show greater flexibility on its other demands; First of all, because Hamas would be able to prove to the Palestinians that it succeeded where Mahmoud Abbas failed. The Palestinians would see this as...

    Abdelhaleem Ashqar is facing trial in Chicago, accused of funding terrorists, and is under house arrest in Virginia.

Under house arrest at his home in Alexandria, Va., the former Howard University professor said...

During meeting with MK Taleb El-Sana, Barghouti says Israel responsible for kidnappings: Hostage situation wouldn’t have happened if Palestinian, Lebanese prisoners were freed If senior Palestinian security prisoners are not released as part of the prisoner swap deal to free kidnapped Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, more kidnappings will likely ensue, jailed Fatah leader Marwan Barghouti said.

Abbas' Fatah party was trounced by Hamas in elections earlier this year. He said that the new government's diplomatic plan is based on the Prisoners' Document - a paper drawn up this past May by several leading terrorists imprisoned in Israel.
