Proof that some Palestinians have no interest in living in peace with Israel


The militant Palestinian group Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades said it is opposed to Mahmud Abbas being elected president of the Palestinian Authority to replace Yasser Arafat and would instead back jailed West Bank Fatah leader Marwan Barghuti.


A poll conducted last month said Barghuti was the second most popular choice for Palestinian Authority president behind Arafat, who died last Thursday in a Paris hospital.


In June, Barghuti was sentenced by an Israeli to five life terms for murder. He denied all charges.
This is bizaar reporting. What responsible journalist would wait until the last paragraph to disclose that the Palestinians want a convicted murder as their new President? If the reporter and the Palestinians believe that murdering Jews is not an impediment to office how would they expect the murder to be able to reach an agreement with a Jewish state? This is just stupidity on stilts.
