'Palestinian' terrorist vows to continue to fight Israel if released from prison

'Palestinian' bombmaker Abdullah Barghouti, whose name comes up consistently on the short list of terrorists Israel will not release in exchange for kidnapped IDF corporal Gilad Shalit, accused Prime Minister Netanyahu on Sunday of holding up the 'terrorists for Gilad' exchange. Barghouti also vowed that he would continue to fight against Israel if released.
Israel brought Barghouti to court to ask to extend the conditions of his solitary confinement.

Upon arrival, he confidently told reporters, “If there is a deal, I would be set free along with Marwan Barghouti and Ahmad Sa’adat.” Marwan Barghouti and Sa’adat are other ‘high-value’ prisoners convicted of multiple counts of murder.

Barghouti also said, “After my release, I will continue to fight for Palestine, so long as the occupation continues.”

Asked whether Schalit was properly treated by his captors in the Gaza Strip, he said, “As far as I know he is fine. He eats, he drinks, he sleeps. We don't harm our prisoners.”

Responding to a question about Schalit's right to stand trial, Barghouti said, “When we have a state we will also be able to conduct proper trials.”

“The will to fight has nothing to do with Jews themselves, it is only because the Jews conquered our land,” Barghouti continued.
The Shalit family, which is finally starting to understand that the government has done everything it can short of handing over 1000 Israelis to be murdered on the spot (God forbid) in return for Gilad's release, lashed out at Barghouti.
"Hamas and its leaders continue to behave cynically towards their people and they have still not given an answer to the Israeli proposal passed on to the German negotiator three months ago," the family said.


In response to Barghouti's remarks, the Shalit family said: "We are sorry that a Hamas prisoner gets the right to speak to the media when Gilad can't even see the light of day and has no connection to the outside world."

The family also said that Israel's blockade of Gaza, which it said was created by Hamas, hurt only the residents of the coastal territory who had nothing to do with their son or the prisoner swap.

"We are sorry that a Hamas prisoner gets the right to speak to the media when Gilad can't even see the light of day and has no connection to the outside world," the family added.

Barghouti is serving 67 life sentences after being convicted in 2003 of planning terror attacks in which 66 Israelis were murdered and hundreds hurt, including the attack on a Sbarro restaurant in Jerusalem.
Barghouti deserves a slow, painful death. Nothing else.

A big chunk of "Son of Hamas" deals with how Mosab helped the Israelis catch Abdullah Barghouti, and how dangerous and deadly an actor he proved to be.

I hadn't heard of him before reading the book, I find it interesting that so soon after reading it, he pops up in the news.

To be more accurate (I just looked back in the book), he didn't actually catch him, but Abdullah does get significant mention in the book as being one of the deadliest bomb-makers during the Second intifada.

According to the book, Mosab helped the ShinBet trace a call from Abdullah when Abdullah was asked at one point by the PA and Hamas to stop any future plans he had. Those plans included assassination attempts against Shimon Peres and some unnamed "Israeli lawmakers". (The reason for the hits being called off was supposedly pressure by Israel on the PA -- this was pre-Defensive Shield)
