Barghouti calls for new intifada

'Palestinian' terrorist and mass murderer Marwan Barghouti has called for a new intifada.
"The launch of large-scale popular resistance at this stage serves the cause of our people," Barghouti said in a statement commemorating the tenth year of his imprisonment by Israel.

"Stop marketing the illusion that there is a possibility of ending the occupation and achieving a state through negotiations after this vision has failed miserably," he said in a message read to a crowd of supporters in the West Bank city of Ramallah.

Despite his multiple life sentences on charges of orchestrating lethal attacks and suicide bombings, Barghouti is viewed as a potential successor to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who is also Fatah's leader.

The call to action comes at a combustible period in the West Bank as economic malaise, moribund diplomacy, and simmering popular discontent bode ill for any peaceful breakthroughs.
Economic malaise? Simmering popular discontent with what? Abu Mazen's continued hold on power?

Oh, wait. This is Reuters, Anny connection to truth is sheer coincidence. But aren't you glad Barghouti is still in jail? Too bad 1,027 of his buddies were let go.
