Abu Bluff asks US to help free Barghouti, Saadat

Earlier this week, I reported that 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen planned to demand the release of murderers Marwan Barghouti and Ahmed Saadat in exchange for an extension of the 'peace talks.' Reuters is now confirming that demand was made.

A Palestinian official said Abbas had written to the United States asking them to bring about the release of ill prisoners, female inmates and minors, as well as Barghouti and two other high-profile leaders - Ahmed Sa'adat and Fouad Al-Shobaki.

"The president renewed his demand during the recent meetings in Washington," said Qadoura Fares, chairman of the Palestinian Prisoner Club, referring to Abbas's trip to Washington this week to discuss the shaky peace process with President Barack Obama.

An Israeli court sentenced Barghouti to five life sentences and 40 years in jail in 2004, finding him guilty of orchestrating ambushes and suicide attacks during the Palestinian Intifada, or uprising, that was raging at the time.
Saadat was the planner and leader of the assassination of Israeli Tourism Minister Rechavam Zeevi HY"D (May God Avenge his blood). Shobaki was the financier of the Karine A weapons ship that convinced then-President George W. Bush to break off all negotiations with Yasser Arafat. Israel has held them since 2006. Before that, they were held in a 'prison' that was monitored by Britain.

The second picture is (left to right) Saadat, Barghouti and their good friend, the child murderer Samir al-Kuntar. Kuntar was released in 2008 in exchange for two black boxes containing the mutilated remains of kidnapped IDF soldiers Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev HY"D (May God Avenge their blood).
