Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - Apr. 16, 2018

 
Headline: “Marking the 16th anniversary of Fatah Central Committee member Marwan Barghouti’s arrest in Ramallah”
      “The popular campaign to release leader Marwan Barghouti (i.e., terrorist who orchestrated three shooting attacks in which 5 were murdered) and the rest of the prisoners sitting in the occupation’s prison marked the 16th anniversary of Fatah Central Committee member Marwan Barghouti’s arrest yesterday [April 15, 2018] at a rally held at the Palace of Culture in Ramallah, with the participation of hundreds of members of our people.
Fatah Movement Deputy General Leader (i.e., Deputy Chairman) and [Fatah] Central Committee member Mahmoud Al-Aloul blessed prisoner Marwan Barghouti. He noted: ‘On the anniversary of Fatah Central Committee member Marwan Barghouti’s kidnapping, (i.e., terrorist who was arrested and imprisoned for orchestrating attacks in which 5 were murdered) we salute him and all the prisoners of freedom for their day – Prisoner’s Day that will take place in two days – since they are a symbol of our pride, and they are in the hearts of all our people.’ …
He added: ‘The anniversary of Marwan Barghouti’s kidnapping takes place at the same time as the anniversary of the death as a Martyr (Shahid) of leader Khalil Al-Wazir ‘Abu Jihad’ (i.e., terrorist, responsible for murder of 125)… Khalil Al-Wazir was and will remain our example and a role model. The anniversary of leader Barghouti’s kidnapping takes place at the same time as Palestinian Prisoner’s Day, and they are the group that has sacrificed that which is more precious than life – freedom.’ …
He emphasized that the leadership opposes all of the external pressures concerning the prisoners, which [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas emphasized: ‘If we will only be left with a few Dirhams (i.e., a currency in some Arab states), we will allocate them to the families of the prisoners as a sign of appreciation for their sacrifice.’ Al-Aloul said: ‘President Abbas will continue to adhere to our people’s principles, and when talking about Jerusalem and the state, there is no room for flexibility as this is Jerusalem for which no one can make a concession… and therefore we see that there is a firm stance facing this American attack on Jerusalem and the members of our people.’
He emphasized: ‘Our main enemy is the Israeli occupation and the American policy that supports it, and therefore we must be careful and unified in order to deal with these great challenges, and this is by arranging our internal matters in a precise manner, as leader Barghouti noted in his message to us today.’”
