Terrorist Marwan Barghouti has written from his jail cell an appeal for “millions’ of Palestinian Authority Arabs to march in September to show support for a United Nations resolution to declare the PA an independent country based on its own definition of borders.

 

Barghouti, serving five life sentences for planning mass-murder suicide attacks against Jews, is unarguably the most popular figure n the Palestinian Authority, including PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Salam Fayyad.

 

He previously has called for a mass march on Jerusalem, but this week his letter to Arabs was published in full in Palestinian Authority media.

 

Promoting his self-styled image of a terrorist-turned intellectual peace-seeker through “peaceful resistance,” Barghouti called on Arabs to stage a “peaceful million-man march” during the United Nations General Assembly in September.
