Knesset Member Ahmed Tibi of the Joint Arab List recently visited terrorist mastermind Marwan Barghouti in the Hadarim prison.

Voice of Israel correspondent Gal Berger reports that Barghouti told Tibi that he supports holding local elections in the PA-controlled territories, and added that these local elections must lead to general parliamentary and presidential elections.

The terrorist leader also said that he "supports diplomatic efforts that will lead to the end of the occupation and the release of prisoners."

Recently, MK Yousef Jabareen also visited Barghouti. It should be noted that despite repeated appeals to the Knesset Speaker and to the Knesset Ethics Committee, no significant sanctions are levied against MKs who visit terrorists in prison.

Marwan Barghouti is responsible for the terror attack at the gas station in Givat Ze'ev, in which Yoela Hen was murdered. The indictment against Barghouti states that the attack was carried out on his direct order, as revenge for the killing of the terrorist Raed Karmi.

Barghouti was also convicted of planning the attack in Ma'aleh Adumim in which a Greek Orthodox priest was murdered. He also was behind the attack in the Seafood Market restaurant, in which three Israelis were murdered.

He also continues to regularly incite to violence against Israel from his prison cell.
