Labor minister: Israel must consider freeing Fatah victor Barghouti – Haaretz – Israel News

Minister of Minority Affairs Avishay Braverman has called on the Israeli government to seriously consider releasing from prison Fatah strongman Marwan Barghouti, who won a top post in the Palestinian faction’s elections earlier on Tuesday.

“We must weigh his release with the aim of creating a moderate and strong political leadership among the Palestinians,” Braverman said. “Barghouti can, it appears, supply the goods and strengthen the moderates who support a diplomatic solution and an arrangement with the State of Israel.”
