Headlined, "Release Marwan Barghouti," he said:

Barghouti's "regarded as the sole Palestinian leader who enjoys the full trust of Fatah and the Palestinian public, (and) is said to have figured prominently in high-level Israeli consultations (in retaliation against) Abbas for his" UN de jure membership petition.

"The Israeli peace camp" wants him released. Israel so far refuses. 

Bar-Yosef knows him well. He "never denied the right of the Jewish people to a Jewish state." He favored an Islamic Palestinian one, but "expressed contempt for Islamic fundamentalists."

"Above all," he's uncorruptable. While a student, he focused on refugee camp humanitarian needs.

As a Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) member, he strongly opposed Fatah corruption. He's a powerful leader. "He is rightly courted by the Obama administration and many Israelis."

Most Israelis support a two-state solution provided Palestine recognizes Israel as a Jewish state and accepts limited right of return privileges. Abbas can't achieve it. Only Barghouti can and deserves a chance.
