OUTRAGE: Bush, Condi, U.S. Pressure Israel to Free Mass Murderer Terrorist

As I wrote earlier today and repeatedly since 9/11, President Bush said, “You’re either on our side or the terrorists’ side.” And he’s shown us in spades on whose side he is. Bush and his Secretary of State Condi Clueless have repeatedly pressured Israel to free convicted mass-murderer terrorist, Marwan Barghouti a/k/a “fighter brother Abu al Kassam,” responsible in murder of almost 40 innocent civilians, including a Greek Orthodox Monk. And it appears they have succeeded. Maybe Israel should pressure America to free Zacarias Moussaoui. After all, what’s good for the goose . . . .
From today’s Wall Street Journal:

Rhymes-With-Witch Clueless Condi

Demands Israel Release Mass-Murderer Terrorist, Marwan Barghouti

SPECULATION RISES that Israel may release Fatah leader Barghouti as Rice prepares for Middle East trip. Some Israeli and U.S. officials believe the move could help strengthen the hand of the embattled Fatah government on the West Bank against the rising popularity of Hamas. New Mideast envoy Tony Blair will join Rice in mid-July amid mounting skepticism about U.S. strategy to isolate Hamas in its Gaza power base.

Here are some brief details about Marwan Barghouti, the man Bush and Condoleeza Rice are championing and the the man whom the Palestinian people consider their leader:
A Tel Aviv judge convicted former Fatah-Tanzim militia commander Marwan Barghouti, 43, on May 20, 2004, of murder for his involvement three terrorist attacks in Israel that killed five people. He was acquitted for 33 other murders due to lack of evidence of his direct involvement in those crimes.
Barghouti was also convicted of a charge of attempted murder, membership in a terror organization and conspiring to commit a crime. The prosecution was seeking to sentence him to five consecutive life terms. The court said in its verdict that “Barghouti was responsible for providing the field units with money and arms . . . .” The judges said that the attacks were sometimes “based on instructions” from Yasser Arafat.
The court found Barghouti responsible for a June 2001 attack in Maale Adumim, in which a Greek monk was murdered, a January 2002 terror attack on a gas station in Givat Zeev, a March 2002 attack at Tel Aviv’s Seafood Market restaurant, in which three people were murdered, and a car bomb attack in Jerusalem. . . .
On June 6, 2004, Barghouti was sentenced to five consecutive life terms and 40 years.
More on Barghouti:

The Al Aqsa Brigades [Islamic terrorist group], headed by Arafat, was put under the direct authority of Marwan Barghouti, who had no compunction in using women and even children to execute terrorist activity, which killed hundreds of Israelis.
Arafat and his men used the funds donated to them by other countries, including the European Union, to finance terrorist activity. . . .
Of significance in this connection are the words of a senior Fatah/Tanzim activist from Jenin refugee camp, Abd Al Karim Aweis, who directed mass murder attacks inside Israel and was arrested by the IDF on 30 March, that as a General Intelligence Apparatus activist in the PA, he felt a need to act and encourage others to act in the “spirit of the words” of Arafat and Marwan Barghouti.

Here is the text of one of the many notes Marwan Barghouti sent to of Arafat to orchestrate the funding of “martyr” terrorists, all of whom perpetrated lethal attacks (other notes of his were on behalf of Arafat to the Palestinian treasury, asking for payments to specifically-named “martyrs”):

To Brother President Abu Amar [DS: Arafat’s Nom de Guerre (war name)], may the Lord protect him,
I request of you to order the allocation of a thousand dollars for each of the fighter brethren.
Marwan Al Barghouti

Often Barghouti signed:

The Supreme Movement Committee
The brother Marwan Barghouti

One of several notes written to Barghouti by terrorist factions:

In the Name of the All-merciful Allah
“Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades”
(Fatah emblem)
The Palestinian National Liberation Movement “Fatah”
To The fighting brother Marwan Barghouti, secretary of the Fatah movement
We, in the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, Southern Area, request of you to cooperate with the brother carrying this letter, since we have requested him to establish a communications channel between us and yourself, so that we can handle several complicated problems that arose in our sector of the struggle, at this stage of our national struggle.
Together on the path towards an independent state with Jerusalem as its capital.
Your sons,
In the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades – Southern Area
(a stamp of “the Palestinian National Liberation Movement – Fatah” and “Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades”)

And, yet, this is the man Bush and Rice want Israel to release as a sign of goodwill to the “good terrorists” in Fatah on the “West Bank” in preparation for Condi Clueless’ and Tony Blair’s visit. GUH-REAT.
And you wonder why we are losing the war to the terrorists, all over the world.

No, I don’t wonder why we’re losing. This is so disgusting, and Israel is going down the chute seemingly without a fight against their liberal self-defeating Govt. It is painfully obvious to me that Bush knows what he is doing is indefensible, so he doesn’t even try to explain things any more. The PR war against our troops in Iraq is met with abject silence from Bush and flatline responses from Snow. Condaleeza Rice is a tool of the State Dept. just like Colin Powell before her. They hate Israel and love the A-rabs. I think they truly want to lose the war (any war for that matter) so that we can finally be just “one of the guys” – no longer the Leader of the Free World because there is no longer any free world. Without a strong America, where will these idiots want to live? Where will they go? What is the End Game in all of this?

Pres Bush has never been consistent in the GWOT. Your post mentions Arafat, who was at the top of a known terrorist organization. Yet, he was allowed to die a peaceful death in his sleep.
This is why we have not, and will not, be succesful in GWOT. Pres Bush says one thing, giving red-meat to his supporters, and then does not follow through.
Sen Edwards may have garbled what he wanted to say, and the press continues to garble the message, but Pres Bush is fighting the GWOT using bumper stickers.
– With us or against us –
– Support the Troops –
– Fight them over there, not here –
– Don’t cut and run –
– A failed Iraq, is a dangerous Iraq –
– A Democratic Peaceful Middle East –
– They want to take away our way of life –
– Pakistan is our ally on GWOT –
– The smoking gun could be a mushroom cloud? –
– The only good terrorist, is a dead terrorist –
Well, actually the last one is mine. Great Bumper Stickers all.
Pres Bush has continued to provide lip service to the GWOT. Several of the 19 perpertraitors of 9/11 had visas. Do we have a system (people, computers, holding cells), up and running, that can track down visa violators yet? Nope.
I remain cynical and skeptical of anything Pres Bush (and his Administration) says, or does, with regard to the GWOT.

As bad as Bush and Condi are I blame the Israeli government just as much. Stop screwing around, take the kid gloves off and deal with the terriosts forcefully and decisively. Anyone can ask anything they want it’s up to Israel to say NO! Just say no Israel, just say Nooooooo!

Earth to Debbie & the dittoheads—Remember what family was flying on a Bush plane out of her September 12th, almost 6 years ago???
And didn’t bank robber Brother Neil PRINT jihadist literature in Saudi Arabia a few years back?
Fortunately, either New Yorker looking to take up residence @ 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue are not in bed with Al Qaeda…and let’s not forget that besides CATCHING his terrorists, Bill Clinton WON a war too.

Aside from the blatantly obvious fact that allmost ALL world leaders are down on their knees kissing Islamofacist a$$, the only real solution, in my humble opinion, is for us, the Western Culture “Great Satan” to sooner or later do what no one else seems to have the guts or desire to do…namely take out ANY and ALl who support terrorism in any way, shape or form. As has been mentioned in some other websites (both centrist and rightist) if the “Jihadists” want to live in their version of Islam, circa 7th century, then we can oblige them by nuking their whole civilization.

Eric Hoffer knew this and wrote about it in his book, The True Believer back in 1951. I don’t think anyone listened to him either.

The Israeli people need to have their asses kicked for allowing their spineless government to even remotely consider releasing a mass murderer to show “good faith” to their enemies!!!
Where have all of the leaders with a backbone gone?
Our governments have mixed and poured the kool-aid. Now they are trying to force us into drinking a large glass of the stuff.
I’m of the belief that our President has blown a gasket. He is not the same man that stood at the Twin Towers and using a bullhorn put our enemies on notice!!
I’m so worried for our Nation and all of the hard working wonderful people that live here. I worry for the children and for the grandchildren.

Sioux, that’s a beautiful summary of what’s going on. Here’s a picture of Hughes, Townsend, and Bolton watching Bush help deliver the West to the RoP (all give good odds that closet Muslim Grover Norquist had something to do with this).
Bush has fully embraced James “Fuck the Jews” Baker and his cronies Scowcroft and Rice (who dosen’t have an independent thought in her pretty little head).
For Baker and Co., Israel (ie, the Jews) are the source of every problem in the Middle East and beyond. It has nothing to do with the core tenets of Islam and the example of you-know-who.

We need Russia on our side so we can do more in the Middle East. We need Russia, Bush is an idiot and a boy scout.

Wolfdog, I’m with you. No nukes, though, just bomb the haj when they’re circling that stupid thing. They’ll flip, but ultimately they understand force. That’ll mean we have to start TAKING the oil we need, and that’ll mean we need Europe and Russia with us. Then, we can tell China to get lost, and declare war on every muslim on Earth! Then we consolidate the Northern Hemisphere north of say, 40 degrees, for Whites. It’s so simple.
