Free Palestinain political Prisoner Marwan Barghouti

Although Israel accuses Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti of being a terrorist he is widely viewed as a political prisoner, a Palestinian Nelson Mandela. His arrest was illegal under international law and agreements, the court that tried him had no jurisdiction, and the charges of terrorism are flimsy at best. Not only would freeing Barghouti be a just course of action, it would also help to boost the beleaguered government of Palestinian President Abbas and improve Israel's image across the world.
