A Barghouthi candidacy certainly would be good for invigorating the liberation struggle. It is difficult to see the Israeli Government releasing him to campaign or govern, or if released, allowing him to live long before being assasinated.

This seemed to be an important news story -- Barghouthi is the only candidate who can be said to be really identified by Palestinians with the struggle history of the PLO rather than with the dream of creating a state, rather than a penitentiary, by negotiations and diplomacy alone. Has never been done. Will never be done.
