In the latest nonsensical news to come out of Ramallah, JNS reports that Palestinians are campaigning for a terrorist leader - currently imprisoned for murdering Israelis - to be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize:

Palestinians in Ramallah on Tuesday launched a global campaign to secure the nomination of jailed terrorist leader Marwan Barghouti for the Nobel Peace Prize. Barghouti is currently serving five life sentences in Israel for orchestrating the killing of Israelis in numerous attacks.

Barghouti’s name was initially submitted as a Nobel Peace Prize candidate in March by Adolf Perez Esquivel, an Argentine architect who won the prize in 1980. The Tunisian parliament also recently announced its support for nominating Barghouti.

The Palestinian Commission for Prisoners, the Palestinian Prisoners’ Club, and members of the Palestinian Legislative Council are sponsoring the global campaign for Barghouti’s nomination, which will include rallies and marches throughout the disputed territories and Gaza, in addition to a massive media outreach initiative.
