In one sense it's academic, as others have listed the string of Israeli terrorists who became Prime Minister. Many more enjoyed high office and financial reward, when they should have been locked up for life and the key thrown away. But I read the charge sheets again just now. Unless I am missing something, he was not charged with murder at all. His 'crime' was to be the quartermaster who supplied the weapons and the commander who defined the targets. On that basis, we could have locked up all the brave resistance commanders in Norway, France, Holland, Greece and Poland who fought the Nazi occupation. That would of course have been unthinkable, they had right on their side, legally and morally. Resistance to an occupying power is, in a democracy, a sine qua non. Albeit targeting civilians can never be condoned, any more than the Israeli terrorists' bombing of the King David hotel. Barghouti's trial was a complete aberration and affront to justice.
