    Having a strong, charismatic and unifying leader is the last thing Israel wants for the Palestinians. Mr Burston line of thought would make sense if Israel did want peace and two separate states, but over time it has become clear enough that the opposite is the truth, instead. They don't want peace with the palestinians, they don't want a Palestinian state. They want to finish the job they started in 1948 and finally ethnic-clease the whole land West of the Jordan. If the world wants to see the Palestinian Mandela free, there is only one way to achieve this: like the world made Apartheid South Africa free Nelson Mandela: through enormous international pressure on the rogue regime and far-reaching sanctions against it. Israel will never do it by its own good will. And for those who hypocritically call Barghouti a murderer (forgeting the atrocious crimes of their own leaders): have in mind that Mandela was the leader of the MK, the armed wing of the ANC (South Africa's Fatah's Tanzim).
