ABSTRACT
In a short but dramatic conversation last month, the Palestinian leader Yassir Arafat told Fadwa Barghouti that her husband, the noted political prisoner Marwan Barghouti, would be freed within 48 hours. The wife of Israel's most prominent Palestinian prisoner, Fadwa had spent months lobbying people on the phone and in person on her husband's behalf. When the deadline came and went, she concluded that Arafat had been mistaken--Marwan Barghouti would remain in jail. Barghouti is on trial for directing the Palestinian uprising in the West Bank and Gaza Strip and having a hand in the killing of at least 26 Israelis. Barghouti is certainly a man of authority, but Israel claims he's used his clout mainly to foment violence. But short of a swap, Barghouti will have to serve out whatever term the judges hand down in August, 2003.
