ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Marwan Barghouti, the jailed Palestinian and his prospects to be nominated for the post of Palestinian President. Everyone wanted to know was this: would Barghouti run for president of the Palestinian Authority from prison? Barghouti's decision could roil the already shaky politics of the West Bank and Gaza. The fear among some analysts is that a successful Barghouti campaign would create a permanent limbo. During a two-year trial that ended earlier this year, he insisted he was nothing more than a Fatah political leader. But Israeli judges convicted him of heading Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, the faction's militia in the West Bank and Gaza, and plotting the murder of at least four Israelis and a Greek monk.
