ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the views expressed by Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti on different occasions. In the January 15, 2002 issue of the newspaper "Washington Post," Barghouti was quoted as saying that he was neither a terrorist nor a pacifist. He said that he was simply a regular guy from the Palestinian street advocating only what every other oppressed person has advocated--the right to help himself in the absence of help from anywhere else. In an Israeli court session on August 14, 2002, Barghouti said that everyone in this world knew well that he struggles for peace.
