ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the views of the author on popular Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti. During the first intifada, which lasted from 1987 until 1993, Barghouti was an optimist. The second intifada, which erupted in September 2000, however, made him realize that blind hope was not enough and that naivete was in fact the enemy of realism. Now Barghouti is in prison, and Palestinians and Israelis are teetering on the edge of another bloodbath. There is little evidence of how ordinary Israelis feel about Barghouti--or, for that matter, about any other Palestinian who could stop the bloodshed.
