Chairman of the Arab Joint List MK Ayman Odeh visited Palestinian Arab arch-terrorist Marwan Barghouti on Thursday, ostensibly to discuss politics.
Barghouti is currently serving five life sentences in Israeli prison for his role in planning suicide terror attacks, and is widely believed to have masterminded the second intifada which claimed thousands of Israeli lives from 2000 to 2005. He has continued inciting terrorism from his jail cell.
"I met with Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti, who is sitting for 12 consecutive years in jail, and before that was imprisoned for ten years," Odeh wrote on Facebook.
"The meeting was exciting: we exchanged impressions and experiences, and the conversation with the leader included talk about political positions."
Odeh compared Barghouti to South African peace leader Nelson Mandela, who led the state to dismantle the regime of racial segregation – perpetuating the common misconception that Israel practices "apartheid."
"The time will come when we, together with Marwan, will walk the streets of ancient Jerusalem, liberated from the Occupation," he concluded.
