( The Palestinian news agency Ma’an recently conducted an interview on the TV program "In a Prisoner’s Home" with the father of terrorist Abdallah Barghouti, who is serving 67 life sentences for terrorism, in which the father called his son a “hero.”

Barghouti masterminded some of the worst suicide bombings in Israel between 2000 and 2005—attacks that killed 67 Israelis. His father said in the interview that he is “proud” of his son, and called him a “noble fighter.” 

“Abdallah Barghouti, I am proud of him, because everyone knows of Abdallah Barghouti and what he generously did for Palestine. I am proud of him and I say: Praise Allah who gave me this hero, noble fighter for Palestine and its cause. I say: Praise Allah, Lord of the Universes, Abdallah fought for Palestine and left his family, his father and mother, and left behind three children, two girls and a boy, and sacrificed everything for the Palestinian cause,” the father said, Palestinian Media Watch reported Wednesday.

"I ask every Palestinian of noble soul to follow in the footsteps of Abdallah Barghouti for Palestine and Jerusalem,” he added.
