Defiance at Barghouti sentence:
The sentencing by an Israeli court of Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti to five
consecutive life terms provokes a defiant response in many Arabic papers.

Jordan rejects Barghouti's sentences :
Jordan Monday said the five life sentences plus 40 years handed down
by an Israeli court to Fatah leader Marwan Barghouti Sunday are illegal.

Start with freedom for the Palestinians :
For the last three years, Arab youth has been mesmerized by two leaders, the
radical fanatic Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan and the secular democrat Marwan
Barghouti in Palestine. Israel, which has lumped the two together as terrorists,
condemned Barghouti to life imprisonment on Sunday. This will prove not only
morally reprehensible, but also a setback for the struggle between freedom and
fanaticism in the Middle East.
