Several alarming candidates, including Marwan Barghouti and a terror chief known as "Hitler," have announced their candidacy for the upcoming PA elections.
Many terrorists currently serving time in Israeli prisons will be permitted by the PA to run in the PA parliamentary elections. According to Israel Radio, convicted Fatah terrorist Marwan Barghouti will be running for a seat in the PA parliament.
Another terrorist wanted Al-Aqsa Brigade chief Jamal Abu Roub – who goes by the nickname "Hitler" – is running in the elections as well.
"Hitler" appeared in an interview with Fox News reporter Jeniffer Griffin, saying he expects to win a seat because he gives his people "dignity and safety." Abu Roub publicly executed an Arab accused to helping Israel in front of the citizens of the Arab town of Qabatieh, in broad daylight. He has been running from Israeli security forces, but appeared in public to campaign, together with the Fox News reporter, assuming Israeli forces would not apprehend him while he spoke with a western reporter.
Asked whether he thought the nickname "Hitler" would affect his election chances, Roub said, "I got this name because of my personality. I am a guy that has a strong personality and uses violence, if needed, to respond."
The London-based Al Quds al-Arabi newspaper reports that Abu Mazen has gotten the Hamas terror group to agree to a postponement of the PA elections, originally scheduled for mid-July.
Hamas had previously demanded that the elections be held on time. Now, Hamas spokesman Mohammed Ghazal said the terror group has been promised that an amendment to the electoral system will be made that would favor the election of its members.
