From his cell in an Israeli prison, Marwan Barghouti, one of the Palestinians' most revered figures called on Monday for a new wave of civil resistance in their decades-long quest for statehood and for severing all ties with Israel.

Marwan Barghouti is a leading figure in the Fatah movement, who was seen as a driving force behind the Palestinians' last intifada launched in late 2000.

"The launch of large-scale popular resistance at this stage serves the cause of our people," Barghouti said in a statement commemorating the tenth year of his imprisonment by Israel.

"Stop marketing the illusion that there is a possibility of ending the occupation and achieving a state through negotiations after this vision has failed miserably," he said in a message read to a crowd of supporters in the West Bank city of Ramallah.
