Labor MK Eitan Cabel called on Wednesday for the release of jailed Tanzim leader Marwam Barghouti. "Although I have said this many times before, behind closed doors and during private conversations, it's time for Israel to do this act," Cabel said during a speech in the Knesset Plenum. "I am not trying to clear this man of everything he's done," Cabel continued. "But let me use the well-known clich : 'Peace is made with enemies.' [Barghouti], it seems, has, more than the others, the ability, power, and courage to push this long-awaited change."
