Ya'alon calls on gov't not to free Barghouti in Schalit deal

Former IDF chief of General Staff and future Likud MK Moshe Ya'alon on Thursday called on the government not to include Tanzim leader Marwan Barghouti in a prisoner exchange deal for captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit. Ya'alon told the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations that it would be a terrible mistake to set Barghouti free, since he has been convicted of murdering dozens of Jews.
