(Ha'aretz)Arnon Regular - "Marwan Barghouti has rescinded his membership in Fatah by his decision to pose as an independent candidate, and the Fatah institutions will stick by the candidacy of Abu Mazen," said Al-Tayeb Abd al-Rahim, director of the Palestinian President's Office and a member of the Fatah Central Committee, on Wednesday. Broad segments of the Palestinian political community, most of the armed groups belonging to the Al-Aqsa Martyr's Brigades, and many of the security prisoners in Israeli jails have distanced themselves during the past 24 hours from Barghouti. Others described it as an "Israeli maneuver" aimed to divide Fatah.
