MIDEAST ISRAEL PALESTINIANS FATAH

** FILE **Jailed Palestinian uprising leader Marwan Barghouti raises his handcuffed hands as he enters the courtroom for the opening day of his trial at Tel Aviv's District Court, in this photo taken Aug. 14, 2002. Young activists in the ruling Fatah Party have broken off to form their own faction, dealing a bitter blow to Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas ahead of January parliamentary elections and possibly boosting the electoral prospects of Hamas militants. Barghouti, serving five life terms in an Israeli prison for involvement in deadly attacks, has emerged as the most popular Fatah leader in West Bank primary elections. Former West Bank security chief Jibril Rajoub and Gaza strongman Mohammed Dahlan joined Barghouti in his new party, Fatah leaders said, adding weight to the list. (AP Photo/Brennan Linsley)
