NYT Concedes It Should Have Mentioned That Palestinian Op-Ed Writer Is Convicted Killer

A Passover message from the NYT: We support terrorists. We don’t support Israel. 

“Marwan Barghouti, who is serving five consecutive life sentences for the murder of five people in terror attacks, wrote the op-ed published Sunday to explain a decision by some 1,000 Palestinian prisoners in Israel to begin a hunger strike….

Barghouti, 57, referred to experiences in Israeli jails, beginning when he was a teenager, but made no reference to the trial and conviction that led to his incarceration today. Instead he portrayed himself as “pursuing this struggle for freedom along with thousands of prisoners, millions of Palestinians and the support of so many around the world.”

The New York Times initially informed readers only that “Marwan Barghouti is a Palestinian leader and parliamentarian.”

Reaction from Israelis was quick in coming.

“Marwan Barghouti is a terrorist and a cold-blooded murderer,””
