New York Times Blasted for Concealing Palestinian Terrorist’s Murder Convictions | United with Israel: The NYT was slammed by Jewish organizations and leading figures for failing to mention that Marwan Barghouti is a convicted terrorist in his op-ed.
The New York Times came under fire on Monday for publishing an opinion piece by imprisoned Palestinian terrorist Marwan Barghouti without mentioning that he is convicted of multiple murders.
Barghouti, who announced in a Sunday op-ed that he was launching a hunger strike with other Palestinian prisoners in Israel, was described by the Times only as “a Palestinian leader and parliamentarian.”
No mention was made either in the op-ed or by the Times that Barghouti, who sought to portray himself as a political prisoner and a “victim” of the Israeli judicial system, was in fact sentenced to multiple life terms over his central role in several suicide bombings.
