The New York Times allowed a CONVICTED TERRORIST to write an article for them. The Palestinian writer Marwan Barghouti killed five Israelis. But he led a protest while in prison for better prison conditions. Liberals thought this killer’s protest for a more comfortable prison was inspiring.
Shmuel Landau’s 17-year-old son Ronen Lanndau was killed near Jerusalem in an attack carried out by Barghouti. “I would show the [NYT editors] pictures of my late son, who can no longer speak out. Terrorists went out and murdered children on the orders of a so-called ‘political leader’. This is what happens when you present him as a ‘freedom fighter,’” said Landau.
“He should not be given any concessions whatsoever. He is a terrorist leader. He is a murderer, but he acts as if he’s the head of a workers’ union. I don’t think he needs any leniency,” Landau said,
“I have nothing to say to [the New York Times]. Those who killed my wife will never be free,” said Shlomo Chen whose wife was murdered by the New York Times writer.
After receiving numerous complaints about publishing such a horrible article, the New York Times added a small editors note towards the bottom of the article. “Editors’ Note: April 17, 2017. This article explained the writer’s prison sentence but neglected to provide sufficient context by stating the offenses of which he was convicted. They were five counts of murder and membership in a terrorist organization. Mr. Barghouti declined to offer a defense at his trial and refused to recognize the Israeli court’s jurisdiction and legitimacy,” they wrote.
