The New York Post has openly hired a man convicted of Terrorism acts and the deaths of 5 people to write in their Op-Ed column. In his column, Palestinian, Marwan Barghouti, tells about all of the troubles he has had at the hands of Israel, yet neither he himself or the NYP mentions that he has murdered innocent people.
This poor excuse for a newspaper, allows murderers space to moralise about how bad he thinks the Israelis are whilst failing to disclose his 2004 conviction for terrorism. Barghouti’s essay talks about his hunger strike in protest to what is happening in Israel.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
Notably absent from the essay is a denial from Barghouti of the allegations against him. He was convicted in 2004 of orchestrating three separate terrorist attacks in Israel in 2001 and 2002. He was implicated in several other attacks but was acquitted due to a lack of evidence.
Barghouti is reportedly the head of Tanzim, a military offshoot of Fatah, the party founded by Yasser Arafat. He is also reported to be one of the founders of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade, a militant group that operated during the Al-Aqsa Intifada, a Palestinian uprising against the Israeli government which left more than 4,000 Israelis and Palestinians dead between 2000 and 2005.
