I have always believed that the New York Times will print anything that is anti-Israel, no matter who wrote it. If Hitler was still alive and rotting in a prison somewhere, I think he’d be a contributor to the NY Times Editorial page.
How can NYT, or anyone, agree with them doing something like this? I didn’t think it was possible to hate the NY Times more than I do, but I found out today that my Well of Hate for them goes pretty deep.
(CNSNews.com) – After a storm of protest, the New York Times on Monday acknowledged it should have informed readers that the author of an op-ed excoriating Israel over the imprisonment of Palestinians was in prison for terrorist murders.
An editor’s note tacked onto the end of the article’s online version conceded that the op-ed had “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.”
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.
This is a long story, but it is really worth reading. Spread the word, folks. I notified Drudge, and I hope he runs with it.
