My Mideast Punchlines: Barghouti is no cutey….and this is personal

Following the New York Times‘s erasure of Marwan Barghouti’s terrorist background, The Times of London also engages in sanitising a terrorist in its story on a Palestinian prisoners hunger strike.

The headline describes Barghouti thus: Palestinian Activist Leads Prisoners in Hunger Strike

And, according to the Times:

Barghouti was not sentenced solely for organizing a March 2002 attack on a restaurant, in which three people were murdered. The court also found Barghouti responsible for a June 2001 attack in Maale Adumim, in which a Greek monk was murdered, a January 2002 terror attack on a gas station in Givat Ze’ev, and a car bomb attack in Jerusalem. In addition, he was also convicted of a charge of attempted murder, membership in a terror organisation and conspiring to commit a crime.

Now, I must confess to having a particular interest in murderer Barghouti being made to rot in prison for the rest of his miserable life. That Tel Aviv restaurant attack above: Well, my nephew and his wife were there. They dived under their table and were lucky to survive. No, The Times and the NY Times, Marwan Barghouti is certainly no cutey. He deserves neither approbation nor sanitation. Execution, though, might be a splendid idea.

  1. So happy to know your family is safe.

    For the first time, we here in the States understand the fear of terrorism. God help us all.
    Much, much love to you and yours!❤️
