This piece of human garbage is being held in an Israeli prison for the murder of five people in terrorist attacks. The NYT recently published his op-ed opinion piece, omitting the fact that he was a murderer.
Isn’t it interesting how he orders everyone else to go on a hunger strike, while he enjoys a candy bar? He also sent other people out on suicide missions, but he never put on a suicide belt to carry out his own plans.
….Surveillance video released by the Israel Prison Service Sunday purportedly shows Marwan Barghouti, a convicted terrorist viewed by some as a prospective future president, eating what looks like a candy bar in a bathroom stall in his cell in Kishon prison in northern Israel.
A committee set up in support of the hunger strike on Sunday dismissed the footage as part of a “war of lies” aimed at discrediting the prisoners, and claimed the clips dated back to at least 2004, the Palestinian news agency Ma’an reported.
The Israel Prison Service, however, says the footage was filmed on April 27 this year and again eight days later, on May 5. On April 17, Barghouti and hundreds of other Palestinians serving prison terms in Israeli jails had launched what they call the “Freedom and Dignity” hunger strike to demand changes to their conditions.
In a New York Times op-ed published the day after it began, Barghouti wrote that the campaign aimed to end “abuses” which he claimed include torture, degrading treatment and medical negligence.
(The Times came under fire for not informing readers that the op-ed writer was serving five consecutive life sentences for the murder of five people in terror attacks. It subsequently acknowledged that it should have done so. Barghouti was convicted in 2004.)….
