Barghouti Is Intentionally Lying

(Ynet News) Ben-Dror Yemini - We used to be friends. For me, Marwan Barghouti represented the new generation of realistic Palestinians. In the 1990s, he genuinely supported the peace process. Later, things changed. On Sunday, the New York Times published an opinion piece by Barghouti, in which he complained about the Israeli occupation. Both Barghouti and the Times know that in 1999 Israel offered the Palestinians both a state and a divided Jerusalem. Nevertheless, they responded with terror - and Barghouti was one of the leaders of this response. Barghouti is not in prison because he fought for freedom and liberation. Barghouti turned to terror to fight Israel's existence as the Jewish people's national home. Barghouti is deliberately lying about the "ill-treatment of Palestinian prisoners" and the Times is knowingly publishing a lie: I doubt there are any other terrorists in the world with such amazing conditions as those received by the terrorists jailed in Israel's prisons. The Guantanamo Bay detainees don't even dream of such conditions, and neither do terrorists jailed in France's prisons. Barghouti is a terrorist who was convicted of a series of acts of murder by an Israeli civil court. Would the Times publish a similar op-ed by a Taliban terrorist who murdered American civilians? Or perhaps an op-ed by a Guantanamo Bay detainee?
