Concha: NY Times Piece on Convicted Palestinian Murderer’s New Life a Mockery of Journalism | Mediaite: "As the old saying goes, with great power comes great responsibility. And after reading a Sunday front-page piece, “Remaking a Life, After Years in an Israeli Prison” — a gushing, sympathetic (and pathetic) piece on a freed Palestinian murderer named Muqdad Salah — the Times now embarrasses itself in a stratosphere all its own.
Here’s the background on why Mr. Salah was sent to an Israeli prison: In June of 1993, he attacked and viciously murdered Israel Tenenbaum — 72-years-old at the time — by taking a metal rod to the side of his head while he was sleeping in the Israeli beach town of Netanya. Very few deserve a death like this, particularly Mr. Tenenbaum, who also happened to be a Holocaust survivor."
