Last week, Barghouti had a letter smuggled out of his prison cell which, as part of a call to end peace negotiations with Israel, proclaimed:
Barghouti also wrote that Israel had been forced to withdraw from Gaza in 2005 due to the “intifada and resistance”, a reference to the Palestinian terror war between 2000 and 2005, which killed more than 1,000 Israelis."It is the Palestinian people's right to oppose the occupation in all means, and the resistance must be focused on the 1967 territories."
So, how do Ori Lewis and Reuters characterize Barghouti's letter?
Right, "civil resistance".JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel has placed a high-profile Palestinian prisoner in solitary confinement for a week after he called from his cell for a new wave of civil resistance, the Prisons Authority said on Monday.
Nudge nudge; wink wink.
