Reuters whitewashes Barghouti call for new terror war

On Saturday, we noted how Reuters had slyly edited its story on the Arab "Land Day" marches to exonerate Palestinian kingpin terrorist Marwan Barghouti, who is currently serving five life terms and 40 years for masterminding and funding multiple murders in Israel.

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:
"It is the Palestinian people's right to oppose the occupation in all means, and the resistance must be focused on the 1967 territories."
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.

So, how do Ori Lewis and Reuters characterize Barghouti's letter?
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.
Right, "civil resistance".

Nudge nudge; wink wink.
