If you thought CNN reporter Christiane Amanpour couldn’t get any worse, she just did. She clearly supports terrorism over democracy.

So why does @CNN's @CAmanpour describe him as simply a Palestinian "leader" and "activist" in an Israeli jail? pic.twitter.com/6WhSO1wVQ0
Disgraceful CNN Reporter
Can Christiane Amanpour possibly say anything more absurd? This CNN reporter, if you even want to call her that, referred to a convicted Palestinian Arab terrorist as an “activist and leader.” Marwan Barghoutti is responsible for the murders of innocent Israelis. There is no question about that. There is no argument. This is not a matter of opinion. And yet, Amanpour decided that Barghoutti is deserving of a different title besides being a terrorist. She thinks he’s just a leader. She thinks he’s just an activist.
Seriously? How much more obvious can her antisemitism be? How much worse can she be? CNN should really take a stand and dismiss her from their network. This is not a matter of political differences or matters that are grey. A terrorist is a terrorist – that is a black and white issue. If Christiane Amanpour cannot see that, or if she has a difference of opinion, she need a reality check.
