    I believe the NYT's official position is support for Arab terrorism in Israel.

    Since the exact subject being discussed in this quote was the marriage of Livni's parents, maybe the interviewer was referring to that aspect of the story.

    One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter.

    Same for Zionists as Hamas, really.

    Typically, both sides of a conflict call the other side terrorists. It is just a meaningless name calling thing.

    Which is why they think it is romantic when the Palestinians are terrorists, they think terrorism is romantic.

    Of course! That's why they chose the father of an IDF soldier as their Jerusalem Bureau chief.

    I don't know what you're reading. The first mention of Livni's parents was in the context of them "founding the country," not their marriage. And in answering, Livni herself spends 12 words about the marriage, and 38 words on their activities in a terror group.

    Let me know when the NYT starts referring to Hamas in terms like "romantic" and "freedom fighters."
