The New York Times: Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil

October 11, 2011 06:03

It is no secret that the New York Times has become an advocate of the Palestinian cause, attacking Israel on everything from the Mavi Marmara naval intercept to Israel’s so-called settlement policies with ever-increasing vitriol while giving the Arab side a free pass on all but the most outrageous acts.

Unfortunately, this disparate reporting is far from isolated and glaringly reveals the New York Times‘s hypocritical and somewhat detestable dark side.  The following examples represent but a fraction of recent, notable, newsworthy incidents that have gone unreported by the Times.

On September 23, 2011, a senior Fatah Central Committee member, in an interview with Al-Jazeera, made one of the most damning admissions ever by any ranking Fatah member concerning the Palestinian strategy of supplanting the Jewish state in stages.  Referring to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Obama as “scumbags,” Abbas Zaki advocated Israel’s withdrawal to the pre-1967 lines and followed up by stating, “[E]verybody knows that the greater goal [of conquering Israel] cannot be accomplished in one go.”  He further noted that reaching the “greater goal” would be impossible initially, and that revealing it would not be smart: “If we say that we want to wipe Israel out … [c]’mon, it’s too difficult.  It’s not [acceptable] policy to say so.  Don’t say these things to the world,” he warned.  “Keep it to yourself.”

Anti-Semitic propaganda of this nature is routinely spewed forth by the hodgepodge of Middle East rejectionist entities and rarely makes headlines.  We have unfortunately become numb to such lunacy.  But when it comes from the leader of a major NATO member and prospective EU candidate, it is certainly newsworthy and should have at least been given cursory coverage, given the way New York Times columnists like Anthony Shadid and Roger Cohen slavishly fawn over Erdo?an‘s every word.
