A New York Times editorial criticized as excessive the 10-year, $38 billion aid agreement signed last week between Israel and the United States. One sign of the anti-Israel bias of the Times is that it uses a different standard to measure military aid to Israel than it uses to measure spending on other things.
The Times’ concern for the plight of the Palestinians is touching, but the editorial fails to explain why that issue should cast a pall over Israel’s diplomatic relations with its neighbors, especially when Israel and its neighbors don’t think it should.
A New York Times video which excised the praise of Um Kamel Taraireh for her son Mohammed, whom she called a 'martyr' and 'hero' after he murdered 13-year-old Hallel Yaffa Ariel, has been corrected after complaints by media watchdog CAMERA.
It’s not clear why the article had to be mainly about the "settlements" at all, rather than simply a feel-good feature about Jews and Arabs working together. The 'Times' unfortunately took the opportunity to fit this one into an existing [and false] narrative about the “occupation.”
That the Times took this opportunity to publish a column blaming Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the lack of peace with the Palestinians cannot be disconnected from Jeffrey Goldberg's recent interview with President Obama.
