A Letter to the Times…

I somehow missed this back when it happened.  Last December, the New York Times offered Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu an “op-ed” for the prestigious pages of the “Newspaper of Record”.  Through press aide Ron Dermer, Netanyahu declined the offer, stating the reasons in the letter below.

There was no US media coverage of the exchange, at the time or since.  But there should have been.   The Israeli letter exposes the open anti-Israel bias of the NY Times for all to see.

It comes to light now because of a recent particularly ugly bit of anti-Zionist anti-Semitism in the NYT.  Barry Rubin at Pajamas Media points out an article lionizing imprisoned Palestinian terrorists for their heroic hunger strike – without mentioning the murderous crimes that got the into prison.

Anyway, here is the letter

“Dear Sasha, [presumably Op-Ed Page Editor Sasha Polakow-Suransky]

“I received your email requesting that Prime Minister Netanyahu submit an op-ed to the New York Times.  Unfortunately, we must respectfully decline.

“On matters relating to Israel, the op-ed page of the “paper of record” has failed to heed the late Senator Moynihan’s admonition that everyone is entitled to their own opinion but that no one is entitled to their own facts. Continue reading ‘A Letter to the Times…’

And now, a little Mideast humor

It is rare enough to find something truly funny in the present Middle East.  Most such humor is macabre-funny at best.  (Rather like the underground jokes that used to emerge from the old Soviet Union.)

Anyway, this is from the comediam Adam Carolla, via Pajamas Media contributor Kathie Shaidle:

“Carolla compared Israel  to the college roommate who just wants to study but shares a house with five berserk meth-heads.”

As the Cable Guy says, I don’t care who you are, that’s funny.”

You Gotta See This

Are you familiar with the Pajamas Media website? If not, you should take a look.  Their coverage of a wide range of issues is  often provocative but (and?) always interesting and fact-based.

An outstanding post specific to the Israel-Palestinian issue is currently running there.  “Darkness In Palestine”, is a poignant and troubling on-the-ground look at the West Bank town of Hebron.  The author, Michael J. Totten, describes the reality of the Jewish settlers’ life in some of the most hostile areas outside the “pre-1967 borders” that our president is so insistent on.  He reveals the history of Arab anti-Semitism and “ethnic cleansing” (i.e., genocide) which have produced the nearly “Jew-free” areas in the West Bank.  He exposes the real meaning of opposition to the settlements; the Jewish settlements are hated because Jews are hated.
