Only three-quarters of a century after Der Stürmer incentivized the mass murder of Jews by dehumanizing them, we must condemn those who hide behind the First Amendment to express anti-Semitic, anti-Muslim, homophobic, sexist or racist views.
The organization that posted the sign hopes ‘Times staff will see it and do some soul-searching about their bigotry of low expectations in not holding Palestinian rulers to the same standard as they do the Jewish state.’
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.
The Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA) was responding to the biased way a piece that appeared in Tuesday’s “newspaper of record” reported on the current wave of terrorism against Israelis.
As Palestinian terrorists work to murder as many Israelis as possible, foreign media outlets work harder to demonstrate their anti-Israel bias and lack of professionalism by describing the terrorists as victims.
Despite the fact that Israel is under attack by Palestinian terrorists, the mainstream media is instead manipulating headlines and stories to whitewash terrorism and garner sympathy for the Palestinian people.
