New York Times Publishes Hate Ad


Shame doesn't adequately describe it.

by Stephen Lendman

The Times notoriously provides one-sided Israel/Palestine coverage. Jewish rights and all things Israel matter. Palestinians don't count. 

Times articles, commentaries, and editorials turn a blind eye to egregious violations of international laws, norms and standards. Endorsing wrong over right is policy. 

On April 24, a glaring example was published. The Times shares responsibility with David Horowitz's Freedom Center. With apologies to Alan Jay Lerner, his racist ad could make sailors blush.

It accused the Global Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement of promoting hate. It claimed it supports murdering Jewish children.

College professors were also targeted for "us(ing) literature in classes to attack Israel." They endorse BDS. Their names were listed for added emphasis. The ad called for "publicly sham(ing) and condemn(ing them) for the crimes their hatred incites."

It said:

It's "time for supporters of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS) to ask themselves what they did to contribute to the atmosphere of hate that spawned" the killing of Jews.
 

It invoked the Holocaust. It's always used to claim unique Jewish suffering. Others don't count, especially Palestinians under repressive Israeli military occupation for decades.

"The Holocaust," it said, "began with boycotts of Jewish stores and ended with death camps. The calls for a new Holocaust can be heard throughout the Middle East and Europe as well."

Horowitz is a notorious Islamophobe. Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) top-featured him in its "Dirty Dozen" Islamophobia list. It called him its "premier promoter." He made himself its "chief publicist."

He's also editor and owner of FrontPage Magazine . It features racist hate and Islamophobia. It calls Occupy Wall Street "the Communist movement reborn." It said planned May Day activities include "terrorism." They intend "violent acts (to) disrupt the US economy."

Its Jihad Watch page might make some racists blush. It's that bad. It's Wall of Truth page runs neck and neck. It calls Brandeis University students for Palestine "stormtroopers." It labels supportive Florida Atlantic University ones "blood libels (and) Israel-hating."
