It's a monster threatening humanity. Palestinians have two choices - resist or perish. Stone-throwing is one among other ways. It hardly matches Israel's military might. 

It's used lawlessly against Palestinian civilians. They're attacked viciously on land, at sea and from the air. They're slaughtered in cold blood. They're assaulted for wanting to live free in their own homes, on their on land, in their own country. They're murdered for praying to the wrong God. 

They've endured decades of occupation harshness. Israeli Arabs are denied equal rights. They're treated like fifth column threats. The New York Times calls legitimate resistance "defiance."

Doing so spurns fundamental rights. It's longstanding Times policy. Netanyahu spokesman Mark Regev was quoted saying:

"We are concerned that there are elements in the PA that seem to refuse to jettison the harsh language of confrontation, and try to exploit different incidents to stir up trouble." 

"The only path to Palestinian statehood is through peace and reconciliation with Israel. Extreme confrontational language, incitement to violence, does not serve that end."

The State of Palestine exists. Its creation dates from November 15, 1988. Regev and The Times ignore it. They turn a blind eye to Israel's longstanding intolerance for peace. Palestinians never had a legitimate partner. They don't now.

The Times blames them for Israeli crimes. It equates lawful resistance with terrorism. It legitimizes Israeli airstrikes and incursions. It's dismissive of murder by torture and medical neglect.

West Bank unrest "has been simmering for months," it said. It erupted after Maisara Abu Hamdiyya's death. He was one among thousands of Palestinian political prisoners. Israel killed him by neglect. The Times didn't explain.
