For decades, Times articles, op-eds, and commentaries spurned Palestinian rights in deference to Israel. Reporting nearly always is one-sided. Media scoundrels institutionalized it. 

Levy's outrageous recommendations prompted The Times response. It reflects support for Israel. It's concerned only about what harms its status and US imperial interests. 

Those issues aside, Palestinian rights be damned.

Haaretz also fell short. It expressed concern about legitimizing illegal outposts. Doing so it said effectively annexes the Territories to Israel.

The Times and Haaretz missed the key point. Israel's entire occupation of Gaza, the West Bank, and all of Jerusalem (East and West) is illegal.

Under international law, Palestinians are entitled to all land within pre-1967 borders, but more than that. The 1947 Partition Plan gave them 42% of historic Palestine.

Jerusalem in its entirely remains an international city. 

In 1987, Francis Boyle drafted Palestine's Declaration of Independence. On November 15, 1988, the Palestinian National Council (PNC) adopted his Memorandum "proclaim(ing) the existence of the new independent state of Palestine."
