Narendra Modi, a politician who presided over anti-Muslim pogrom, may be India’s next leader, and U.S. cozies up to him
Will the United States continue to engage with India’s likely next leader, Narendra Modi, a man who presided over an anti-Muslim pogrom?
The theory of the ‘clash of civilizations,’ promulgated by the late Samuel Huntington (above) and once widely taken seriously, has been destroyed by events of the past few years in The Middle East
‘NYT Book Review’ publishes letter saying that Palestinians want to kill ‘all Jews.’ Would ‘NYT’ Book Review print such racism about any other people?
Maybe the NY Times should modify its famous slogan: “All the News That’s Fit to Hide,” after the paper buries Amnesty International’s report saying Israel is trigger-happy and killed 22 Palestinian civilians at protests in the last year
Outstanding journalists in India who write in English could replace Thomas Friedman overnight, improving the New York Times’s accuracy and saving it money.
What if, by some miracle, John Kerry’s negotiations lead toward a just settlement in Israel/Palestine?
The gloom today about the prospects for genuine democracy in Egypt may be premature, explains a distinguished scholar. Yes, the latest news from Egypt continues to depress. Three years after masses of brave demonstrators filled Tahrir Square, the new military government continues to arrest thousands of innocent people — with the apparent support of a majority of Egyptians. The security forces have libeled the Muslim Brotherhood as “terrorist,” despite no evidence, outlawed the organization and killed at least hundreds of its members. But doomsayers should look at European history.
The NYT leaves AIPAC and the Israel lobby out of an article describing the politics of legislation to scuttle Obama’s Iran deal. Jim Lobe tells you that right in his lead
Imagine a white supremacist southern senator dies — and ‘NYT’ leaves out black people’s views of him
Rudoren’s report on ‘Israeli’ views of Sharon leaves out 20% of Israelis
Are the American college presidents who speak out against the Israel boycott afraid of losing big donors if they keep quiet?
If you are an American mainstream reporter in Israel, you have a real challenge, just about every day. You have to wilfully ignore much of the news that is happening right around you. Max Blumenthal went everywhere in Israel/Palestine to dig out the truth about Israel in 2013 — a nation that is becoming more racist, more militarized, and more undemocratic.
You had to wait till the 16th paragraph of the New York Times front-page coverage of the American Studies Association vote for academic boycott of Israel to read a quote from a boycott proponent, Omar Barghouti.
Did the U.S. double-cross the Maldivian pro-democracy movement just so it could establish a military base there? Mohamed Nasheed, the dynamic, young, pro-environmentalist Muslim leader who had led race for presidency after the first round, lost by a couple of percentage points to the old regime’s candidate, Abdulla Yameen.
Yesterday a charismatic young politician came first in elections for Maldives president. But the army deposed him once and the government is postponing the final round of elections. And incompetence at the US State Department threatens Mohamed Nasheed, a progressive Muslim environmentalist leader.
Why is a well-known American journalist still covering up for Rwanda and Paul Kagame?
An Israeli mining magnate is robbing the poorest nation on earth
Canadian reporter shows that the ‘NYT’ was guided through a Potemkin village
America’s ‘newspaper of record’ continues to bungle the Congo story
A modest improvement today in the ‘NYT’s’ dismal coverage of the Congo disaster
A New York Times reporter romanticizes Congo “rebels’” and misses the bigger, awful story
America’s leading newspaper ignores the Gaza assault as part of the Israeli prime minister’s election campaign
Biden called Netanyahu Bibi over and over again in the debate last night– because the press does so. And when the press calls him “Bibi,” they humanize him in an affectionate way, making him out to be a bumbler– like one of the inept thieves in the movie Home Alone. When in fact he’s the prime minister of a militant and colonial state that imprisons thousands and that lately whitewashed the killing of a 23-year-old American woman
Big oil, gas and mining companies will now have to publish their payments to third world governments.
Language matters, and using the word “settlements” by itself is biased
Are other readers of the New York Times as enraged as I am by the latest piece from the paper’s new Jerusalem bureau chief, Jodi Rudoren? It’s a glowing profile of settler/colonist leader Dani Dayan, suitable for framing on the … Continue reading
