Netanyahu’s latest “cartoon evidence” of alleged Palestinian terrorism is the claim that Gazans have built a tunnel that pops up next to a kindergarten in Israel. Where is the evidence? Or is this just a big lie?
Netanyahu’s latest “cartoon evidence” of Palestinian terrorism has a stereotypical drawing of a Muslim woman with her head covered walking her baby and protecting a militant. In the US we would call that racist and Islamophobic.
Benjamin Netanyahu publishes a cartoon of rockets inside apartments and a mosque in a Palestinian neighborhood to attempt to justify a massive attack over night that killed 17 children and 46 other Palestinians.
The same kind of ignorant and violent policies that U.S. neoconservatives have carried out in the Middle East are also a reason for the exodus of children from Central America. They endorsed policies there in the 1980s that have repercussions today
Patrick Chappatte has a moving cartoon describing the Israel/Palestine conflict as a “cycle of violence.” This is inaccurate– it’s about occupation and resistance–but a step forward from the time that the mainstream said, The Arabs are trying to push the Jews into the sea.
Israeli Lt Col Peter Lerner says “no orders were necessary” for West Bank militants to kill Israeli teens at the behest of Hamas in Gaza — and therefore Israel can retaliate for the action. Is he a mindreader? What country would accept this standard of proof?
Laurie Goodstein’s splendid coverage of the Presbyterians divestment decision in the Times emphasizes the seriousness of the church members and the role of Jewish Voice for Peace. A real advanc in coverage of the conflict, in a paper where the old guard still holds sway
The New York Times describes hasbara as public diplomacy. But it’s often concerted propaganda efforts on behalf of the Israeli government– and the word and its cynical meaning deserve to be in the American language, just like those other imports, schadenfreude, chutzpah and apartheid.
Thomas Friedman’s New York Times column on the catastrophe in Iraq, titled “5 Principles for Iraq,” is dishonest, pedestrian, and poorly written. Isn’t it time he lost his job?
Here is how history might have unfolded in an alternate universe in which the U.S. never invaded Iraq. Historians would later record how Secretary of State Colin Powell prevailed in a key Cabinet meeting in early 2003, when he refused to go before the United Nations because he lacked proof that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. “What if the U.N. inspections have actually worked, Mr. President?” he asked. “It would be a disaster if we invade and then can’t find anything.”
Why is anyone taking Kenneth Pollack and Tom Friedman seriously when it comes to Iraq’s crisis. Destabilizing the society was their handiwork, in advocating for the disastrous invasion of 2003. When you’re fighting a fire, why would you turn to the arsonists for help?
New York Times correspondents who want to accurately report on human rights in occupied Palestine should consult the Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem more often.
The Obama administration hardly waited for the vote counting in India to end before foolishly inviting Narendra Modi to the White House.
Millions of Africans who are HIV-positive are alive today thanks partly to former president George W. Bush. Was it his effort to redeem his awful decision to launch the war on Iraq? He says no.
Tony Blair’s big speech on the Middle East is dishonest and misleading. Is he trying to clean up his own record of foreign policy failure in Iraq and Afghanistan?
Pamela Paul, the editor of The New York Times Book Review, needs some help, and the Mondoweiss community can come to her assistance. Paul says that maybe the Book Review should have edited a letter it published that claimed “Palestinian Arabs have avowed as their goal the killing of all Jews.” Care to help them out?
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
