In what might be justified by the New York Times as an attempt to “depoliticize” and “humanize” Palestinian women in Gaza the paper ran a photo essay this past Sunday titled “Female in Gaza.” However the article obfuscates, covering up Israeli oppression and obscuring Gaza’s connection to the West Bank and to Palestinians in general.
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?
Before journalist and author Max Blumenthal turned his eye towards Israel/Palestine, he was a dogged investigator of the seedy world of neo-Nazism and white supremacism in the U.S. But now, liberal Israeli newspaper Haaretz has joined right-leaning Israel advocates in trying to turn the tables on him by linking the journalist to Frazier Glenn Miller, the suspect in Sunday’s deadly shooting at two Jewish centers in Kansas City.
Jodi Rudoren, the New York Times Jerusalem Bureau Chief, has been remiss in her Gaza coverage so Ira Glunts was surprised by her article titled, “Mideast Tensions Sideline a Gazan Marathon Runner.” It featured the video at the top on The Times’ web site and was mostly free of the “balancing” Israeli government point-of-view which always seems to be prominent in the newspaper’s articles about Palestinians.
Jerome Slater reviews Simon Schama’s PBS documentary “The Story of the Jews,” and says Schama’s emotionalism, strong but not necessarily persuasive beliefs, and tendency to oversimplify or, worse, ignore inconvenient facts, creates serious problem when he takes on Zionism, the establishment of Israel, and the continuing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The Jewish Daily Forward’s coverage of the Scarlett Johansson-SodaStream affair betrayed Jewish and progressive values, write activists Donna Nevel and Rebecca Vilkomerson. It was deeply dissapointing hat the Forward’s coverage of this issue was inaccurate, sloppy, and unprincipled.
Haaretz columnist and author Ari Shavit has gone all in on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s demand that the Palestinians recognize Israel as a “Jewish state.” And if you read his new book My Promised Land: The Triumph and Tragedy of Israel, you’ll understand why. Shavit is a devoted proponent of liberal Zionism, an ideology that pushes a peace agreement to save Israel’s Jewish character in the face of what they call “demographic threats.”
Right-wing news outlets and Israel lobby groups have mounted a concerted campaign over the past few days to attack students leading the call for divestment at the University of Michigan (UM). The latest attack smears a student over a photo, the meaning of which was distorted by a neoconservative news outlet.
NY Times should apologize for publishing Palestinians ‘have avowed as their goal the killing of all Jews’
Ira Glunts calls on readers to send a letter to Margaret Sullivan, the Public Editor of The New York Times, asking the paper to apologize for printing slanderous letter in the New York Times Book Review.
The Israeli Government Advertising Agency, known for promoting tourism, is paying a journalist $61,800 to cover Pope Francis’s upcoming visit.

Review of recent ‘NYT’ corrections raises doubts about paper’s commitment to getting the facts right in Israel/Palestine
A review of some recent cases of New York Times “corrections,” raises serious doubts about the paper’s commitment to getting the facts right in its reporting on Palestine and Israel.
Tuesday evening The New York Times posted a new article by Landler and Rudoren covering Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech that day at the AIPAC convention, entitled Netanyahu Promotes Efforts Toward a Peace Deal. While the title of the article and the portrayal of Netanyahu as a possible peacemaker are disingenuous given his record and the vitriolic content of his speech, the article’s content related to BDS represents a marked improvement over the two previous, very poor BDS-focused articles by Landler and Rudoren.
A letter to the New York Times Public Editor on the strong predominance of anti-boycott views in The New York Times’ two most recent news articles about the movement to boycott Israel.
In The New York Times, Palestinian land has become something else again. It is not the State of Palestine, not simply Palestine, not the occupied Palestinian territories and not really Israel either. It is all murkier than that.
On February 12th, Jodi Rudoren argued in a New York Times article against the Palestinian-led Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, imploring readers to consider Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s position that BDS is “immoral”. If we take their claims at face value, than it behooves us to ask why so many Americans consider BDS a moral tool to protest Israeli policies?
New York Times offers Israeli propaganda that it does not split up Palestinian families. But an Israeli human rights organization and the leading Israeli newspaper says Israel tears families apart. Why doesn’t the Times tell us that?
An ad for Coca-Cola during the Super Bowl promoted the diversity of America with people from various ethnic and racial backgrounds singing “America the beautiful” in multiple languages. The ad featured Muslim American women, some of whom are Palestinian American, enjoying a good ol’ Coke. Needless to say, Coca-Cola is a corporation and corporations are not our friends or next-door neighbors.
Whatever its political implications, SodaStream’s ad for the Super Bowl didn’t land well among viewers and mavens. It’s getting panned.
In recent days both NY Times columnist Thomas Friedman and Special Envoy Martin Indyk have leaked elements of what is expected to be John Kerry’s “framework” proposal to Israeli and Palestinian leadership. The framework appears vague and Indyk has said the sides don’t have to agree to it in full. For these reasons the value of the Kerry plan would seem only to sustain the talks, not move them forward toward a final resolution. The peace process continues….
‘NYT’ fails to disclose that Op-Ed author arguing Israel’s case against BDS is husband of ‘NYT’ reporter in Israel/Palestine
Hirsh Goodman, an Israeli-South African analyst and the husband of Isabel Kershner, pens a column in the New York Times on how the BDS movement is winning the narrative war in the West. The column by is noteworthy for two reasons: the Times doesn’t see fit to disclose that his wife reports for the paper on Israel/Palestine; and he reflects growing Israeli panic over the BDS movement.
The Guardian just launched an online poll on the ScarJo controversy.
