NYT regrets running Sen. Cotton’s call for military crackdown on protest. It should do the same for 4 op-eds justifying Israel killing nonviolent demonstrators. But Bari Weiss’s role at newspaper reflects long attachment to Zionism at NYT.
The New York Times publishes Israel advocate Matti Friedman’s false claim that the suicide bombings of the Second Intifada are a repressed memory, but that’s why the left is no account. The Second Intifada as a political crossroads is a standard talking point of Israel supporters. What is repressed is the Palestinian death toll, which Friedman leaves out of his op-ed completely.
