Alas, Ms. Hussein. You’ve been duped. Under the guise and/or auspices of journalistic perpetuity which tows the Pro-Israel line. Pity on Mr. Cohen– who is an NYT hack– a relic, a quisling, a fully subsidized and brain-demoralized Zionist aparachik, who pretends that he possesses integrity, insight, and empathy while delivering “da news” about Israel and Palestine. Would we go so far as calling Roger “an Israeli insider or infiltrator?” Maybe he gets “first dibs” on cool assignments in the fledgling West Bank. Would we hold Cohen’s bosses at the NYT accountable for his blatantly false, irresponsible journalism, and his vacuous misrepresentations, which intentionally negate and omit “on-the-ground” facts about the brutal, dehumanizing, interminable occupation and oppression of the indigenous Palestinian people (men, women, children, clergy, decades-old refugee ghosts, and the very Holy Land itself?) Maybe Roger Cohen’s visit to Nablus via Ramallah was well-intentioned… an academic “field trip” of sorts… an “old school” assignment that’s meant to help re-educate and edify a key class member of the “ahemmm, biased” press corps. Ms. Hussien works for an NGO? Accolades for her honest, altruistic, and U.S.-educated, hard-working self that “survives” in a depraved settler-colonial, apartheid regime. But alas, Miss Darin saw the light, AFTER Cohen turned in his homework assignment and it passed inspection at the NYT editorial checkpoint. Like so many MONDOWEISS supporters, I had seen/and sill see through Cohen’s clever mumbo-jumbo (and guilt-absent) journalism over the many years… much like the tainted, tempestuous journalism of Cohen’s other bought-and-paid-for colleagues Ethan, Tom, Isabel, etal… who by the way, have subsidized apartments, family, and retirement aspirations in beloved Israel (and its facsimile Illegal Settlements, thereof). It is sooo hard not to be cynical and critical about peace and justice in Palestine. Long live free speech! In the words of our Beloved Leonard Cohen, “Democracy is coming… to the U.S.A.” Thank You Phil and staff! Your work does not go unnoticed and unappreciated.
