NYTimes: From anti-Israel bias to an anti-Israel basher



A. writes…

To the NewYorkTimes [letters@nytimes.com, editorial@nytimes.com]



It has been a long time since I took a peek in that paper, I apologize for being forced into it when meeting 2 relatives in a starbucks cafe, their flight was delayed, so the nytimes gained my attention, regrettably.



July 4 – 2010



Here are glimpses of the “quality” newspaper:



1) Frontpage of the (“Jewish?”) New York Times talks about strained relations between US-Israel, note, A) Mark Landler does not talk about frictions between Obama’s administration and the Netanyahu’s (A.K.A. naming the problem), but ‘between US & Israel.’

B) It titles the flotilla ship (you know, that radical-Islamists IHH led boat that attacked violently the Israeli security and called: “Kill the Jews for Allah!” and “Go back to Auschwitz! prior to that), no more and no less but: “humanitarian aid.”



2) Then, in the section: “Inside the Times” (p. 3, a summary of what awaits the reader…)

I notice briefly that Nicholas D. Kristof writes something… oh, wait where do I remember

that name from? Of course, that’s the guy that wrote about the Arab slavery & genocide

on Africans in Darfur but never had the courage to name it what it is: Arab racism, writing and writing so much material about that calamity, yet always beating around the bushes (Mr. Honigman has criticized him, a lot, google it up). So, Am I interested in anything Mr. Kristof has to say? not really. [if he can’t “see” the Arabs committing crimes against humanity in Africa, why would he see it in Arab-Palestine?] I didn’t even bother to look “inside” his article that “criticizes” Israel’s blockade over (Hamas’ controlled) Gaza.



3) Obituaries… (p. 19) Do you ever think, the bias-virus can spread there as well, sure enough in the never impartial Nytimes, anything is possible. Do you have any idea who the “chosen one” was this week? believe it or not, [Mohammed Oudeh] the planner of the infamous anti-Israel massacre by Arab-Muslim “Palestinians” in 1972, the Munich murderous cold blooded attack on Israel’s sport team [Why? “freedom fighters” of course].

So, Do you also know who provided the material for the “quality paper,” it was an Arab in Ramallah, W.B [Khaled Abu Aker – whatever] “reporting…” about how “great of a father he was,” [these loveable neutral guys always “report,” never posting opinions of course, not surprisingly the ‘Pallywood’ term pops up suddenly) aren’t

you intrigued as me to know how “wonderful” this low life murderer was?



In any case, all in all, a typical “dry” Sunday (wait until it gets interesting in Israel “Palestine”), and anti-Israel rant is all over it, and I barely had a chance to really ‘read’ the times. My family members appeared, thank you very much. I think I’ll pass, (Ma’am) Can I have 2 cappuccinos, to go, please?



I still notice how racist Arabists and Nazi KKK/supremacists call that paper “jewish,” not sure why, for all it is, it’s one staunch Arabist paper, certainly no better than the BBC,

who openly admitted a few years back of being biased against Christianity & against Israel.

I take it back, What a stupid question to wonder about haters’ “facts?”

PS
The date above says, July – 2010, but the date is irrelevant, the sample is certainly a pathetic routine.

1) Sad note: Whatever happened to the prestigious newspaper, the last 10-15 Years or so…?
2) Reality note: I guess there’s a real logic behind the huge loss of subscription, on top of deep disapppointing “opinions,” its bias has already reached a dreadful boring (not boiling) point – yawn!
3) Happy note: I am so glad that I do not have a habit to read that quality-less paper.

Arabs’ man, ‘corrupted Arab-oil man’ in Obama’s admin. ‘Pro – Dictatorship, ‘ARABIST – BIGOT’ C. Freeman attempted appointment for the CIA

March 11, 2009

 Arabs’ man, ‘corrupted Arab-oil man’  in Obama’s admin. ‘Pro – Dictatorship, ‘ARABIST – BIGOT’ C. Freeman attempted appointment for the CIA

Alarming appointment at the CIA by Steve Rosen Thu, 19 Feb 2009 at 3:55 PM

Readers of this blog know that I have been generally quite positive about the appointments the new Adminsitration is making for Middle East policy positions. Today’s news is quite different. According to Laura Rozen at the Foreign Policy blog, Chas W. Freeman, Jr., the former U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia, will become chairman of the National Intelligence Council, and may at times participate in daily intelligence briefings to President Obama. This is a profoundly disturbing appointment, if the report is correct. Freeman is a strident critic of Israel, and a textbook case of the old-line Arabism that afflicted American diplomacy at the time the state of Israel was born. His views of the region are what you would expect in the Saudi foreign ministry, with which he maintains an extremely close relationship, not the top CIA position for analytic products going to the President of the United States.

Here is a sample of his views on Israel, from his Remarks to the National Council on US-Arab Relations on September 12, 2005: “As long as the United States continues unconditionally to provide the subsidies and political protection that make the Israeli occupation and the high-handed and self-defeating policies it engenders possible, there is little, if any, reason to hope that anything resembling the former peace process can be resurrected. Israeli occupation and settlement of Arab lands is inherently violent. …And as long as such Israeli violence against Palestinians continues, it is utterly unrealistic to expect that Palestinians will stand down from violent resistance and retaliation against Israelis. Mr. Sharon is far from a stupid man; he understands this. So, when he sets the complete absence of Palestinian violence as a precondition for implementing the road map or any other negotiating process, he is deliberately setting a precondition he knows can never be met.” Here is another example from 2008: “We have reflexively supported the efforts of a series of right-wing Israeli governments to undo the Oslo accords and to pacify the Palestinians rather than make peace with them. … The so-called “two-state solution” – is widely seen in the region as too late and too little. Too late, because so much land has been colonized by Israel that there is not enough left for a viable Palestinian state alongside Israel; too little, because what is on offer looks to Palestinians more like an Indian reservation than a country.”

According to Foreign policy blog, Freeman has told associates that in the job, he will occasionally accompany Director of National Intelligence Adm. Dennis Blair to give the president his daily intelligence briefing. His predecessor, Thomas Fingar, wore a second hat as deputy director of national intelligence for analysis.

I repeat: if there are serious financial conflicts of interest, Freeman should withdraw. I also find some of Freeman’s realist statements, even as contrarian, a little too brutal for my taste. But I also believe that someone whose views push the envelope against recent US policy in the Middle East is an important asset for the United States right now. And I find the hysterical bullying of this man to be repulsive.

ANOTHER MAN DOWN… Furthermore, researcher Ashley Rindsberg recently revealed Freeman’s pre- and post-9/11 “business connections” with the bin Laden family, which have donated “tens of thousands of dollars a year” to the MEPC. Rindsberg also discovered donations to Obama’s presidential campaign by Freeman’s Projects International, “a company that develops international business deals.”
