Customary Condemnation

The New York Times yesterday published an article titled "Images of Palestinian Pleasure Not Allowed." Not allowed by the Israeli oppressor, the piece's opening makes clear.

An illuminating exercise: In which paragraph does reporter Jodi Rudoren finally admit that the delayed delivery of books to a Palestinian activist, which is the main subject of the piece, "may well have been routine" and tax related?

I "like" how she puts her own personal opinion in the article They were, ahem, “detained�? by the Israeli authorities.

Rudoren is the second, or maybe the third, NYT correspondent from Israel. So it's far from an
accident that the Times deliberately sends Jew/Israel-hating correspondents to cover Israel.

There is method in this madness. Oh, how the Times has fallen from its once-hagiographic status!
