Palestinians and Incitement in the Times
Yesterday's editorial in the New York Times praised the Palestinian Authority for clamping down on incitement:
Palestinian authorities have clamped down on incitement, including removing imams and teachers who encourage attacks against Israelis. More can still be done.
Times readers would be forgiven for not knowing what "more can be done." The newspaper, after all, completely ignored the glorification earlier this month of a Palestinian terrorist involved in the massacre of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics. Palestinian Authority leaders Mahmoud Abbas and Salam Fayyad participated in that event.
Nor does the Times tend to take note of official indoctrination such as Palestinian Authority television's repeated references, during programing aimed at children, to Israeli cities actually being occupied Palestinian cities.

The Times has morphed from what was arguably the U.S.'s most respected newspaper, to a pathetic, p.c. obsessed mouthpiece for all the nonsense which emanates from the American Left these days.
"More can be done"--really! That could go down as perhaps the understatement of the century. They have billboards on the West Bank honoring the homicidal maniac who massacred 37 Israelis by hijacking a bus, cigarette lighters which when lit imitate the World Trade Center buildings on fire, and pretty much daily have the most outrageous anti-Semitic libels written in government-sanctioned newspapers.
To say nothing of all the hatred toward Jews and Israel on a regular basis by the Islamic religious "leaders".
Yes, "More can be done"--like completely revamping the hate-filled, intolerant, anti-Semitic, anti-Christian misogynistic mentality which pervades much of the entire Muslim world.
You would think that The Times would be embarrassed at this point by some of the demonstrably stupid content written ostensibly by their young and relentlessly liberal staff. I think they've basically lost their journalistic integrity, which is a defining issue for any news media.
