In International NY Times, Property Dispute is Big News, Dafna Meir's Murder Ignored
In a prominently placed article on the top of page-two, The International New York Times today published more than 1,100 words concerning property disputes in Jerusalem's Old City ("'Hornet's nest' in Old City"). The lengthy, erroneous and misleading article is accompanied by a huge four-column and six-inch high photograph of Palestinian women and children in their home from which they are threatened with eviction.
The caption reads:
Nazira Maswadi, left, with her daughter, Alia Maswadi, right, and two grandchildren at the home in Jerusalem's Old City from which they face eviction. "This is all I have," Nazira Maswadi said.
Meanwhile, three days after 39-year-old Israeli Dafna Meir lost everything including her life, The International New York Times has not printed one word about her. On Sunday, Meir was stabbed to death in her own home in the West Bank settlement of Otniel in front of at least one of her children. Renana, Meir's 17-year-old daughter, reportedly fought with the 15-year-old Palestinian attacker and screamed for help.
We have earlier noted that the day after she was killed, The International New York Times chose to publish a three-paragraph news brief on anti-Christian graffiti in a famous Jerusalem church. But not a word about Meir.
The International New York Times has chosen to feature and highlight Palestinian women and children maybe facing evictions from their homes due to failure to pay rent, and to entirely ignore an Israeli woman murdered at home, along with her children, some of who were at home during their mother's killing. Below is a sampling of images of Dafna Meir and her children, ignored by The International New York Times.
