Palestinians Promote Genocide; NYTimes Silent

Once more the editors declare that “The United States and its Quartet partners… should put a map and a deal on the table, with a timeline for concluding negotiations… The core element: a Palestinian state based on pre-1967 borders [sic] with mutually agreed land swaps…”

Predictably, there is again no acknowledgment in the editorial of the obstacles to peace presented by Palestinian leaders’ refusal to accept Israel’s legitimacy within any borders and their incessant incitement to the state’s destruction. Of course, there’s once more no reference to Palestinian promotion of the extermination of Jews.

For Thomas Friedman, the Times perennial op-ed “expert” on Middle East affairs, Palestinian incitement, including the incitement to genocide, is likewise a non-issue. The major issue is, and has always been, the settlements. More recently, as in a June 18, 2011, op-ed, Friedman has embraced the mantra of a return to the 1967 “borders” (as he characterizes the cease-fire lines in the op-ed) with “mutually agreed border adjustments.” In the piece, entitled “What to Do With Lemons,” Friedman proposes a new UN resolution which, in some respects copying the 1947 General Assembly Resolution 181 that called for partition of Mandate Palestine into a Jewish state and an Arab state, would repeat this formula but specify, in Friedman’s words, “the dividing line should be based on the 1967 borders…” Friedman insists such a new General Assembly resolution would satisfy the basic desires of both sides. As is typical for Friedman, the Palestinians have no desire to destroy Israel and annihilate its inhabitants as well as other Jews. That part of reality would sour the lemonade he brilliantly fantasizes – has for decades brilliantly fantasized – creating out of Middle East lemons.

Nicholas Kristof is the Times op-ed writer who likewise opines extensively on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, invariably to bash Israel. In fact, there is virtually no form of anti-Israel disinformation – whether concerning supposed Israeli withholding of electricity or water from Palestinians, or stealing Palestinian land, or destroying Palestinian homes – that Kristof has not parroted.

    TOILET PAPER IS EXPENSIVE, WE USED OUR CRIMINAL COMMUNIST PARER LIKE TOILET PAPER ?rip it put string thru hole and hang on the nail, next to toilet enviroment friendly.

      Using it for toilet paper still leaves one at risk of something fowl rubbing off.

    I predict the New York Times will fall because they are actually supporting Terrorism. Some Newspapers and Media outlets have contributed whole heartedly to Jihad too.

    “And the indoctrination has consequences. As a generation of young Palestinians has grown up knowing only the PA’s education curriculum, and PA media and mosque incitement has shaped broader Palestinian opinion for almost two decades, the indoctrination has rendered the possibility of genuine peace only more remote.”
    Yet and still the US provides aid to this pretense of a people seeking peace.
    The world is willfully blind to Israel and will pay the price. I look forward in hope. I still expect to see the 3rd Temple built and that would mean the Dome is gone. This tells me that though all hell may break, Israel will triumph…Thank G_d!!

    • Dawn

      It will happen, the Bible in Revelation predicts a third temple being built. As a taxpaying American citizen I am sick and tired of my tax money being funneled to Palestinian terrorism.

    leftist journalists and writers where always tolerant to brutality of the next totalitarian ideology: in Soviet Russia they where best friends of terrorist V CH K ( KGB`s predecessor) and understood "class-hate".Today they are tolerant to planning genocide and ethnic cleansing of Jews as the inevitable excess of "liberation movement".
    There aren`t an inhuman actions that won1t be justificated by leftist media.

    Arafat and his cruel PLO were REWARDED for their satanic atrocities and mass murders of Lebanon's Christians. Arafat and his PLO were introduced to Israel as their "peace" partners and provided with mega money, land and weapons. Arafat and his PLO terrorists did EXACTLY as was expected of them: they severely persecuted the Arab Christians of Judea, Samaria and Gaza and waged ruthless jihad against Israel's Jews.

    Every person responsible for bringing into Israel and empowering, financing and military training global terrorist, Arafat, and the PLO/PA Muslim terrorists have an all-consuming hate for both Jews and Christians.

  • Linda Rivera

    In a recent poll of Palestinian opinion – 73% agreed with a quote from the Hamas charter on the need to kill all Jews.

    This religion-inspired murderous hate for Jews is well known by ruling elites. The elites know that Muslims can't wait to perpetrate a Second Holocaust of Jews. UN/US/EU/UK and other nations' leaders are guilty of wickedly seeking a Second Holocaust via an illegitimate Muslim terror state implant that will reduce little Israel at mid-section to 9 miles wide INDEFENSIBLE, Auschwitz borders.

    Not one inch of Jewish Holy Land to genocidal monsters!

    The Times' news department is run by Jewess Jill Abramson. For the love of God man, how can you expect this Harvard educated Jew to be favorable to Israel. The antithesis is guaranteed to be true lest she and all the Jews running theJew York Times be accused of consiring to run the world. The NT Times' co-conspirator paper in Israel is Haaretz. Their job, discredit Israel at every twist & turn, try with every editorial to depose Netanyahu and get The Queenn of Surrender, ,TZIPI Livni, in power. To them she's a great example of a "brilliant" & "strong" Jewess. To the Usraeli voter they are glad she's long gone as she is mostly responsible for Israel's security decline. Ultimately Abramson & her Jewish counterparts at the NY Times would prefer to see Israel destroyed than be embarrassed as being Jews who support a strong Israel. They are spineless as they haven't the guts to buck the trend of overwhelming far-Left Jew hate from non-Jewish & self-loathing Jewish elitists & "intellectuals" who dominate their industry.

    to all readers, i agree with this assesment of the FALSEtinian question. they are indocriated from childhood to view Israel as illegalment and "occuiped Palestine," rather than an independent sovergian state. this is reinfroced in mosques and meida throughout the life of a FALSEtinian. by contrast, terrorism aganist Israeli civilians is protrayed as heroic "resistance to the occuipers" and even streets are named after martyrs. Israel failes to see this, and thinks that "peace" can be achieved by negotations.

    It is simple.
    If Muslims want to enact a genocide, it is perfectly in order, because it carries religious sanction.
    If others either pre-empt or retaliate, it is foul, because it does not carry religious sanction.
    NYT being a religious paper, is with supporting those who are following their religion.
    Simple. Is it not?

  • DanKelso

    Opposing Arab colonialism and Muslim theocracy, oppression of women and non-Muslims, and supporting the free and democratic state of Israel are progressive positions.

    Kenneth Levin is totally right and the NY Times hasn't said one word about this.

    Abbas honors terrorist Dalal Mughrabi, killer of 37
    This week Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas once again honored the memory of the terrorist Dalal Mughrabi – this time by sponsoring a ceremony celebrating the 50th anniversary of her birth. Mughrabi led the worst terror attack in Israel's history in 1978, when she and other terrorists hijacked a bus and killed 37 civilians. Present at the ceremony were Palestinian dignitaries and a children's marching band. Earlier this year, Abbas sponsored a computer center named after Mughrabi.
    The PA further glorified Mughrabi on the date of her birth when the Governor of Ramallah announced the naming of the "Dalal Mughrabi Square".

  • DanKelso

    You notice Thomas Friedman thinks Abbas is a moderate.
    If this a moderate, then Ted Bundy was a moderate.
    Abbas financed the Munich Massacre.

    Hamas and the PLO derive their legitimacy by killing Israeli secretaries and high schoolers.

    The Palestinians have raised an entire generation to believe that the highest aspiration in life is to kill Jews. The Palestinians are engaged in an unremitting campaign of targetted murder of women and children. When the Palestinians massacre Israeli school children on buses, and babies in baby carriages, they celebrate. They have raised an entire generation to believe that the the ! highest cultural and religious value is the massacre of Jews. Through the Arabs hate, an entire generation has lost the capacity for humanity.

  • DanKelso

    Kenneth Levin wrote, In a recent poll of Palestinian opinion – 73% agreed with a quote from the Hamas charter on the need to kill all Jews.

    We should remember, No less than 84% of the Palestinians supported the Mercaz Harav yeshiva massacre in 08 in Jerusalem.
