The NYT hates Israel
By ISI LEIBLER:
The brouhaha over the recent New York Times column by journalist Thomas Friedman highlights the newspaper’s increasing hostility against Israel. Today, it would not be an exaggeration to state that the editorial policy of The New York Times towards the Jewish State is virtually indistinguishable from the blatant anti-Israel hostility promoted by the UK-based Guardian or the BBC.
Fortunately, the broader American public opinion has never been more supportive of the Jewish State than today. The only exceptions are the liberals, some of whom have become increasingly disenchanted with Israel and now tend to identify with their European counterparts and their excessive bias against Israel. This manifests itself on American college campuses and, to some extent, in far-left sectors of the Democratic Party. It represents the source of the tensions which have evolved between Israel and the United States following the election of US President Barack Obama and his administration.
