The New York Times spreading hate against the Palestinians


by Marivel Guzman

The following segment is the second paragraph of a letter sent to the editor of The New York Times regarding a book reviewed by Joseph Dorman, “Genesis” by John B. Judis.

The “conflict” between Arabs and Jews is not the result of the “Zionist lobby” preventing the United States from enforcing “peace.” Left unsaid is the extent to which such a “peace” may imperil the survival of Israel, although that is a likely goal of “Zionist lobby” detractors. The “conflict” exists because, by word and deed, Palestinian Arabs have avowed as their goal the killing of all Jews. The Jews have decided they will not be killed. It will not be resolved until Palestinians stop teaching their children to hate. WALTER SCHIMMERLING, WASHINGTON (segment of a letter to the editor of the NYT)

The New York Times is a credible newspaper widely read in the US and around the world and it should keep its readers informed and at the same time should allow its readers to exercise their freedom of speech.

Saying that the NYT also should refrain or at least give it a deeper thought when chose to publish inflammatory comments that are complete lies that only deepens the misinformation spread by the Jews’ Lobby in the US specially by AIPAC-the Israel agency that works in the US as lobby agency-disinformation that had created a fake atmosphere of hate against the Jews.

In its review of “Genesis,” John B. Judis  makes a reference to Truman from “Genesis” trying to appeal to history as if the predicament was for the Jews and not for the Palestinians that were losing their land to a newly invented nation.

 

“Over the course of “Genesis,” John B. Judis recounts Truman’s predicament, trapped between his desire to find a fair and equitable outcome for Arabs and Jews in Palestine and the seeming impossibility of doing so. But Judis is interested in telling a larger story, one that lays a good deal of responsibility on the American Zionist lobby for Truman’s — and America’s — failure to construct a just and peaceful solution.” New York Times Book Review by Jonhn B. Judis

There is no such hate from Arabs taught to their children but the other way around. There are thousandth of documented cases of settlers in the occupied territory harassing Palestinians, destroying their property, stealing their goats, and killing them also without legal repercussions from the Israel Defense Forces.

When we see lies such this being printed in The New York Times,-even in their letters to the editor-we see that this newspapers is giving credibility and foot to the claim the Palestinians teach hate to their children and with this type of printing material creating more hate and spreading more lies.

The New York Times would not permit any other group of people on earth to be blood-libeled like this– even in a letter to the editor.

Mr. Schimmerling is entitled to his view of John Judis’s (excellent) book.  He is not entitled to lie that “Palestinian Arabs have avowed as their goal the killing of all Jews.”

The Times must apologize to all its readers, especially to those who are “Palestinian Arabs,” and the newspaper should also reprimand the editor who allowed this libel to get into print ”  The MONDOWEISS

Boycott and Divestment Sanctions is  the non-violent movement started from within the civil Palestinian population, it is rapidly taking roots as a grassroots movement and moving in the right direction to bring Israel to comply with its international obligations, and could be use to boycott institutions that give financial  and logistical support to Israel. Its time to boycott the propaganda channels as well,  the institutions that that make its official policy to support Israle no matter what, and corporations that one way or another benefit from the occupation.
