Why Is the NY Times
Islamist Terrorism´s Apologist?

Arutz Sheva (Israel), by Phyliss Chesler

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 11/27/2012 7:17:53 AM

Mainly, I lead a quiet, writer’s life. I read, I write, I listen to music, I gaze out my window.(snip) I read online and I read hardcopies of the Wall Street Journal, The New York Post, the New York Times, the New York Review of Books, the Jewish media, the feminist media and the conservative media. I am a thoughtful person. I do not deserve to be misled so purposely and so continuously, day after day, every single day; as well as year after year.

Why are we surprised that NYT would be an apologist for Islamic terrorists? It was an apologist for Stalin before that.

Show me the money--the Saudi money. Someone or some entity is supporting the NYT. Islamists buy their way into Congress and academia. Would they miss the chance to fund a mouthpiece?

Old,white,Christian conservatives appear to have neglected the hard work and dedication required to influence the media.

So far we have not accomplished a single beheading, not one stoning, not a single honor killing or suicide bombing.

Pure laziness.

Morally vainglorious cowards in denial and victims of Stockholm syndrome. A disgrace to America, their profession, and humanity itself. There have, of course, always been poor specimens of humanity like this. The problem today is that they control and represent the intelligentsia, including the universities. They are manifestations of a dangerous and widespread moral and intellectual decadence among the very people society depends upon to think clearly, honestly and courageously about serious problems we face. They are a kind of unwitting Fifth Column - and by far the biggest danger facing the American republic today.

I grew up with people like Chesler. I wouldn´t be at all surprised if, at some point, we were at a party together as teenagers. Perhaps that is why this article exasperates me to the point of breathlessness. HEY PHYLLIS, IF YOU HAD BEEN PAYING ATTENTION FOR THE PAST 40 YEARS AND NOT ADVANCING YOUR INSANE FEMINIST AGENDA YOU WOULD HAVE KNOWN DECADES AGO THAT THE TIMES WAS LIKE THIS. But NOOOOOO! We have to "respect" the Times and put up with their garbage because they are THE NEW YORK TIMES, THE PAPER OF RECORD (whatever that idiotic term of art means). Suddenly NOW you realize that the Times has been lying to you. Well, I suppose a more gracious man would say, "How nice to see you at the party at last Phyliss. We have been waiting for you." But, you and your ilk taught me not to be gracious to women because it was sexist. So, honestly, I´m annoyed that it has taken you this long to suddenly and keenly GRASP THE OBVIOUS.

Media abuzz over ‘apocalyptic’
Yarmouk refugee camp photo
Al Arabiya News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 2/26/2014 2:56:55 PM     Post Reply
A photograph of the Yarmouk refugee camp in Syria is going viral as international media outlets focus on the scenes of “unimaginable desolation.” The shot, released by UNRWA, shows a crowd of men, women and children stretching as far as the eye can see, apparently waiting for aid at the UNRWA distribution point in the capital, Damascus, on Jan. 31. The Guardian called the scene one of “unimaginable desolation,” while Egyptian newspaper al-Bawaba tagged it “apocalyptic.” The Independent says it is “the picture that shows the true extent of the humanitarian crisis inside Palestinian refugee camp Yarmouk.” For its part,

Charles Krauthammer said Tuesday that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius would have an easier time recalling claims she made about ObamaCare if she stuck to "the truth." The Fox News contributor and syndicated columnist made the comments on "Special Report with Bret Baier" after Sebelius said in a recent interview that she didn´t know where they got the figure of 7 million for people signing up for ObamaCare. "Of course, she was the one that said it, among others," he said. "You know, it´s an old rule, ´say the truth, it´s easier to memorize.´" Krauthammer also reacted to the latest ObamaCare

President Hamid Karzai´s corrupt and irresponsible leadership has created a debate between U.S. hawks who don´t want to "cut and run" and war-weary Americans who want out. President Obama can do both. Pull out. Don´t cut and run. The case for withdrawal was made by Obama in his two presidential campaigns and supported by most voters. Nearly 13 years after Afghanistan nested the 9/11 attackers, it´s time to stop the loss of American life and treasure while attempting to stay relevant enough in the region to protect direct national security interests. Obama wants to construct a limited mission focused on training, advising, and

NFL could pull Super Bowl if

Call it what you want -- anti-gay or religious rights -- but if Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signs a controversial bill, you might not be calling Arizona the home of the 2015 Super Bowl. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act, S.B. 1062, is the current controversy du jour out of Arizona, and the National Football League is with the opposition. “Our policies emphasize tolerance and inclusiveness and prohibit discrimination based on age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or any other improper standard,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told USA Today. “We are following the issue in Arizona and will continue to do so should

Down with stakeholders. The American Academy of Pediatrics has come out against affordable health care for kids. Retail medical clinics — at drugstores, Walmarts, etc. — are cropping up across the nation, thanks in part to expected longer waiting times and out-of-pocket expenses from Obamacare. And pediatricians don’t like it. “While retail clinics may be more convenient and less costly, the AAP said they are detrimental to the concept of a ‘medical home,’ where patients have a personal physician who knows them well and coordinates all their care,” reported the Wall Street Journal. You say “medical home,” I say locked-in customers. Tomayto-tomahto. The

Kerry Kennedy played the Catholic card in her drugged-driving trial Tuesday, producing an actual Irish priest who testified that in the 41 years he’s known the jet-setter — from the days she lived in Virginia to the time she cracked up her Lexus SUV in Westchester — he’s never seen her on a bender. Now, I think I’ve seen everything. Defense lawyer William Aronwald asked the Rev. Gerard Creedon if Kerry, 54, has a reputation for being sober. “Very sober,’’ the priest shot back in a thick Irish brogue. “I’ve never seen her drunk,’’ added Father Creedon, who enjoys all the perks of

February cable ratings are in – Piers Morgan may be out at CNN, but what about the rest of the network’s primetime, that looked none too good for the month, all losing around half their audience compared to same month last year? CNN‘s Anderson Cooper at 8 PM dropped 47%, February to February, in overall audience, to average 421,000 viewers, and 46% in the news demo, to 127,000 news-demo viewers for the month, according to Nielsen.

Turkish opposition parties called on the prime minister to resign on Tuesday as a result of an explosive corruption scandal in which he was allegedly caught on tape ordering his son to get rid of millions of dollars in incriminating cash. Recep Tayyip Erdogan responded in characteristically robust form, dismissing the allegations against him as a plot to bring down his government – the latest in a wave of accusations fuelling widespread popular protest against his 11-year rule. Recordings of phone-tapped conversations leaked on the internet appear to capture Erdogan instructing his 33-year-old son, Bilal, to dispose of large amounts

Maryland is firing the prime contractor that built its online health insurance marketplace, which has so many structural defects that the state might soon have to abandon all or parts of the system that cost tens of millions of dollars to build. The vote to jettison Noridian Healthcare Solutions came Sunday at a late night meeting and at the recommendation of Isabel FitzGerald, the cabinet secretary in charge of information technology. She was joined by the board of the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange, according to testimony for a hearing set to begin in Annapolis. Columbia-based Optum/QSSI will take over as

The nation’s newest billionaire is a rags-to-riches success story who escaped communist Ukraine as a teen and lived on food stamps in the United States before hitting it big with a messaging app that has become the hottest thing in social media. Meet Jan Koum, the 37-year-old college dropout who with his partner and mentor, Brian Acton, just sold their startup, WhatsApp, to Facebook for $19 billion in cash and stocks. Koum is now worth $6.8 billion. It’s a long way from the government-assisted, two-bedroom apartment in Mountain View, Calif., where he came of age with his mom, and even farther from his

A few weeks before Season 2 of “House of Cards” debuted online, the show’s production company sent Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley a letter with this warning: Give us millions more dollars in tax credits, or we will “break down our stage, sets and offices and set up in another state.” A similar letter went to the speaker of the House of Delegates, Michael E. Busch (D-Anne Arundel), whose wife, Cynthia, briefly appeared in an episode of the Netflix series about an unscrupulous politician — played by Kevin Spacey — who manipulates, threatens and kills to achieve revenge and power.

NEW YORK — Just days after Mayor Bill de Blasio announced an aggressive plan to prevent traffic deaths, CBS 2 cameras caught the driver of a car carrying the mayor violating a number of traffic laws. But the NYPD responded Thursday evening that the mayor’s caravan, which is operated by police, sometimes has to use special driving techniques for protective reasons. As CBS 2´s Marcia Kramer reported Thursday, the mayor’s two-car caravan was seen speeding, blowing through stop signs, and violating other traffic laws.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney responded Monday night to the Obama administration’s proposal to cut the U.S. Army to its lowest point since before World War II. Calling into Fox News’ “Hannity,” Cheney declared the proposed cuts to be “absolutely dangerous” and “just devastating.” “I have not been a strong supporter of Barack Obama. But this really is over the top. It does enormous long-term damage to our military,” Cheney said. ”They act as though it is like highway spending and you can turn it on and off.

She may not look anywhere near her 76 years but Jane Fonda says she is well aware of her age.

In a thoughtful blog post entitled ´Crying´, which has since been removed, Jane wrote: ´[I´ve been thinking], how come my tears are so close to the surface?

Mitt Romney on Tuesday joined a growing chorus of Republicans urging the Arizona governor to veto a bill that would allow business owners to cite their religious beliefs in refusing service to gay people. The former Massachusetts governor tweeted at Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R), saying it “is right” to veto the bill passed by the state legislature last week. Brewer has not said whether she will sign or veto the measure. However, a number of media outlets have reported people close to her expect her to veto it. Brewer told CNN she would weigh both sides before deciding the right thing to

It has the makings of a royal mess for “King Barack.” Monday morning’s Supreme Court argument about the Environmental Protection Agency’s authority to regulate greenhouse gases went badly for the Obama administration — so much so that the real question before the justices seemed to be how severe the EPA’s loss would be. The administration’s solicitor general, Donald Verrilli, pleaded with the justices to recognize the “urgent problem” of climate change, because the “threat to future generations gets worse” with each passing year. But as the argument played out, the court’s swing justice, Anthony Kennedy, made clear that he

Were he alive today, Richard Nixon would have to doff his hat to Barack Obama. Compared with how the Obama administration has swept under the rug the Benghazi attacks of September 11, 2012, Nixon’s attempt to cover up the Watergate burglary was rank amateurism. To be fair, Nixon’s team of Haldeman, Ehrlichman, Mitchell, and Dean were not in the same league as Obama’s, which includes not only his cabinet but most of the national media and much of Congress. If a president were intent on covering something up—something big, such as an illegal gun walking operation to Mexico or a dereliction
