Words of the Week

“The front page of the New York Times Sunday Review featured one of the most biased, poorly informed, and historically inaccurate columns about the conflict between Israel and Palestine ever published by a mainstream newspaper. Written by Michelle Alexander, it is entitled, ‘Time to break the silence on Palestine,’ as if the Palestinian issue has not been the most overhyped cause on campuses, at the United Nations, and in the media.”

    Totally agree with Dershowitz on this…it was a disgrace for the Times to publish the Alexander article, especially in connection with MLK day.

      Yes. I’m aware that for some people–including many who most need to read the piece–the byline will automatically distance them. But I figured that I should share it anyway. The issues are that important, and the piece is that strong.
