The New York Times has an article about Israeli discussions of annexing Maaleh Adumim.
Buried in the article, not noticeable unless you really pay attention, are a couple of things that the media usually ignores altogether.
Here’s one, in paragraph 15:
After eight years of little building, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu just allotted 100 new building units to Ma’ale Adumim, part of 2,500 new proposed housing units around the West Bank settlements, and another 560 in East Jerusalem.
For eight years we have been hearing about how Israel is building a huge number of houses in the territories and how that was preventing a two-state solution. And many of these charges came from Obama and Kerry.
If the New York Times cares about truth, and is so keen to call the current president a liar, than why did they not do the same for Obama’s false claims?
Here’s the second piece of truth that accidentally was revealed by the NYT article: a photo of the mall in Maaleh Adumim.
Two Muslim girls (and an Ethiopian child) hanging out in the mall of this “settlement.”
If you read the New York Times or other media, you wouldn’t think that Arabs ever appear in the Jewish communities (except as laborers.)
Yes, sometimes the NYT reports the truth. But even when it does, you need to discover it – it won’t be in the headlines or in the first several paragraphs of text.
