A Letter to the New York Times…and J-Wire

A J-Wire reader based in the U.S. has sent us a letter submitted to the New York Times on the recent murder of an IDF soldier in Israel…

As one of your US subscribers, who has also visited OZ, for pleasure 14 times, I forward a letter I sent to the New York Times, in response to their article on the murder of the IDF soldier, on a bus.


Attack on Soldier Worsens Tensions with Palestinians

As concerns this article published in the Times, in print and online, November 14, 2013, I might ask why, under any circumstances, you would publish a photo of the killer’s mother and neighbors? Her son allegedly stabbed to death a sleeping 18 year old Israeli soldier, who was traveling to his home, by bus. The assailant was in Israel illegally. There was no photo of the dead soldier’s family.

Is there anything that Israel might do to placate your copywriters and editors to bring even a semblance of balanced coverage?

    Good for you, Steve. Your last question put to the NY Times not only says it all, but shows the present hopelessness of the situation where fair exposure for Israel is concerned.
