For the New York Times, it’s the Palestinians who are Suffering

Three Israeli boys have been kidnapped yet the New York Times is still more concerned with Palestinian “suffering.” It’s only been a few days since the IDF launched a major operation to find the three kidnapped Israeli teens Eyal Yifrach, 19, Naftali Frankel, 16, and Gil-ad Shaar, 16.

Fatah Fudges Fall of Fayyadism

Fayyad’s departure needs some serious Palestinian spin. After all, he brought a measure of sorely lacking accountability, transparency, and professionalism to the PA. So if you’re one of the money-hungry hawks who pushed out Fayyad, how do you explain away Fayyad’s resignation to unhappy donors? That’s easily done. The West made Fayyad look like a
