It’s official: the LA Times hates Israel
That’s definitely the feeling out here.
I wrote two weeks ago about how I found it surprising that the LA Times had given a platform to a Hamas leader on its op-ed page. Then in Friday’s Jewish Journal, Tamar Sternthal complained about the same op-ed, asking why the Times neglected to mention that Mousa Abu Marzook had been indicted in 2004 in the U.S. on racketeering and money-laundering charges.
And in yesterday’s Opinion section of the Times, rabbis Marvin Hier and Abraham Cooper of the Simon Wiesenthal Center said it was “unconscionable” that the Times had given a soapbox to Hamas.
