NY Times conceals Israeli support for ISIS

New York Times conceals Israeli support for ISIS terror

Dear Margaret

In your Feb. 12 essay on the “Global expansion” of the NY Times you seem deeply concerned about journalistic integrity and “core Times values.” 

Yet, when I queried you via e-mail on January 22 (and received an automated acknowledgment), as to why the Times suppressed all mention of news concerning Israeli defense minister Moshe Ya'alon stating, on the record on Jan. 19, that he preferred ISIS to rule in Syria —  if it was a choice between that terrorist group and Iran —  the Times ignored my concern about this outrageous concealment of a highly newsworthy statement which denied your readers “the right to know."
