‘NYT’ glorifies an Israeli war crime, with reporting by AIPAC’s friend Bergman

Here we go again. The New York Times just ran a long, gee-whiz article about an Israeli war crime — the murder of an Iranian scientist inside Iran last year– penned by its Israeli security expert, Ronen Bergman. “The Scientist and the A.I.-Assisted Remote-Control Killing Machine“, by Ronen Bergman and Farnaz Fassihi is filled with awe-inspiring details of the methods Israel employed to kill Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, a top Iranian nuclear scientist, at the wheel of his car outside Tehran last November 27.

The killing was of course an act of war, and one aimed at destroying the Iran deal for good in the last weeks of the Trump administration. The European Union condemned the killing at the time: “This is a criminal act and runs counter to the principle of respect for human rights the EU stands for.”

The Times article barely considers the criminal/immoral/politicized nature of the murder of a scientist and professor. It focuses on Israel’s amazing ingenuity, remote triggering and facial recognition capabilities, and its smuggling into Iran of a Belgian machine gun. The sinister aspects of this undertaking go unexamined, though many of these methods were surely tested on Palestinians living under apartheid.
