‘NY Times’ and ‘Washington Post’ have still said nothing about B’Tselem’s finding a month ago that Israel is an ‘apartheid regime’

One month after one of Israel’s leading human rights organizations declared that the country is ruled by an “apartheid” state, liberal Zionists in the U.S. are breathing more easily. The New York Times and the Washington Post have still published nothing on the landmark finding by the human rights group B’Tselem, nor have any of their editorial writers or main columnists chimed in.

Liberal Zionists can relax. With the apartheid designation still a secret to most Americans, groups like J Street don’t have to explain why they still oppose the nonviolent global campaign for Boycott Divestment Sanctions (BDS).

Media elsewhere did report B’Tselem’s finding that Israel maintains “a regime of Jewish supremacy from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.” The British Guardian ran an article the day the report appeared, and followed it with an Op-Ed by the human rights group’s quotable (Jewish) leader, Hagai El-Ad. Haaretz, in Israel, was not afraid to cover the report promptly, and followed with at least 2 opinion pieces, by Ilana Hammerman and Gideon Levy.
