Biases of the Times
The thing about the religious bigotry and political bias and ethnic/racial preference of the New York Times is such that any Israeli--no matter what he/she does in life--can say anything and write anything and be published without any editing in that paper. An Arab could not be published, and any submission by an Arab would get edited down so bad that they are capable of turning George Habash's submission into a submission indistinguishable from a submission by Muhammad Dahlan or Sari Nusseibeh. That is why I urge Arabs to not submit contributions to this enemy paper. Look at this vapid and lousy piece by this Israeli. They can say anything, as in: "Israelis still look back at the attacks by Arab armies in 1948, 1967 and 1973..." Just like that. So Arab armies now attacked Israel in 1967? I wish that was true. I just wish. Forget about politics, is there any history book anywhere in the world in any language that would state that Arab armies struck at Israel first in 1967? In reality, all Arab-Israeli wars were UNFORTUNATELY started by Israel except one. UNFORTUNATELY, the Arabs only started the 1973 war.
