Standards of the New York Times

One stupid speech by an Iranian official warranted a whole article in the New York Times.  I have no problem with that: although the official in question did distinguish between Jews and Zionists in the speech, the distinction is rendered irrelevant when his remarks seems to insult Jews qua Jews, especially with his remarks about Talmud.  But here is my beef/tofu: Israeli officials make regular racist speeches against Arabs (and lately against blacks) and the New York Times would never in a million year devote a small article for that.
