The New York Times writes a tribute to Cynthia Ozick without telling readers that she is an unabashed bigot who denied the existence of the Palestinian people

Just two samples of the racism and ignorance of Cynthia Ozick, who received recently a long tribute in the Times:
"When, some years ago, Golda Meir contentiously remarked, "There are no Palestinians," she was historically correct..."
"By replacing history with fantasy, the Palestinians have invented a society unlike any other, where hatred trumps bread. They have reared children unlike any other children, removed from ordinary norms and behaviors."  If this woman wrote those words about blacks or about Jews, there would be pickets outside of the office of the New York Times.  But bigotry and denial of the Palestinian people is considered a respected point of view in US society.
