CAMERA Op-Ed: How The New York Times Demonizes the Israeli People

If “demonize” means “to try to make someone or a group of people seem as if they are evil,” as the Cambridge Free says, can a murderer be demonized?

To help readers understand the term, the dictionary provides the following as an example of its usage: “The Nazis used racist propaganda in an attempt to demonize the Jews.”

But can the Nazi killer himself be demonized? What about the cold-blooded murderer of an elderly Holocaust survivor?

More specifically, can Muqdad Salah, the Palestinian who murdered the sleeping 72-year-old Holocaust survivor Israel Tenenbaum, and other convicted Palestinian killers of innocent Israeli civilians, young and old, be “[d]emonized as terrorists by Israelis?”
