Patrick Kingsley, the British-born Jerusalem Bureau Chief for the New York Times, formerly reported for the Guardian, a paper not known for fidelity to the truth, especially when it comes to Israel. The recent disturbances and fighting in Israel and Gaza have been the perfect opportunity for Kingsley to peddle Guardian-style agitprop to a new set of readers. Kingsley repeats one Palestinian myth after another, and even interviews bigots and Holocaust deniers, giving them space to slander Israel.
With Abbas' cancellation of elections on the pretext that Israel has not said it will permit voting in eastern Jerusalem, some reports mislead on Israel's Oslo-mandated responsibilities concerning Palestinian elections. As for Palestinian electoral responsibilities under Oslo, those simply aren't on the radar.
After Israel arranged to get early access to enough COVID-19 vaccine for its entire population, outlets like the New York Times and human rights groups like Amnesty International mangled international law and the Oslo Accords to argue that Israel must also vaccinate Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza.
About Jesus's birthplace, where the vaccine is less available, New York Times readers would reasonably conclude — wrongly — that, unlike Jerusalem, there were no crowds in churches, no celebrations on the street.
Contrary to The New York Times report, Israeli settlers did not criticize the Trump plan for not "annex[ing] enough Palestinian land." Indeed, the West Bank land in question is disputed and is not currently under Palestinian control, nor was it ever.
