The New York Times' Jerusalem Bureau Chief, Isabel Kershner, is one of a long line of Israeli/pro-Israeli propagandists (Thomas Friedman, Steven Erlanger, Ethan Bronner, Jodi Rudoren).
Our problem is that, in the absence of Fairfax having their own, half-way decent Middle East correspondent, Fairfax readers are expected to put up with the rubbish dished out by Kershner & Co. Either that, or similarly skewed reporting from The Washington Post.
Here, for example, is Kershner' outrageous euphemism for Israel's ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians by Israeli terror gangs in 1948:
"The organisers said [the Great Return March] was intended to raise international awareness of the long-standing blockade of the isolated and impoverished coastal enclave, imposed by Israel and Egypt, and to support the Palestinian demand to return to homes lost in 1948, in what is now Israel." (Israel 'did what had to be done', New York Times/Sydney Morning Herald, 3/4/18)
Some of us may lose our house keys, but the Palestinians are apparently the only people in history to have lost their houses.
