Netanyahu Refuses To Write Op-Ed For New York Times

Posted by | December 17, 2011 21:54 | Filed under: Top Stories

The Israeli prime minister says the New York Times is too anti-Israel and so he won’t write an opinion article.

The unusual public refusal appears to reflect the hardline Israeli government’s increasingly prickly relations with much of the outside world.

In a letter to the Times published in The Jerusalem Post website, Netanyahu adviser Ron Dermer says the prime minister decided to “respectfully decline” penning an opinion piece. He says past op-ed articles in the Times have “vilified” Israel and “constantly distort the positions of our government.”

If you think the New York Times doesn’t present enough of your view, it would seem one way to address that is to have your point of view in the New York Times.
