Israeli campaign against Palestinian terrorists last December brought, as it always did, stories of Israeli war crimes. The New York Times ran a story on Israeli “excessive force and wanton killing,” based entirely on hearsay and rumor. These sorts of stories always turn out to be false, and this one is no exception. An IDF investigation found no evidence that any of the incidents happened. (Via Power Line.)
The striking thing here is that papers like the NYT, after repeatedly being used by anti-Israeli agitators, continue credulously to report their stories, which invariably turn out to be false. One might draw the conclusion that the NYT is more interested in attacking Israel than it is in reporting the truth.
