THE anti-Israel Isabel Keshner of The New York Times still denying Istraeli Sovereignty

Reader comment on item: The US-Israel Honeymoon May Not Last

Submitted by Ludvikus (United States), Mar 8, 2018 at 15:03

The problem for isn't the honeymoon caused by President Trump of New York
but the Liberal Jewish Establishment voiced by the New York Times.

Below is a Link to Ms. Isabel expressing the view that parts of Palestine aren't part of Israel.
As should be remembered The League of Nations Mandate for Palestine's terms were finalized and unanimously approved on July 24, 1922, by the Council of the League of Nations, which at that time comprised 51 countries. Thereafter, by 1945, at the end of WWII, 6,000,000 Jews were "exterminated" by
the Nazis, before the possibility of emigrating to Israel, with the Palestinian Mufti of Jerusalem sympathetically looking on. Israel subsequently achieved Independence, not by United Nations Security Council, or General Assembly, resolutions, but by Revolutionary and Defensive War against the neighboring Arab Armies.

Now here's Ms. Isabel spreading effectively the myth that Israel must obey "international" consensus
to secure its lawful rights, either by "obeying' the UN Security Council, or the UN General Assembly, or the UN Human Rights body, or the votes of 193 UN Countries, of which only the Dominican Republic, under dictator Trujillo, gave refuge or shelter to Jews fleeing from the Gas Chambers and crematoria of Adolf Hitler.

"New U.S. Embassy May Be in Jerusalem, but Not in Israel"
"Isabel Kershner is a correspondent in Jerusalem for The New York Times covering Israeli and Palestinian politics and society, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and diplomatic efforts to resolve it."
"Since joining the Times' Jerusalem bureau in 2007 she has covered Israel's wars with Gaza, the failed efforts at peacemaking and the often fraught, internal divisions and culture wars that shape the lives of Israelis and Palestinians. These include the struggles over the land in the West Bank; the Palestinian political schism; and Israel's religious battles within itself and the Jewish world, including the case of a gutsy octogenarian woman who sued El Al, Israel's national airline, to establish new, non-discriminatory guidelines for seat switching to accommodate ultra-Orthodox male passengers.
A fluent Hebrew speaker with working Arabic, she has been reporting on both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian divide since 1990, previously working for The Jerusalem Report magazine. She is the author of "Barrier: The Seam of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict" (Palgrave Macmillan 2005). Born and raised in Manchester, England, she graduated from Oxford University with a degree in Oriental Studies."
