New York Times Alters Article To Defend Terrorists

The New York Times is facing backlash after it was discovered that the notoriously anti-Israel outlet had altered an article about the terrorist attacks on Israel over the weekend — changing the word “terrorists” to “gunmen.”

After the horrific attacks over the weekend, many on the left expressed support for the Palestinian terror group Hamas — with some even celebrating the deaths of Israeli civilians.

Meanwhile, others on the left tried to defend Hamas while at the same time denouncing the massacre of civilians — like the New York Times.

In a Tuesday evening article titled “Hamas Leaves Trail of Terror in Israel,” the left-wing outlet initially wrote: “As Israeli soldiers regain control of areas near Gaza that came under attack, they are finding evidence seen in videos and photos and confirmed by witness accounts of the massacre of civilians by Hamas terrorists.”

However, the article was later changed to downplay the attack — changing the word “terrorists” to “gunmen.”

Following backlash on social media, the New York Times once again altered the article — reverting back to using “terrorists” to describe Hamas.

This is not the first time that the left-wing outlet downplayed atrocities. According to The Daily Wire, “In the mid-twentieth century, the Times buried the Holocaust so it didn’t make the front pages, as described in ‘Buried by the Times: The Holocaust and America’s Most Important Newspaper.’”

The New York Times also has a history of antisemitism. In a cartoon published in April 2019, the outlet depicted former President Donald Trump as a blind man being led by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — who was depicted as a dog on a leash with a Star of David collar.

The outlet further attacked Netanyahu in December 2022 after it became likely that he would once again serve as prime minister — publishing an article condemning so-called “ultrareligious and ultranationalist parties” that had gained more support in Israel and declaring that Netanyahu regaining power was a “significant threat to the future of Israel.”

Netanyahu slammed the left-wing outlet in response to the op-ed, which was titled: “The Ideal of Democracy in a Jewish State Is in Jeopardy.”

“After burying the Holocaust for years on its back pages and demonizing Israel for decades on its front pages, the New York Times now shamefully calls for undermining Israel’s elected incoming government,” Netanyahu wrote in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, at the time.
