NY Times Recognizes Palestinian State

The Palestinian Liberation Organization declared an independent State of Palestine in 1988. Only Arab and Muslim countries recognized it, while about a decade ago, countries in Latin America also chose to recognize it. The United States and much of the western world has refused to recognize such entity, in the hopes that the contours of such state will be negotiated between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

But The New York Times is not waiting for the U.S. government, and has now recognized the entity as a state throughout the paper.

On August 23, 2021, Will Shortz, long-time editor of the crossword puzzle, added a clue which specifically called Palestine an actual country.

This is part of an ongoing initiative of the paper. On April 24, 2021, the Times wrote about “Palestinian East Jerusalem,” which compounded multiple layers of fiction: there hasn’t been an entity called “East Jerusalem” since 1967 and it certainly isn’t part of a State of Palestine.

The New York Times deliberately does not call HAMAS, a U.S. designated foreign terrorist organization, with such designation as it tries to sanitize the genocidal anti-Semitism of the group. The paper is now further breaking with official U.S. foreign policy in recognizing a Palestinian State as it attempts to mainstream the Palestinian narrative to its far-left readership.

  1. Thanks for pointing this out. However, why are you using the term Palestine at all? If it is not a state, what is it? Maybe you can refer to Israel’s territories, but not Palestine. Geographically, there are two Palestines though neither is in the Middle East. There is Palestine, Texas, and Palestine, illinois.

    Have a good week.
