Ambassador Dermer: NY Times Has Increased Anti-Semitism

In an interview Tuesday on Mark Levin’s radio show, Israel’s U.S. ambassador Ron Dermer said The New York Times “attempts to demonize Israel” have contributed to increased anti-Semitism.

“The New York Times will sometimes write against — they’ll do an editorial — against anti-Semitism,” said Dermer. “As if, if you’re going to demonize the one and only Jewish state week after week, month after month, year after year, and not expect that to lead to an increase in antisemitism, they’re kidding themselves…

“The New York Times is a paper that calls on political leaders to not contribute to a climate of hate. What have they done for Israel? I don’t think that they have fully come to grips with how they have contributed so much to the problem,” he added.
