NY Times Blames Anti-Semitism on Netanyahu, Trump

Fresh from facing harsh criticism for publishing an anti-Semitic cartoon, The New York Times posted an editorial Sunday suggesting that President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are partly to blame for rising anti-Semitism in Europe.

The editorial decried the “alarming reality that anti-Semitism is sharply on the rise” from both the far right and the far left. But it claimed that Netanyahu “has not helped matters by finding common cause with nationalist leaders like the Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban or President Trump so long as they do not support a Palestinian state.”

As Breitbart’s Joel Pollak notes, “The implication seemed to be that Orban and Trump are antisemites — or that nationalism, by definition, is antisemitic.”
