Michael Oren: American Jewish journalists lead media’s anti-Israeli assaultIn new book, former envoy Michael Oren claims antagonism towards Benjamin Netanyahu akin to historic hatred of Jews.
By Chemi Shalev, HAARETZ
Israel’s former ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren, claims that Jewish journalists are largely responsible for American media’s anti-Israel coverage and the “double standard” it applies in its coverage of the Jewish state. Oren also writes that the antagonism towards Netanyahu shown by Jewish journalists such as Thomas Friedman and Leon Wieseltier resembles historic hatred of Jews.
Oren’s new book, “Ally” is due to be released early next week but is already garnering headlines for its harsh condemnation of President Obama and his policies towards Israel.
