Here is their report on today's "march of the flag" which includes this:
Rising ethnic tensions were underscored in Israel today as violent clashes took place in one of Israel's biggest Arab towns between Jewish ultra-nationalists and local youths. Police dispersed rock-throwing Arab residents of Umm el-Fahm with stun grenades and tear gas in the town, which is close to Israel's boundary with the occupied West Bank. The outbreak of violence took place following a march by right-wing Jews aiming to demonstrate sovereignty over the town, which has a strong Islamic movement.
It mentions MK Michael Ben-Ari of the National Union, Baruch Marzel of Kach, Lieberman and Netanyahu.
And in publishing this:
Jamal Zahalka, an Israeli Arab MP, slammed the Jewish demonstrators as racists. “Racism is not freedom of expression, it’s a criminal act and the law should punish it," he said.
the paper completely misleads its readers.
I left this comment there:
What is not mentioned is that the march was mandated by a High Court of Justice decision and quite legal, as well as fully coordinated with the Police. This article provides the misleading impression that somehow the flag marchers were acting improperly or mischievously.
Neither does the New York Times include that the march was authorized by the court and coordinated with the police, in other words, fully legal.
