I visited New York less than a year after the beginning of the Second Islamic War (2001). Peace marches were beginning to grow as America prepared for war in the middle east.
I have many friends in New York who always seemed fairly reasonable people. I noticed that no efforts were being made to generate peace activists in NY. They said it was in deference to the Twin Towers attack. But, and this is important, they unanimously agreed that organizing peace activists should be done in NY, because they and their friends were anti-war regardless of the Twin Towers. Strike One.
I stopped subscribing to the NYTimes in the mid-1990s and stopped reading it in the late 1990s. The first reason was because the Lefty bias was so strong it was offensive. The second reason was the anti-Israel bias in every story. The second reason became the first. The New York Times became a beacon of Jew hate. It is filled with Jew hate vitriol every day.
The NYTimes survives for only one reason. The Jews in Manhattan are the base of its subscriptions. Strike Two.
Recently, the NY Metropolitan Opera felt so comfortable with the pervasive Jew hate in New York City that it produced a Third Reich Jew hate opera: The Happy Murder of an Innocent Jew in a Wheelchair. (Klinghoffer). To understand this issue read Alan Dershowitz's description of the opera. Most importantly, read his description of the protest crowd outside the opera house. Pathetic. A few thousand people at most. Strike Three.
New York City is the American home of Jew hate. You can still wear a yarmulka in much of the City. But not for long.
