New York Times Celebrates Christmas With Hezbollah

A New York Times article about how the blood-drenched terrorists of Hezbollah celebrate Christmas is drawing intense criticism from readers for whitewashing or normalizing the Iranian-backed violent extremist group.

The executive director of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, Robert Satloff, tweeted, “This is really obscene – as if #Hezbollah’s Xmas cheer means anything to the thousands of innocents – #Americans, #Lebanese, #Israelis, #Syrian #Sunni #Muslims, and others – murdered by this bloodthirsty gang over the years.”

A Twitter account belonging to the Times promoted the article by saying, “Even Hezbollah, the Shiite political movement and militia that the United States has branded a terrorist organization, has helped ring in the season in previous years, importing a Santa to Beirut’s southern suburbs to distribute gifts.”

A writer for Tablet, Yair Rosenberg, tweeted, “I guess we now know how many Jews you can murder in cold blood and still get a soft focus profile of your Christmas celebrations in the paper of record. News you can use!”
