According to Code Pink, the Saturday, June 1, 2019, edition of The New York Times included a “deplorable” full-page ad purchased by Rabbi Shmuel “Shmuley” Boteach which they claim “falsely twists the words of Democrat Representative Rashida Tlaib” to incite hatred against one of the two new anti-Semitic, Islamic terrorist-supporting Muslim members of Congress.
CODE PINK (aka ‘Code Pinko’ – the founder of which, Medea Benjamin, is a Jew and a trust-fund millionaire, was once married to a communist in Cuba) claims that this ad is a dangerous assault on Rashida Tlaib and follows an equally vile ad taken out by Rabbi Shmuley in March 2019 against the other (Jew-hating/America-bashing) Muslim congresswoman Ilhan Omar.
Shmuley funnels “dark money” into attack ads like this that distort the truth and put people’s lives at risk. Shame on the New York Times for running this dishonest ad!
Send a message now to The New York Times telling them that as a leading U.S. newspaper, they have an obligation not to participate in smear campaigns and incitements to hatred, Islamophobia, and violence.
Ask the New York Time to apologize to Rep. Tlaib and the American Muslim community and commit to not selling misleading and hateful ads.
(The New York Times should be commended, for a change, for not censoring a Jewish conservative’s opinion about a woman who poses a threat to Jews in America and the state of Israel)
