Netanyahu to ‘New York Times’: Take a hike (h/t @allahpundit):

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is refusing to pen an op-ed piece for The New  York Times, signaling the degree to which he is fed up with the influential  newspaper’s editorial policy on Israel.

In a letter to the Times obtained  by The Jerusalem Post on Thursday, Netanyahu’s senior adviser Ron Dermer – in  response to the paper’s request that Netanyahu write an op-ed – wrote that the  prime minister would “respectfully decline.”

Dermer made clear that this  had much to do with the fact that 19 of the paper’s 20 op-ed pieces on Israel  since September were negative.

Ironically, the one positive piece was  written by Richard Goldstone – chairman of the UN’s Goldstone Commission Report – defending Israel against charges of apartheid.

“We wouldn’t want to be  seen as ‘Bibiwashing’ the op-ed page of The New York Times,” Dermer said, in  reference to a piece called “Israel and Pinkwashing” from November. In that  piece, a City University of New York humanities professor lambasted Israel for,  as Dermer wrote, “having the temerity to champion its record on gay  rights.”

That piece, he wrote, “set a new bar that will be hard for you  to lower in the future.”

Dermer’s letter came a day after NYT columnist  Thomas Friedman wrote that the resounding ovation Netanyahu received in Congress  when he spoke there in May had been “bought and paid for by the Israel  lobby.”
