The NYT has always been a leftist relitively anti Israel rag but this really is stooping low it borders slander. Firstly Bibi has been reaching out to Abbas for yers now, under pressure from Obama maybe but he has been recahing out including going as far as an unconditional 10 month building freeze to entice Abbas into talks which he even then rejected. Now Bibi negotiates a deal with Hamas to get Gilad back but the NYT is moaning Bibi didn't do a deal with Abbas conveniently forgetting to mention the little fact that Hamas were holding Gilad not Fatah. I was very much against this deal because it will encourgage more kidnappings and there are killers on the streets now but the reason the NYT is criticising it is disgusting and I hope even the the pro palestinian posters on here will also express disgust at this article the NYT pretends is journalism.
