Addendum: Why the NY Times’s incendiary anti-IDF Tweet will have far greater influence than everything its critics threw back at it


(1) Background: The NY Times’s latest incendiary anti-Israel smear, and the initial push-back

On May 8, 2020 the New York Times posted a Tweet , the opening sentence of which proclaimed:

“The Israeli Defense Ministry’s research-and-development arm is best known for pioneering cutting-edge ways to kill people and blow things up.”

The full Tweet:

“The Israeli Defense Ministry’s research-and-development arm is best known for pioneering cutting-edge ways to kill people and blow things up. Now it’s turning to saving lives.”

The Tweet led to an article by the NYT’s Jerusalem bureau chief, David Halbfinger, the opening sentences of which assert:

The Israeli Defense Ministry’s research-and-development arm is best known for pioneering cutting-edge ways to kill people and blow things up, with stealth tanks and sniper drones among its more lethal recent projects.

But its latest mission is lifesaving. Since March, it has been spearheading a sprawling, high-speed effort to unleash some of the country’s most advanced technologies against an enemy of another kind: Covid-19.

The response to the NYT’s incendiary Tweet and article, from the Israeli government, pro-Israel bloggers and watchdog organizations, was swift. A sampling:

From Dani Dayan, Consul General of Israel in New York:

From Danny Ayalon, former Israeli Ambassador to the US:

From David Harris, CEO of the American Jewish Committee (AJC):

And from Hen Mazzig, who served in the IDF for five years as a humanitarian affairs officer in the Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) unit:

Other notable public figures, pro-Israel activists and journalists also condemned the NY Times, on its Tweet thread, and beyond:

NYT Criticized for Tweeting That Israeli Defense Ministry Pioneers ‘Ways to Kill People and Blow Things Up’ – Jewish Journal

The New York Times Isn’t Even Pretending Anymore – Israellycool

A particularly substantive, evidence-based rebuttal to the NY Times’s smear came from the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA), which has also relentlessly exposed Halbfinger’s and the NY Times’s long-term pattern of inciting worldwide hatred against Israel and the IDF, based on lies and egregious distortions:

NY Times Frames Iron-Dome Researchers as Killers and Destroyers, by Rikki Hollander and Gilead Ini, CAMERA, May 8, 2020. Excerpt:

Yes, Israeli defense research has focused on developing new technology to locate and “blow up” tunnels built by terrorists to infiltrate and carry out large-scale terror attacks in Israel or kidnap Israelis.

Yes, research has focused on developing a complex system of underground and underwater barriers along its border with Gaza to prevent infiltration of terrorists into Israel.

And yes, research has focused on developing new drones and ways to protect buildings and buses from attack, pinpointing the threat to “kill” an assailant without harming innocent bystanders.

The last item in CAMERA’s rebuttal is worth particular attention, as there are video examples of it, that provide irrefutable proof of the IDF’s commitment to avoid any civilian casualties, while defending Israel from terrorists.


(2) Is it really possible that the NY Times’s editors and Halbfinger were not aware of the extraordinary lengths that the IDF goes to avoid harming civilians, when it is forced to defend itself from terrorist attacks?

Background

For those who are unaware of it, the Islamist terrorist groups that rule the Gaza Strip, Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) — both of which claim they have a divine obligation to wipe out the Jews, and steal the state of Israel — are notorious for:

  • Storing and firing rockets from civilian areas, including homes, mosques, schools and hospitals
  • Using civilians as human shields

Here is live footage of this phenomenon, during a CNN segment with a France 24 reporter:

Here are more video examples, captured by Israeli drones, of Hamas firing rockets into Israel from atop or beside civilian structures:

Hamas’s and PIJ’s tactic of firing unguided rockets from behind human shields, into civilian areas of a neighboring nation, are both war crimes, under the Geneva Convention, as acknowledged by the UN, Amnesty International, and other watchdogs.

Here, for example, is video taken by Gaza civilians, of Hamas militants beating men and women who refused the terror gang’s orders to ignore the IDF warnings, that it was soon to attack nearby weapons storage or rocket firing positions, and urged them to evacuate the area, to avoid any harm coming to them:

https://www.facebook.com/isramedia/videos/665400310202061/


Finally, after long denying that it forces Gaza civilians to act as human shields, Hamas publicly admitted it — and explicitly told Palestinians to ignore the IDF’s warnings that facilities near them, containing weapons or command-control centers, are about to be attacked, so they can evacuate the area

The IDF’s moral code, which dictates that it protect civilians — even in enemy enclaves and nations — gave rise to the technology and tactics that the NY Times, and Halbfinger, ignored

At its inception, the IDF developed a written doctrine, based on Jewish theology, that requires it to protect non-combatants when Israel is forced to defend itself. The following are quotes from the IDF’s “Purity Of Arms” treatise, and the broader “Spirit Of The IDF” (Hebrew; English) that contains it, both of which are taught to every soldier and officer, from day one onward:

“The soldier shall make use of his weaponry and power only for the fulfillment of the mission and solely to the extent required; he will maintain his humanity even in combat. The soldier shall not employ his weaponry and power in order to harm non-combatants or prisoners of war, and shall do all he can to avoid harming their lives, body, honor and property.”

“The ‘IDF Spirit’ is the IDF’s corporate identity card, which should underpin each and every soldier’s operations within the IDF, regular service and reserve service. The ‘IDF Spirit’ and its rules of action are the IDF’s code of ethics. The ‘IDF Spirit’ will be used by the IDF, its soldiers, commanders, units and corps in designing their operating patterns. According to the ‘IDF Spirit,’ they will conduct, educate and criticize themselves and others.”

Each active-duty and reserve soldier and officer of the IDF is required to carry a condensed version of this doctrine with them, 24-7:

“The Spirit of the IDF,” pocket-sized version, containing the “Purity of Arms” treatise, is carried by every IDF soldier, officer and reservist. Learn more here.

That basic principle has guided all IDF actions since the rebirth of Israel as a nation, in 1948.


The IDF’s application of its “Purity of Arms” doctrine (a) when it is forced to defend Israel — and (b) to protect the civilians whom Palestinian terror groups use as human shields

Because of the double-war crimes that Hamas and PIJ routinely commit against Israel, however — and their explicitly-stated belief that any Muslim non-combatant who is killed during jihad becomes a “martyr” — the IDF developed extraordinary means by which to protect civilians when it must act to protect itself, even in enemy enclaves and nations. These include:

Calling, sending text messages to, and/or emailing (in Arabic) residents near buildings that are are about to be struck (because they are housing rockets or other weapons, or those who are ordering them to be fired), and advising them to evacuate the area

Dropping Arabic-language leaflets over the building/s about to be struck, urging civilians in the area to leave the area

Dropping empty shell casings atop target buildings that are about to be struck, a tactic called “roof-knocking,” as a last-ditch means to advise residents that they must evacuate the area

Here is video of the Israeli Air Force (IAF) dropping thousands of leaflets atop a building that is about to be struck, because it was being used to fire unguided rockets into Israeli cities:

Given the fact that the NY Times and other major media sources published stories about the extraordinary, high-tech efforts that Israel devotes to prevent civilian casualties in Gaza (and elsewhere), it is inconceivable that it, or Halbfinger were unaware of this fact:

Israel Warns Gaza Targets by Phone and Leaflet – New York Times

Israel Drops Leaflets Warning of Northern Gaza Airstrikes – NBC News

Israel drops leaflets warning Gaza residents to evacuate ahead of strikes – CNN


In fact, Israel’s “roof knocking” practice is so effective at saving Gaza civilians’ lives that the US military adopted it:

US Warplanes Adopt Israeli ‘Knock on The Roof’ Tactic – Military.com. Excerpt:

The U.S. has adopted an Israeli tactic called a “knock operation,” or “roof knocking,” before airstrikes in the overall effort to limit civilian casualties in the campaign against ISIS, a U.S. military planner for Iraq and Syria said Tuesday.

U.S. warplanes used the tactic on April 5 in an airstrike on an ISIS “cash center” in the northwestern Iraqi city of Mosul that was only partially successful in avoiding killing civilians, said Air Force Maj. Peter Gersten, the deputy commander for operations and intelligence for Combined Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve.

Gersten said U.S. intelligence and aerial surveillance had determined that the building was used by the ISIS’ “emir of finance” to dole out money and possibly housed as much as $150 million in cash. “We also watched occasionally a female and her children” coming and going from the building, Gersten said.


A powerful summary of the IDF’s humanitarian practices and moral principles, by Col. Richard Kemp

One particularly relevant insight on Hamas’s tactics, and Israel’s efforts to avoid causing harm to any civilian, comes from Col. Richard Kemp, a retired UK military commander who led all British forces in Afghanistan after the 9/11 attacks, and has closely studied Israel’s efforts to defend itself against Islamist terror.

In this short (5:34) video, Col. Kemp explains the key moral and operational differences between the IDF and Hamas, PIJ, and other Islamist terror gangs:

See more videos featuring Col. Kemp speaking of his respect for the IDF, and the moral doctrines that guide its actions, here.

Col. Kemp’s view is substantiated in numerous accounts by news certain organizations and watchdog groups:

Telegraph Reporter Reveals Lengths Israel Goes to in Effort to Avoid Harming Palestinian Civilians in Gaza Airstrikes – The Algemeiner

‘Knock on the roof’: This is how it’s done; Video filmed at the Bureij refugee camp shows small mortar hitting roof of building to warn inhabitants of imminent attack – YNet

Lastly, here is IDF Lt. Col. Peter Lerner (now retired), describing its efforts to avoid harming civilians, when defending Israel against terrorists who employ human shields as a consistent strategy:

None of the above means of preventing civilian casualties would be possible without the IDF’s research-and-development arm.


(3) Is it really possible that they were not aware of the IDF’s legendary humanitarianism and benevolence, even to nations and terrorists that are sworn to Israel’s destruction?

As another gesture of benevolence to its neighbors, the IDF, with support from its research-and-development arm, routinely provides life-saving medical care to those who are sworn to destroy Israel. This includes the families of the leaders of terrorist gangs, such as Hamas and Fatah:

Hamas leader’s daughter treated in Israeli hospital – The Telegraph (UK)

Mahmoud Abbas’s wife undergoes surgery in Israel; Doctors operate on Palestinian leader’s spouse over the weekend at medical center near Tel Aviv – Times Of Israel

The IDF also provides critical medical aid to Syrian soldiers and civilians, via military field hospitals set up along Israel’s northern border:

Saving their sworn enemy: Heartstopping footage shows Israeli commandos rescuing wounded men from Syrian warzone – but WHY are they risking their lives for Islamic militants? – Daily Mail (UK)

7,000 Syrians were treated in military clinics and another 5,000 in civilian hospitals under Operation Good Neighbor – and it helped secure Israel’s borders – Jerusalem Post

Haifa hospital’s pioneering treatment lets Syrian war victim eat, speak again; Titanium jaw created by Israeli dental tech firm on Israeli-developed 3D printer – Times of Israel

Here is a video interview of Lt. Col. (R) Eyal Dror, with the World Jewish Congress, regarding Operation Good Neighbor, in which IDF provided critical aid to Syrians in need — including soldiers:

The IDF’s benevolent actions in these regards are another aspect of its moral principles, and a key Talmudic doctrine, as paraphrased by the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum:

Why was man created alone? Is it not true that the creator could have created the whole of humanity? But man was created alone to teach you that whoever kills one life kills the world entire, and whoever saves one life saves the world entire.

None of Israel’s efforts to aid those in neighboring, hostile nations, would be possible without the IDF’s research-and-development arm.


(4) Is it really possible that they were not aware of the life-saving work the IDF’s laboratories perform, to prevent terrorists from penetrating its soil, perpetrating attacks, and causing mass civilian casualties?

For many years, Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) have been taking the humanitarian aid money that Western nations donate to the Gaza Strip, intended for food, medical care, etc., and instead spent it on building tunnels into Israel. The purpose of these tunnels are to:

  • Enable Islamist terrorists to infiltrate Israeli land
  • Smuggle weapons to terrorists in the Palestinian-governed territories
  • Kidnap Israeli soldiers or civilians, which they hold for ransom, to exchange for convicted terrorists

Hamas is also notorious for using child labor to build these “terror tunnels”; at least 160 Gaza children have been killed in the process, due to suffocation, or structural collapse.

In order to save the lives of both Israelis — and Gaza’s children — the IDF’s research laboratories have worked to develop means by which to detect these terror tunnels, and blow them up, before they can be used.

Here is a short video that describes the IDF’s efforts in this regard:

Other work being done at the IDF’s research laboratories includes:

Developing means to build blast-resistant buildings and vehicles, to help minimize the civilian casualties from terror strikes and natural disasters:

“In Ben-Gurion University’s shock wave laboratory, professors Oren Sadot and Gabi Ben-Dor create shock and blast waves to study their interactions with buses, helicopters, buildings, and home interiors. By understanding the properties of shock waves, they hope to develop structures and technologies to protect buildings and vehicles from explosives and shrapnel. To create shock and blast waves, their use either chambers that can exert a strong, quick pressure on a material—which they can then measure using high-speed photography and pressure gages—or a high-voltage capacitor that discharges the equivalent of 1/10th a gram of TNT in 1 microsecond, a millionth of a second.”

Developing more effective drones, with which to save lives of Israelis, and the human shields that terrorist groups surround themselves with, in Gaza and beyond:

“Israel’s Unmanned Aerial Vehicle squadron uses this military drone, The Heron, to keep watch on Lebanon, the West Bank, and Gaza (UAV officers cannot comment on any other locations the drones are currently deployed to). Israel uses UAVs for real-time reconnaissance during battle, escorting ground forces, weeding out terrorists in civilian areas, scanning the sea for unidentified vessels, and hunting for rocket and mortar launches. The Heron is capable of being outfitted with weapons.”

(5) Is it really possible that they were not aware that the IDF provides emergency aid to far-away nations after natural disasters — often faster, and on a more comprehensive basis, than nations many times its size?

When natural disasters strike, anywhere in the world (outside of dictatorships), certain nations routinely rush aid to the afflicted peoples, in the form of medical supplies and personnel, food, temporary shelters, etc.

Israel, however, is one of the world’s tiniest nations — yet it has repeatedly been among the first on the front lines of disasters, not just with supplies, but with world-class IDF field hospitals and medical professionals, cutting-edge medicines, and search-and-rescue teams, often arriving before other, much larger nations.

Here are but a few of the instances in which the IDF was acclaimed for its speed and performance:

Israel’s aid team to Nepal among the largestTimes of Israel, April 29, 2015. Excerpt:

Israel’s aid team to the earthquake-battered Himalayan nation of Nepal is one of the largest in manpower of any international aid mission.

Over 250 doctors and rescue personnel were part of an IDF delegation that landed Tuesday in the Nepalese capital, Kathmandu, in the wake of Saturday’s magnitude-7.8 earthquake that devastated large swaths of the mountainous country, killing at least 5,000 and leaving some 8,000 wounded and tens of thousands seeking shelter and food.

The Israeli group set up a field hospital with 60 beds that began operations on Wednesday in coordination with the local army hospital.

Nepal’s Prime Minister Sushil Koirala and the Nepalese Army’s chief of staff visited the field hospital to attend its opening ceremony.

Israel rushes to Haiti’s aid; Just a day following the devastating earthquake in Haiti, 220 Israelis, comprising teams of doctors and rescue and relief workers, are already on their way, Israel21C, January 14, 2010. Excerpt:

Among the Israeli teams on their way to provide humanitarian aid in Haiti is a medical team of 12 from IsraAID, an early response relief group that springs into action after natural disasters, as well as some 200 others called on by Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

On Thursday afternoon, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued this announcement: “Israel is doing all in its power to help the people of Haiti cope with the disaster in their country. A 220-person delegation, headed by Ministry of Foreign Affairs officials, will leave this evening for Port-Au-Prince on two Boeing 747 jets leased from El Al by the IDF.

“The relief package includes a Home Front Command field hospital and rescue unit, as well as teams from Magen David Adom and Israel Police.”

On Wednesday, Israel’s prime minister ordered the country’s Defense Ministry, Foreign Ministry and Public Security Ministry officials to gather a team to help the Caribbean nation deal with its humanitarian crisis.

None of Israel’s efforts to aid those in far-away nations after natural disasters would be possible without the IDF’s research-and-development arm.


(6) Conclusion: The NY Times’s editors and Halbfinger apparently assumed that the general public would (a) blindly accept the lie behind its incendiary anti-IDF libel — and (b) never discover the reality

Let us revisit the specific wording of the NY Times’ May 8, 2020 Tweet — which was pulled, verbatim, from Halbfinger’s “news” story:

“The Israeli Defense Ministry’s research-and-development arm is best known for pioneering cutting-edge ways to kill people and blow things up.”

How plausible is it that neither the NYT, nor Halbfinger, were aware at the time they published this Tweet and story, of the IDF’s record of doing the following, much of which is possible only because of its research-and-development arm?

  • Precisely targeting with lethal ordinance only those who are waging war on Israel, and who are presenting direct threats to its people
  • Providing advance warnings to precisely-targeted civilians, via text, email, phone calls and flyers, all in Arabic, to so these non-combatants can evacuate the vicinity of structures being used by terrorists, that about to be attacked
  • The medical care that the IDF provides to people from enemy nations, even to the families of the terrorists that are sworn to destroy it

All of the facts and evidence cited in this report are available in the public domain. The New York Times is the supposed world standard of objective journalism, with its own Jerusalem bureau. It has hundreds of researchers and editors on its payroll.

It is SaveTheWest’s position that:

(1) It is implausible that the New York Times and Halbfinger were unaware of these facts, at the time they published this story, and Tweet.

(2) It is far more likely that they assumed that the general public would (a) blindly accept the lie behind its incendiary anti-IDF libel — and (b) never discover the reality.

(3) The New York Times’s acts and omissions documented in this incident are a profound betrayal of its stated mission, which is, “We seek the truth and help people understand the world.”

Further, as the watchdog group Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA) has documented in significant detail, both the New York Times and Halbfinger have long histories of inciting worldwide hatred against Israel and the IDF, based on lies and egregious distortions — and, given that evidence, this incident is apparently the latest in that pattern.

To remove any doubt as to the veracity of our position, SaveTheWest will be sending this report, with a request for comment, to the New York Times’s Executive Editor, Dean Baquet (bio), and David Halbfinger (bio), the “journalist” who wrote this story.

We will publish any reply we receive.

(1) Share the summary of this report with others, via email, social media, and beyond

(2) Express your views to the New York Times’s Executive Editor, Dean Baquet, and David Halbfinger

Here are some means to contact them. Please be polite and concise, however you wish to reach out to them.

  • Via phone: You can leave a voice message at: 844-NYTNEWS (844-698-6397)
  • Mailing address: The New York Times Company, 620 Eighth Avenue, New York, NY 10018

Addendum: Why the NY Times’s incendiary anti-IDF Tweet will have far greater influence than everything its critics threw back at it

The push-back against the NY Times’ latest blood libel against Israel & the IDF is the equivalent of throwing sand at a tidal wave. This section explains why.

Those who are knowledgeable of the facts and context regarding the issues presented in this report may think that the NY Times’s and Halbfinger’s latest incendiary smear against Israel and the IDF has been thoroughly refuted.

And from their limited perspective, it has been. They may be on CAMERA’s mailing list, and follow the social media accounts of the pro-Israel figures featured in Section (1), who pushed back against the NY Times.

Outside of these “insiders'” perspective, however, that lone Tweet is going to have far greater impact than everything its critics threw back at it, for several reasons:

(1) The vast majority of people who saw the push-back against it are already in “the choir.” Meaning, those who are already aware of the reality with Israel and the IDF, and are staunch defenders of both.

(2) They may not be aware of how many people — particularly the young — who don’t have their knowledge, saw that Tweet as coming from the supposed world standard of “objective journalism,” and will likely believe it is based in reality.

(3) As Winston Churchill said, “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.” He said that long before social media, and the sophisticated, entrenched, 24-7, all-but-unchallenged anti-Israel propaganda machine.

(4) The explosion and mainstreaming of anti-Israel and anti-IDF propaganda in N. America’s and W. Europe’s “news,” “educational” and diplomatic institutions has caused many functional but misinformed people — particularly the young — to almost reflexively believe the worst about the Jewish state’s military forces, often through nothing more than a Tweet headline.  This is even in America’s elementary schools.

(5) Those who doubt the impact of (3) and (4) may be unaware of the legitimacy of the following facts:

    • 2008: A survey of 15 European nations showed Israel is viewed as the #1 “threat to world peace”; these findings mirror a 2003 survey of Europeans, which produced the same result.
    • 2014: A worldwide survey reveals that Israel is viewed as one of the world’s “biggest threats to peace,” on par with Iran and North Korea.
    • 2019: Between 2018-2019, Americans’ support for Israel dropped more than in the past decade.
    • 2016: More Americans who identify as “liberal Democrats” support Palestinians than Israelis; Millennials support Israelis over Palestinians by a 43%-27% margin, the narrowest range of any demographic. According to one researcher, “The future of America no longer believe that Israel shares their values.”

I submit that the key question to ask is: Now, four months after the NY Times’ insidious Tweet was published, what would happen if we put 100,000 Americans into an arena, and asked for a show of hands, as to the following questions:

(1) “How many of you believe this Tweet to be roughly true?”

(2) “How many of you believe that the IDF’s research arm is, actually, a world leader in ‘pioneering cutting-edge ways’ to save innocent lives, and deliver vital humanitarian assistance, even to the families of its enemies?”

Based on my research and observations, I believe the count would be about 99,970-30 in favor of (1). Not because of the facts; to the contrary, it is precisely because of the inefficacy, and in some cases, sheer betrayal, in terms of the most influential “Jewish” and pro-Israel organizations in America refusing to stand up to the NY Times and this overall fake, anti-Semitic narrative.

See more information on how rapidly and widely anti-Israel and anti-IDF propaganda is spreading on this page, at a new website I am creating, ILoveIsrael.me, to help expose the reality of what Israel is, and does, to improve human life and advance peace, tolerance and security for civilized peoples.

If you’d like to help combat this metastasizing, unchallenged lies about Israel, a good place to start is in standing up to the NY Times; see Section (7) for information on how to do so.

  1. First, it must be very clear that CNN, NYT, MSNBC & others Mass-Media are the propaganda units of the global financial capital and of course their servants – the Democrats. Ordinary journalism, news, etc. is a cover and an opportunity to hold the attention of naive followers. who remembered real Mass Media and continue to think until they are finally disappointed

    Second, Jews will always be guilty, but good is still necessary. This is a classic of life. Jews will always be guilty because of the peculiarity of their characters and genetics, and excessive orthodoxy with elements of shocking, as well as because of the peculiarities of the human mind. in which there is a lot of evil, envy and other huge number of negative features.
