One can really tell that the International Herald Tribune is the sister publication of the New York Times. Like the New York Times, the IHT never saw a liberal it didn’t love or a conservative it didn’t hate – or a fact its editors couldn’t spin.
The Times generally uses the IHT as its international hit man, reserving its own pages to advance the policies of the Democrat Party.
The IHT ran a story entitled “Is Global Rebranding What Israel Needs?” The piece opened by recognizing Israel as the world’s pariah state:
Its sports teams have met hostility and violent protests in Sweden, Spain and Turkey. Mauritania has closed the Israeli Embassy. Relations with Turkey, an important Muslim ally, have suffered severely. A group of top international judges and human rights investigators recently called for an investigation into Israel’s actions in Gaza. “Israel Apartheid Week” drew participants in 54 cities around the world this month, twice the number of last year, according to its organizers. And even in the American Jewish community, albeit in its liberal wing, there is a chill.
