Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This is even more perplexing when you consider the fact that outlets such as the New York Times completely ignored recent revelations that the Washington Post's new Jerusalem correspondent is the wife of a Zionist PR tycoon Michael Eglash that regularly lobbies for the Jewish state.
Irrelevant antisemitic conspiratorial sop?

It's part of the official role by Israel and AIPAC in support of a military strike on Syria by President Obama. Israel by it's own initiative has become part of the sad story in Syria's civil/sectarian war.

Not really. Major newspapers have always disliked mentioning their competitors, unless there was really no alternative, and this, relatively minor point, is not one of these. Attacking the NYT for not mentioning that their own Israel reporter has a son in the IDF is valid criticism, but this example is, as Migeru said, irrelevant antisemitic conspiratorial sop.
