The New York Times came to the defense of the Muslim Brotherhood in the wake of the news that the Trump Administration was planning to designate the group as a terrorist organization.

In a breathtakingly disingenuous article, the Times omits fact after fact in its claim the Brotherhood is a “missionary” group that eschewed violence for decades.

Clarion Project has documented the decades of violent activities by the Brotherhood, both inside and outside Egypt (where it originated) and in America, where one of its groups was convicted in the largest terror-financing case in U.S. history.

On July 8, 2013, while Obama was president, then White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said, “We also condemn the explicit calls to violence made by the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Yet 2014, the Obama administration rejected a request to designate the organization as a terrorist group, claiming the group was non-violent. “We have not seen credible evidence that the Muslim Brotherhood has renounced its decades-long commitment to non-violence,” the White House said.

 Obama Label of Brotherhood as Non-Violent Patently False

Watch Clarion Project National Security Analyst and Shillman Fellow Ryan Mauro explain why the Muslim Brotherhood should be designated as a terrorist organization and how already the debate over this issue has become toxic:

Meanwhile, The New York Times issued a second “apology” for printing an anti-Semitic cartoon worthy of being published in the Nazi-era paper Der Sturmer.

In course of a worldwide outcry over the publication of the cartoon, which depicted a dog with the head of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, wearing a Star of David leading a blind President Trump wearing a Jewish skullcap, the Times managed to publish yet another anti-Semitic cartoon. The paper has since announced that it suspended the publication of all future syndicated cartoons.

As with first “apology,” the second one also failed to mention that publishing the cartoon was morally wrong, not to mention patently false. The first apology merely called cartoon “offensive” and noted that the paper had made an “error in judgment for publishing it.” The second apology labeled the cartoon “appalling and bigoted” but ultimately threw a large part of the blame on Trump for riling up anti-Semitism in the country.
