How token Arabs get hired at the New York Times: the case of Hassan Fattah. When token Arab get hired, by the New Republic, CNN, or the New York Times, they have to try harder. I don’t mean that they have to work harder, no. But they have to try harder to prove their allegiance to the interests of the US empire and to the interests of US-Israeli relations. I really don’t believe that another reporter of the New York Times would use such propaganda line as this one: “For those Arabs who celebrated AmericaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s embrace of the rule of law…” “America’s embrace of the rule of law? Where? In the US? Or in Guantanamo? Or in Iraq? Please enlighten us further, o New York Times correspondent.
