Skip to comments.Ted Cruz rips New York Times for acting as 'propaganda arm' for Hamas

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, charged on the Senate floor Thursday that the New York Times and other media outlets have been acting as a propaganda arm for Hamas by writing that Israeli troops were killing innocent Palestinians at a protest, and downplaying the fact that many were violent and threatening to kill Israelis.
We can count on global media elites acting as little more than propaganda arms, for Hamas and other terrorists, and no week has that been more evident than this week, Cruz said. The media has been more than happy to oblige Hamas propaganda needs. Reporters, celebrity talking heads, and members of our political establishment have faithfully and enthusiastically parroted the Hamas line.
Cruz said the New York Times did not describe that the people protesting on Monday were violent Hamas terrorists whose goal was to cross the Gaza border and kill Jews celebrating the move of the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
He also indicated, that it was intentionally misleading readers into believing Jews were firing at innocent, unarmed Palestinian civilians engaging in protests.
The New York Times headline: Israel Kills Dozens at Gaza Border as U.S. Embassy Opens in Jerusalem. One takes from the coverage apparently poor, innocent, unarmed people are being shot for no reason by Israel, Cruz said.
Cruz said these media figures are lying to the American people when they tell people the Palestinian riots were the fault of the U.S. for moving the embassy.

Good line, Ted. Essentially, that is what they’re doing.
The Commie media has always been Pro Hamas and Anti Israel..yet these same douche bags have the nerve to call President Trump Hitler..these same Commies wouldn’t shed a tear if Israel were wiped off the planet tomorrow
Pssst... Sen. Cruz... they aren’t ‘acting’.
In before the Cubanadian and other insulting comments.
There are people here who have better things to say about Nancy Pelosi, Kim Jong Un and Maxine Waters than they do about our senator.
Ted still needs to concentrate on Texas.
Its not like their is nothing to fix.
The IRS threat I got came from the Austin, TX office.
This is the same NYT that used to carry Stalin’s water.
the NYT can also be found in the terrorist propaganda section
The NYT has a soft spot for all manner of thugs and terrorists.
No, we just don’t have folks praising them here.
Good old Ted didn’t quite figure out that not working for Trump was working for Hillary.
Hope this helps.
That said, this time Rafael did the right thing, and for the right reason.
Hamas, a terror group. Aiding and abbetting is a federal crime.
I can’t disagree with your observation there.
These ‘acts’ seem to occur most before an election. And while we can say these are good, there are other times when things aren’t so good.
That’s why I can’t see these as anything other than acts, to make him more popular with Republicans before election day.
