Posted on 11/09/2018 1:51:15 PM PST by DFG
The New York Times, under pressure, has suspended its moneymaking Times Journeys journalist-guided vacation tours of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
The 106-page printed catalog of 2019 departures hit mailboxes of Times subscribers this week. It includes trips to Antarctica, China, Japan, and the Galapagos Islands. But terror-sponsoring, Israel-hating Tehran, which has been a destination for the Times since the Times Journeys launched in 2014, has been unceremoniously dropped from the list.
A Times spokeswoman didnt immediately respond to a question about why the trips had been stopped. The US Treasury also didnt immediately respond on the record to a question about whether the Trump administrations newly-tightened sanctions on Iran had required the Times to stop offering the journeys.
A booking representative for the Times Journeys explained that the Times Iran tour had been put on the shelf for the next year or two, the result of just a change in the kind of direction that we wanted to go with the travel program.

Because Iran is what comes to mind when I think “Luxory”
Is this satire? They really ran tours to Iran?
Gotta be satire.
What’s next? I can see the Washington Post maybe offering the Jamal Khashoggi Memorial Tour to Saudi Arabia.
Iran is a beautiful country with beautiful people, food, and culture, and I hope to go as soon as all the g*ddamned Mullahs are swinging from lampposts.
I hear the skiing is great in Iran also-——which was a surprise to me.
So did Abercrombie and Kent, the high end travel company.
Now Iran is not listed as a destination.
Isfahan is still on my list but I’m certain I will not make it
Iran is a very wealthy nation, with thousands of years of culture. You’re not talking about Afghanistan here...
Hey, I'm old enough to remember that those "beautiful people" were out in the streets in favor of that old demon, Ayatollah Khomenei, against the Shah ... so, in my opinion, they're getting what they deserve.
same here....the Persians had a good culture until the arabs invaded....I’d love to go to Persia.....
Given that the Slimes is owned by the Jewish Sultzbergers, you have to wonder what they think of their heritage? I guess it’s anything for a buck! Better still if it helps to destroy both America and Israel.
“I can see the Washington Post maybe offering the Jamal Khashoggi Memorial Tour to Saudi Arabia.”
Does that include being beaten to death or just being shown how it was done?
