Daled Amos writes about an editorial by the New York Times rallying against Israel for passing a new law banning calls for boycotts. A few days ago, the New York Times published an article about the passage of the law which contained the following paragraph.
“For years now there have been laws in the United States that come with fines and prison sentences for anyone who calls for a boycott of Israel, and yet the Israeli who persuades American companies to boycott us is completely exempt. That is ludicrous,” Mr. Elkin was quoted as saying in the popular Yediot Aharonot newspaper. He was referring to a federal law in the United States that forbids Americans from complying with, furthering or supporting a boycott of a country that is friendly to the United States.
If you click on the NYT article titled Israel Bans Boycotts Against the State you won't find the above paragraph. But it is quoted in a Forbes post which references the NYT article. Conclusion - that paragraph was scrubbed.
How could the NYT write an editorial criticizing Israel's new law when America also adopted anti-boycott laws, as well? Well, the first step is to remove the paragraph about the American anti-boycott laws from an article published a number of days prior to the editorial.
This morning I discovered a screenshot of a National Post 2009 article about the President titled Obama's bio a state secret in Canada.
The following is an excerpt from the article. The full article can be read here. However, if you try to access the original article, you will find it disappeared.
In blacking out the biographies of the president and his entourage,officials cited a section of the act that allows the government to refuse records whose disclosure could be "injurious to the conduct of international affairs, the defence of Canada or any states allied or associated with Canada."
