NYT continues to deny Jewish historical claim to Temple Mount in Jerusalem's Old City

One of the most repulsive newspapers in the USA is keeping on with their equally repulsive custom of minimizing Israel's historical claim to the Temple Mount:
Back on October 12, 2015, The New York Times published Jodi Magness’s letter responding to an article the newspaper printed on October 9 entitled “Historical certainty proves elusive at Jerusalem’s holiest place.” Magness is a classical and biblical archaeologist specializing in the territory of modern Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian territories from the time of Jesus up to the 10th century.

Magness was interviewed as a “specialist” for that piece that was penned by foreign editor Rick Gladstone. However, when reviewing the complete article she felt that it suggested the question of the existence and location of two successive Temples on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem is not really “contested,” as suggested by the article.

She insisted that literary sources and archaeological remains indicate that both Temples stood somewhere on the Temple Mount. She added, “I know of no credible scholars who question the existence of the two temples or who deny that they stood somewhere on the Temple Mount.”

Other critics of The New York Times Temple Mount piece

She wasn’t the only one who found a problem with the piece. Andrew Silow-Carroll, editor-in-chief of The New York Jewish Week and a senior editor of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, described it as “bizarrely one-sided or mischievously inaccurate.”

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
