It is very convenient to discuss the long complicated history of the Jewish state in order to avoid addressing the ethnic cleansing that has been taking place these past 60 years of the Palestinian people.

This article is correctly labeled an opinion piece and, if not for a few sentences that reference recent violence, it would seemingly have nothing to do with today’s media coverage of the escalating conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. That’s why it’s so strange that the article’s headline seems to suggest that readers should simply see today’s humanitarian crisis in Gaza as just a complicated and old situation. I’m not sure why this piece would even be considered well written enough to run in the New York Times and it’s timing and headline sure feel strangely unhelpful in furthering the discussion.
