Geller Detects Muslims at the New York Times

Pam Geller has her typically hysterical overreaction to something in the press and, as always, sees scary Muslims lurking about. This time it’s the New York Times who are out to destroy Jews because, uh, they had a picture of a Jewish woman with a tattoo on a story about breast cancer in Israel.

On the first night of Chanukah, the New York Times indulged in its grotesque penchant for its special brand of subtle, sophisticated Jew-hatred, on the front page – of course.

Not only did the New York Times publish a nipple on the front page (a first) next to a tattooed Jewish star, but the article is all about the cancerous Jews. Front page stuff, don’t you know? All the Jews that are fit to libel in print:

While poor countries struggle to provide even basic cancer care to women, wealthier societies like Israel and the United States are increasingly using sophisticated technologies to identify those at greatest risk in an effort to thwart the disease before it gets started.

Front page. It’s really vile – disgusting. A tattooed (tattoos are a violation of Jewish law) Jewish star above a nipple as the image for the “Jews’ genetic predisposition to cancer.” Jews = cancer. Jews were tattooed and naked when they were killed in concentration camps. The Times must be taking its talking points from Iran.

Um. Yeah. Go look at the article in question. The picture is of a woman in Tel Aviv who had a mastectomy and she happens to have a tattoo of the Star of David on her chest. Apparently, if you show a picture of a Jewish woman who decided to get a tattoo that’s just like forcing people into concentration camps and putting tattoos of numbers on them against their will.

    Actually, if Jewish women do have a higher incidence of breast cancer, then not acknowledging this so one can take this into account in one’s personal health care and in one’s national health care policy — that would be anti-Semitism.

    And assuming that all Jews must and do obey Jewish law and traditions? That is more anti-Semitism.

    Ninja’d by Richard el guru, and then by Chiroptera:

    yeah, the woman can’t tell the difference between a nipple and an areola. Moreover, although I certainly agree that showing a tattooed Jew could potentially be offensive, I know a lot of tattooed Jews (though I personally am not) and I wouldn’t want to say that I can be in the paper but they can’t b/c tattoo! you have to have a lot more than the existence of a Jew with a tattoo before you have anti-semitism. And, sorry, wanting to cure cancer != evil.

    Seriously idiotic.

    Just to nitpick. That’s not a mastectomy. If she had a mastectomy there would be no breast or nipple. If she had reconstructive surgery she would have an implant and possibly a tattoo that looked like a nipple there.

    That would be a double whammy in Geller’s book! :-) Maybe Geller would like to opine about whether Jewish women should be allowed to have cosmetic nipple tattoos after mastectomies and how Nazi-like allowing them to do so would be.

    The woman in the photo looks like she has a lumpectomy scar, which means she still has her natural breast except for whatever portion they removed with her tumor.

    If the same article had been written about Arabs, I can easily imagine Geller calling it pro-Muslim and anti-Jewish. See, they only care about the problems of Arabs at the Times. Arabs are presented as victims. They’re trying to stir Western sympathy for Arabs. blah, blah, blah.

    By the way, that appears to be a lumpectomy scar, not a mastectomy.

    “While poor countries struggle to provide even basic cancer care to women, wealthier societies like Israel and the United States are increasingly using sophisticated technologies to identify those at greatest risk in an effort to thwart the disease before it gets started.”

    Whoa! Did Geller just endorse Obamacare???!!!

    Re Raging Bee @ #7

    If the Fairfax fussbudget read the talkbacks on the English language Israeli newspapers, he would find that out in short order.

    I’m not Jewish, and of course I can’t speak for any Jew, but I would imagine that a Jewish woman who gets a tattoo of a Jewish symbol in a prominent location is probably a nice example of someone who is proud to be a Jew… no? I would have called that a positive symbol of cultural pride and freedom of choice & expression. Geller sees Nazis.

  8. says

    Did Geller fail to get the message from her fellow wingnuts that the Jew York Times is a tool of the Zionists?

    Pam: please take better notes at the meetings.

    tattoo on a jew=tattooed jew= jew with cancer=cancerous jews=holocausty Iranians=anti semite New York Times(really, PAM? the NYT?!)=MOOOOSLEEEEEEM! QED!
    There was a street preacher at my university who would have been proud of this fevered, disordered stream of consciousness.

  10. says

    Colnago: Faithfully repeating shit a minority of Jews desperately want the rest of us to think. Sorry, I know too many left wing Jews to take that shit seriously.

    Geller: Breaking ranks with the conspiracy nuts, apparently?

  11. freehand says

    So, is she saying that the Nazis in Israel forced this woman to get that tattoo?

    Also, alanb: I can’t decide if Pam is crazy or if she writes most of her articles while drunk.

    I think if she had been drunk there would be more misspelled words.

    Yes, I am happy she outed the crypto-Nazis at the Times: Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, Jr. (publisher), Jill Abramson (Editor), and Andrew Rosenthal (opinion editor).
