Know Your History: The Occupation Of Jerusalem (NY Times Dec 20, 1917)


series where I use history to debunk common misconceptions about the Middle East conflict.

In a New York Times article from December 20th, 1917 about Turkish mistreatment of Christian priests before the end of World War I, a striking sentence appears – something you would never see in the New York Times today.

Note: I cannot provide a link to the full article since it is only available to those who have purchased a NY Times subscription. But I have provided a screenshot below. As usual, click on the screenshots to enlarge.
