With the Israeli Defense Ministry’s research-and-development arm doing its darndest to battle Covid-19, David Halbfinger, Jerusalem bureau chief for The New York Times, just couldn’t help himself.
But its latest mission is lifesaving. Since March, it has been spearheading a sprawling, high-speed effort to unleash some of the country’s most advanced technologies against an enemy of another kind: Covid-19.
Then again, he usually can’t.
It is one thing to not reflect the reality of the situation: the lengths we are going to in order to save lives for all of mankind.
It is another to go out of your way to paint us as killers.
I give David the finger.
