New York Times: Bill de Blasio's 'sanctimony [erodes] his credibility' Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Email this article Share on LinkedIn De Blasio's hypocrisy is so glaring, even a New York Times columnist tore into him for it this week. (AP Photo/Mary Altaffer) New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is catching heat for asking constituents to be more environmentally conscious while refusing to make changes to his own routine. De Blasio's hypocrisy is so glaring, even a New York Times columnist tore into him for it this week. "Mr. de Blasio," Ginia Bellafante wrote, "seems to have little understanding of how his self-contradictions and sanctimony erode his authority." "When he tells us to stop using plastic grocery bags but doesn't examine his own behavior," she continued, "just for a second my inclination is to throw away my cloth carryalls, go to Key Food and ask that everything I buy be individually wrapped, preferably in double layers of polymer." Earlier this month, the Times described an exchange de Blasio shared with a caller on the Brian Lehrer radio program: "How about you stepping up your game, leading by example, getting out of your S.U.V. armada, and if you need to go to the Park Slope Y five days a week rather than a gym near you, why don't you take mass transit or even once in a while ride a bike like the vast majority of your fellow New Yorkers, so you will know how we are suffering under a transit system?" Charles asked. "Charles, I understand the emotional appeal of what you're saying, but I'm just not going to take the bait, my friend," the mayor responded. "I'm going to keep going to the gym, I'm proud to say we have a hybrid and it's a good car, it's very fuel efficient." Just minutes earlier the mayor said this: "Everyone in their own life has to change their own habits to start protecting the earth." That's hypocrisy so obvious and so shameless, even the New York Times can see it. Emily Jashinsky is a commentary writer for the Washington Examiner.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain and Egypt severed relations with Qatar on Monday, accusing it of supporting Islamist militants and their adversary Iran - allegations Qatar says are baseless. Several countries followed suit. Erdogan vowed to keep supporting Qatar after his rapid approval of legislation on deploying Turkish troops there. On Saturday, he told Bahrain's foreign minister that the dispute should be resolved by the end of the holy month of Ramadan. Erdogan on Thursday also approved an accord between Turkey and Qatar on military training cooperation. Both bills were drawn up before the dispute between Qatar and others erupted. Turkey has also pledged to provide food and water supplies to Qatar. Turkey has maintained good relations with Qatar as well as several of its Gulf Arab neighbors. Turkey and Qatar have both provided support for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and backed rebels fighting to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
But if people are only speaking of Israel as an occupier and they don’t talk about “domestic violence, the lack of pro-choice, and honor killings” in the Palestinian community– “if they’re just talking about Israel’s fault”– then she finds their intentions “a little fishy.” She said rates of domestic violence approach 40 percent in Palestinian households in the occupation. As someone who tried to do this myself when I first got into this movement, talk about Palestinian cultural practices I disapproved of (for instance, girls being covered at a young age and not being able to participate in athletic events), my advice to Shire is, If you really are progressive, drop it. Palestinians are living under occupation. You cannot support a society that has its boot on all these people’s necks, and then lecture them about domestic abuse. That’s extremely condescending and is today seen as racist or orientalist, for good reason. If you actually get to know Palestinians, you will find that the educated (a remarkably high percentage) of that society recognize these problems, and want to address them, and often do, but that freedom is actually a more pressing matter for them: basic rights, which they are denied under apartheid. Humbly I’d suggest that liberal American Jews respect what the Palestinian community is telling them before they start telling them how to be enlightened. That’s the best part of intersectionality: giving communities that were shut out a voice. But as Nada Elia made clear , the panel had its own idea of hierarchy: It excluded anti-Zionist voices, and there was barely a word about Palestinian conditions.
