Op-Ed Soapbox for Terror Is Illegal Too

SoapboxThe Supreme Court ruling barring "peaceful aid" to foreign terror organizations has implications for the op-ed pages of newspapers too.

Soccer Dad points out that providing Hamas a propaganda platform on the op-ed pages is also peaceful aid that facilitates their terror agenda.

That's something to think about next time Ismail Haniyeh, Mousa Abu Marzook and Muhammed Hussein Fadlallah express themselves in the bully pulpit of the LA Times, Washington Post, NY Times, LA Times (again), Washington Post (again), Washington Post/Newsweek or even the Trinity United Church newsletter.

In fact, a few years ago, Shurat HaDin director Nitsana Darshan-Leitner told HonestReporting:

Legally speaking, it would seem that there is not much difference between outlaw regimes like Iran and Syria, which illegally provide material support and resources to terrorist organizations, and liberal media outlets which provide millions of dollars in free advertising and access to groups like Hamas when they publish their leaders' dangerous messages. The NY Times and Washington Post are every bit the supporters of the terrorist organizations that Tehran and Damascus are when they facilitate the publication of Hamas' messages.
