They Were Just Kids

The New York Times Vivid (& rare) Front Page in Support of Palestinians

The New York Times carried a rare front page after the recent bombings of Gaza, in Palestine, in May 2021.

It showed the innocent smiling faces of the 65 children killed in the Israeli military action.

50% of the 1.8 million Palestinians in Gaza are children.
More than 2,300 Palestinians in Gaza were killed by Israel in 2014.

Only 237 Palestinians were killed in Gaza in May 2021.
Over 7,000 Palestinians in Gaza have been killed by Israel since 2000.

How many were just children?

The New York Times was an active proponent for the invasion of Iraq in 2003, a position it has since publicly apologized for.
