An editorial in The Times on Sunday lamented the lack of new content, citing a lack of articles about the war in Syria and its aftermath, including a lack on news coverage of Israel’s military action.
The Times also lamented that it has yet to publish a feature on the Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, who is leading a peace process with Israel.
“The Times should be a champion of Palestinian rights, and a leader of peace and justice,” the editorial said.
The editorial also questioned whether The Times should cover the US’s decision to extend the war against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, a term the US uses for ISIS.
“Is there no more urgent national interest than the preservation of US security and national sovereignty?
If the Times does not publish a story on this issue, what will it say about the United States’s commitment to international law and the rule of law?”
The editorial said that the US had made a “mistake” in not reporting on the ISIS advance in Iraq and called for greater cooperation with Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Jordan on the fight against ISIS.
The editorial also said that US officials have failed to inform the public about the number of Americans killed in the battle for Raqqa.
