The Times of Israel has been criticised for publishing an article entitled "When Genocide is Permissable", by Yochanan Gordon, the son of the founder of American paper the Five Towns Jewish Times.
The article contends "nothing can be considered disproportionate" when Israelis are fighting "for our very right to live." It argues:
There’s going to have to come a time where Israel feels threatened enough where it has no other choice but to defy international warnings – because this is life or death.
The post was removed from The Times of Israel, but is still live on the homepage of the Five Towns Jewish Times.
