Launched February 2012 (5 years ago) (2012-02)

The Times of Israel is an Israeli-based news website launched in 2012. It was co-founded by journalist David Horovitz, who is also the founding editor, and US hedge fund manager Seth Klarman. The online English website covers "developments in Israel, the Middle East and around the Jewish world," according to the site's nameplate. It also covers news related to the American Jewish community. The website also publishes Arabic, French, Chinese and Persian editions.

In addition to publishing news reports and analysis, the website hosts a multi-author blog platform.[1]

In February 2014, two years after its launch, The Times of Israel claimed a readership of two million.[2] In 2017, readership increased to 3.5 million unique monthly users.[3]

History[edit]

The Times of Israel was launched in February 2012. Its co-founders are Seth Klarman, founder of the Baupost Group and chairman of The David Project, and David Horovitz, formerly the editor-in-chief of The Jerusalem Post and The Jerusalem Report, and a veteran journalist who has covered the Middle East and the Arab–Israeli peace process for thirty years.[4][5]

Several Times of Israel editors had previously worked for the Haaretz English edition, including Joshua Davidovich and Raphael Ahren, and Haaretz Arab affairs correspondent Avi Isaacharoff joined as Middle East analyst.[6]

The Times of Israel launched its Arabic edition, edited by Suha Halifa, on 4 February 2014,[7][8] its French edition, edited by Stephanie Bitan, on 25 February 2014,[9] its Chinese edition, edited by Jingjing Li, on 28 May 2014,[10] and its Persian edition, edited by Avi Davidi, on 7 October 2015.[11]

Both the Arabic and French editions combine translations of English content with original material in their respective languages, and also host a blog platform.[2] In announcing the Arabic edition, Horovitz suggested, The Times of Israel may have created the first Arabic blog platform that "draw[s] articles from across the spectrum of opinion. We're inviting those of our Arabic readers with something of value that they want to say to blog on our pages, respecting the parameters of legitimate debate, joining our marketplace of ideas."[8] In order "to avoid the kind of anonymous comments that can reduce discussion to toxic lows", comments on news articles and features in all of the site's editions can only be posted by readers identified through their Facebook profiles or equivalent.[8]

In February 2014, two years after its launch, The Times of Israel claimed a readership of two million.[2] In 2017, readership increased to 3.5 million.[3]

In March 2016, The Jewish Week (New York) announced a partnership with The Times of Israel.[12] Other partnerships with the online paper include Britain's Jewish News, the New Jersey Jewish Standard and The Atlanta Jewish Times.

On November 2, 2017, hackers in Turkey took down the web site of The Times of Israel for three hours, replacing the homepage with anti-Israel propaganda.[13] Responding to the attack, David Horovitz said: "We constantly work to improve security on the site, which is subjected to relentless attacks by hackers. How unfortunate, and how badly it reflects on them that the hackers seek to prevent people from reading responsible, independent journalism on Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish world."[14] 

Hosting[edit]

Since 2016, the Times of Israel has hosted the websites of Jewish newspapers in several countries. The first was The Jewish Week (New York) in March 2015. As of November 2017, the Times was also hosting Britain's Jewish News, the New Jersey Jewish Standard, The Atlanta Jewish Times and The Jewish Chronicle of Pittsburgh.[15][13][16]

Editorial orientation[edit]

According to co-founder David Horovitz, The Times of Israel is intended to be apolitical and not "have any political leanings."[17][18]

The paper's editorial board is composed of Sharon Ashley, a former editor of The Jerusalem Report; Irwin Cotler, a former Canadian justice minister; Efraim Halevy, a former director of the Mossad; Saul Singer, the author of Start-Up Nation; and Ehud Yaari, a senior Israeli journalist and political commentator. Yehuda Avner, a former Israeli ambassador and adviser to several Israeli prime ministers, was a member of the editorial board until his death in March 2015.[19]

We are independent; we're not attached or affiliated with any political party. [The Times of Israel is] an independent, fair-minded journalistic venture, and I think it's incredibly important to give people a sense of the options that Israel faces and create an informed and constructive debate.

— David Horovitz, The Forward[20]

Coverage issues[edit]

A series of investigative articles, starting with a March 2016 piece by Simona Weinglass entitled “The wolves of Tel Aviv: Israel’s vast, amoral binary options scam exposed,” helped shed light on the multi-billion dollar global scam in Israel. As a direct result of The Times of Israel’s investigative reporting on the fraud, the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, unanimously passed a law on October 23, 2017, to ban Israel’s binary options industry. The law gives all binary options firms in Israel three months since the law was passed to cease operations. After that, anyone involved in binary options is punishable with up to two years in jail.

In a Times of Israel blog, Israeli Knesset member Karine Elharrar of Yesh Atid credited the paper for bringing the issue to the attention of Israeli lawmakers: “Over the past year The Times of Israel shone a spotlight on Israel’s ugly binary options industry. It was a case of investigative journalism at its best and The Times of Israel should be proud of its journalists and editors.”[21]

Controversies[edit]

In addition to the online newspaper, The Times of Israel hosts an open blog platform for any writer who applies and is approved to become a blogger on the site.[22] The website generally does not edit blog posts submitted by approved writers, and accordingly, it takes no responsibility for such blogs, which are not necessarily in line with the website's editorial stance.[23]

On 1 August 2014, a blogger posted a piece entitled, "When Genocide Is Permissible"[24] in which he argued that the war between Israel and Gaza was being misunderstood and misrepresented by the global media.[25] He put the nub of his argument, as it related to the headline, this way: "Hamas has stated forthrightly that it idealizes death as much as Israel celebrates life. What other way is there to deal with an enemy of this nature other than obliterate them completely?" Within minutes, The Times reacted by removing the post and discontinuing the writer's blog, saying the post had breached the website's editorial guidelines and that they "will not countenance blog posts that incite to violence or criminal acts." The writer soon issued a public apology.[26]

On 8 March 2015, an article was posted on The Times of Israel titled "America Desperately Needs a Hate Speech Law", arguing at great length that the United States needed to outlaw "hate speech" in accordance with "international human rights law". The article was posted by an unknown individual using the bogus name "Dinah Silverstein" and a picture of columnist Nancy Goldstein. The article was deleted and the blogger banned, but the incident led to The Times of Israel being criticized for not verifying the identities of its bloggers.[27][28]

On 9 April 2015, an article titled "Understanding the Idea of Israeli Land Under Talmudic Law" was posted on The Times of Israel's blog platform. The article described in great detail how Israel should "exterminate" the Palestinians, who were described as "cockroaches" and "vermin".[29] The article was submitted by a person who had impersonated Australian lawyer Josh Bornstein.[30] The article sparked outrage across social media and, since it was posted under Bornstein's name, it led to his receiving a large amount of abuse and death threats, with at least one of them coming from an individual appearing to be associated with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) militant group.[31][32] The Times of Israel later scrubbed the article and issued an apology.[33][34] Bornstein would later write an article in The Guardian describing the affair.[35] It later emerged that the hoax article was written by Jewish-American alleged troll Joshua Ryne Goldberg, and that the "ISIS threats" were also perpetrated by Goldberg's Australi Witness jihadist online persona.[36]
