"Two more Palestinian journalists who've worked with The New York Times in covering the Israel-Gaza conflict were caught with anti-Semitic and anti-Israel social media histories.

In a 2018 post, Hiijy shared a photo of himself with a caption that translated to either ‘I'm in tune like Hitler during the holocaust’ or ‘in a state of harmony as Hitler was during the Holocaust.’
In a separate post, he referred to Hamas rocket fire toward Israel as ‘the resistance.’

In 2014, Salem cheered on Hamas, claiming the ‘resistance captured a Zionist soldier.’ The IDF soldier Oron Shaul was later killed. That same year, he mourned the death of Hamas operative Salam Maher al-Madhoun, who is tied to the deaths of four IDF soldiers and later expressed joy for the massacre of four rabbis and a police officer in Jerusalem. In 2015, Salem applauded two other terror attacks and in 2018, after being hired by The Times, HonestReporting alleged he ‘called for more violence’ following an attack that killed two IDF soldiers in the West Bank.
