Over the past two years, Scientific American has published a series of biased attacks on Israel, even accusing Israel of â€œvaccine apartheid and medical apartheid.â€ Such actions are not surprising considering that in 2021, a Senior Editor at Scientific American tweeted that â€œIsrael is an apartheid state and Zionism is white supremacy. #FreePalestine.â€ Peter Reitzes notes that a few weeks earlier an article titled â€œAs Health Care Workers, We Stand in Solidarity with Palestineâ€ was removed from the Scientific American website just hours after the publisher received a letter signed by more than 106 scientists and physicians, including three Nobel Laureates. The letter criticized Scientific American editors for publishing â€œone-sided political propaganda,â€ ignoring â€œeasily verified facts,â€ and covering â€œimportant historical and political issues superficially, inaccurately, and prejudicially.â€ (A full text of the now removed column is available here.) Criticism by reputable scientists doesn’t seem to have had much of an effect on the magazine.
