Over the past two years, Scientific American has published a series of biased attacks on Israel, even accusing Israel of “vaccine apartheid and medical apartheid.” Such actions are not surprising considering that in 2021, a Senior Editor at Scientific American tweeted that “Israel is an apartheid state and Zionism is white supremacy. #FreePalestine.” Peter Reitzes notes that a few weeks earlier an article titled “As Health Care Workers, We Stand in Solidarity with Palestine” 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 “one-sided political propaganda,” ignoring “easily verified facts,” and covering “important historical and political issues superficially, inaccurately, and prejudicially.” (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.
