Interesting censorship at Saudi Gazette

The Saudi Gazette wrote a fairly stupid article called "Science refutes doctrine of trinity." The article says that because humans have DNA they cannot possibly be gods or sons of God.

Anyway, I wrote to the newspaper about one part of what they wrote, saying that, "Over and above the dogma of godhood of Jesus, the Jews also claimed Ezra being the Son of God and the pagans said, the angels are the daughters of God." I answered,
I don't know where that strange piece of information comes from, but the idea of God limiting Himself in a human body is just as alien to Judaism as it is to Muslims.

No Jewish source claims that Ezra was anything beyond human. If the only source for this idea is the Koran, this casts more doubt on the Koran itself than anything else.
Needless to say, they didn't reprint the second paragraph.
