CAMERA Op-Ed: Beyond ‘Klinghoffer’
October 21, 2014

Some news media accounts have tended to amplify a vocal fringe in the American Jewish community that espouses extreme views and policies far out of the mainstream. This poll clarifies what American Jews actually feel and believe.


Al-Jazeera America (AJAM) Watch

AJAM, financed by the oil sheikdom of Qatar, began broadcasting on Aug. 20, 2013. Why would Qatar's rulers – who have spent hundreds of millions of dollars to launch the new satellite-cable news channel – want to compete with other American cable and over-the-air networks?
