CAMERA Action Prompts Improvement at ABCnews.com


ABCnews.com features a permanent interactive item which provides background information on Hamas. Entitled “Frequently Asked Questions About Hamas,” the article had initially whitewashed the group’s goals and sources of funding from abroad. Editors are to be commended for making the following changes after having heard from CAMERA staff:

Error (Abcnews.com, permanent Interactive item): The official Hamas rhetoric is opposed to the very existence of the Israeli state, but in reality, the group has altered its position to oppose Israel’s occupation of the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem.

Correction (As of 1/21/05): The official Hamas rhetoric is opposed to the very existence of the Israeli state.

Error (Abcnews.com, permanent Interactive item): There have been allegations that Hamas also raises funds in the United States, Canada and Western Europe.

Correction (As of 1/21/05): Charities in the United States, Canada and Western Europe have funded Hamas-linked social service groups. In addition, several individuals in the United States have been charged with providing material support to the group.
