CAMERA Op-Ed About B'Tselem on YNet


An Op-Ed by the director of CAMERA's Israel office, Tamar Sternthal, was published on Sept. 24 on Ynetnews.com. The piece, entitled "Bending the Truth: Human rights group B’Tselem’s statistics are far from being trustworthy," discusses how B'Tselem's research on Palestinian fatalities "is as shoddy and unreliable as ever."

The column begins:

On Jan. 17, 2002 Abdul Salaam Sadek Hassouneh of Nablus burst into a bat mitzvah celebration at a Hadera reception hall, shooting dead six and injuring 35 before Israeli security forces ended the bloodbath by killing him.

But Hassouneh has another, lesser known claim to notoriety. He was the first of several Palestinian terrorists killed while attacking Israelis to appear that year in B'Tselem's list of "Palestinian civilians killed by Israeli security forces."
