Following communication by CAMERA, the New York Times updated its piece to note that the new embassy isn't partially in east Jerusalem, but rather what was called "No Man's Land," which separated the western and eastern sectors of the city.
The New York Times was wrong to claim an Egyptian intelligence officer urged the media not to condemn U.S. recognition of Israel's capital. It was wrong to suddenly change its characterization of Ramallah from a lively city to a dreary town. And it was wrong to ignore anti-Semitism by Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas.
The New York Times did not publish quotes from the campaign of incitement by Palestinian leaders or describe the enactment of anti-Israeli violence at a Hamas camp. And it did not report on the terrorist stabbing of an Israeli civilian, likely a result of such incitement. What did it emphasize instead?
A New York Times' article about a July 14th Palestinian terror attack in Jerusalem contains no falsehoods or errors, but nevertheless manages to mislead readers both about Jerusalem and its holy sites, as well as the motives behind the events.
NYT journalists employ a singular set of criteria to assess racism in Israeli society versus others, similar to the double standard they use to condemn Israel for the sort of laws democratic countries routinely use to govern entry by foreigners into their borders.
The New York Times is willing to label as terrorism attacks against civilians in France and other countries. But when the attacks are against Israelis, terrorism is not terrorism.
Most Palestinians killed in recent months wounded or killed others, or died trying to do so. So why does The New York Times ignore the successful assailants, and characterize the majority of fatalities as having "attempted" attacks or as being "suspected" of trying?
Not long after extremist Knesset member Haneen Zoabi called for Palestinian lone-wolf stabbings to be expanded into a new intifada, the New York Times claimed that she and her fellow Arab MKs have "opposed" violence.
Amidst mounting Palestinian terrorism against Israeli civilians, Times correspondent Isabel Kershner presents a thoughtful, first-hand account by an Israeli survivor of a Palestinian terror attack. This regrettably rare insight was excluded from the newspaper's print edition.
CAMERA's 2011 study, Indicting Israel: New York Times Coverage of the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict, devoted an entire chapter to "Violence Double Standards" demonstrating how Palestinan terrorism and violence against Israelis is reported through a lens of Palestinian victimhood. Recent coverage of violence in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict demonstrates the same pattern of distortions.
