CAMERA Op-Ed: Déjà Vu in Bahrain

Several news outlets have covered the Palestinian Authority's refusal to participate in a recent peace conference held in Bahrain.

Gilad Atzmon, his Defenders, and their Enablers

BACKGROUNDER: The World Health Organization (WHO)- Another Biased UN Body

Forbes Fibs on Netanyahu’s Alleged Warmongering

Jim Krane, of Rice University's Baker Institute, alleged in Forbes that "the Israeli president has been braying for America to attack Iran, just as he urged Congress to do in Iraq," and tenaciously clung to the unfounded falsehood when challenged about its veracity.

A New York Times Book Review Promotes More Anti-Semitic Fiction

In its latest Book Review Section (June 21, 2019), the New York Times promotes a novel that analogizes Palestinian refugees during the 1948 Arab-Israeli war to Jewish victims of the Nazis in what amounts to "Holocaust Inversion" – an antisemitic, anti-Zionist gimmick that depicts Israelis as the new Nazis and Palestinians as the new Jews.

Sennott Still Looking for Crazies After All These Years

Twenty years ago, Charles Sennott was worried about Christian Zionists bringing about terrible violence on the Temple Mount. It didn’t happen. Today he’s worried about Christian Zionists being on the winning side of a political debate over moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

Haaretz’s Disproportionate Visibility for Celebrate Israel Parade Counterdemonstrators

Tens of thousands of pro-Israel marchers came out for Manhattan's Celebrate Israel Parade, but Haaretz's headline and prominent photograph featured a miniscule minority of anti-Israel demonstrators.

CAMERA Op-Ed: CAIR Isn’t Credible

Not for the first, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has slandered CAMERA as "Islamophobic." CAIR failed to present any evidence for their libel.

CAMERA Op-Ed: Politico Rewrites History

A recent report by Politico claims that Palestinians are "coming to support" a one-state solution. In fact, history shows that Palestinian Arab leaders have always rejected the idea of a Jewish state.

CAMERA Op-Ed: Antisemitism Goes Mainstream

Antisemitism is spreading into the bloodstream of mainstream America. And key American institutions, like the media and the U.S. Congress, are not only failing to inoculate against it—they’re actually helping to transmit the virus.

Bloomberg Errs, Corrects, on Legality of Occupation

Bloomberg errs, stating that Israel’s capture of the West Bank has "been ruled an illegal occupation in repeated UN resolutions.” While the UN has made clear that Israeli annexation of the West Bank would be “inadmissible,” no resolutions argued that the capture of the West Bank and subsequent occupation was unlawful.

Mixed Arab-Jewish Haifa, Lost in AFP’s Arabic Translation

AFP's Arabic service offers up a unique and misleading description of Haifa, dubbing it "the Arab mixed city in the north," ignoring 75 percent of the city's population, which is Jewish. The news agency's English article, in contrast, accurately describes Haifa as "the mixed Arab-Jewish city of Haifa in northern Israel."

CAMERA Prompts Correction After CBC Counts Gunmen, Infiltrators as Demonstrators

CAMERA prompts correction of a CBC report which erroneously counted gunmen, infiltrators and Palestinians who engaged in other violent attacks at the Israel-Gaza border among demonstrators killed by Israeli fire. UPDATE: CBC's ombudsperson responds to CAMERA's complaint concerning a completely irrelevant passage about Canadians joining ISIS from the feature on Canadians "lone soldier" recruits to the IDF.

Deaths of Baby, Woman, Lost in Haaretz Translation

One day after the Israeli army blamed exploded Palestinian ordinance as responsible for the death of the Abu Arar baby and her aunt, Haaretz's English print edition carried only Hamas' side of the story. The Hebrew print edition, in contrast, reported the army's denial at length.

Backgrounder: Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades

In the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, certain claims are often parroted by the media. Chief among them: Fatah, the movement that dominates the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and the Palestinian Authority (PA), is “secular” and “moderate.” However, Fatah's Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade, a U.S.-designated terror group, proves otherwise.

DPA Corrects Captions: Rocket Attacks On Israel Are Actual, Not Alleged

CAMERA prompts correction of numerous Deutsche Presse-Agentur photo captions today which erroneously referred to hundreds of rocket attacks on Israel as "alleged," as if it wasn't yet certain that Gaza terrorists have carried out hundreds of these attacks since yesterday morning.

New York Times apes Der Sturmer with anti-Semitic Cartoon

A dog with a Jewish star around its neck and the face of a Jewish leader, guiding a blind, yarmulke-wearing U.S. President would be standard fare for the notorious Nazi newspaper Der Sturmer, and for its modern descendants. Unfortunately the New York Times must now be counted among those descendants.

“The Daily” Podcast Vocalizes New York Times Anti-Israel Bias

The Daily, a New York Times podcast hosted by Michael Barbaro, shows how naturally the anti-Israel narrative comes to Times reporters, who exclude Israeli voices, suggest Palestinians didn’t attack Israeli civilians during the intifada, conceal the Palestinian rejection of peace offers, blame Netanyahu for building the security barrier, misstate the American position on the legality of Israel's occupation, and much, much more.

The Washington Post’s Lopsided Coverage of Israel’s Elections

The Washington Post's offered extensive, and often misleading, coverage of Israel's elections. Post reporters and op-eds portrayed Israeli PM Bibi Netanyahu as the obstacle to peace, while completely omitting the responsibility of Palestinian leadership.
