In the aftermath of CAMERA’s investigation, the organizers of the Golden Globe Awards removed Egyptian film critic Howaida Hamdy from their ranks. This decision followed CAMERA’s exposure of Hamdy's Arabic statements, which expressed support for terrorism and exhibited anti-Jewish bigotry.
It has been three decades since the signing of the Oslo Accords. And one thing is crystal clear: As CAMERA tells the Wall Street Journal, the Palestinian Authority isn't a peace partner.
Even as international media outlets answered the call to improve coverage of Palestinian fatalities by noting that those killed by Israeli fire in Jenin last week were confirmed combatants, Israeli daily Haaretz failed to update its English and Hebrew-language reports with this highly relevant information.
CNN’s obsessive and slanted reporting continues to leave its audience without important information necessary to understand events. Notably, the omissions all work to downplay and omit the terrorism and violence being waged against Israel, instead highlighting only the decontextualized responses of the Israeli Defense Forces.
You just published an antisemitic diatribe on an Arabic news site? Great, come publish at Apple News! Apple News continues to give a platform to rabid antisemite Abdel Bari Atwan.
Golda Meir was a seminal figure in Israeli history. As Deborah Lipstadt notes in her new biography, the Israeli prime minister never lacked for critics. Yet Meir played a crucial role in securing the Jewish state.
CNBC commendably amends after opaquely reporting that the Orthodox Judaism of Jack Lew, nominated to be the next U.S. ambassador to Israel, "should help ease the Senate confirmation process."
Other entertainment news outlets that report on the film should be aware of the pitfalls and avoid making similar errors.
AP journalists conceal, distract and deflect, keeping inconvenient truths about the Palestinian smuggling of weapons away from sunlight.
Ali Velshi spent much of his Sunday morning weaving a narrative of an evil Jewish state, threading together outright lies with material omissions to tell his false tale of a brutal, undemocratic apartheid state.
One of the LA Times' infamous journalists against journalism, Suhauna Hussain defies the playing rules of ethical journalism with contortions and evasions. With Quidditch-worthy stunts of fictional narrative, she advocates on behalf of anti-Israel partisans opposed to Google's Nimbus contract with Israel.
Guy Nattiv's new film, Golda, profiles the Israeli premier at the height of the Yom Kippur War. As CAMERA tells the Washington Examiner, the movie is both gritty and realistic. And Helen Mirren's portrayal of Golda is both convincing and memorable.
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict, CAMERA tells the Washington Times, is where common sense goes to die. For decades, the media continues to treat peace processors as experts, overlooking a key fact: the policies that they have pushed have failed.
Like an unshakeable addiction, the impulse of mainstream journalists to conceal the terror affiliations of Palestinians killed by Israeli troops remains a persistent feature of reporting at major news outlets. Most recently, Islamic Jihad and Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades fighters get a pass at AP and The New York Times.
In a video unveiling a new long-range attack drone, Iran warns in Hebrew and Persian "Prepare your shelters." AP completely ignores that threat, and reports with no qualification that President Raisi "reiterated Iran's stance about friendly relations with 'all countries in the world,'"
Reuters commendably corrects after overstating the number of Palestinians living in refugee camps in Lebanon and clarifies that the victims of a Palestinian attack were Israeli.
The article does not ignore Jewish claims to the Temple Mount, but it subtly denies their credence while privileging Muslim theology.
The Washington Post recently embedded with a U.S.-designated terrorist group, al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades. The Post's report raises various questions about ethics and access.
After first reporting that no information was immediately available to ascertain whether a Palestinian killed today in Jenin was affiliated with a terror group, AP commendably updates: Mustafa al-Kastouni was a fighter with Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade.
News database searches indicate that not one single mainstream Western media outlet reported on the explosives lab and 15 primed bombs destroyed by Israeli forces in Balata refugee camp.
While Egyptian film critic Howaida Hamdy unabashedly glorifies terrorism and peddles in anti-Jewish bigotry in her native Arabic, she poses as a legitimate film industry observer for Golden Globe's English-speaking audience.
They’ve developed a theory, and that theory conveniently means evidence and arguments to the contrary are to be silenced. But more importantly, that theory means the very Jews to be studied must also be silenced.
France 24 fires Dina Abi-Saab, the second Arabic-language journalist dismissed from the publicly-funded network following CAMERA Arabic's investigation exposing social media content supporting terrorism and peddling antisemitism.
The 6000 word piece by Jesse Rosenfeld brings to mind the adage that “a half-truth is a whole lie.”
Of the 40 articles featured on CNN's "Middle East" section in July, 27 focused on Israel. Just five focused on Iran, and only two on Iraq. Put another way, CNN wrote more articles (15) just on Israel’s judicial reform debates than it did on the rest of the region combined (13).
The PFLP claimed him. His goodbye note named the PFLP. He was buried in PFLP attire. Carried by PFLP members. His mother wore a PFLP headscarf. But the New York Times insisted he had no affiliation.
The Washington Post's coverage of Israel continues to be replete with omissions and biases. The Post continues to omit crucial facts and context.
A Christian Science Monitor feature about a centuries-old east Jerusalem soup kitchen mixes heart-warming accounts of generosity and a dose of savory food descriptions with a dash of misinformation about Israeli benefits for Arab residents of eastern Jerusalem.
Reuters' Henriette Chacar claims that Israeli Arabs "largely" self-identify as Palestinian. Poll after poll demonstrate that the opposite is true, with only a small minority primarily identifying as Palestinian.
Winston Churchill called the Holocaust a "crime without a name." Elie Wiesel, one of its most eloquent survivors, would spend the rest of his life trying to find the words to describe what for many seemed incomprehensible. As CAMERA tells the Washington Free Beacon: that Wiesel often succeeded is a testament to his greatness.
Even while covering a Palestinian rocket attack on an Israeli community, Agence France Presse demonstrates a steadfast propensity for whitewashing Palestinian violence against Israeli civilians.
As Jewish mourning for the destroyed Temples endures, so too does media misreporting distancing the Jewish people from their most sacred site.
Times of Israel clarifies headlines which failed to make clear that a clip shared by Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir showing Israeli pilots opposed to the judicial overhaul refusing to extend help to soldiers supporting the plan was staged.
David Remnick, editor of The New Yorker, once again puts his fatuous ignorance and faux sophistication on display in his recent screed about Israel, Netanyahu and judicial reform.
CAMERA prompts correction of a Reuters article which misidentified Rep. Rashida Tlaib as "the first Palestinian-American House member."
France24 Arabic pundit Ramatène Aouaitia erroneously reports that Jewish members of the House of Representatives were among those who said they would boycott Israeli President Isaac Herzog's speech.
Leila Molana-Allen's twin broadcasts obscure the driving forces behind Palestinian terrorism and provide faux balance encapsulated by what she misleadingly calls a "cycle of violence."
In much of the reporting about Israel and the Middle East, terrorist organizations are entirely absent. In a recent article in the Economist, however, terror groups are the focus – but the effects of terrorism are glossed over, and the members are glamorized as if they were social media influencers.
CNN has a shaky relationship with polling data. Previously, Christiane Amanpour appears to have fabricated polling results. On July 14, however, CNN’s Abeer Salman took a slightly different track by using existing polling data, but only some of it.
Associated Press has yet to report that at least 10 out of the 12 Palestinian fatalities in Jenin were confirmed members of Palestinian terror organizations. AFP shifts from concealing those affiliations entirely to whitewashing the minors who were verified members of terror groups as merely "children."
When are gun-wielding teenage Islamic Jihad members involved in violent clashes defined as "children"? The answer is when the WSJ's Stephen Kalin is reporting and Journal "corrections" editors endorse the biased misinformation. How does this scenario square with the Journal's professed adherence to journalistic ethics and commitment to ensuring reader "trust"? Answer: It doesn't.
According to many recent flawed news accounts, the “flare-up” in violence began only with the introduction of a new Israeli government and has been driven by extremist Israelis. The data, however, disagrees. Not only did the “flare-up” begin long before the current government took power in November 2022, but it has been overwhelmingly driven by Palestinian attacks.
The Washington Post continues its long-standing magic trick of making the Palestinian Authority disappear. In fact, the Authority, which rules over the majority of Palestinians, is slowly eroding. The many media outlets who have refused to hold the PA accountable share the blame for its failures.
Unable to criticize Israel for killing Palestinian civilians, Tareq Baconi is left criticizing it for wanting to stop the murder of Israeli civilians.
The Washington Post is failing. In more than half a dozen reports on Israel's counterterrorist operation in Jenin, the Post repeatedly failed to provide crucial context and essential facts. The failures are so endemic, and so pronounced, that they raise questions about the future of the newspaper's coverage of the Israel-Islamist conflict.
At the beginning of July, Israeli Defense Forces launched a major counterterrorist operation in Jenin. Many mainstream news outlets failed to provide essential context about the raid. As CAMERA tells the Washington Examiner, the Palestinian Authority's support for terrorism, both implicit and otherwise, have given the leading state sponsor of terror, Iran, an opening to attack Israel.
Those old enough will remember that during a 2002 IDF operation in Jenin, Palestinian officials, aided by United Nations officials and international media coverage, spread one of the most notorious libels against the IDF: that of the “Jenin Massacre.” With that history in mind, here are five important details you may have missed in the media’s coverage of the events in Jenin this time around.
From the headline to the last sentence, CBS failed to adequately report on the Israeli rationale for the strike.
In March, CAMERA helped expose a wildly inaccurate and offensive display at the Borough of Manhattan Community College. Now CAMERA responds to even more false allegations and proposes a constructive path forward.
After robust pushback by the Jewish community and organizations, the BBC has (semi) apologized for a modern-day blood libel put forth by one of its news presenters, Anjani Gadgil, who has since erased her twitter and linkedin accounts.
UPDATE: From a headline which reports as fact the disputed claim that Israeli troops fired tear gas in the Jenin hospital to the accompanying story blaming a Palestinian terror attack on a protesting car, CAMERA prompts multiple corrections after ABC hit a plethora of pitfalls.
Following communication from CAMERA, Reuters deletes the false claim that the Jenin refugee camp "was largely destroyed by Israeli troops during a previous incursion two decades ago." In fact, according to a U.N. report, 10 percent of the camp was "totally destroyed" in the 2002 incursion.
CAMERA prompts correction of an AFP headline which falsely reported that “Gaza rulers Hamas display weapons for first time.” In fact, Hamas’ public displays of weapons are a frequent affair in the Gaza Strip.
AP claims that the Sub Laban family lived "for seven decades" in their rental home, completely ignoring the Jerusalem court's key finding that the family was absent for three decades, thereby losing the protected tenant status.
Freedom House: "The conduct of [Israel's] 2022 elections was generally perceived as fair and successful." If only the The New York Times' editorial board would perform so well.
Far from informing readers, a recent Washington Post backgrounder on Palestinian Islamic Jihad echoed the terrorist group's propaganda. Indeed, the Post's attempt to provide essential background was riddled with errors of both omission and co-mission.
In response to communication from CAMERA, Times of Israel and Al Hurra amend their coverage on Omar Kattin, killed in unclear circumstances last week as settlers rampaged in Turmas Ayya, to note that Hamas claimed his as its "martyred hero."
The Washington Post is running a veritable “Committee to Investigate Israel.” Despite being cash-strapped and resource starved, the newspaper has launched multiple costly “investigations” into IDF counter terror raids in Judea and Samaria. And all omit crucial facts while relying on distorted statistics.
VOA corrects after claiming that 900,000 Palestinians living in the West Bank were displaced from their homes in 1948. In fact, the number of West Bank Palestinians alive during 1948 is a tiny fraction of that figure.
CNN’s attempt at providing background on Neve Yaakov packs an impressive amount of historical and legal nonsense into a single sentence.
If whole-reporting seeks to fully and fairly cover the world, half-reporting covers — and covers-up. This time, New York Times half-reporting concealed Palestinian support for the repression of Uyghurs.
In less than an hour, France24’s Jerusalem correspondent Laila Odeh went from glorifying a terrorist who murdered four civilians to being treated as a respectable, balanced journalist reporting on the exact same terror attack.
AFP reports that people shot people in the West Bank. Beyond that, the basics about the deadly terror attack in Eli, when Palestinian assailants gunned down four Israeli civilians, are rather fuzzy.
Unfiltered hate speech targeting both Jews and LGBTQ thrives unchecked on France24 Arabic's social media platforms, with lessons from previous dustup as fleeting as a Middle Eastern summer rain.
After twice this year failing to correct false references to Jesus as either Palestinian or living in Palestine, The New York Times has finally come through with a stealth correction after an additional item falsely stated that the revered figure lived in Palestine.
For a 3,000-word essay following an explosive claim in the headline, very little space is devoted to actual evidence of the central claim: that soldiers “did little” to stop violence in Huwara.
CAMERA Arabic prompts correction at Al Hurra after the U.S. news outlet republished an Arabic AFP article which failed to report that two Palestinian fatalities were members of Islamic Jihad, a designated terror group.
A Fox Business weather report erroneously names Israel as one of the places with the world's worst air quality, along with India. In fact, the Jewish state's air quality ranks better than 40 percent of the 131 evaluated countries.
Arabic Euronews misleadingly reports that arch-terrorist Ahlam Tamimi was “arrested for eight years in Israel,” concealing the essential fact that she had been tried and sentenced to 16 life terms for her role in the deadly 2001 Sbarro suicide bombing.
Haaretz expands its category of inherently suspect jurists. Rabbis and the vast and diverse pool of Bar-Ilan University graduates join the paper's growing list of intrinsically compromised judges alongside those living in the disputed West Bank.
Both Mehdi Hasan and Fatima Mohammed are entitled to their opinions and their free expression. It would just be nice if their speech came with a little less anti-Jewish demagoguery and with a lot more factual accuracy.
With the advent of couch journalism, we may yet look back longingly at parachute journalism. Adam Schrader's remote reporting on Israel stands out for its abundance of factual errors and partisanship, starting with the astounding claim that Israeli leaders raided the Al Aqsa Mosque.
While in college, Raja Abdulrahim brashly defended Hamas and Hezbollah. While working for the New York Times, she defends Hamas and Islamic Jihad with a touch more subtlety.
A recent Washington Post report uncritically repeated casualty statistics provided by the Palestinian "Ministry of Health." Yet as CAMERA told the Post, that "ministry" is run by Hamas, a U.S.-designated terrorist group.
Ashraf Ibrahim, killed in a gunbattle with Israeli troops, was a Palestinian intelligence officer. He also moonlighted as a fighter with the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, a designated terrorist organization affiliated with Fatah. News stories reported the former work while leaving out the latter.
Two recent Washington Post reports violate basic standards of both journalism and common sense. The newspaper continues to give undue credibility to terrorist groups and to pretend that their media operatives are reporters.
Rather than correct an Arabic article which falsely depicted the undisputed archeological fact of the Jewish temple's presence on the Temple Mount as nothing more than a Jewish belief, AFP erased all mention of Judaism's connection to the site.
Weaponized usage of a single key word can propagate an insidious blood libel. CAMERA prompts correction after Reuters mischaracterized confirmed terrorist leaders targeted by Israel as "alleged Islamic Jihad commanders."
An Amnesty International USA board member and director at a U.S.-funded NGO shares social media content that dignifies the murder of Jewish civilians, praises Palestinian war crimes, lies about the laws of war, and argues Israel will be expelled from the Middle East because there isn't enough room for the Jewish-Israeli people.
Elassar and CNN promote four children’s authors whose books feature Palestinian culture but also promote anti-Israel propaganda to young readers.
CAMERA prompts quick improvements after AP initially buried the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade affiliation of three fighters killed this morning near Nablus and underreported the number of combatants killed earlier this month in Gaza.
The New York Times covered Mahmoud Abbas’s speech this week at the UN, except for the parts that it covered up: the Holocaust inversion, the denial of history, the sections that would have showed readers the ugliness of the Palestinian leader’s extremism.
Since Israel's rebirth in 1948 the Palestinian "nakba" (or catastrophe) narrative has taken root, portraying well-armed Jewish immigrants overrunning peaceful Palestinian villages. Though believed by many "progressives," the nakba narrative is nonsense. Israel was not born in original sin, and the real Palestinian catastrophe is that their leaders have embraced violence and supposed victimhood while repeatedly rejecting peace plans and statehood.
In a textbook example of antisemitism, Haaretz's Yossi Klein grotesquely charged that Israeli society rejoices in and rallies behind the deliberate killing of Palestinian children.
MSNBC's Ayman Mohyeldin was not content to merely rewrite and erase history. He also chose to rewrite and erase current events.
CNN’s Isa Soares has a problem with human shields, but not with those who use them.
Israel has recently celebrated the 75th anniversary of its recreation. Israel's existence, CAMERA tells the Washington Times, is a miracle. For more than seven decades the Jewish state has fought those opposed to its very right to exist.
Hamas "knows about the ethics of war and how to look after the prisoners of war it holds," writes Hanin Majadli in Haaretz. Just try to tell that to Avera Mengistu or Hisham al-Sayed. Oh, no, never mind. The two mentally ill Israeli civilians are held completely incommunicado, in gross violation of international law.
As Palestinian Islamic Jihad indiscriminately fired nearly 1500 rockets at Israeli civilians and the Israeli military targeted the designated terror organization with some 400 airstrikes, France24 Arabic pundit Khaled Gharabli once again hastened to falsely charge Israel of committing war crimes with impunity.
Question: When does the hyper-vigilant international media ignore Israel dropping a bomb? Answer: When a senior Israeli security official reveals that Palestinian terrorists were on the verge of opening a dangerous new front against Israeli civilians.
Some lies are clever. Then there are The Guardian’s lies.
CAMERA is happy to answer the question for him.
CNN has been letting a lot go lately – chiefly its adherence to professional journalism.
Two decades have passed since Raja Abdulrahim, then a student, came to the defense of anti-Israel terror groups. But not a day has passed since she's downplayed one.
While Times of Israel and BBC Arabic commendably improved their respective articles after initially failing to report that slain Palestinian teen Jibril Muhammad Ladaa was a Hamas fighter, Haaretz, Reuters and AFP have yet to add the key information.
A USA Today report on a U.S. Congressional trip to Israel offers an example of good, old-fashioned journalism. The newspaper avoided editorializing and refrained from inserting commentary while providing readers with essential information.
In his life before his death, Adnan Khader had plenty to say on the question of using the body as "a tool to achieve change," as the New York Times put it. None of it, though, was in Gandhi's nonviolent spirit.
An Amnesty official suggested the reason neither he nor Amnesty will address concerns over factual errors is because such time won't “contribute to helping to end Israeli apartheid.” In other words, the conclusion has already been declared and the facts don’t matter. The hypothesis must be treated as correct regardless of what the data shows. This is not the behavior of a credible fact-finder.
There’s very little in the piece by Professors Michael Barnett, Nathan J. Brown, Marc Lynch and Shibley Telhami that’s original. But the depth of its dishonesty, even for an opinion piece, is rare.
Less than half a year after BBC reportedly terminated its relationship with British-Palestinian Abdel Bari Atwan, France24 Arabic warmly welcomed the rabid antisemite and staunch supporter of terrorism and ethnic cleansing.
Following contact from CAMERA, POLITICO has corrected a misleading characterization of the blatant antisemitism of France24 Arabic journalists.
During Easter Week, the Latin Patriarch, Pierbattista Pizzaballa, continued the holiday tradition of making false accusations against Jews – this time in the guise of politically charged allegations against the Israeli government and police.
Raja Abdulrahim's lengthy article underscoring the Gaza Strip's dire financial situation does not mention Hamas once, a glaring omission sure to have brought great holiday cheer to the territory's repressive regime.
The return of Jerusalem correspondent Laila Odeh to work after a brief suspension for her media posts glorifying terrorists sends a message to her France24 Arabic colleagues: it's time to return to the regularly scheduled program of anti-Israel content.
The Washington Post's world view on Israel is profoundly distorted. The newspaper's vaunted foreign affairs columnist is once again depriving Palestinians of independent agency, omitting their leadership's predilection for supporting terror and rejecting peace.
The U.S.-backed Palestinian Authority is led by an unpopular kleptocrat, Mahmoud Abbas. But as CAMERA tells Jewish Policy Center's InFocus Magazine, the end of Abbas's rule is coming, one way or the other. And the U.S. would be well advised to plan for the chaos that is likely to follow.
The ecumenical threat to life and limb posed by large crowds unprotected by adequate safety precautions doesn't stand a chance against the enduring false narrative of Israel's persecution of Christians.
Amnesty International repeatedly lies and distorts to sell its slur that Israel is guilty of "apartheid." If Amnesty had a good case, why would it need to manipulate viewers?
The names Maia, Rina, and Lucy Dee are nowhere to be found in the New York Times. And that's just the start of the problem.
As CAMERA tells the Washington Free Beacon, the 1936 Arab Revolt was, in fact, the first Palestinian intifada, and it made a tragic template for what was to come. Boycotts, rejecting peace and statehood, seeking arms from anti-Western autocrats, Palestinian leaders have been doing all of these things for nearly a century.
Iran is growing increasingly bold. The world's leading state sponsor of terrorism has launched more than eighty attacks against U.S. service members and bases in the last two years. As CAMERA tells the Washington Examiner this will have profound consequences for both the U.S. and key regional allies like Israel.
Ayman Mohyeldin’s own history makes it clear that the last person who should be lecturing anyone about not telling the whole story is Mohyeldin himself.
According to CNN International, while Israelis shoot and kill Palestinians, Israeli cars “receive” bullets and the occupants die in a “crash.” That is how, at least, two separate incidents were described during a single segment on Isa Soares Tonight.
For a network that proclaims it is the “most trusted name in news,” CNN sure can’t seem to get the story right. Its coverage of the security situation in Israel over the last few days is a stark example.
CAMERA Arabic's newest investigation unearths unchecked anti-Jewish bigotry thriving in the comments sections of France24 Arabic's social media, with several hundred comments praising deadly attacks against Jews since May 2021.
CAMERA Arabic prompts Reuters corrections in both English and Arabic after misreporting about Palestinian fatalities in an Israeli military raid in Nablus understated the number of combatants and overstated the number of civilians.
In an otherwise informative article about the Israeli navy's efforts to block Hamas' smuggling of weapons into the Gaza Strip, CAMERA prompts clarification about the impact of Israel's naval blockade on the livelihood of Gaza fishermen. Since the blockade was imposed, the fishermen's haul has increased, according to Palestinian figures.
CAMERA prompts correction after Haaretz's English edition erroneously stated that a Palestinian gunman fired on two Israeli men. In fact, the Huwara gunman fired on David and Rachel Stern, a husband and wife couple.
The Washington Post used four reporters and expensive 3D imagery to conduct an investigation into a recent IDF counterterrorist operation in which both terrorists and civilians were killed. Yet, the Post relied almost exclusively on anti-Israel sources and failed to provide essential context about why the raid was taking place.
The paper went to extraordinary lengths to obtain what it claims is evidence of Israeli wrongdoing.
The Washington Post used the holiday of Purim to attack the Jewish state. As bad, the newspaper insists on distorting and misleading about recent terrorist attacks and casualties.
CNN International’s Isa Soares brought on one deranged racist, the United Nations’s Francesca Albanese, to accuse Israelis of being deranged racists. Lest one ponder whether Soares believed “it takes one to know one” when it comes to racists, her viewers were left in the dark about Albanese’s widely known and condemned history of antisemitism.
In ruling that Jerusalem correspondent Leila Odeh is fit for reporting and in failing to probe systemic anti-Israel bias in the Arabic service, France24 gives carte blanche to on air misconduct across the board.
At Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC), “social justice and equity” mean denying Jewish indigeneity and self-determination and whitewashing violence against Jews. At least that’s the takeaway from a “visual timeline” BMCC’s “Social Justice and Equity Centers” are displaying on campus.
“We commend France24 for investigating the four journalists but are dismayed at their decision to continue employing three of them,” said Andrea Levin, CAMERA’s executive director. “How are these three journalists acceptable at a serious news outlet? They report like opinion pundits on fringe hate sites — which is where, in fact, their bigoted views belong.”
By bringing on someone with such a record of outlandish lies, and by refusing to either push back with the facts or bring on an opposing perspective that could have countered Diana Buttu’s falsehoods and calls to ethnically cleanse the land of Jews a second time, MSNBC once again shows contempt for credibility and accuracy.
On the heels of a CAMERA exposé of antisemitic social media posts by four journalists working for France24, the French state-owned news network has announced the suspension of the journalists and is currently investigating their social media pages.
Isabel DeBre erases the Islamic Jihad affiliations of young fighters to romanticize supposedly new grassroots groups of militants, ignoring the big picture of Iranian and Hamas involvement.
A CAMERA Arabic exposé reveals long records of vile antisemitism on the social media accounts of France24 Arabic journalists Joelle Maroun, Dina Abi-Saab, and Laila Odeh.
Getty Images editors ensure correction after republishing an Anadolu Turkish news agency caption which falsely identified Israel-American terror victim Elan Ganeles as an "Israeli settler."
Accuracy about biographical details of a historical figure central to a leading world religion shouldn't be too hard.
A U.S.-based nonprofit is hailing terrorist attacks against Israelis. The New York chapter of Al Awda has gone beyond the usual apologias for Palestinian terrorists. The group has openly mourned several Palestinian terrorists who were killed in a recent Israeli counterterror operation.
While the paper may be understandably disappointed in how its case against the anti-BDS law turned out, as an outlet purporting to be engaged in “feisty journalism” and “the fight for truth,” the Arkansas Times owes its readers a minimum of factual accuracy.
CAMERA prompted corrections after a caption mistakenly referred to a deadly terror attack in Kiryat Arba as "attempted." In fact, as the accompanying article itself made clear, the Palestinian terrorist succeeded in fatally shooting Israeli Ronen Hanania.
A recent Washington Post op-ed by the newspaper's former executive editor called to discard objectivity. But as CAMERA tells the Algemeiner, the Post's reporting on Israel has long been free from impartiality. And recent dispatches on terrorist attacks offer more proof.
After initially burying Iran's reported presence in the Kafar Sousah neighborhood, Times of Israel gives more prominent coverage to the area's security and intelligence installations.
It seems likely that CNN's Christiane Amanpour entirely fabricated findings from nonexistent “latest polls.” A request for substantiation sent to Amanpour has so far gone unanswered.
CAMERA prompts correction after Newsweek erred that Israel has no ties with any of the countries which sent rescue missions to Turkey. In fact, Israel has relations with more than two dozen counties which sent rescue delegations to assist after the earthquake.
Digging down on the false claim that Jordan is custodian of Jerusalem's Christian holy sites. Reuters ignores that the Hashemites renounced its limited custodial status (which had only ever held for Greek Orthodox sites) in the 1980s.
Hamas, the U.S.-designated terrorist group that calls for a Jewish genocide, has ruled the Gaza Strip for nearly two decades. A new initiative by a New York-based organization is seeking to highlight Hamas's brutal rule, by interviewing Gazans. Will the mainstream media listen?
"Her partisanship eschews objectivity and ethical news reporting, as she ceaselessly adopts the most extreme positions and smears Israel as a pariah state requiring elimination," CAMERA warned Reuters before Henriette Chacar started writing for the news agency. Her paean to a terrorist is the inevitable outcome of Reuters' failure to rein her in.
Reporters Patrick Kingsley and Raja Abdulrahim expand their enterprise of vilifying Israel as the culprit in the ongoing Palestinian-Israeli conflict by focusing on Israeli settlers.
CAMERA prompts improvement of AP captions about a Palestinian killed at a checkpoint after the texts initially omitted the army's information that Abdullah Qalalweh attempted to attack a soldier and ignored warning shots to retreat.
The Forward has resurrected long-disproved misinformation about a 2002 “massacre” in the West Bank — and that might not even be the most offensive part of the article.
NPR's Daniel Estrin and Larry Kaplow have inverted cause and effect; in the public broadcaster's illogical view, Israel’s prevention of terror attacks is responsible for terror attacks.
A story by New York Times correspondent Raja Abdulrahim seems designed to leave readers in the dark about recent bloodshed in Israel and the West Bank, concealing or downplaying that Palestinians recently killed in the West Bank were gunmen, unlike Israeli civilians murdered in Palestinian terror attacks.
A recent Gallup Poll showed that Americans have increasingly little faith in the media. The Washington Post, which just announced a new standards desk, might be working to restore trust. But as CAMERA tells the Algemeiner, when it comes to coverage of Israel, the Post has its work cut out.
Depicting Jews as willful murderers of children is a staple of antisemitism that stretches back centuries. Filmmaker Darin Sallam is keen to promote this antisemitic canard. And The Washington Post, in turn, is keen to promote Sallam.
Israeli Arab terrorists Karim and Maher Younis were convicted of the 1980 kidnapping and murder of Israeli soldier Avraham Bromberg. It's amazing how many facts about this case were misreported. With Arabic and English corrections at Reuters, AFP, France 24 and more, only The Jerusalem Post remains impervious to requests to set the record straight.
While coming from different starting points, two journalistic misdeeds— drawing a false moral equivalency and applying a double standard — end up with the same reprehensible result: minimizing and obscuring Palestinian terrorism. Coverage of the deadly Palestinian terror attack outside a Jerusalem synagogue versus a fatal Israeli arrest raid in Jenin provide a case in point.
In an article about a cartoonist's lampooning of an Israeli minister, CNN inexplicably included a cartoon recalling multiple antisemitic themes, as well as unchallenged, ahistorical commentary depicting Israelis as needlessly cruel.
Far from being centers of enlightenment and progress, too many universities are instead establishing themselves as hotbeds of bigotry and backwardness, embracing the kind of crude antisemitic conspiracy theories that helped fuel some of history’s most violently racist moments, from pogroms to the Holocaust.
A recent Washington Post report is undone by its own biases and editorializing. The article's reliance on one-sided sourcing, and its insistence on misleading omissions, leaves open questions about the direction of the newspaper's Jerusalem bureau.
Countless pundits and analysts of varying motives and backgrounds have asserted that the end is near for Israeli democracy. As CAMERA tells JNS, there’s a long history of such overheated rhetoric and overblown predictions.
On New Years Eve, a domestic terrorist attacked several New York City police officers. His motive? American support for Israel.
On the same day the Anti-Defamation League reported that disturbingly high levels of Americans believe in anti-Jewish tropes, MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace brazenly broadcasted one such trope on Deadline: White House.
Liberated ethnic studies encourages teachers to inject anti-Israel material into their classrooms and promotes political activism in place of knowledge.
The new Israeli government plans fundamental legal reforms to fix perceived vast overreach by the Supreme Court and the legal system. Critics charge the reforms foreshadow the demise of democracy. But would the reforms actually move Israel closer to the system in other parliamentary democracies?
Roth’s reaction to his rejection from Harvard's Kennedy School is simply the latest iteration of his penchant for blaming the Jews first, and asking questions later.
The extent to which disclosures of potential conflicts of interest should be enforced at a publication is, of course, a matter of legitimate debate. But by applying its own standards selectively, Opinio Juris has opened itself to valid charges of lacking both impartiality and professionalism.
The Washington Post's Jerusalem bureau has embraced editorializing. A recent Post report reads more like a partisan press release than an actual news report.
“Those who don’t learn history,” the philosopher George Santayana famously warned, “are doomed to repeat it.” But as CAMERA tells the Algemeiner, those who don't learn history are also inclined to become reporters at the Washington Post.
Iran, CAMERA tells the Washington Times, uses Africa to finance and plot terrorist activities against the United States and its allies, including Israel. Yet, the Islamic Republic's influence in Africa often goes overlooked.
After Kenneth Roth, the former head of Human Rights Watch, received a preliminary offer of a Senior Fellowship from the Carr Center at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, the offer was not approved by the Kennedy School's Dean. Roth's reaction was to lie about his own and HRW's record, and cast blame on -- surprise -- Israel and the Jews, thus illustrating why the Dean was right to nix him.
NPR downgrades the fact that the Jewish Temples were located on the Temple Mount from archeological history to Jewish tradition, and fails to challenge the false claim that Jordan is custodian of Jerusalem's Christian holy sites.
By glibly attempting to compare Israel to Bashar al-Assad's brutal regime, Amanpour once again demonstrates that she places her contempt for the Jewish state over her commitment to honesty.
The NYT recently published its10th article taking aim at Hasidic schools since September, in addition to a lengthy editorial and other features accusing that community of wrongdoing. CAMERA points out the cognitive biases and lack of evidence that mar the report, as well as the risk of fueling grievances against a community that is increasingly targeted with antisemitic assaults.
Despite one of its editors expressing such a strong position in favor of greater disclosures about an author’s potential conflicts of interest at a different legal blog, Opinio Juris’ actions thus far indicate they do not apply that standard to themselves.
CAMERA prompts Deutsche Welle corrections on two key geographical basics: First, Israel's capital is Jerusalem, not Tel Aviv. Second, the Jewish temples' location on the Temple Mount is an archeological fact, not a matter of faith.
New York Times reporter Raja Abdulrahim has a long history of anti-Israel propaganda, and her latest article adds to the toll of distortions. She and her co-author charge that the IDF "never" refers to Palestinians injured or killed in military actions as civilians. But multiple examples prove Abdulrahim is once again, at best, wrong.
"It's true that we live in an era where the facts are less and less relevant. But there is someone who insists on them," writes Israeli journalist Ben-Dror Yemini. In 2022, CAMERA buckled down on the facts, prompting a record 245 corrections in English, Arabic and Hebrew.
CAMERA prompts correction of a Reuters article which incorrectly identified the Mavi Marmara, which attempted to break Israel's legal blockade of Gaza, as an "aid ship." The Mavi Marmara's passengers were armed with weapons -- which they turned against IDF soldiers -- not aid.
Dahl’s antisemitism was about as subtle as a sledgehammer, and his hatred of Israel was steeped in his hatred of the Jewish people. So why did the Washington Post distort this fact?
Despite touting her scholarship and research, guest essayist Yara Asi provided nothing more than a clichéd menu of agitprop, devoid of both scholarship and research. It was the sort that's generally served up by the least sophisticated of anti-Israel propagandists.
Times of Israel corrects after misidentifying Jerusalem bomber Eslam Froukh as an Israeli Arab. A resident of east Jerusalem who murdered two civilians in the Nov. 23 double-bombing, he does not have Israeli citizenship.
The answer as to why these actors are so militant about appointing and defending known anti-Israel partisans and antisemites should be obvious. A fair analysis of the allegations would not produce the outcome they so desire. Whether ensuring only anti-Israel partisans are appointed to investigate Israel or crying “smear campaign” when those partisans are caught saying the quiet part out loud, these actors are invested in creating a lose-lose game for the Jewish state and the Jewish people.
Nerdeen Kiswani once threatened to set another person's IDF sweatshirt on fire while he was wearing it. Now the Journal quotes her an an authority on antisemitism.
Reuters, Haaretz and The Jerusalem Post correct headlines falsely reporting that Nasser Abu Hmeid died in Israeli prison, fueling unsubstantiated Palestinian charges of medical neglect.
UPDATE: After publishing a 'Palestine' map erasing Israel, Haaretz editors amend the caption to appropriately attribute the false designation wiping Israel off the map to Sarendib, an organization which draws inspiration from a Hamas mass murderer.
CAMERA prompts a Haaretz clarification after the English edition stated as fact that Israeli Arabs convicted of violent assaults during May 2021 riots received "disproportionate punishments," as opposed to attributing that claim to demonstrators, as the Hebrew edition rightly did.
The director of the film "Farha" has made clear the story is a work of fiction. She even invented the title character's name. So why does TIME call it a “true story”?
CAMERA Arabic’s intensive scrutiny of BBC’s Arabic coverage of Israel and the Middle East and the systematic documentation of its egregious shortcomings in reporting have resulted in significant behind-the-scenes reforms at the Arabic-language news platform.
AFP's Arabic service takes part in the World Cup's political games, with reports carefully omitting inconvenient facts unfavorable to the Qatari hosts although this information had appeared in the news agency's coverage in other languages.
Axios not only misleads on the cause of Airbnb's reversal of its boycott decision, but also omits an important component of the story: the overt discrimination involved.
AP's "clarifying" 2022 photos essay throws the news agency's anti-Israel obsession into sharp relief, putting clashes during Shireen Abu Akleh's funeral ahead of iconic Ukraine war images, leaving Iran out of the frame, and recasting an Islamic Jihad commander as a victim.
Recent NPR broadcasts continue to echo Palestinian propaganda, blaming Israel for the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and downgrading the Jewish claim to its holiest site.
Is xenophobia okay if one really dislikes the policies of a country and takes it out on individuals with that nationality? That’s what MSNBC’s Ayman Mohyeldin implied in a new column.
The Mehdi Hasan Show reached a new low when one of Mehdi’s guests argued that Jews promote antisemitism to advance “Israeli Zionist ideology.”
An online headline in yesterday’s Journal, “As Israel’s Left Suffers Defeat, So Does Two-State Solution,” ignored the many times Palestinian leadership rejected independence, inverting cause and effect.
In response to communication from CAMERA, Times of Israel amends an Agence France Presse article claiming that the Israeli-led blockade has "suffocated" the Gaza Strip's fishing industry, commendably adding data demonstrating that the fishermen's catch has significantly grown in the last 15 years.
Two former U.S. diplomats take to the pages of the Washington Post to offer what is exceedingly bad advice, calling to punish Israel and the Arab and Muslim nations who are making peace with the Jewish state.
CAMERA prompts correction after Reuters qualified the historical fact that the Jewish temples were located on the Temple Mount as unverified, citing "The site, said to have once housed two ancient Jewish temples . . ."
UPDATE: CAMERA prompts an Editor's Note after The New York Times falsely reported that Gaza's fishing industry is collapsing under the Israeli blockade, ignoring official Palestinian data showing that the catch has more than doubled in the last 15 years.
CAMERA prompts corrections after The Los Angeles Times erroneously reported that Netanyahu's new far-right partners have "threatened to criminalize homosexuality and ban non-Orthodox Jews from Israeli citizenship." Proposed changes regarding both homosexuals and non-Orthodox Jews are significant and in no way should not be taken lightly. But neither should they be misreported.
AFP amends a caption which had erroneously referred to Palestinian prisoners "who died in Israeli prisons." Eight out of the nine pictured prisoners died in medical facilities from diseases.
Several hours after Tiran Fero's family reported that Palestinian gunmen killed the Israeli Druze high schooler by unhooking his ventilator in a Jenin hospital, leading media outlets continued to ignore their account. And then CAMERA stepped in.
A recent Washington Post editorial heralded the FBI's curious investigation of the killing of Al-Jazeera employee Shireen Abu Akleh. Yet, as CAMERA tells the Algemeiner, the Post editorial board is taking part in an influence operation, not journalism.
We agree that facts must be central to any discussion of the BDS resolution and the conflict in general. This is why we’re disappointed at the student newspaper's silence over the basic factual errors and egregious omissions in the USG resolution itself. To apply the editorial board’s own words, the resolution “did not even pretend to acknowledge both sides of what, in the end, is a very nuanced situation.”
Associated Press today commendably amends incomplete captions which had initially only stated that Palestinian Haitham Shuham was shot dead by Israeli troops while failing to report why. An Israeli soldier fatally shot Shuham after he wounded a soldier, slamming a hammer into his face.

Woke Antisemitism is a firsthand account from a top Jewish leader about how woke ideology shuts down discourse, corrupts Jewish values, and spawns a virulent new strain of antisemitism.
"Breaking Travel News" loses its compass, searching for the Jewish state's capital, but turning up in Tel Aviv. The early takeoff of the travel publication's World FIFA coverage crashes and burns with anti-Israel invective demonizing the "occupation" or "apartheid" state.
“Who’s controlling the media? Who’s controlling the strong machine?” These were the questions asked at a recent UN media seminar, where officials seemed to be all too comfortable with the suggestion that a manipulative Jewish cabal is controlling the levers of power.
UPDATE: Following CAMERA action, MSN News removed from its platform a fake news story from a Sierra Leone news outlet which had fabricated that several Palestinians died Friday from tear gas inhalation.
After initially elliptically reporting on Hebron Mayor Tayseer Abu Sneineh's crime, The Times of Israel now thorough details his conviction for a deadly attack in which six were murdered, including Americans and a Canadian, and 20 wounded.
VOA states that its staff must follow the principle of presenting “a comprehensive, reliable, and unbiased description of events.” In relation to its coverage of the COI, VOA has come up well short of these principles.
When actors like the UN Commission of Inquiry perpetuate such blatantly one-sided narratives, they are not playing an impartial role.
Colonialism, the Washington Post told readers in 2016, “isn’t something to celebrate.” Yet the Post fully embraces colonialism when it is in the service of an anti-Israel narrative. The newspaper’s recent reporting and commentary provide ample proof.
After having previously displayed keen interest in the welfare of animals in the Palestinian territories, Agence France Presse, Reuters and Associated Press suddenly bolted when the mayor of Hebron offered a 20 shekel bounty for each slaughtered dog.
BBC issues a rare apology acknowledging its years-long failure to properly address complaints concerning its Arabic coverage of Israel following CAMERA Arabic’s submission of dozens of corrections requests.

Children’s books aiming at even-handedness on the Arab-Israeli conflict usually fail – as novels, because they’re didactic, and as political tracts, because they’re inaccurate. The books that do succeed are most often by Israelis, who write what they live and have no illusions.

Children’s books aiming at even-handedness on the Arab-Israeli conflict usually fail – as novels, because they’re didactic, and as political tracts, because they’re inaccurate. The books that do succeed are most often by Israelis, who write what they live and have no illusions.
The widely used IHRA definition of antisemitism was recently adopted by a major government in the Washington D.C. area. Unfortunately, the Washington Post omitted key details about the definition, including its history and use.
Two more Western media outlets deceive news consumers by depicting a Palestinian terrorist group as heroic fighters and Israeli counter-terrorist operations as the real evil.
At Oberlin, the Jewish Studies department appears to be part of the problem, not part of the solution. But readers would never know this from the CJN's effusive coverage.
For all their high-minded rhetoric about free speech and expression, some “human rights” activists and lawyers seem zealously opposed to allowing debate. As a recent conference panel demonstrated, this is particularly true among those who seek to besmirch the Jewish state with substantively empty accusations of “apartheid” and “racism.” However, after efforts by CAMERA and others to counteract this behavior, purveyors of the libel – and their sponsors – now know they will not be left unchallenged.
CNN is extremely diligent about highlighting the most deadly days for Palestinians. When it comes to the terror activity of the Palestinian casualties, the news network's reporting is suddenly not so fastidious.
The Washington Post continues to project its coverage, thoughts and opinions about U.S. politics to the Israeli political sphere. And when its preferred parties and candidates appear to be losing, it claims that democracy is under threat.
AP's Tia Goldenberg spins the tale that Maj. Gen. Herzl Halevi's appointment as chief of staff caps the settlers' transformation from a fringe group to Israel's mainstream. The political reality and voting record belie her predetermined, facts-be-damned narrative.
One of the most absurd fronts in an ongoing Arab/Palestinian war on Israel’s legitimacy is the inane fight about who owns the original recipe of popular food. It is part of a larger campaign conducted by detractors of the Jewish state. And the New York Times has, once again, weighed in with a story that highlights their views.
CAMERA Arabic puts the breaks on the omnipresent Arabic media formulation falsely casting Tel Aviv as Israel's capital, prompting 17 corrections in two months.
CAMERA prompts a slew of corrections after AP erroneously reported that Australia has recognized Tel Aviv as Israel's capital.
CAMERA prompts English and Arabic corrections after Reuters erroneously characterized all of Israel's Karish gas field as claimed by Lebanon. In fact, Lebanon claimed only a northern portion of the gas field
Waters claims that he’s “absolutely not” antisemitic, yet he uses euphemistic language to argue against the existence of one tiny state in which Jews control their own destiny and can find refuge from persecution.
Hasan’s lame attempts to cast Omar’s repeated employment of classic antisemitic tropes as merely “criticism of Israel,” alongside his constant efforts to politicize antisemitism, serve as a reminder that bigotry, including antisemitism, must be combatted because it is morally reprehensible, not because it is politically convenient.
On October 22nd, the American Branch of the International Law Association (ABILA) – a prominent organization of legal scholars and practitioners – will work to help normalize the antisemitic “apartheid” libel against the Jewish state.
In the New York Times, an article about the observance of Judaism's holiest day, Yom Kippur, becomes a vehicle for eroding Israel's legitimacy as a Jewish state.
A recent Washington Post article is replete with errors, both of omission and co-mission. The Post parrots anti-Israel propaganda and fails to provide readers with essential background and history.
Once you boil away the antisemitism and false claims, Crossette’s article comes down to the fact that a Jewish opinion editor and an Israeli ambassador separately expressed opposition to a bigot being honored with an award, and the only conclusion Crossette can find is that there is an “Israel lobbying campaign,” instead of two Jews having an understandable problem with antisemites being honored in Germany in 2022.
CAMERA's Israel office prompts correction after Reuters, counter to its own style, referred to a judge's ruling against Ben & Jerry's bid to stop ice cream sales in "Palestine."
The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of antisemitism has been adopted by 38 countries, a majority of US states, and most of the organized American Jewish community.
Associated Press immediately covered Booking.com's decision Friday to warn customers against Israeli settlements as being located in "occupied territory" and therefore posing "high risks to safety and human rights." Yet, two days after Booking.com's decision Saturday to apply warnings to all West Bank properties — Israeli and and Palestinian alike — AP's story on that critical reversal is still stuck at the gate.
A recent NYT "critics pick" was "Foragers," a partisan, political film on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by Palestinian filmmaker Jumana Manna. Reviewer Will Heinrich not only accepts the filmmaker’s messaging as unvarnished truth, but bolsters and amplifies it in his own words to falsely suggest Israel is an apartheid state.
AP highlights the fatal shooting of four Palestinian gunmen attacking Israeli troops as a "deadliest episode," even as the news agency downplays the fatalities' violence and terror affiliations. But the murder of three Israelis sitting in a Tel Aviv bar? Until CAMERA intervened, the only thing the wire service found deadly about that incident was the cops' killing of the Palestinian gunman "who attacked a bar."
U.S. support for Israel isn't a byproduct of some shadowy lobby argues the scholar Walter Russell Mead in his new book. Rather, its part of a long American tradition.
A recent Washington Post report contains valuable information and offers a welcome look at an often-neglected subject: Palestinian politics. Yet, the article is undone by its whitewashing of anti-Jewish violence and terrorism.
Iran, CAMERA tells The National Interest, is looking to seize Judea and Samaria. And with the growing unpopularity of the Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas, whose ruling Fatah movement is losing control over key cities, it might just get its chance.
Israel, CAMERA tells JNS, is bracing itself for an increase in terrorist attacks before the High Holidays. And it is incumbent upon the press to report that Israeli authorities have concrete warnings of the terror headed their way.
For the second week in a row, the front page of the New York Times featured an article that either provided fuel for antisemitism or sanitized those who have been accused of it. The latest purports to expose the role of Russian disinformation in dividing the Women’s March protest movement, but downplays the antisemitism of the movement's leaders, particularly that of Linda Sarsour, and whitewashes the BDS movement she promotes.
CAMERA prompts correction of an otherwise informative and thoughtful Christian Science Monitor editorial which had erroneously placed Israel's Karish gas rig in disputed waters. In fact, the Energean rig sits six miles southwest of the maritime boundary claimed by Lebanon.
The City University of New York (CUNY) has a deep antisemitism problem. This is no secret. Reports of antisemitic incidents have been streaming out for years. What is particularly disturbing, however, is the role that has been played by CUNY faculty and particularly the administrators.
NBC News' biography of Mehdi Hasan claims he is “an award-winning journalist known for riveting one-on-one conversations.” Based on his recent segment featuring the cofounders of Ben & Jerry’s, whatever awards Hasan may have won should be surrendered and instead given to Axios’ Alexi McCammond.
Without holding an unrepentant journalist employed by a publicly funded media outlet accountable for her antisemitism and incitement against Israeli civilians, how meaningful is Germany stated repentance for its past tolerance towards Palestinian terrorism?
The New York Times’ latest piece on the death of Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, written by editorial board member Serge Schmemann, is yet another example of the newspaper setting facts to the side to promote an anti-Israel narrative.
A much ballyhooed New York Times investigation of Hasidic schools includes multiple aspersions that feed into anti-Jewish tropes about money, greed and exploitation. These are cast without context, statistics or other rigorous, supportive evidence. It is a style of advocacy journalism that fuels antisemitism and undermines what would be better achieved with a properly contextualized and statistically supported report.
CAMERA Arabic prompts multiple corrections after Arabic reports in BBC, Deutsche Welle and i24News falsely referred to Jewish communities within Israel's pre-1967 lines as "settlements."
CAMERA prompts AFP to amend captions which had initially omitted that Palestinian Hamad Mustafa Hussein Abu Jelda, fatally injured in a gun battle with Israeli troops, belonged to the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, a designated terror organization
As CAMERA tells Washington Examiner magazine it is all too rare for reporters covering the Middle East to provide analysis that is free from partisanship and bias. But veteran reporter Michael Gordon's newly published book on the fight against ISIS offers a masterclass lesson on how to do so.
UPDATE: After originally casting Iranian threats to annihilate Israel as nothing more than an Israeli claim, and ignoring the deep skepticism of IAEA and Western powers about a peaceful Iranian nuclear program, Reuters steps back from the journalistic abyss, rectifying the article's initial egregious shortcomings.
Not for the first time, Agence France Presse erased Nasser Abu Hamid's seven murder convictions, presenting him only as a Palestinian prisoner sick with cancer while withholding any indication about why he might be in jail.
While BBC Arabic and Al Hurra commendably corrected after inaccurately designating all of Israel's Karish gas field as disputed by Lebanon, Associated Press declines to clarify captions which uncritically parrot Hezbollah talking points falsely portraying the maritime resource as Lebanese.
There is a growing bipartisan consensus in Washington that China is a threat to the U.S. Yet, as CAMERA tells the publication 1945 a new Iran Deal will only benefit China.
CNN’s story selectively quoted the IDF to reinforce its misleading depiction of events that dramatically understates the level of violence Israeli forces encountered during the operation.
After inflating the extent of the maritime border dispute between Lebanon and Israel, both Al Hurra and BBC Arabic have corrected, bringing the disagreement around the Karish gas field back down to its proper proportions.
Given that the Palestinian government has choices about how to spend its funds, AFP's assertion that "There are insufficient funds to meet the needs of the territory's intellectually disabled" is not a factual statement. It's editorializing. The PA has chosen terrorists over the intellectually disabled.
Someone quit their job at Google. The New York Times turned it into (anti-Israel) news by hiding critical facts from their readers.
The Philadelphia Inquirer has launched nothing short of an advocacy campaign on behalf of a private school teacher who was reportedly fired for her history of antisemitic comments. And as CAMERA tells the Algemeiner, the Inquirer is working hard to hide the woman's antisemitism.
After falsely reporting that Israeli airstrikes were responsible for all reported 49 casualties in Gaza earlier this month, MSNBC's Ayman Mohyeldin acknowledges: "[W]e should have also noted AP reported evidence that 14 of those were killed by errant rockets fired from the Palestinian side."
There simply aren’t many examples of antisemitism targeted at Jews as Jews more obvious than Miloon Kothari’s remarks in July. Yet, Beinart and his cosignatories still chose to depict them as merely “insensitive” and as “criticism of Israel.”
By withholding the essential "detail" that Islamic Jihad claimed Salama Abed as one of its commanders, AP advances the false narrative of "war on Gaza," as opposed to war on a terror organization. UPDATE: In response to CAMERA's persistent communication, AP adds that Abed belonged to Islamic Jihad.
Reuters' report about Syrian claims of an Israeli strike "targeting the cities of Hama and Tartus" ignored information that the target was an Iranian-backed militia site and weapons depot.
Palestinian Holocaust distortion is more widespread than the public might imagine. It is antisemitic at its core and is an obstacle to peace.
In the face of a rising tide of anti-Semitism, CNN deserves praise for presenting its special report Rising Hate: Antisemitism in America, but it’s important to note the report had both positive and negative aspects, including crucial omissions, such as noting that anti-Semitism comes from the left and the right, while failing to actually name any guilty parties on the left.
If Dana Bash and CNN don’t start at home and address the network’s own failures, then its “Rising Hate” special will come across simply as moral lecturing in the quest for ratings.
Fatah, the movement that dominates the Palestinian Authority, has a long history of intimidating and harassing journalists. But as CAMERA tells the Washington Times this is a story that the media ignores.
CNN International acted less like a legitimate media outlet focused on serious journalism and more like a public relations agency on behalf of the designated organizations.
"[O]ur values drive our curation decisions," said Apple CEO Tim Cook in 2018 as he accepted an ADL "Courage Against Hate" Award. Months later, Apple News granted Abdel Bari Atwan, a Palestinian-British journalist with a long record antisemitic and terror-supporting statements, a regular platform. What does that say about Apple's values?
The Conde Nast publication does not seem to have bothered to find out from any of the businesses or friends who dissociated themselves from Hadid what, specifically, they found so objectionable
A terrible war is looming in the Middle East and, as CAMERA tells JNS, American taxpayer dollars are making it both more likely and more devastating.
ABC correspondents Ines de la Cuetara and Reena Roy falsely charge that Israeli airstrikes were responsible for all of the Gaza casualties earlier this month, ignoring that errant Islamic Jihad rockets were the culprit in a significant number of cases.
CAMERA examines the Washington Post's coverage of Operation Breaking Dawn and finds a curious pattern of one-sided omissions and misrepresentations.
The Western media has increasingly abetted Palestinian propaganda efforts to erase the Jewish claim to Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. Far too many journalists today accept the historic revisionism and political falsehoods put out by Palestinian activists and leaders and promote it with their own jargon and linguistic tricks.
There is a pattern at the UN of selecting those with a demonstrable enmity towards the Jewish state for positions dealing with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The Commission of Inquiry members are only three examples. Media consumers beware.
Without uttering a single word, France 24 Arabic loudly broadcasted its displeasure with Morocco's first official state welcome for a high-level Israeli visitor.
UPDATE: CAMERA prompts correction of an AP Week in Pictures feature which misidentified outgoing Islamic Jihad rockets launched from Gaza towards Israel as "Israeli airstrikes."
"In Gaza, denial and doubt over misfire rocket claims," is Reuters' headline. In reality, though, it's Reuters which is drowning in denial.
Contrary to Reuters' reporting, Hamas shares Islamic Jihad's total commitment to the destruction of Israel and complete rejection of compromise. Reuters' false claim that Hamas has softened its commitment to these essential principles reflects a softening of the news agency's commitment to its own Trust Principles.
After investigations find that a misfired Palestinian rocket killed seven Palestinians in Jabaliya, NBC News seemed intent on obscuring the facts.
Contrary to what the teen fashion magazine would like readers to believe, using extremely biased sources to tell a one-sided, anti-Israel story is not a Jewish value.
Hasan has consistently employed these dishonest tactics to present a skewed narrative that leaves his audience not only misinformed, but entirely ignorant of basic background.
Aug. 24 UPDATE: CNN belatedly amends after falsely citing "settlers" "storming Al-Aqsa mosque." The improved text adds critical context about the Temple Mount's status as Judaism's holiest site.
United Press International whitewashes designated terror organization Islamic Jihad as "pro-liberation forces," while observers in the Gulf slam the organization as an Iranian tool carrying out the regime's agenda at the expense of the Palestinian people.
During the recent fighting Islamic Jihad fired at least 935 rockets and mortars at Israel, about 160 of them falling short and hitting Gaza. The errant rockets likely accounted for almost half the current Gaza death toll.
CAMERA prompts corrections at Reuters and AP after the major news agencies reduce approximately one million fleeing Israelis to "tens of thousands."
Even as the news network's ratings and profitability continue to decline, CNN continues to degrade the public trust in its reporting.
There is something deeply objectionable about leaving three individuals known for making antisemitic statements empowered to use the imprimatur of the UN to uniquely delegitimize Jewish self-determination.
Islamic Jihad claimed Dherar al-Kafrini, killed during an Israeli arrest raid in Jenin, as "our heroic martyr." For Associated Press, that makes the young terrorist a prime candidate for a biographical touch up.
UPDATED: Reuters commendably corrects after erroneously reporting that most residents of the Gaza Strip live in refugee camps. According to the UN, around 25 percent reside in refugee camps.
"Palestinians say Israeli fire kills teen in West Bank rally" cites today's AP headline regarding a violent clash. It's just one instance this week in which media whitewash Palestinian violence.
FIRE has played an important and admirable role in American society, standing up for one of our most important democratic values. It’s thus perplexing that the group’s position on the IHRA definition rests on an obvious factual error.
At a certain point, when a discussion throws important facts aside in favor of a narrative that points at a perceived Jewish organization as “corrupting,” “poisoning,” and “dominating” a country’s politics, it begins to reek of a certain phenomenon known as “antisemitism.” No amount of tokenizing a “really Jewish” congressman can paper over that.
Given AIPAC's support for two-state solution advocate Rep. Hayley Stevens, the notion that AIPAC "is trying to take out" rival Rep. Andy Levin "because he backs a two-state solution" is ludicrous.
Laila Odeh, Jerusalem correspondent for France 24 Arabic, sinks into a baseless conspiracy theory alleging a U.S.-Israeli cover up of Shireen Abu Akleh's killing.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time an MSNBC host has been sloppy with the story of Shireen Abu Akleh’s death.
Based on his latest piece for Salon, it appears Chris Hedges understands the only way to support his superficial worldview is by falsifying the record.
The National Council of Social Studies (NCSS) recently issued a strong position statement on antisemitism statement encouraging educators to examine their understanding of the Jewish people and consider what constitutes antisemitism. It comes in response to recent attacks on Jewish citizens and an increase in antisemitism within American society. The position statement addresses the inaccurate portrayals of Jews that are promoted in schools by Liberated Ethnic Studies programs, among others.
The Boston Mapping Project, launched on June 3, 2022, is the latest variant of BDS poison and reflects the movement's anti-Jewish bigotry. The sinister and thus far anonymous map targets scores of Jewish organizations in New England and has sparked concern about its shocking premise and stated aims – to disrupt and dismantle the Boston Jewish community. It appears, however, to have backfired. The intense pushback by politicians, the FBI and the Massachusetts Department of Justice, has deepened rifts in the BDS movement over tactics -- whether to call openly for "resistance by all means" (that is, violence) or to maintain the pretense of being non-violent, human rights advocates.
When a news picture fails to speak for itself, and the news caption fails to speak for it, news consumers lose out. AP captions ignore that Israeli airstrikes a) were in response to Palestinian rocket fire and b) targeted Hamas' rocket production facilities.
Media coverage of Israel is, with growing frequency, more comparable to activism than actual journalism. Indeed, as the Shireen Abu Akleh controversy highlights, journalists are failing to ask basic questions while simultaneously giving platforms and awards to activists masquerading as reporters.
War is coming to the Middle East. And as CAMERA tells The National Interest, it is going to be unlike any war in decades. Iran is close to becoming a nuclear power. And Israel will not allow that to happen.
CAMERA prompts an NBC correction clarifying that Jewish settlements are located on disputed land that Palestinians hope will form part of a future state.
Longtime CNN host Fareed Zakaria apparently failed to get the memo from his new bosses directing CNN content towards fact-based journalism.
June 2022 marks the fortieth anniversary of the IDF's Operation Peace for Galilee, in which Israeli forces entered Lebanon to deter and destroy Palestinian terrorists who were using the country to launch attacks. As CAMERA tells JNS, the war was a turning point for media coverage of the Jewish state.
For a case study in confirmation bias, one need only look at the statement issued by a UN spokesperson for the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (“OHCHR”) on the death of Shireen Abu Akleh.
Determined to Stay: Palestinian Youth Fight for Their Village

Israel’s enemies are finding ways to infiltrate curriculum, using fashionable buzzwords like “intersectionality” to camouflage hatred of Israel. Sokolower’s book exemplifies this deceptive practice.

Israel’s enemies are finding ways to infiltrate curriculum, using fashionable buzzwords like “intersectionality” to camouflage hatred of Israel. Sokolower’s book exemplifies this deceptive practice.
Although the Wilson Center promotes itself as "the nation’s key non-partisan policy forum," a piece by outgoing Fellow Laura Robson, masquerading as a scholarly analysis, puts forth a collection of hackneyed propaganda claims against Israel.
A recent Washington Post investigation insinuated that Israeli Defense Forces killed Al Jazeera correspondent Shireen Abu Akleh. Yet, the Post reached its verdict in advance, with some reporters accusing the IDF of a “cold-blooded murder” only hours after her death, before the facts were known.
MSNBC’s audience deserves, at the very least, a clear view of all the relevant facts and evidence. By omitting material information, Mohyeldin instead turned his partisan commentary into active dishonesty.
The Washington Post's recent story cited an “electrical engineer and activist,” using him to steer the story. In fact, he's a known anti-Israel activist with a documented history of associating with antisemites. To the Post this makes him a trusted source. That's “journalism” in 2022.
Adopting Palestinian and Arab nationalist perspectives at odds with well established facts, France24’s Arabic-speaking reporters, hosts and commentators make extensive use of biased terminology and leveled unfounded assertions.
From Iraq to Kashmir, Syria to Sri Lanka, and Lebanon to Afghanistan, AFP and AP have proven to be very well acquainted with the Islamic State flag. When an IS flag emerged last week at a Palestinian funeral in Jenin, why did the photo services suddenly seem to suffer a bout of amnesia?
The Los Angeles Times outflanks CNN as the mainstream Western media which has adopted the most fantastical, most journalistically-challenged conclusion about the unsolved fatal shooting of Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh.
Haaretz's English edition commendably clarifies after misleadingly reporting that Palestinians resided in Masafer Yatta, a disputed area in the southern Hebron hills, "for generations."
Reality – with which HRW has a tenuous relationship – can be rather inconvenient and complicated. But if HRW seeks to maintain any shred of credibility as a fact-driven, impartial institution, it cannot simply sweep away these complicating and inconvenient factors in pursuit of a partisan narrative.
What is "Jewish Voice for Peace"? It is an anti-Semitic hate group that masquerades as a Jewish social justice, peace-promoting organization. And the mainstream media has largely covered up for it. CAMERA's backgrounder has been expanded and updated to evidence the depths to which the group has sunk in demonstrating its radical anti-Jewish bigotry. It now promotes resources for anti-Semitic engagement and classic, anti-Jewish blood libels that inspired so many massacres of Jews over the years.
The UN’s newest anti-Israel “Commission of Inquiry” published its first report on June 7. The report itself is mostly recycled allegations against Israel published in past UN reports, but it would be a mistake to dismiss the report as a complete dud.
If further proof were needed that the anti-Israel BDS campaign antisemitic, a venomous “mapping” campaign defaming and targeting Boston-area Jews provides stunning evidence.
The Washington Post's coverage of Israel's recent Jerusalem Day reveals the newspaper's bias against the Jewish state. The Post failed, yet again, to discern the true source of the Israel-Islamist conflict: Palestinian rejection of Jewish social and political equality.
“We need an investigation! (But we already know the outcome....)” is the pseudo-journalistic theme of this article.
The anti-Jewish bigotry that characterizes the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement has become even more apparent as BDS activists have created a local map in Massachusetts to target Jews for being Jews. CAMERA’s backgrounder documents the fundamental anti-Jewish nature of this movement and how it has become a haven for anti-Semites to indulge their racism.
Given the UN’s history, it will be unsurprising to most that the report is riddled with dubious narratives of villainous Israelis and powerless Palestinians. As is also usually the case with the UN, the report is also filled with basic factual errors.
The media is committed to fashioning a narrative in which Israel is wantonly assassinating journalists. A recent statement by the National Press Club, and several articles and tweets from the Washington Post, among others, proves it.
Today (June 7), the United Nations “Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, and in Israel” (“COI”) published its first report to the Human Rights Council. Provided below are four important facts about the COI for journalists and their audiences to understand in evaluating the credibility and content of the report, including some brief commentary on the contents of the report itself.
CAMERA Arabic prompts both Agence France Presse's Arabic service and U.S. government Arabic broadcaster Al Hurra to correct erroneous references to 1967 East Jerusalem as “the Palestinian portion of the city.”
The Washington Post and Politico are committed to anti-Israel narratives. When it comes to news coverage about the Jewish state, both outlets repeatedly omit and distort facts.
Flags cover the bodies of Palestinian fatalities, plainly confirming the deceased's terror organization membership. Despite the highly visible insignias, major Western news agencies cover up the Palestinian casualty's terror affiliations.
On June 13, the United Nation’s new Commission of Inquiry (“COI”) against Israel is scheduled to deliver its first report. Created after the conflict in May 2021, the COI is just the latest addition to the UN’s overflowing arsenal of weaponry against the Jewish state. Here is some basic background information that everyone, including both journalists and their audiences, needs to know.
Matti Friedman's latest book, Who By Fire, chronicles the singer Leonard Cohen's trip to Israel during the 1973 Yom Kippur War. As CAMERA tells the Washington Examiner magazine, both Cohen and the Jewish state were facing an existential crisis.
Notwithstanding Green’s stated aim to convey facts to his viewers, a number of Green’s claims more closely resemble a genre of writing at which he excels: fiction.
Despite earlier criticisms, the U.S. State Department has decided to treat Amnesty International as a credible source. And as CAMERA told the Algemeiner, it isn't the first instance of Foggy Bottom giving undue credibility to antisemites. Rather, it is more evidence of a long-running pattern.
Like a sea of flapping flags proudly signaling national fervor, an abundance of articles and captions colorfully broadcast journalists' unabashed double standard when it comes to reporting on Palestinian versus Israeli nationalists.
Journalists should ask Representative Tlaib whether she agrees with Osama Siblani’s statements made on that day.
Cobbling together speculation, assumptions, mindreading witnesses, and partisan “experts,” CNN falls far short of proving the serious allegation that Israeli forces deliberately targeted Abu Akleh.
Al Jazeera Palestine passes off a 1955 photograph from Algeria as documentation of an alleged Israeli massacre 1948 in Tantura, raising additional questions about the network's credibility with respect to the killing of Shireen Abu Aqleh.
Where are the newsroom adults to put a stop to the juvenile practice of compromising journalistic duties when it comes to coverage of Palestinian teen assailants?
Contained in all the recent slanderous reports accusing Israel of “apartheid” are the claims that various Israeli laws discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, nationality, or religion... Yet here we have the PA, which makes a distinction that is clearly not based on citizenship, as are those Israeli laws, but instead on an actual, unjustifiable form of discrimination (the murder of Jews, specifically).
The submission shows that the students involved have failed to comprehend basic concepts of the rule of law. From committing basic legal analytical errors that would get them laughed out of court to getting basic facts wrong, here are just seven of the errors made in the submission.
UK Lawyers for Israel (UKLFI) and the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis (CAMERA) exposed numerous factual and legal errors in Harvard's International Human Rights Clinic's (IHRC) submission to the United Nations that slanderously accused Israel of being an apartheid state.
According to Iran, Sayyad Khodai was the heroic champion of Shiite sites threatened by Al Qaeda terrorists. According to Israeli press reports, Khodai was the mastermind behind plots to assassinate Israeli civilians. International media report the former and ignore the latter.
Like Ilan Pappe, Mehdi Hasan rewrites history not by exposing new facts, but by omitting facts and context.
Why is Columbia Journalism Review, the flagship publication of Columbia University’s prestigious Graduate School of Journalism, advancing the collapse of ethical journalism in favor of what Arab journalists working under repressive regimes call "journalism in the service of the revolution?"
The Times of Israel updated its piece after suggesting police lied about being pelted with objects. The new piece reflects reporting that police prevented funeral attendees from making off with the casket against the family's wishes.
Like polluting empty plastic bottles strewn about, international media headlines devoid of key facts litter the information landscape and diminish public enlightenment.
CAMERA prompts correction of Associated Press captions which stated as fact the unverified claim that Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh "was shot dead by Israeli forces."
Quiz time! Can you distinguish BDS from its parody? The stances of the factually and morally bankrupt BDS are virtually indistinguishable from satire. The New York Times gets lost in BDS' smoke and mirrors.
AFP updates with more careful coverage after running a headline which stated as fact the unverified, disputed claim that Israeli troops fatally shot Al Jazeera's Shireen Abu Aqleh.
When MSNBC has to excuse Velshi’s inaccuracies by claiming he wasn’t actually talking about factual reality, or that he was speaking overly broadly by using “shorthand,” that demonstrates the profound recklessness with which Velshi treats facts and accuracy.
CAMERA prompts corrections of multiple Getty Images captions which erroneously referred to Palestinians in the Gaza Strip celebrating the holiday of Eid al-Fitr "against a backdrop of war."
The Harvard Crimson has published an Editorial titled "In Support of Boycott, Divest, Sanctions and a Free Palestine." Despite the editorial's portentous style, as a Harvard alumnus (GSAS 1987) I do feel it’s important to respond in an instructive way, since there seems to be much these Harvard students are unaware of. For example, that it's silly to call for BDS when Israel has agreed multiple times to a Palestinian state, only to have the Palestinians reject it. Maybe these Harvardians should start boycotting certain Palestinians and Palestinian supporters instead.
Two flags are plainly visible in an AP photograph: Hamas' green flag and the Palestinian flag. So why did the news agency initially cite the Palestinian flag, ignoring the equally prominent flag of the terror organization?
Without permission, anti-Israel activists used the UNICEF USA logo to promote and give a false veneer of credibility to their event featuring an apologist for terrorism and Holocaust denial.
This is the second time in recent days that an MSNBC host has claimed Israel has not adequately supported the United States position on the issue of Ukraine.
Amnesty International, having been given multiple opportunities to respond when directly presented with evidence that it inaccurately presented a key figure in its “apartheid” report against Israel, has gone silent.
Hasan’s comments highlight a reality about much of anti-Israel activism. Criticism of Israel isn’t so much based on what Israel does or doesn’t do, as the activists will find a way to criticize it either way. Instead, criticism of Israel is about its existence in the first place.
CAMERA prompts correction of Agence France Presse photo captions which misidentified the northern Israeli kibbutz of Misgav Am as a "settlement."
Last year, Ramadan anti-Israel incitement and violence — in the guise of a Jihad for Jerusalem — saw many in the mainstream media ignore the historic patterns of provocation by the Palestinian leadership and instead echo their pretexts blaming Israel. Media reporting this year follows the same pattern.
The New York Times recently hired someone who insisted that the killing of a Hamas commander during the 2021 Hamas war an Israeli "murder." She is expected to fit in well at a newspaper that has cultivated its anti-Israel bias.
The abandonment of ethical journalism in favor of partisanship reflects the open embrace of anti-Israel narrative which, like faith, is not dependent on facts. Under this paradigm, the historic fact of the ancient Jewish temples' location on the Temple Mount is massaged into nothing more than a matter of Jewish faith.
Contrary to Bloomberg reporting, Israeli Arabs mostly don't identify as Palestinian and not all Israelis are required to complete military service. Does "The Bloomberg Way," that is "Be accurate, there is no such thing as being first if the news is wrong," still apply?
The statement also exposes the emptiness of the supposed “principles” of individuals like El-Kurd. While openly calling for the ethnic cleansing of Jews, her social media accounts are replete with cries to “#EndEthnicCleansing.” It’s yet another example of how much of anti-Israel activism is not about principled human rights, but about the destruction of the Jewish state and the denial of Jewish self-determination.
Today Hezbollah is the largest and most well-equipped terrorist organization in the world, with a presence on nearly every continent. But as CAMERA tells The National Interest, the group's rise can be traced back to the winter and early spring months of 1992, three decades ago.
The New York Times twists and contorts in order to draw an equivalence between innocent Israeli Jews, Arabs, and Druze mowed down by terrorists and Palestinians killed while attacking Israeli soldiers.
In the spring of 2022, Israel was struck by a series of Arab terror attacks. Palestinian violence in the weeks that followed led to clashes on the Temple Mount and the deaths of Palestinian attackers. A timeline keeps track of events.
Violent crime, including homicides, has been skyrocketing in some of Israel's Arab communities. But while a disinterested press tries to blame Israel, a growing body of evidence links the increase to Iran. As CAMERA tells the Jewish Policy Center's inFOCUS Magazine, Tehran is funneling arms into Israel.
Teen Vogue has a long history of publishing biased articles against Israel, so it’s hard to see this omission as merely a well-intentioned mistake.
Around the same time Palestinian rioters were attacking the Jewish holy site of Joseph’s Tomb, the UN’s latest anti-Israel inquiry was willingly lending its ear to someone who had just a week earlier used a pair of events to claim the Muslim holy site of al-Aqsa Mosque was in danger.
Once again, the New York Times has taken aim at Jewish history. Once again, in doing so, the paper has shown that, given the choice between embracing anti-Israel narratives or straightforward, factual journalism, it too often chooses the former.
Numerous Agence France Presse captions about 17-year-old Palestinian Muhammad Zakarneh, fatally wounded by Israeli fire, omit the key information that according to the Israeli army, the teen had fired upon Israeli soldiers.
AFP provides a false symmetry, concealing the glaring asymmetry which defines this latest round of violence, and each round before this one: the Israeli casualties were all terror victims. Virtually all of Palestinian casualties were perpetrators, carrying out violent attacks.
While AP's amended headline acknowledges a firebombing, it still fails to make clear that the slain Palestinian perpetrated that attack.
Eyewitness Palestine promotes the falsehood that Israel is an apartheid state that engages in ethnic cleansing, introduces the participants on its trips to leaders of anti-Israel NGOs, and encourages those participants to engage in anti-Israel activism upon their return to the US.
With the return of intensive Palestinian violence targeting civilians on Israel's street, language in international media reports recasting perpetrators as victims also threaten to make a comeback after having largely retreated.
While Vice has done an exemplary job shining light on problems with antisemitism at Deutsche Welle Arabic, hateful anti-Israel content continues to fester at Vice Arabia.
As part of ongoing negotiations with Iran over its nuclear weapons program, Tehran is demanding that the U.S. delist the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO). But as CAMERA tells the NY Sun, the IRGC has a long history of supporting terrorist groups, including al-Qaeda.
Editors in Los Angeles and London snip away at information in wire stories exposing Palestinians as anything other than victims.
Haaretz's English edition commendably corrects after having erroneously referred to Amir Bedas, an Israeli Arab killed by an explosive device, as "Palestinian."
Following contact from CAMERA, The Hill corrected an erroneous reference to Tel Aviv as Israel's capital.
Within hours of an AP report giving favorable coverage to the proponents of the false Palestine-Ukraine analogy, the slaughter of two peaceful Ukrainians by a Palestinian terrorist in the heart of central Israel unmasks the comparison's absurdity.
On Tuesday night, a Palestinian terrorist went on a shooting spree in Bnei Brak with an assault rifle, murdering 5 people, bringing the total # of victims killed in terror attacks over the past days to 11. It followed an attack in Hadera on Sunday and another days earlier in Be'er Sheva. It comes against a backdrop of incitement just days before the Muslim holy month of Ramadan commences, and evokes last year's Ramadan violence -- the Jihad for Jerusalem that culminated in the Hamas war against Israel. To report accurately about incitement and violence, journalists should be prepared and armed with the knowledge of recent and past history.
Some questions and answers about the campaign to slur Israel as an apartheid state and to rid the world of its one Jewish state.
Two recent reports by mainstream U.S. news outlets highlight the media's failure to treat antisemitism seriously. Both the Washington Post and the Philadelphia Inquirer profiled individuals with a history of antisemitism, only to omit or obfuscate the antisemitism itself.
A new or resurrected Iran deal, supposedly intended to delay or stop Iran’s nuclear weapons program but perhaps doing the opposite, may soon be concluded. Former senior U.S. official Gabriel Noronha believes it’s even worse than the original, and that negotiator Robert Malley deserves much of the blame.
One seeking any more proof of the antisemitism behind much of the obscene accusations of Israel being an “apartheid” state need look no further than the new United Nations (“UN”) report that will be presented to the UN Human Rights Council (“UNHRC”) on March 24.
In a striking double standard, AFP finds private Israeli citizens calling for "Death to Arab" newsworthy, but not official and repeated government Hamas praise for "the heroic Beersheba operation."
From student editor responsible for publication of a notorious cartoon dripping in antisemitic motifs to Los Angeles Times tech writer practicing unethical journalism in service of the anti-Israel BDS (boycott, divest, sanctions) movement, it was a short road for Suhauna Hussain.
By labeling Israel as a “colonial occupier,” the Palestinians and their enablers at the UNHRC are using the same antisemitic strategy they frequently employ at UNESCO to delink Jews from their indigenous homeland and their holy sites.
A recent column by a USA Today producer raises questions about the newspaper's commitment to its own standards and guidelines. The article absurdly equates Russia's invasion of Ukraine to the Israel-Islamist conflict, and it covers for Hamas, a terrorist group that calls for Israel's destruction.
BDS activists are amplifying their vilification campaign against the Jewish state with the help of the local NPR station, WXXI.
History shows it doesn't take much for Gaza sources to override the essential journalistic dose of skepticism. After gargantuan flour consumption and Israeli-induced flooding, the latest tall tale hits the MRI machine-bereft territory: soaring mountains of spent batteries as high as the Arc de Triomphe.
Media outlets, the Washington Post foremost among them, are trying to use Russia's invasion of Ukraine to slander the Jewish state. But as CAMERA tells the Algemeiner: don't let them get away with it.
With great certainty and little accuracy, Haaretz's editorial posits that the citizenship law preventing West Bank Palestinians from obtaining citizenship through marriage applies only when the spouse is an Arab citizens of Israel. In fact, the law equally applies to the few Israeli Jews who marry West Bank Palestinians.
Following protracted communication from CAMERA Arabic, and in the wake of important steps to address anti-Jewish and anti-Israel bias at the network, Deutsche Welle completely removes a backgrounder about Jerusalem rife with errors.
Amnesty International has recently made headlines for its anti-Israel report. But as CAMERA tells the Jerusalem Post its not the first time that the NGO's shoddy and biased reporting has had destructive results.
Saudi diplomat Dr. Saud Kateb posits that BBC Arabic and other Arabic-language subsidiaries of Western media outlets compromise credibility by hosting speakers with agendas.
Beinart exposes complete disdain for and ignorance of not only history, but of the very legal concepts he seeks to rely on. He also displays his own inconsistent concern for respect of international law.
When Israel’s extremist critics start arguing by analogy, you can be pretty sure it’s because they don’t have any facts, evidence or logic to support their position. Their use of the Ukrainian crisis to castigate Israel is a case in point.
In an apparent attempt at splashing some of Putin's unpopularity onto Israel, NPR's Daniel Estrin tells readers that Putin is a "beloved" ally to Israel. He should know better.
There’s something particularly ugly about the accusation that the Jewish State tests technology on Palestinians to make a profit. Part of it is that the suggestion flirts with multiple antisemitic tropes: that Jews are only interested in money, or that the Jews are always engaging in grand conspiracies to manipulate the goyim for their own insidious designs.
Lacking factual and legal support for its claims, Amnesty resorts to repeating emotionally charged, but substantively empty, language and claims that – rather than educate students of the course – work only to demonize Israelis and delegitimize the Jewish State.
As CAMERA tells the National Review, there are logical inconsistencies in thinking that you can enact sanctions on Russia and simultaneously release sanctions on Iran. The two countries and China form part of an anti-American axis in the Middle East, and press and policymakers should take note.
As CAMERA tells the New York Sun, Ambassador David Friedman's recently released book, "Sledgehammer," offers lessons for press and policymakers. It also highlights stale thinking and instances of antisemitism at Foggy Bottom.
The latest New York Times hagiography of an anti-Israel activist has dropped. Yet another story taking aim at Israel. Yet more distortions meant to misinform.
The extent of Israel’s support for the Ukraine and condemnation of Russia is a source of controversy and debate, both within and outside the country, but only someone bent on demonizing the Jewish state would paint it as a simple matter of Israel's inferior “morality.”
In his recent book, retired professor David M. Crump argues explicitly that political Zionism is the modern-day equivalent of Nazism. “American Evangelism,” Crump writes, “is helping to finance political Zionism’s flagrant imitation of Nazi Germany.”
The history of Palestinian governance is very brief, dating back only to the 1990s. It takes a certain level of journalistic incompetence, therefore, to repeatedly misreport this particularly short chapter of history.
AFP points an accusing finger at Israel for not handing over disputed antiquities to the Palestinian Authority while completely ignoring the relevant Oslo Accords.
The Ramadan jihad of 2021 was a violent campaign that was planned well before Ramadan and evolved into a full Hamas war with Israel that extended beyond the period of Ramadan. That war, in turn, became a tool to demonize Israel in the latest round of a hostile propaganda campaign whose goal is the delegitimization and eradication of the Jewish State.
A new Netflix film paints British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain in a more favorable light than is warranted. But as CAMERA tells the National Interest, the revisionist take is unwarranted. In fact, the press and policymakers who appeased Hitler should have known better.
A headline in Haaretz's English edition misquotes Haim Rubovitch and the accompanying article mangles a Moshe Yaalon quote with a long history of rampant misreporting followed by notable corrections.
Reuters' failure to correct its own mistaken footage calls into question the competency of its editorial unit dedicated to fact-checking visual material and social media claims.
Iran's drone capabilities are expanding. And, as CAMERA tells the Washington Examiner, press and policymakers are well advised to take note. The Islamic Republic is the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism, and its arsenal of drones threatens the U.S. and its allies.
Israel is right to snub the U.N. COI, and the U.S. – as well as all fair-minded democracies – need to step up and put an end to this blatant antisemitism coming from the U.N. It's deeply concerning that they would allow their U.N. funding to be used for an inherently anti-Semitic initiative.
AFP falsely reports that Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Gilad Erdan failed to respond to the Palestinian representative's vilification of Israel as an "apartheid" state. In fact, Erdan directly refuted Riyad Mansour's assault.
As 2021 came to a close, two of the most influential news organizations in the English-speaking world, the New York Times and the BBC, slipped, flipped, and fell flat on their faces in their coverage of Jews, revealing how bad habits in media coverage of antisemitism, and the journalistic impulse to make news fit a pre-determined narrative, can so often lead to the defamation of Jews.
"[W]e are not pursuing the individuals' names." The New York Times refuses to supply details for Palestinians it reported were killed last year in settler violence. There's nothing classified about any of information, so what exactly is the paper hiding?
CAMERA Arabic exposes Farah Maraqa's repeated glorification of the murder of Israeli civilians, belying howls from apologists for antisemitism that seven DW employees were dismissed for "criticism of Israel."
CAMERA Arabic prompts correction of an Alhurra report which repeatedly referred to Israelis in the Golan Heights as "settlers," contradicting U.S. foreign policy.
To Whom Was The Promised Land Promised?
By Abraham A. Sion
Mazo Publishers, 2020
The book is also an important read for anyone truly interested in understanding the conflict, including how the commitment to create a Jewish state came about, how the anticipated borders of such a prospective state evolved over the years, and what the respective rights were for Mandate Palestine’s Jews and Arabs under international law.

The book is also an important read for anyone truly interested in understanding the conflict, including how the commitment to create a Jewish state came about, how the anticipated borders of such a prospective state evolved over the years, and what the respective rights were for Mandate Palestine’s Jews and Arabs under international law.
In Joseph Krauss' fictitious narrative, Ramy Shaath represents a new generation which has pioneered the novel rejection of the two-state solution, bucking the old leadership's supposed acceptance of the Jewish state of Israel alongside a Palestinian state.
Don't be fooled by AFP's qualified reference to unsubstantiated Israeli claims of unspecified "terror." This week's captions cover up for Yehuda Dimantmen's suspected murderer just as much as 2019 AFP captions covered up for the murderer of Rabbi Eitam and Naama Henkin.
CAMERA has begun documenting the range of falsehoods in Amnesty’s report elsewhere. This piece, by contrast, will focus on one of Amnesty’s lies, diving downward from there to untangle part of web of deceit underpinning the Big Lie.
A recent Washington Post report on Amnesty's anti-Israel report reads more like a press release by the NGO than an actual news article.
While conflicting sources is a common phenomenon in journalism, it's not often that a journalist directly contradicts his own sources, passing them off as substantiation when they are just the opposite.
AFP's headline ignores that the three slain Palestinians were card-carrying members of a designated terror organization, and its many captions cast information about their terror activity as an Israeli claim though the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade has openly claimed them.
Massachusetts bill to fund an Ethnic Studies curriculum raises concern about the potential spread of anti-Israel and anti-Jewish content in our schools.
Former Iranian diplomat Mohammad Jaffar Mahallati is not playing it straight with Oberlin University where he works as a professor.
Amnesty International’s recent scandalous report accusing Israel of “apartheid,” as well as a similar report from Human Rights Watch a year ago, are unsurprisingly overflowing with falsehoods and bigotry. Many outstanding analysts have already thoroughly debunked each of these reports. What also must be addressed, however, is the surrounding context of this slander. Why are they being released now? What purpose are they supposed to serve?
Amnesty is counting on lazy journalists and politicians to pick up the report and wave it around, picking out a random quote a staffer found that suggests Israel is a racist endeavor. They also know too few journalists these days are willing and able to perform serious journalism and ask the tough questions...
It's not only BDS which gets The New York Times makeover. The "Paper of Record" equitably extends this courtesy both to relatively unknown individuals who take umbrage with Israel's right to exist and to the U.N., with its notorious anti-Israel animus.
Amnesty International has accused Israel of “apartheid.“ But as CAMERA tells the Washington Examiner, the NGO is guilty of a libel. And its report is loaded with misrepresentations, omissions, and lies.
Multiple factual errors in her first significant New York Times assignment — the death of Palestinian-American Omar Assad — signal a bumpy start for Raja Abdulrahim, whose early career was boosted by CAIR awards after she published a letter denying that Hamas and Hezbollah are terror organizations.
Who is behind the widespread, disingenuous propaganda campaign to delegitimize the Jewish State?
The World Council of Churches called on the Palestinian Authority to rein in violence against Christians in the West Bank. In doing so, it cited a well-known Zionist website, IsraellyCool, as one of its sources of information. This is frankly astounding.
When Independent Catholic News published, nearly verbatim, a press statement from Churches for Middle East Peace about a brutal attack at a farm in the West Bank, it omitted a crucial sentence that revealed the attack was likely perpetrated by Arabs living nearby. In light of the omission and other articles published by ICN about the farm where the attack took place, readers might conclude the attack was perpetrated by Jews living nearby.
Haaretz is the second media outlet to correct in recent days after publishing the unfounded claim that elderly Palestinian-American Omar As'ad died while in Israeli military custody. In fact, the timing of his death is unclear, with no evidence that he died while in IDF custody.
Times of Israel clarifies multiple reports which had stated as fact that Palestinians of Khan Al-Ahmar have lived there since the 1950s. In fact, aerial photographs reveal that the site was desolate in those times, with settlement beginning in the 1980s and growing in earnest within the last 15 years.
A recent Washington Post op-ed is distinguished by its repeat omissions and distortions. All of which, CAMERA notes, have one thing in common: the defamation of the Jewish state.
Amnesty International has a long history of leveling maliciously false charges against Israel, and its leader Agnès Callamard had to apologize after her bizarre anti-Israel tweets were publicized. So it’s only fitting that in its latest report, alleging Israel is an apartheid and illegitimate state, the very first line is a blatant and malicious lie, a quotation from Benjamin Netanyahu mangled so that it seems to support Amnesty's false charges. And it's downhill from there.
In a video published in June, 2021, J. Herbert Nelson, II, the highest ranking elected official in the Presbyterian Church USA declared that his fellow Christians need to start looking at Jewish individuals in the United States who are supporting "evil" Israeli policies, which he characterized as “20th century slavery” and “some of the worst atrocities the world has ever seen.”
With "Generation Gaza: The Young Have Pride Despite Privations," Janine di Giovanni proves that neither age nor time spent in the field dictates journalistic mastery. Antipathy can be a much more compelling influence.
In 2008, then-German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that Germany "has a special historical responsibility for Israel’s security." She didn’t always live up to her words. But, as CAMERA tells the Washington Examiner, her successor must.
The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has had several employees and lay leaders convicted and/or deported on terrorism related charges. Several of its leaders have a long history of antisemitic statements. But don't count on the Washington Post, which portrays the group as a "civil rights" organization, to tell you any of that.
Times of Israel commendably corrected after inaccurately stating that the Congregration Beth Israel hostages were "freed." While one of the hostages was in fact freed, the other three escaped.
CAMERA prompts correction of an Associated Press article which erroneously placed the former American consulate in the eastern part of Jerusalem. The Palestinian Affairs Unit of the U.S. consulate in Jerusalem was located on Agron Street, in the western part of the city.
"A Shepherd's Resistance" by MSNBC's Ali Velshi is a grotesque propaganda roadshow which abandons any vestige of professional, objective journalism.
The Washington Post's coverage of Palestinians remains lopsided. The newspaper will expend considerable column space when Israel can potentially be blamed for the death of a Palestinian. Yet the systemic torture and repression that Palestinians endure at the hands of their own rulers is widely ignored.
Eviction of Palestinian residents of Sheikh Jarrah who failed to prove ownership or show payment of rent as protected tenants are the center of massive international attention. Despite the sober responsibility to adhere to high standards of professionalism, journalistic performance is at times as spotty as residents' ownership bids.
Haaretz's English edition today commendably amends two reports which whitewashed the crimes of Pakistani terrorist Aafia Siddiqui as "alleged," when in fact she was convicted of attempted murder in 2010.
Jan. 20, 2022 marks the 80th anniversary of the Wannsee Conference, in which fifteen men plotted the industrialization of the Holocaust over brandy and cigars. The conference was more than just a signpost of the Shoah, however. As CAMERA tells The National Interest, its lessons about the nature of antisemitism remain relevant today.
The publication Foreign Policy managed to end 2021 on a low note when it comes to accuracy and honest analysis. The magazine managed to pack an impressive amount of falsehoods and distortions in fewer than 600 words in its December 29, 2021 article “10 Conflicts to Watch in 2022.”
The Islamic Republic of Iran has called for the murder of America's former chief executive and chief diplomat, among other American citizens. Yet, many major media outlets couldn't be troubled to report Tehran's threats.
At the Philadelphia Inquirer, the forecast for Hamas is always sunny, all problems can be attributed to the Jewish state, and Palestinian leaders are completely without independent agency. Such paternalistic thinking is a staple at the Philadelphia newspaper, CAMERA tells JNS
AP advances the absurdly false narrative that the terror assault on Congregation Beth Israel was not connected to the Jewish community. Repeatedly reporting an FBI statement disassociating antisemitism as a motive, while ignoring statements from POTUS and other top officials citing antisemitism, the news agency also silences the ADL while giving ample voice to the antisemitism-peddling CAIR.
UPDATE: United Press International commendably corrects after erroneously reporting that 80-year-old Omar Abdalmajeed As'ad died while in Israeli military custody, a claim not found even in Palestinian coverage, and contradicted by the Israeli military.
Sinclair's foray outside local bounds and familiar playing fields into the distant Israeli-Palestinian arena spells coverage that is journalistically adrift.
To fully appreciate the scope of Iran’s malign influence, the press must cover the criminal network that is the IRGC. The Quds Force engages in both thievery and terror, stealing from the Iranian people and others alike. And, as CAMERA tells the Algemeiner, oil smuggling is particularly lucrative and under reported.
CAMERA UK keeps us up to date on the scandal surrounding following BBC's miscoverage of an antisemitic attack on young Jews celebrating Hanukkah in London.
After twice publishing a book review which erroneously referred to Israel's "government in Tel Aviv," The New York Times has corrected, first online and finally, yesterday, in print as well.
A news report in POLITICO wildly misleads about antisemitism and the Israel-Islamist conflict. As CAMERA tells JNS readers, POLITICO's dispatch reads more like a partisan press release than actual journalism.
Iran has been using its proxies to smuggle weapons into some of Israel's Arab communities. Tehran might be hoping to spark a civil war, but as CAMERA told the Washington Examiner, the Islamic Republic is likely to be disappointed.
Ory Slonim spent more than three decades working to secure the release of Israel's missing and dead. As CAMERA tells the Washington Examiner magazine, Slonim's memoir showcases the unique threats that Israel faces while highlighting the universality of missing a loved one.
The media engaged in a wholesale pitch to sell the Iran Deal in 2015. But as CAMERA notes in the Algemeiner, more than half a decade later many in the press still can't be troubled to accurately report the facts about Iran's nuclear weapons program or the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
With a categorical headline alleging a Swiss report determined that the Mossad bombed European firms in a bid to stymie Pakistan's weapons program, The Jerusalem Post "mistranslated" its own careful English reporting on the Swiss investigation's unproven suspicions.
When it comes to Israel, the Washington Post's opinion page is often an echo chamber, breathlessly repeating the same views. The newspaper even ran two op-eds by the same author in the space of seven days, both implicitly arguing the same thing: Jewish homes in Judea are responsible for the lack of peace.
A cadre of Evangelical scholars portray the Jewish quest for survival and well-being as more worthy of contempt than efforts to kill and terrorize Jews in their homeland.
Silencing the voice of Palestinian social media posts promoting murder, AFP's article suffers from an extreme lack of transparency, giving new meaning to meta reporting.
CBS and AFP ring in the New Year with old bad habits: deleting the Palestinian rocket attacks which precipitated today's Israeli strike in the Gaza Strip and omitting that Israel targeted Hamas.
As we move into a new year, it’s worth recalling the intense global focus on Israel during the past twelve months and CAMERA’s interventions to promote fair and factual treatment of the Jewish state.
Associated Press' imperfect headline is "Israel strikes Gaza after gunfire wounds civilian near fence." The Los Angeles Times further degrades it.
International media outlets citing Israel's 1967 capture of the Golan Heights from Syria fail to inform why. The truncated history lessons ignore Syria's 19-year exploitation of the strategic territory to launch attacks on Israeli civilians below.
Since his passing, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, renowned for his fight against South African's apartheid and racism, has been widely eulogized for his accomplishments. Less mentioned was his call for a global boycott of the Jewish state. Such calls, even under the guise of human rights, hide an underlying anti-Semitism. In order to weigh both sides of the debate about anti-Jewish boycott and understand why so many seek to combat it, one must be familiar with the boycott’s history.
AP's egregiously whitewashes the Abu Nidal terrorists who in 1985 carried out simultaneous deadly attacks against crowds of passengers at the El Al counters in the Rome and Vienna airports as "guerrillas."
Haaretz's English edition commendably amends a report which stated as fact an unverified claim by Christian leaders alleging rising Israeli violence against clergy.
A UN press release manipulates secretive and unverifiable UN data, prompting baseless media reports about Palestinians killed in settler violence.
CAMERA prompts corrections at US News & World Report, Metro and Yahoo after the media outlets illustrate a story covering the burial of terror victim Yehuda Dimentman with a three-year-old photo from a Palestinian funeral. Euronews has yet to correct.
The Columbus Dispatch covers up for CAIR while tarring the Investigative Project on Terrorism, which has documented the Islamist organization's bigotry and terror ties.
Everyone should read and internalize Herzberg and Kern’s report and use it to demand a more reasoned, objective, and accurate conversation on these issues.
The self-described “anti-Zionist not antisemitic” crowd is now openly viewing their enemy not as a perceived evil state in the Middle East, but as a distinct group here at home in America.
CAMERA prompts correction of The New York Times' egregious misreporting that all other Gulf States opposed the Emirates' normalization with Israel, or were reluctant to adopt the step.
CAMERA's video shows footage of Alareer's classroom incitement. As a result of our research and outreach to New York Times editors, the newspaper published an editors' note effectively retracting their piece on the bigoted bridge-builder.
Mohammed El-Kurd tweeted a video that portrayed a Palestinian attacker as a victim, and refused to update his followers even after the full facts were presented to him.
A recent Washington Post headline gave the benefit of the doubt to a terrorist who was caught on film stabbing a Haredi man in Jerusalem. The newspaper's headline tells us much about how the media is quick to blame Jews who defend themselves, while simultaneously minimizing anti-Jewish violence.
As the generation of survivors and first-hand witnesses to the Holocaust pass on, the void is being filled by neo-Nazis and Holocaust deniers who peddle their anti-Semitic lies through mainstream online book vendors, like Barnes & Noble.
Instead of centering the actual story – a stabbing attack – the headline centers the attacker, framing her as a victim for facing “eviction” and being “held.” No evidence is provided that the property dispute actually motivated the attack. The article's lede about "long-running tensions in the neighborhood" similarly turns the story into the justification of a violent attack by a Palestinian teen girl on a Jewish mother in front of her young children.
CAMERA prompts corrections of multiple AP photo captions which failed to make clear that Muhammad Salameh, shot dead by Israeli policemen Saturday, had just stabbed an Israeli civilian.
A recent Washington Times report highlights the growing antisemitism of the far left. The newspaper should be commended for covering a topic that many outlets fail to address. However, the report omitted key details about institutions and individuals who are promoting hatred of Jews and the Jewish state.
In an article about Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett (above), Christian Century misleads its readers about violence against Palestinians in the West Bank, falsely declaring that Israeli officials have not responded publicly to these attacks. The same article omits numerous attacks on Israelis, falsely declaring that Israeli attacks on Palestinians are "unprovoked." Why is the magazine omitting this context from its reportage on conflict in the Holy Land?
Miss Universe Organization (MOU), the organization which runs Miss Universe, has confirmed that Miss Greece imposter Rafaela Plastira never held the title and was never supposed to join the pageant in Israel.
The event instead turned into an exposé of the dangerous and violent bigotry of anti-Israel extremists on campuses. Featuring university professors, students, and alumni – and even representatives of terrorist-linked groups – the virtual event illustrated a growing trend of academics attempting to normalize antisemitism and even terrorism.
POLITICO's latest report on Israel is replete with misleading omissions and distortions. Reporter Nahal Toosi fails to disclose the documented links between several NGOs and terrorist groups. Worse still, she treats them as credible sources.
The Washington Post takes a road trip to try and figure out why there isn't a Palestinian state. Yet, as CAMERA tells JNS, in more than 4,000 words and 40 photographs, three Post reporters were unable to note the obvious reason: Palestinian rejectionism.
The future of the Palestinian Authority is bleak. The PA is led by an unpopular octogenarian, Mahmoud Abbas, who is currently in the sixteenth year of a four year term. Yet, violence has engulfed areas under the PA's control and ominously residents of Hebron have called for the King of Jordan, not Abbas, to end it.
The Islamic Republic of Iran has ramped up its terrorist attacks, using proxies to attack American soldiers in Syria, to target Israeli businessmen in Africa and to obstruct shipping lanes and global commerce. Yet, as CAMERA noted in the Washington Examiner, policymakers and the press have been slow to catch up.
In the eyes of The Los Angeles Times, Israeli plans to advance plans to build Jewish homes in Jerusalem are an "obstacle to peace" of the first order, demanding a page-one, 1,000 word story. The actual murder of an Israeli citizen and the arrest of dozens of terrorists with plans and means to inflict mass casualties is not a story at all.
Even in a week of difficult events underscoring that Palestinians are more than just victims, AP's "contextualized truth" reporting leaves no room for Palestinian culpability.
CAMERA prompts correction of a New York Times story referring to the Western Wall as "the last remaining part of an ancient Jewish temple that was destroyed in antiquity." The wall was a retaining wall of the Temple Mount, not part of the Temple itself, and is one of many surviving remains of the complex.
It is no wonder the New York Times' recent Op-Doc (op-ed documentary film) about Israel was a biased Breaking the Silence film that demonizes and delegitimizes Israel's military and Hebron’s Jewish residents. After all, the film represents the current mindset at a newspaper committed to villifying the Jewish state, its leaders and institutions.
The New York Times tells readers that Refaat Alareer, a professor who who incessantly dehumanizes "Zios" on Twitter, is a different man in the classroom, teaching students to appreciate Israeli poetry and, through, that, to humanize Israelis. This, though, is pure fiction. (Updated with information on newspaper's Editors' Note)
While both AP and Reuters carried headlines and first paragraphs identifying the assailant in today's fatal shooting attack in Jerusalem as Palestinian, AFP had concealed that basic information.
The notion that former Iranian diplomat Mohammad Jafar Mahallati remained ignorant of mass killings that took place in 1988 while at the UN is simply untenable in light of the evidence.
What do you do when you’re a journalist or the United Nations and you want to talk about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but the thought of giving representative Israelis a voice makes you gag? Simple: find a fringe token Israeli or, if you’re feeling extra bold, just invent an “Israeli” and speak for him!
AFP's article on the South African decision to sever ties with Miss South Africa in light of her refusal to cave to demands that she cancel her appearance in Israel reads like a BDS press release, covering up the anti-Israel movement's intimidation and harassment tactics.
Singer John Legend seems to have joined the ranks of pop-culture celebrities with little or no expertise in the Middle East publicly airing inaccurate views on the subject.
The international media's tendency to see Israel through the narrow lens of its presence in the disputed West Bank leads to bizarre outcomes at times. Thus, AFP falsely reports that "many" Ethiopian Israelis live in the disputed territory, when in fact the real figure is less than 2 percent.
The Israeli government's recent decision to designate six NGOs for their terrorist ties has sparked condemnations from press and policymakers. But as CAMERA tells the Washington Examiner, the evidence of these links has long been in the public domain.
Less than one year after his suspension following the production of an AJ+ video promoting Holocaust denial, Amer al-Sayed Omar returned to the network. If the promised mandatory bias training ever happened, there's no evidence that it left a mark on Omar and colleague Muna Hawwa.
The New Zealand Film Festival (NZFF) is currently showing the dishonest film, "'Til Kingdom Come" produced by filmmakers Maya Zinshtein and Abraham (Abie) Troen. CAMERA has sent a letter NZFF asking that it warn its viewers about the problems with this film, which was marred by two doctored quotes and numerous other problems when it was first shown to viewers in late 2020.
This isn’t just a campaign to turn the JNF or Israel into pariahs. They also aim to turn American Jewry — the overwhelming majority of whom are proud Zionists — into pariahs.
The contrast between the music magazine's reporting on pro- and anti-boycott letters demonstrates once again that Rolling Stone is only interested in giving its readers one perspective on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
A Deutsche Welle Arabic headline falsely alleges that Israel approved construction of "new settlements." But as the media outlet's English headline reports, the permits are for new homes in established settlements.
Times of Israel had initially omitted that Salah Hammouri of Addameer, one of the Palestinian NGOs flagged by Israel as a terror group, had been convicted of plotting to assassinate former Chief Rabbi Ovadia Yosef.
Elisha Wiesel, son of Holocaust survivor and Nobel Laureate, Elie Wiesel had a powerful message for students at Boston University on November 8, 2021. "My father believed in the power of students, especially at this university. You all have choices to make. I know my father's legacy and I am doing my best to live it. I know you will too," he said.
An Oct. 28, 2021 Washington Post report noted recent opposition by the Biden administration to proposed Israeli "settlements." Yet, as CAMERA noted in a JNS Op-Ed: Palestinian Arab leaders consider all of Israel to be a "settlement."
At Reuters and AP, the Sheikh Jarrah players fill clearly delineated roles: The Palestinian families stand in a united front against Israel's usurping settlers. Internal Palestinian discord clashes with that tidy narrative and is erased from the selective frame.
The Washington Post and Foreign Policy Magazine are providing cover for non-profit organizations that have been linked to terrorist groups. Both outlets studiously avoided providing readers with publicly available information highlighting the ties between recently designated NGOs and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a terrorist organization that beheads Jewish infants.
Elisha Wiesel, son of Auschwitz survivor and Nobel Laureate Eli Wiesel, will be speaking at a memorial lecture offered in his father’s name at Boston University on Monday Nov. 8, 2021. Elisha Wiesel’s lecture comes at a particularly dramatic time. Last week, BU hosted Rev. William Barber II, well known for his anti-Israel polemics, as an Elie Wiesel Memorial speaker
After CAMERA posts a critique and introduces the hashtag #SadSadIsrael, thousands of smiling Israelis ridicule a recent New York Times story about "what it means to be Israeli."
It appears Rev. Dr. Barber, II has concluded that Israel-bashing and Jew-baiting are losing strategies when it comes to garnering influence and prestige in American society. It might even be reasonable to hope that Barber has learned the lessons of the Women’s March in 2018 and the Black Lives Matter Movement which suffered irreparable damage to their credibility by becoming vehicles for Israel-bashing and Jew-baiting in American society.
Target's removal of two dozen Holocaust-denial and anti-Semitic conspiracy books marketed on its website, in the wake of CAMERA's exposé is commendable, as its apology for its “error in having these books available on Target.com,” but it is only once chapter of a disturbing story whose conclusion is not yet obvious.
The Board of Trustees at Oberlin must be very proud — because the college has now given cover to a former Iranian diplomat who called for Israel’s destruction at the UN, and according to Amnesty International, worked to obscure a round of mass murders perpetrated in 1988. These days, the professor in question — Mohammad Jafar Mahallati — is preaching a message of “friendship” to his students at Oberlin, as if he never uttered the hateful things he said about Israel, or covered up mass murder.
The New York Times promises to show readers what it means to be Israeli. Instead, it curates, conceals, and contrives an ugly land of darkness.
Sometimes, all it takes is a catchy phrase to perfectly capture the moral absurdity or obscenity of a moment — and help people understand the danger. The titles of two recent books — “People Love Dead Jews” by Dara Horn and “Jews Don’t Count” by David Baddiel — seem to fit the bill. I propose a slight revision of these two sayings. I make this proposal after analyzing a six-part CNN series purportedly covering the history of Jerusalem, entitled “Jerusalem: City of Faith and Fury.” My new phrase: “CNN loves when dead Jews don’t count.”
A recent Religion News Service (RNS) dispatch noted criticism, including from several members of the U.S. Congress from New York, of Sunrise D.C.'s decision to exclude Jewish groups. Yet RNS's wording implied that all of the congressional critics were Jewish. Following contact from CAMERA, RNS promptly corrected.
CAMERA prompts corrections after Deutsche Welle misreported that Israel has full administrative control of the West Bank and that Israeli settlements are illegal under international law.
AFP corrects after erroneously reporting that Gaza "is fenced in on three sides by Israel." In fact, Egypt sits on one of the three land borders.
The AP once again tramples over its lofty mission of providing "world-class journalism" in pursuit of “advancing the power of facts.” Instead of reporting any of the open source material tying the newly blacklisted Palestinian organizations to PFLP, Joseph Krauss pushes partisanship.
Rev. Dr. William Barber II, the former president of the North Carolina Chapter of the NAACP who regularly refers to Jesus as “a brown-skinned Palestinian Jew” and who in 2018 falsely accused Israel of “targeting” Palestinian children “simply because they want freedom,” is scheduled to give the Elie Wiesel Memorial Lecture at Boston University’s Elie Wiesel Center for Jewish Studies on Wednesday, Oct. 27, 2021.
Demonstrating total abandonment of the journalistic imperative mandating strict adherence to factual accuracy, The New York Times is refusing to correct a blatant error: the misidentification of Rameh, an Arab town in northern Israel, as "Palestinian."
CAMERA prompts correction of a Reuters article which erroneously reported that the bilateral peace accords require Israel to grant West Bank or Gaza residency status to 4,000 spouses of Palestinians. In fact, the agreements do not specify any figures.
Increasing assaults on Holocaust memory and the concomitant rise in anti-Semitism is not limited to Europe, but is being mainstreamed in the U.S., including by one of America’s largest retail corporations that is part of the S&P 500 index -- Target. Whether through choice, negligence or ignorance, Target has allowed its online bookselling platform to become a repository of Holocaust denial and anti-Semitism by an international coterie of Holocaust deniers.
One of the lessons in the children’s story “Uncle Meena,” taught in classrooms across the U.S., is about coexistence — namely, that for American Jews, it should be conditional.
The Washington Post's World Views column has found a problem with the Abraham Accords, the normalization agreements between Israel and several Muslim majority nations. The agreements, Post World Views columnist Ishaan Tharoor says, make Palestinian statehood less likely. Yet, the blame belongs with Palestinian leadership alone.
CAMERA prompts improved coverage after Haaretz's article on Midhat Saleh, reportedly killed by Israeli gunfire, initially omitted the former Syrian MP's involvement in anti-Israel attacks and his alleged ties to Iran's Revolutionary Guards. AP, in contrast, has yet to amend.
The magazine’s one-sided reporting on author Sally Rooney’s decision to decline translation of her most recent work by an Israeli publishing house fails to quote any opponents of the antisemitic BDS movement.
U.S. Secretary of State Blinken's statement about "other options" with respect to Iran was big news. Media outlets covering the remarks all highlighted the scoop, with the glaring exception of Haaretz.
Contradicting its own previous coverage as well as the actual geography, Haaretz erroneously reports that construction in the E-1 area, between Jerusalem and Ma'aleh Adumim to the east, would divide the West Bank in two.
People are overdosing and defecating in the city’s downtown. The last thing the city’s residents need is to see Burlington City Hall handed over to a constituency that seeks to legitimize rocket attacks on Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, while Burlington goes down the tubes.
Haaretz amends a heading which irrelevantly reported that a suspected arsonist had been a resident of a West Bank facility while simultaneously omitting the salient fact that the mentally ill woman had just escaped from a mental institution
The AP’s report on the discovery of a First Temple era toilet omits Jewish references, while a NY Times Rosh Hashanah recipe evokes ’Canaanites,’ not Israelites.
CAMERA prompts correction of a Reuters video which erroneously had placed the former U.S. consulate in eastern Jerusalem. Palestinian Affairs Unit had been located on Agron Street, in the western part of the city.
Reuters' cited a lone relative who claimed Yousef Sobh was shot dead on his way to school and censored all of the Palestinian accounts consistent with the IDF's information that he fired on troops.
Despite introducing limited cosmetic improvements to an article about the Fursan Al-Aqsa video game, The Jerusalem Post still egregiously ignores critics who slam the game for its glorification of terror against Jews.
CAMERA prompts corrections after Haaretz's English edition erroneously placed the former U.S. Consulate serving Palestinian in eastern Jerusalem. In fact, the Agron building is located in the western part of the capital.
When it comes to reporting on the Middle East, Foreign Policy magazine has shown a carelessness with facts, preferring anti-Israel narratives instead. Several recent report, including one on Christians in Hamas-ruled Gaza, are littered with omissions.
The Hollywood Reporter falsifies that the film "Advocate" follows Leah Tsemel as she defends "political prisoners." In fact, the documentary covers Ahmed Manasrah, convicted for two counts of attempted murder, and Israa Jabris, who detonated explosives as police approached.
Bloomberg reverses cause and effect by telling readers that Hamas suicide bombings and rocket attacks were a response to Israel's attempts to stop Hamas suicide bombings and rocket attacks.
In the span of one week, the Washington Post ran two opinion pieces calling out antisemitism in the halls of Congress and the campuses of our nation's universities.It is past time for major U.S. newspapers to devote column space to the ominous rise of antisemitism. The Post's decision to highlight antisemitism is welcome, particularly, as CAMERA notes, due to the paper's own, and often troubling, history.
Kai Bird’s very positive new biography of Jimmy Carter unfortunately perpetuates a blatant lie the former president has been telling for more than 40 years – that Israeli PM Menachem Begin broke his Camp David promise of an open-ended settlement freeze. In fact Begin had promised, and delivered, a three month freeze, and Carter knows this.
On Sept. 13, 2021, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett met with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi in Sharm El-Sheikh in the Sinai Peninsula. The event was the first public invitation for an Israeli premier to meet on Egyptian soil in a decade, but many in the media failed to place it in its proper historical context.
A recent POLITICO “exclusive” purported to provide the details of Rep. Andy Levin's recently introduced “Two-State Solution” Act. But the report, like the legislation itself, omitted crucial details about the Arab-Israeli conflict, international law and Jewish history.
When Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez withdrew her vote against helping Israel replenish its anti-missile defense system, the New York Times framed the story as a clash between principles and powerful "rabbis."
There is, of course, no inherent problem in including the commentary of partisans or activists. They can provide viewers with context, giving them competing viewpoints on contentious issues. However, CNN’s failure to properly identify activists or to provide counterbalancing voices goes well beyond the line of objective storytelling.
Addressing the horror of attacks like those perpetrated in London on August 18 — and their roots in the Islamic tradition — is not an act of bigotry. Quite the opposite.
The 2001 Durban Conference condemned Israel as an apartheid state and was the match that lit the fire of renewed global anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism. On Durban’s 20th anniversary, leaders in the fight against bigotry including former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former Attorney General Michael Mukasey, and Academy Award winning actor and humanitarian Jon Voight, joined in opposing Durban at the conference "Fight Racism, not Jews," See the full video here.
By rewriting history and erasing inconvenient events, NPR tells a tall tale of Palestinian leaders behaving responsibly after September 11, and of Israel being responsible for Palestinian suicide bombing attacks on Israeli civilians
In the latest blow to The Times' expired identity, the former Paper of Record refuses to set the facts straight on Jewish sovereignty in ancient Israel. The longest period of Jewish rule extended beyond three centuries, not 80 years.
In an important essay, CAMERA's Shillman research fellow Dexter Van Zile writes that a mainline Protestant peacemaking journey “that began, in part, with an innocent ideological impulse to stand with the weak and powerless—and a not so innocent desire to use Israel as a proxy for the Christian right—brought mainline churches to a place where Israel, and Jews, could be vilified in good conscience, in the pursuit of peace and justice in the name of God."
The California Board of Parole has voted to grant release to Sirhan Sirhan, the assassin of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. But a POLITICO report omitted Sirhan's motivation: Kennedy's support for Israel.
Falsely alleging that "hardline groups" of Jews "believe" the Temples stood on the Temple Mount, France 24 Arabic commentator Khaled al-Gharabli ignores the archeological consensus and fabricates Israeli digging threatening the site.
Far from "distinct," the Beita riots, marked by the use of explosives and burning tires, closely mirror Gaza's "night confusion" units which have been operating intermittently for three years in an effort to make life unbearable for Israelis living nearby.
CNN has a problem with Jerusalem’s history. The network apparently views the utter destruction of the city, including the Second Temple – a historic event of great significance to all three Abrahamic religions – as just not as important to the story of Jerusalem as…Cleopatra.
VOA commendably amends after comparing the percentage of Israeli Jews who are vaccinated versus the percentage of Israeli Arabs who are not, a formulation which falsely suggests the figure for Arabs is much lower than it actually is.
This week, both Hamas in Gaza and Fatah's Tanzim in the West Bank benefit from what is apparently AFP's equal opportunity tilt in the service of terror groups.
An email sent by J Street and signed by its president, Jeremy Ben-Ami falsely charged Israel with blocking food and medicine to the Gaza Strips. If other critics of Israel can get that right, why can't J Street?
On Monday, Aug. 30, 2021, Rick Wiles declared that Israel was responsible for the death of Christians at the hands of ISIS in Afghanistan and were trying to start a world war. Rhetoric like this has mobilized violence against Jews for more than 2,000 years, culminating in a mass killing of Jews in Europe during the Holocaust.
The Washington Post's Dana Milbank rightfully called out Rep. Rashida Tlaib for her most recent antisemitic comments. Yet, bizarrely the Post tried to blame former President Donald Trump for Tlaib's behavior, effectively depriving her of independent agency. But if Milbank is looking to affix blame for rising antisemitism, he can start with his own employer.
The Taliban want to assuage Western concerns and secure aid, support and even diplomatic recognition. The Taliban, like other Islamist terrorist groups, such as Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, view the media as a means to their own diabolical ends. But, as CAMERA tells the Washington Post, journalists and media consumers alike shouldn't let themselves be hoodwinked by Islamist terrorists.
CAMERA prompts correction after United Press International incorrectly reported that Israel has long opposed a two-state solution. Israel's long history of accepting deals that would have established a Palestinian state belie the erroneous assertion.
In addressing the Six-Day War, CNN accentuated even further its habit throughout the series of distorting events to portray Arabs as powerless victims. In some cases, this narrative is laid absurdly bare, such as when the narrator tells viewers “[t]he [Jordanian] shelling is meant to target Jews in West Jerusalem, but it’s the Palestinian Arabs living in the area that are left defenseless.” Yes – CNN suggested that when Arabs were trying to kill Jews, it was really Arabs who were the victims.
Nowhere is NPR's skewed reporting as obvious as in its coverage of Jerusalem. Misrepresentations about Israeli policy in Jerusalem were followed by a broadcast that bolstered the Hamas pretext for rocketing population centers inside Israel – namely, the “defense” of Jerusalem and Al Aqsa.
With its mendacious and one-sided activism, the United Church of Christ has been a negative force for peace in the Middle East and on Jewish life in the United States. With is ongoing polemics against Israel, the UCC has brought wood to the fire of antisemitism.
The death today of Osama Dueij, fatally wounded during violent clashes at the Israel-Gaza border, made big news. His status as a fighter belonging to Hamas' military wing, a designated terror group, made less news.
Terrorist groups and autocrats routinely use intimidation to influence press coverage to their advantage. As CAMERA noted in a recent Washington Examiner op-ed, the Taliban, for example, has a long history of threatening journalists. And, as a recent assault by Fatah against two Washington Post reporters illustrates, the practice extends from Kabul to Ramallah and beyond.
One hundred years ago this May, the ruling British authorities in Mandate Palestine appointed Amin al-Husseini to the position of Grand Mufti of Jerusalem. As CAMERA highlighted for Mosaic Magazine, the British had hoped to use Husseini for their own ends. Instead, the future Nazi collaborator used them. The full story of Husseini's rise to power can now be told.
Nearly 200 City University of New York faculty members have resigned, or plan to resign, from the university system’s faculty trade union in protest over two vitriolic anti-Israel statements endorsed by the union and an affiliated organization, which spread lies about Israel, endorse Palestinian "resistance," and endanger CUNY's mainstream Jewish community.
Sipa editors in New York and Los Angeles apply zero editing to material from contributors in the Hamas-run Gaza Strip, resulting in anti-Israel fabrications that incite and have no resemblance to professional journalism.
Sixty years ago, the founding father of Palestinian Arab nationalism, Amin al-Husseini, held a press conference in Beirut, denying any association with the recently captured top Nazi, Adolf Eichmann. Yet, as CAMERA noted in the Algemeiner, Husseini was lying. And the whole incident, including press coverage of Eichmann's capture by Israeli operatives, tell us much about antisemitism, both past and present.
“One of the lessons that we learn from studying Jewish history,” the historian Paul Johnson observed, “is that anti-Semitism corrupts the people and societies possessed by it.” As CAMERA highlighted in JNS, Lebanon offers a tragic case in point.
Beginning on July 18, CNN has been airing each Sunday a new, six-part series entitled “Jerusalem: City of Faith and Fury.” As of this writing, Parts 1-5 have been broadcast and have been seriously marred by factual inaccuracies and one-sided narratives omitting vital information. Many of the “experts” featured in the series have clear histories of anti-Israel activism and partisanship. A preliminary sample of how disconnected the CNN series is from reality and objectivity follows.
Correspondent Layla Odeh falsely charges that "settlers" entered the Al-Aqsa mosque, miscasts a peaceful Jewish visit to the Temple Mount as violent, and ignores the violent stone-throwing on the part of Muslims.
In 2014, Lebanon's Maronite Patriarch Bechara Boutros al-Rahi declared he would make common cause with Hezbollah to fight against Isis and spoke of Israel as an obstacle to peace and development in the Middle East. Seven years later, he has condemned Hezbollah for risking a war with Israel.
Maya Zinshtein and Abraham (Abie) haven’t said a word publicly about the well-documented problems with their film. They haven’t admitted to the allegations. They haven’t denied them. They haven’t even tried the old defense that the quotes were fake, but accurate. They’ve said nothing. Not one word. And the people in the documentary filmmaking community have let them get away with it. No one in this community has called them to task — at least not publicly.
Coverage of the Ben & Jerry’s compliance with the movement to boycott the Jewish state must provide news consumers full, accurate information on the bigoted goals and ideology of BDS, and the danger their activism often represents to the Jewish community.
Human Rights Watch repeatedly scoffs at IDF claims that there are Hamas tunnels under Gaza, saying that HRW’s investigators could find no trace of these supposed tunnels. However, Israeli journalist Gal Berger reports that the UN is worried about such tunnels undermining their school's foundations, but Hamas is preventing UN experts from checking. If Hamas won't let the UN check for tunnels, did they really let HRW check?
It’s time to convene a rabbinical court to render a judgement on the UCC’s decades-long war against the Jews and their state.
Following communication with CAMERA Arabic, CNN’s Arabic website corrected two reports that had charged Jewish visitors to the Temple Mount with "storming" the al-Aqsa Mosque.
The Philadelphia Inquirer, which has an estimated 193,000 daily subscribers, has frequently provided commentary and analysis that misleads about the Jewish state. A recent column manages to mislead about the BDS movement, Ben and Jerry's, Jewish rights in the Jewish people's ancestral homeland, and the long history, indeed the root causes, of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
CAMERA secured a correction from CNBC after Shepard Smith mistakenly claimed "UN Security Council has said the Israeli occupation is a ‘flagrant violation’ under international law."
Human Rights Watch has just published a report charging that Israeli strikes in Gaza during the May fighting included significant war crimes. Too bad that the first case it cites, a bombing in Beit Hanoun, was actually due to an errant Palestinian rocket.
The ABC has published an article about Human Rights Watch’s latest anti-Israel report that is even more biased than the HRW report itself.
Recalling The New York Times' "They Were Only Children" toxic libel, Associated Press' photo essay today all but ignores Hamas' responsibility for the trauma inflicts on Gaza's children. By citing "precision-guided Israeli bombs" and ignoring the Hamas targets, AP falsely defames Israel with committing a heinous war crime: targeting children with precision bombs.
Photographer Peter Van Agtmael minimizes the effect of the fighting in May on Israelis while portraying Palestinians exclusively as victims.
Hamas, the U.S.-designated terrorist group that rules the Gaza Strip, is making inroads in the West Bank. The genocidal terrorist organization is looking to supplant, Fatah, the movement that controls the U.S.-backed Palestinian Authority, and is gaining in popularity. Yet, as CAMERA noted in the Washington Examiner, too many press and policymakers are seemingly oblivious.
Amira Hass solely blames Israeli restrictions for a shortage of water pipes in the Gaza Strip, and falsely credits the Gaza authorities with "major efforts" to improve the infrastructure. She conveniently overlooks the well-reported fact that Hamas digs up vast quantities of water pipes and converts them into rockets.
In July so far, NPR aired at least three problematic reports, that shared a common thread – omitting context and hearing from anti-Israel activists to blame Israel for dispossessing and discriminating against Palestinians and stirring conflict. It was a throwback to the NPR of the past.
Agence France Presse captions misleadingly refer to Palestinian protesters' proximity to "the newly-established Israeli wildcat settler outpost of Eviatar," without giving any indication that the outpost was fully evacuated a week earlier.
By what rationale has the Jerusalem Post declined to correct the patently absurd claim that Israelis who haven't served in the army, including most haredim and Arabs, are not permitted to work?
CAMERA calls on senior executives of The Los Angeles Times to forthrightly repudiate the Open Letter signed by 500 media practitioners, including nine Times journalists, who advocate for partisan coverage of Israel and the Palestinians in total contravention of ethical journalism.
The Washington Post's World View column provides disproportionate, and often misleading, analysis on Israel, much of which castigates the Jewish state for supposedly repressing Palestinians. But when the Palestinian Authority imprisons, tortures, and murders its own people, including journalists, the Post's World Views columnist is silent.
CAMERA prompts improved AFP coverage of the family unification law, which prevents West Bank or Gaza Palestinians married to Israeli citizens from obtaining citizenship. AFP clarifies that the law applies to all Israeli citizens, not just Israeli Arabs. AP declined to clarify.
While the United Nations would consider annexation "inadmissible," and regards settlements as "illegal," none of the post-war resolutions found Israel's capture of the West Bank and subsequent occupation to be "illegal."
The Times' Nabih Bulos understates the permitted Gaza fishing zone and overstates the coastal territory's unemployment figure. CAMERA refuses to let the facts slip away.
Much of the coverage and commentary surrounding the fighting in May between Hamas and Israel has focused on numbers, especially the much larger number of Palestinians than Israelis killed. But many Hamas rockets fell short and exploded in Gaza, causing an estimated 36% of the Palestinian deaths in the fighting.
For years, readers have turned to the Jerusalem Post for context that’s often missing from one-sided, anti-Israel reports in the international media. But recent coverage of a demolition in Silwan consisted of a partisan report from Reuters.
Obituaries in Western news outlets noted that Ali Akbar Mohtashamipur was a founder of Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed, U.S.-designated terrorist group that rules Lebanon. But, as CAMERA wrote in The National Interest, Mohtashamipur was more than a founding father of one of the world’s largest terrorist organizations. He was, in fact, one of a handful of men who built the modern Middle East.
The Associated Press, a leading news agency whose stated mission is "advancing the power of facts" with "world-class journalism," takes a page out of the open letter signed this month by hundreds of journalists against ethical journalism.
Times of Israel commendably corrects the common misconception that while Jews can recover property they lost in the 1948 war, no comparable mechanism allows for Arabs to recover property lost in the same war.
No, those cross-border Hamas tunnels into Israel aren't for "smuggling." Sébastien Roblin, a reporter specializing in international affairs, security and military history, also significantly overstates the territory's unemployment rate.
CAMERA prompts correction of Times of Israel articles which stated as fact unverified Palestinian claims of ownership of land where the illegal outpost of Evyatar sits. The Civil Administration has yet to determine the land's ownership.
Columbia Journalism Review, the ostensible beacon of ethical journalism, has failed to condemn the frontal assault on journalism’s most basic values, writes CAMERA's Tamar Sternthal in The New York Daily News.
Ioan Sauca, the interim general secretary of the World Council of Churches announced the WCC has reshaped its operations in Jerusalem and will not be participating in the upcoming 20th anniversary memorial of the UN anti-racism conference that took place in Durban South Africa in 2001.
A June 13, 2021 Washington Post report claimed that there hasn't been a bus bombing by Palestinian terrorists in a decade. Yet, as CAMERA pointed out to Post staff, this isn't true. Following contact from CAMERA, the Post commendably corrected the report.
Does the New York Times think any violent attack on any Jew living anywhere in the Holy Land at any time in history counts as "resistance"?
The Boston Globe's Abdullah Fayyad misrepresents the facts of the Sheikh Jarrah property dispute to weave a false narrative of Israeli ethnic cleansing and apartheid.
Associated Press delivers a highly selective account of overnight violence in Sheikh Jarrah, omitting the Palestinian firebomb attacks against Jewish homes which apparently started the clash.
Multiple CNN items in recent days erroneously reported that the Geneva Convention obligates Israel to vaccinate West Bank and Gaza Strip Palestinians.
As CAMERA highlighted in a recent National Review Op-Ed: For the Palestinian leaders who choose to promote them, intifadas are often self-defeating. Going back to the first intifada in the 1930s, anti-Jewish violence and terror often upsets the Palestinian political landscape—often sweeping aside, or weakening, the very Palestinian leaders responsible for inciting them.
In the fight between Israel and Hamas the rockets and bombs may have stopped for now, but what hasn’t even paused are the efforts by human rights organizations and certain pundits, politicians and comedians to condemn Israel for allegedly using “disproportional force,” ethnically cleansing Palestinians from Jerusalem, and being an apartheid state. All the charges are recycled lies and propaganda.
The most outrageous falsehood in Dalia Hatuqa's error-rife article is: "Gaza was pulverized by an 11-day-long Israeli bombardment in May." In fact, at most 0.2 percent (450) out of the territory's more than 186,000 buildings were damaged or destroyed.
CAMERA has called on NPR to acknowledge Hamas’s arson attacks in the headline, to amend as passage suggesting uncertainty about the purpose of the Israeli counterstrikes, and to correct a straightforward chronological error that wrongly claims the arson attacks were a response to an earlier march.
Associated Press fails to make clear the fact that Israeli airstrikes against Hamas buildings in the Gaza Strip were in response to Palestinian arson balloon attacks which sparked some 20 fires southern Israel.
The Washington Post’s omissions are curiously one-sided. They favor antisemites in Congress, anti-Israel NGOs and multilateral bodies, as well as terrorist groups committed to the destruction of the world’s sole Jewish state.
France24 Arabic analyst Khaled Gharabli launches into an anti-Israel rant detached from reality, including a flat denial of the demonstrable fact that Hamas uses civilians as human shields.
Filmmakers Maya Zinshtein and Abraham (Abie) Troen did the the same thing to David Brog that they did to former U.S. President Donald Trump. They altered what he said in a manner that fundamentally changes the meaning of what he said at a 2018 meeting of Christians United for Israel.
When misfired Palestinian rockets killed Palestinians, the New York Times repeatedly told readers Israeli rockets were responsible. Editors refused to correct the errors.
CAMERA has prompted a correction to a USA Today report that inaccurately claimed that the U.S. has provided military aid to Israel since its founding.
Nabih Bulos remakes a terror organization calling for violence, ethnic cleansing, and Islamic supremacy into a civil rights movement pursuing the noble goals of recognition and equality.
The Los Angeles Times' page-one story, "In war-ravaged Gaza, it's no business, as usual," is not journalism as usual. The article disregards basic journalistic requirements including the right of reply to criticism and the responsibility to correct errors.
The Times' claim that Palestinian Tayseer Mleitat was killed by Israeli troops "at a protest" is a gross misrepresentation of information available in the paper's own archives: he was part of a crowd of hundreds which targeted soldiers with Molotov cocktails and rocks.
Rolling Stone, the partially Saudi-owned music magazine that has just announced a new business venture in China, has published no less than six articles and features that were factually inaccurate and/or one-sided and biased against Israel since the start of Operation Guardian of the Walls.
AFP has finally fired Palestinian reporter Nasser Abu Baker whose partisan activity in senior posts at the Palestinian Journalists' Syndicate embodies the Palestinian Authority ideal of "journalism in the service of the revolution," which inherently conflicts with the news agency's "rigorous neutrality."
