CAMERA prompts a forthright, thorough correction after Deutsche Welle erroneously reported that UN Resolution 194 "guaranteed" the Palestinian "right of return."

Israel's cabinet and Knesset have voted to support recent peace agreements with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. Only one political party opposed accepting the Accords: the Joint List.

CAMERA Sends an Open Letter to Inter-Varsity Press in the U.S. and UK

Books that IVP in the U.S. and the U.K. have published about the Holy Land have been marred by errors, omissions, and historical distortions that invariably portray Israel in an unfairly harsh light.
