CAMERA prompts correction at Deutsche Welle after an Op-Ed incorrectly reported that 600,000 Jewish settlers reside in the Gaza Strip. In 2005, Israel withdrew all of its approximate 8,500 settlers from Gaza.
CAMERA Arabic prompts correction of a Deutsche Welle article which erroneously stated that Israel's Independence Day is celebrated on May 15. Since the holiday follows the Hebrew calendar, the Gregorian date changes from year to year.
Deutsche Welle's report on an Israeli airstrike which hit the Gaza offices of a Turkish news agency failed to note that the targets were Hamas offices housed in the same building. CAMERA called on the German outlet to include the information, and editors commendably did so.
In a gross violation of journalistic ethics and the network's own published guidelines against editorializing in news stories, Deutsche Welle Arabic television anchorwoman Dima Tarhini editorialized that Palestinian moves against Israel at the International Criminal Court is "a step we have been waiting for a long time."
Although Deutsche Welle corrected several errors after communication from CAMERA, the piece remains overwhelmingly one-sided and prejudicial against Israel's positions.
