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.
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 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.
A Jan. 25, 2021 report by Foreign Policy Magazine claims that the Palestinian Authority has “pledged to overhaul a controversial welfare policy for militants convicted of violence against Israelis.” This is a convoluted way of describing the PA's policy of financing terrorist attacks on Jews.
Writing in Foreign Policy magazine, British historian Avi Shlaim faults both Israel and the United States for the failure to achieve a Palestinian state. Shlaim asserts that U.S. must pressure the Jewish state in order to achieve peace. But, as CAMERA tells JNS readers, the historian's reading of history is both selective and disingenuous.
Foreign Policy gives a pass to to Salem Barahmeh of the Palestine Institute for Public Diplomacy to whitewash convicted Palestinian terrorists who carried out lethal attacks against Israelis as "political prisoners." Separately, the publication revises Barahmeh's unfounded reference to the displacement of "entire Palestinian communities," enabled by the Trump administration.
An Oct. 19, 2020 report by Foreign Policy magazine stands apart for its brazen adoption of an anti-Israel narrative. Key facts and relevant history are omitted, while the magazine chose to treat antisemites as reliable sources.
For weeks while communities in Israel burned, many major U.S. news outlets kept silent. As CAMERA tells JNS, Gaza-based terror groups have been launching incendiary devices into southern Israel, resulting in major damage. Yet, mainstream Western media has failed to provide meaningful coverage.
Foreign Policy published a piece by Palestinian activist Zena Agha titled “Israel Can’t Hide Evidence of Its Occupation Anymore.” The entire premise of the article — which accuses the United States of denying human rights activists access to satellite images they can use to document alleged Israeli misdeeds against the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza — is destroyed by information in the article itself.
Foreign Policy claims to “draw on the world’s leading journalists, thinkers, and professionals” in order to “analyze the most significant international trends and events of our times, without regard to ideology or political bias.” But when it comes to recent coverage of Israel that is up for debate.
