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.
A March 30, 2020 Foreign Policy op-ed holds Israel responsible for the threat that the COVID-19 pandemic poses to Palestinians. In order to do so, the commentary omits crucial facts and context, while depriving Palestinian leaders of responsibility.
Foreign Policy magazine claims “one reason the Palestinians swiftly rejected the flawed U.S. peace plan was that it does nothing to address their claims for water rights.” But there's no evidence to suggest that this is the case, and plenty of evidence to suggest otherwise.
Iran has been threatening Americans, murdering soldiers and civilians and plotting terror against the U.S. for years. But as CAMERA noted in The Daily Wire, many news outlets have chosen to ignore or minimize the Islamic Republic's behavior and agenda.
