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.
The latest U.S. peace initiative for Israelis and Palestinians has received considerable coverage. But as CAMERA details in the Algemeiner, reporters have failed to note the long history of Palestinian rejectionism.
In several recent reports, Foreign Policy omits UNRWA’s history of promoting anti-Jewish violence and Palestinian rejectionism. Foreign Policy minimizes issues with the U.N. agency and unfairly stereotypes those seeking to reform aid to Palestinians.
In their recent reports, both Foreign Policy Magazine and The Washington Post omit UNRWA’s ties to terror groups and promotion of anti-Jewish violence. UNRWA, as CAMERA highlighted in a recent Op-Ed, has a long and sordid history—and the media should report it, not cover it up.
Media coverage of Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas' Feb. 20, 2018, U.N. speech was a master class in one-sided omissions and skewed stenography.
