Misinformation about Israel has spread to many forms of media. Travel guides are not immune. CAMERA reviews various travel guides for accuracy and bias.
Lonely Planet's Guide to Israel and the Palestinian Territories caters to the rabidly anti-Israel activist, providing a skewed view of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and even offering up suggestions about anti-Israel activism.
Budget travelers frequently rely on the Lonely Planet series to guide them in thrifty and educated choices for journeys to exotic locales. Unfortunately, the series' Israel & The Palestinian Territories (3rd Edition) is anything but edifying. The volume is filled with half-truths and innuendo, and displays a generally disagreeable attitude toward Israel and its Jewish inhabitants.
