In a span of twenty-four hours the Washington Post published two deeply misleading reports that were heavy on omissions and light on facts and context. The newspaper promoted questionable polls and an anti-Israel pundit to subtly push for the annihilation of the Jewish state.
Iranian regime operatives are, once again, claiming that a fatwa (religious decree) prohibits the regime from building nuclear weapons. And news media organizations are, once again, uncritically repeating this claim. But as CAMERA tells readers of The National Interest, this is a disinformation campaign
It seems that, just as the Washington Post puts an anti-Israel narrative before facts, Palestinian leadership puts politics before public health—the exact charge that reporters and comedians alike have laid at the Jewish state’s doorstep.
The Washington Post's editorial board has published another attack on Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu. But as CAMERA noted in JNS, the Post's real problem is how it views the Israel-US relationship.
Press and policymakers might obfuscate on the matter, but the facts are clear: the Houthis are a terrorist group. The Yemen-based organization receives arms and support from the world's foremost state sponsor of terrorism, Iran, and there is nothing ambiguous about their motto: "Death to America, Death to Israel, Curse the Jews and Victory to Islam."
The Washington Post's obituary of Sheldon Adelson defames the the billionaire pro-Israel philanthropist, portraying him as sitting comfortably while, a few miles away, Palestinian "protesters" were wantonly slaughtered by Israel. In fact many of those "protesters" were terrorists taking part in a Hamas-orchestrated operation. The terror groups themselves admitted their involvement, even if the Washington Post won't.
A Jan. 12, 2021 Washington Post report slanders Israel. Post World Views columnist Ishaan Tharoor willfully misrepresents the COVID-19 vaccination situation among Israelis and Palestinians. Tharoor omits key facts, ignores relevant reports and documents, and twists words.
A recent Washington Post report implicitly faults Israel for the COVID-19 vaccination issues in the Palestinian Authority and Hamas ruled territories. But the Post fails to inform readers that both Hamas and the PA did not request vaccines from Israel--and that international agreements stipulate that the Authority itself is responsible for vaccines and healthcare.
In a recent editorial, the Washington Post's deputy opinion editor, Jackson Diehl, uses unhinged language and compares Israel's democratic leader to Vladimir Putin. Diehl proceeds to omit crucial facts about both the so-called Iran Deal, as well as IRGC operative Mohsen Fakhrizadeh.
A Nov. 1, 2020 news article about the Abraham Accords lamented the lack of a permanent peace deal between Israel and Palestinians. But as CAMERA told Post readers: it is not that peace is "elusive"; Palestinian leaders have shown time and again that they're not interested.
