Compelling evidence has emerged indicating that UNRWA employees took part in the October 7 massacre. As CAMERA tells the Algemeiner, this is part of a long-standing pattern at the UN agency. The Washington Post, however, ignores the long history, and sordid mission, of UNRWA.
It is a well documented fact that Hamas committed acts of sexual violence on October 7. But in the latest example of its fall from journalistic grace, the Washington Post raises doubts that such evil acts occurred. As CAMERA tells JNS, this is to the Post's eternal shame.
The Washington Post has a favorite source: Hamas. As CAMERA tells JNS, the newspaper is determined to parrot the terrorist group's propaganda.
A Hamas press release has accused Israel of harvesting the organs of dead Palestinians. A Washington Post reprint of the Hamas statement tells readers that ‘the claims could not be independently verified.’
CAMERA initiated the mobile campaign due to concerns about the Washington Post’s reliance on Hamas-provided casualty figures, notably those from the Hamas-run Gaza Health Ministry.
The executive director of the Council on American Islamic Relations hailed the October 7th massacre of civilians by Hamas, prompting a rebuke from the White House. Yet the Washington Post, which frequently quotes the faux civil rights organization, failed to note either the rebuke or CAIR's praise for Hamas.
The Washington Post belatedly corrects on an inaccurate claim meant to make the IDF's bombing campaign in Gaza look disproportionate. It turns out that relying on a collector of Nazi memorabilia, whose history of anti-Israel bias is a matter of public record, was a poor decision.
The press has helped Hamas by playing into its narrative. Post columnists like Ishaan Tharoor and Karen Attiah have accused the Jewish state of genocide while actively obfuscating Israel's efforts to limit civilian casualties and Hamas's efforts to encourage them. As CAMERA tells the Washington Times, Hamas wants their human shields. And too many in the press want to shield Hamas.
The Washington Post has accused Israel of genocide. But as CAMERA tells JNS, facts show that Israel is actively working to reduce casualties while Hamas is working to encourage them. But for the Post, Hamas remains a trusted source.
Both common sense and experience should tell journalists not to trust Hamas, a genocidal U.S.-designated terrorist group that uses human shields. Both journalists and policymakers, including the U.S. Secretary of State, have warned not to do so. But the Washington Post is advocating for trusting the terror organization.
