Haaretz amends after falsely reporting that Netanyahu's statements about the possibility of deporting Hamas leadership applied to Gaza residents, a fallacious claim which provided tailwind to South Africa's unfounded genocide charge.
The Washington Post's world view on Israel is profoundly distorted. The newspaper's vaunted foreign affairs columnist is once again depriving Palestinians of independent agency, omitting their leadership's predilection for supporting terror and rejecting peace.
A recent Washington Post report is undone by its own biases and editorializing. The article's reliance on one-sided sourcing, and its insistence on misleading omissions, leaves open questions about the direction of the newspaper's Jerusalem bureau.
The Washington Post continues to project its coverage, thoughts and opinions about U.S. politics to the Israeli political sphere. And when its preferred parties and candidates appear to be losing, it claims that democracy is under threat.
In more than half a dozen op-eds and editorials, the Washington Post hides Iran's role in provoking the latest Israel-Hamas War.

The Washington Post can’t seem to find the culprit for the lack of peace between Israelis and Palestinians. It’s not Hamas. It’s not Fatah. Nor is it the Islamic Republic of Iran.

This, the brave opinion writers at the newspaper suggest, are spurring on an attempted genocide of the Jewish people.
The Washington Post has a problem. The newspaper's bias against the Jewish state is not only getting worse, it is getting harder to deny. Indeed, it's even becoming a joke to other journalists.

Writing in POLITICO Magazine, two former U.S. officials hope for the new administration to punish Israel and Gulf Arab states. But as CAMERA noted in the Times of Israel, their suggested strategy leaves much to be desired.
