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.
With Abbas' cancellation of elections on the pretext that Israel has not said it will permit voting in eastern Jerusalem, some reports mislead on Israel's Oslo-mandated responsibilities concerning Palestinian elections. As for Palestinian electoral responsibilities under Oslo, those simply aren't on the radar.
In January 2021, the Palestinian Authority announced that it would be holding elections for the first time in more than a decade. The announcement is part of the PA's strategy to appeal to a new U.S. administration. But amid underreported human rights abuses by the PA the move is already backfiring.
“Joe Biden,” a Politico headline blared on April 6, 2021, “is not planning to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.” This may or may not be true. But what is clear is that Politico isn’t interested in providing readers with the truth about the conflict.
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.
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.
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.
A Jan. 25, 2021 report by Foreign Policy Magazine claims that the Palestinian Authority has “pledged to overhaul a controversial welfare policy for militants convicted of violence against Israelis.” This is a convoluted way of describing the PA's policy of financing terrorist attacks on Jews.
U.S. policymakers are contemplating restoring aid to the Palestinian Authority (PA), as well as "working to reopen" the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) office in Washington D.C. But as CAMERA wrote in a Jan. 21, 2021 Newsweek op-ed, Palestinian leaders continue to pay salaries to terrorists. Both press and policymakers alike should take note.
