The Los Angeles Times takes a first, partial step towards clarifying Saree Makdisi's false claim that there are no high schools in Arab communities in Israel's south. Editors have yet to make clear, though, that more than 40 such schools exist.
Professor Saree Makdisi of UCLA is unfettered by journalistic or academic standards. He falsely claimed Friday in The Los Angeles Times, “there is not a single high school in the Palestinian communities in the Negev desert in southern Israel.” Actually, there are more than 40.
UCLA Prof. Saree Makdisi, an anti-Israel polemicist, popped up in The Los Angeles Times again. This time he tried to shield BDS intolerance with academic freedom. Thanks to The Los Angeles Jewish Journal, CAMERA exposed his fraud.
Once again, the Los Angeles Times gives a platform to Saree Makdisi, the UCLA comparative literature professor who regularly argues for a "binational state," meaning the dismantlement of the Jewish state.
M.J. Rosenberg argues in the Los Angeles Times that “Israel can't be delegitimized, and no one is trying to do so.” In fact, one does not have to look beyond the LA Times Op-Ed pages to find a slew of columns doing just that.
Saree Makdisi, a radical UCLA professor, vilifies Palestinian negotiators as too moderate by falsely charging that the leaked "Palestine Papers" reveal that they agreed to cede West Bank settlements.
The letter notes that a recent decision by a indepedent bookstore owner to disinvite anti-Israel professor Sari Makdisi should have stemmed from fact-checking, not censorship.
CAMERA staff prompted a correction at National Public Radio yesterday, following an earlier "All Things Considered" report which falsely stated that Hezbollah fired rockets at Israel only after Israel hit Lebanon with airstrikes last summer.
In July 2006, Los Angeles Times correctly reported that Hezbollah was the first to launch projectiles in last summer's war. Since then, the newspaper has twice refused to correct erroneous claims that Israel was the first to fire.
