Yasir Arafat’s Timeline of Terror

The media is focusing much attention on Yasir Arafat's legacy. Many of the historical briefs and timelines being published whitewash his decades-long involvement in terrorism. Below is a timeline of some of the key events and terrorist acts associated with Arafat.

CAMERA Op-Ed: The Washington Post Gets Lost on Its Israel Road Trip

The Washington Post takes a road trip to try and figure out why there isn't a Palestinian state. Yet, as CAMERA tells JNS, in more than 4,000 words and 40 photographs, three Post reporters were unable to note the obvious reason: Palestinian rejectionism.

CAMERA Op-Ed: The Palestinian Authority is on the Precipice

The future of the Palestinian Authority is bleak. The PA is led by an unpopular octogenarian, Mahmoud Abbas, who is currently in the sixteenth year of a four year term. Yet, violence has engulfed areas under the PA's control and ominously residents of Hebron have called for the King of Jordan, not Abbas, to end it.

CAMERA Op-Ed: Israel Cracks Down on Tax-Deductible Terrorism

The Israeli government's recent decision to designate six NGOs for their terrorist ties has sparked condemnations from press and policymakers. But as CAMERA tells the Washington Examiner, the evidence of these links has long been in the public domain.

CAMERA Op-Ed: How the Founder of Hezbollah Built the Modern Middle East

Obituaries in Western news outlets noted that Ali Akbar Mohtashamipur was a founder of Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed, U.S.-designated terrorist group that rules Lebanon. But, as CAMERA wrote in The National Interest, Mohtashamipur was more than a founding father of one of the world’s largest terrorist organizations. He was, in fact, one of a handful of men who built the modern Middle East.

CAMERA Op-Ed: The Long History, and High Costs, of Palestinian Intifadas

As CAMERA highlighted in a recent National Review Op-Ed: For the Palestinian leaders who choose to promote them, intifadas are often self-defeating. Going back to the first intifada in the 1930s, anti-Jewish violence and terror often upsets the Palestinian political landscape—often sweeping aside, or weakening, the very Palestinian leaders responsible for inciting them.

The Washington Post’s Opinion Page Attacks Israel and Hides Iran

In more than half a dozen op-eds and editorials, the Washington Post hides Iran's role in provoking the latest Israel-Hamas War. Instead, the newspaper resorts to publishing anti-Israel tirades, including from a former PLO spokesperson, and from someone who should—and not too long ago did—know better.

Foreign Policy Magazine Whitewashes ‘Pay to Slay’

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.

CAMERA Op-Ed: The Palestinian Authority Is Still Paying Terrorists

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.

A Promised Land: Obama’s Memoirs Malign Israel

A Promised Land
By Barack Obama
Crown Publishing, 2020

The first volume of the 44th American president's memoirs are filled with errors and omissions about Israel. And, as CAMERA's book review shows, they are all one-sided. Worse still, Obama even minimizes Palestinian terrorism.
