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.
Foreign Policy magazine claims “one reason the Palestinians swiftly rejected the flawed U.S. peace plan was that it does nothing to address their claims for water rights.” But there's no evidence to suggest that this is the case, and plenty of evidence to suggest otherwise.
It doesn’t take a heart surgeon to figure out why there isn’t peace between Israelis and Palestinians. But the Washington Post seems to think otherwise.
It has become common to hear that the U.S. government has always had an unwavering “pro-Israel bias.” But as CAMERA noted in The Jerusalem Post, history is never as simple, or as neat, as common narratives suppose.
There's a problem with the latest peace plan that the media is omitting: Palestinian rejectionism. As CAMERA noted in a Jan. 28, 2020 Daily Caller op-ed, Palestinian leaders have rejected numerous proposals for peace and statehood.
CAMERA rebuts a Washington Post op-ed by two former U.S. State Department officials that incorrectly asserts that settlements are the chief obstruction to peace between Israelis and Palestinians.
Several news outlets have covered the Palestinian Authority's refusal to participate in a recent peace conference held in Bahrain. But many in the media played the PA's rejectionism on the U.S., failing to note that Palestinian leadership has a century long history of rejecting negotiations and statehood.
The latest U.S. peace initiative for Israelis and Palestinians has received considerable coverage. But as CAMERA details in the Algemeiner, reporters have failed to note the long history of Palestinian rejectionism.
When it comes to Israel, The Washington Post seems incapable of reporting the whole truth. The newspaper's selective reporting and pattern of omissions are a telltale sign of its bias.
A recent report by Politico claims that Palestinians are "coming to support" a one-state solution. In fact, history shows that Palestinian Arab leaders have always rejected the idea of a Jewish state.
The media often refers to Fatah, the movement that dominates the Palestinian Authority, as "secular" and "moderate." The facts, however, suggest otherwise.
