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.
A recent USA Today timeline on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is rife with omissions. Intifadas, terror campaigns, rejected peace offers, thousands of dead Israelis, all are but a fraction of what four USA Today reporters left out.
The Washington Post is failing. In more than half a dozen reports on Israel's counterterrorist operation in Jenin, the Post repeatedly failed to provide crucial context and essential facts. The failures are so endemic, and so pronounced, that they raise questions about the future of the newspaper's coverage of the Israel-Islamist conflict.
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.
“Those who don’t learn history,” the philosopher George Santayana famously warned, “are doomed to repeat it.” But as CAMERA tells the Algemeiner, those who don't learn history are also inclined to become reporters at the Washington Post.
Two former U.S. diplomats take to the pages of the Washington Post to offer what is exceedingly bad advice, calling to punish Israel and the Arab and Muslim nations who are making peace with the Jewish state.
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.
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.
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.
An Oct. 28, 2021 Washington Post report noted recent opposition by the Biden administration to proposed Israeli "settlements." Yet, as CAMERA noted in a JNS Op-Ed: Palestinian Arab leaders consider all of Israel to be a "settlement."
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.
