The Boston Mapping Project, launched on June 3, 2022, is the latest variant of BDS poison and reflects the movement's anti-Jewish bigotry. The sinister and thus far anonymous map targets scores of Jewish organizations in New England and has sparked concern about its shocking premise and stated aims – to disrupt and dismantle the Boston Jewish community. It appears, however, to have backfired. The intense pushback by politicians, the FBI and the Massachusetts Department of Justice, has deepened rifts in the BDS movement over tactics -- whether to call openly for "resistance by all means" (that is, violence) or to maintain the pretense of being non-violent, human rights advocates.
Media coverage of Israel is, with growing frequency, more comparable to activism than actual journalism. Indeed, as the Shireen Abu Akleh controversy highlights, journalists are failing to ask basic questions while simultaneously giving platforms and awards to activists masquerading as reporters.
The Washington Post's recent story cited an “electrical engineer and activist,” using him to steer the story. In fact, he's a known anti-Israel activist with a documented history of associating with antisemites. To the Post this makes him a trusted source. That's “journalism” in 2022.
What is "Jewish Voice for Peace"? It is an anti-Semitic hate group that masquerades as a Jewish social justice, peace-promoting organization. And the mainstream media has largely covered up for it. CAMERA's backgrounder has been expanded and updated to evidence the depths to which the group has sunk in demonstrating its radical anti-Jewish bigotry. It now promotes resources for anti-Semitic engagement and classic, anti-Jewish blood libels that inspired so many massacres of Jews over the years.
If further proof were needed that the anti-Israel BDS campaign antisemitic, a venomous “mapping” campaign defaming and targeting Boston-area Jews provides stunning evidence.
“We need an investigation! (But we already know the outcome....)” is the pseudo-journalistic theme of this article.
The anti-Jewish bigotry that characterizes the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement has become even more apparent as BDS activists have created a local map in Massachusetts to target Jews for being Jews. CAMERA’s backgrounder documents the fundamental anti-Jewish nature of this movement and how it has become a haven for anti-Semites to indulge their racism.
The media is committed to fashioning a narrative in which Israel is wantonly assassinating journalists. A recent statement by the National Press Club, and several articles and tweets from the Washington Post, among others, proves it.
Journalists should ask Representative Tlaib whether she agrees with Osama Siblani’s statements made on that day.
Amnesty International, having been given multiple opportunities to respond when directly presented with evidence that it inaccurately presented a key figure in its “apartheid” report against Israel, has gone silent.
