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.
Israel’s adversaries have always charged the country with misdeeds, but only relatively recently have these alleged evils coalesced into the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS), modeled after the campaign against apartheid South Africa. As a detailed examination shows, the apartheid charges are utterly false. The activists who level these charges deserve no credibility.
Ali Velshi spent much of his Sunday morning weaving a narrative of an evil Jewish state, threading together outright lies with material omissions to tell his false tale of a brutal, undemocratic apartheid state.
One of the LA Times' infamous journalists against journalism, Suhauna Hussain defies the playing rules of ethical journalism with contortions and evasions. With Quidditch-worthy stunts of fictional narrative, she advocates on behalf of anti-Israel partisans opposed to Google's Nimbus contract with Israel.
There’s very little in the piece by Professors Michael Barnett, Nathan J. Brown, Marc Lynch and Shibley Telhami that’s original. But the depth of its dishonesty, even for an opinion piece, is rare.
While the paper may be understandably disappointed in how its case against the anti-BDS law turned out, as an outlet purporting to be engaged in “feisty journalism” and “the fight for truth,” the Arkansas Times owes its readers a minimum of factual accuracy.
Roth’s reaction to his rejection from Harvard's Kennedy School is simply the latest iteration of his penchant for blaming the Jews first, and asking questions later.
Axios not only misleads on the cause of Airbnb's reversal of its boycott decision, but also omits an important component of the story: the overt discrimination involved.
We agree that facts must be central to any discussion of the BDS resolution and the conflict in general. This is why we’re disappointed at the student newspaper's silence over the basic factual errors and egregious omissions in the USG resolution itself. To apply the editorial board’s own words, the resolution “did not even pretend to acknowledge both sides of what, in the end, is a very nuanced situation.”
"Breaking Travel News" loses its compass, searching for the Jewish state's capital, but turning up in Tel Aviv. The early takeoff of the travel publication's World FIFA coverage crashes and burns with anti-Israel invective demonizing the "occupation" or "apartheid" state.
Colonialism, the Washington Post told readers in 2016, “isn’t something to celebrate.” Yet the Post fully embraces colonialism when it is in the service of an anti-Israel narrative. The newspaper’s recent reporting and commentary provide ample proof.
At Oberlin, the Jewish Studies department appears to be part of the problem, not part of the solution. But readers would never know this from the CJN's effusive coverage.
