The piece by a self-described “scholar of Palestinian history,” is rife with historical distortions, such as, the claim that Palestinians wished to "throw Jews into the sea" was a result of “an Israeli media campaign following the 1967 war."
In French, Agence France Presse managed to report accurately on Doctors Without Borders' entreaty to Palestinian and Israeli authorities to address the healthcare situation in Gaza. Why couldn't they do it in English?
An AFP infographic grossly minimizes the impact of Palestinian attacks on Israel while at the same time emphasizing the impact of Israel's military response on Gaza.
Why does the New York Times pretend Israeli civilians are "caught up in the fighting" between Hamas and Israel instead of acknowledging that Hamas targets Israeli civilians? Perhaps because that gets in the way of the newspaper's preferred "both sides" narrative.
By repeating up the language of Turkey's state-run media organization, the New York Times also repeated three errors about a clash along Gaza's border with Israel.
Too often, Vox reporters give the impression they're improvising their way through the news, delivering "facts" that might feel right to the reporter, but aren't actually true. Most recently: Vox claims Palestinian rockets in the days before the 2014 Gaza war were a "response" to Israeli airstrikes.
NPR and the New York Times have reported on "rioters" before. So why, when covering crowds of men hurling stones, throwing firebombs, attacking a border fence, setting fire to fields and buildings, and shooting Israelis, does it describe the perpetrators as "protesters"?
As Palestinians in Gaza, backed by Hamas and other Palestinian terror groups, continue to riot, and Israeli soldiers struggle to keep the demonstrators from the country’s borders, media coverage has often failed to accurately report on the clashes.
BBC's Jeremy Bowen promotes the anti-historical account that the Six Day War was a war of choice for Israel and that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict arose as a result of that war.
For years, the Palestinians have commanded the attention of the media, political agendas and campus activism. Yet a numerical examination of the human toll of wars in the Middle East suggests its importance to regional turmoil is exaggerated.
