Hamas' targeting of Jewish civilians is part and parcel of its mission — as set out in its governing Covenant or Charter — to "fight the Jews and kill them and to replace Israel with an Islamic state. According to the Charter, any type of peace negotiation and diplomatic end to the conflict "stand in contradiction to the principles of the Islamic Resistance Movement."
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.
The Washington Post misleads on the true nature of the BDS movement; failing to report its documented links to terrorism and its true objective: The destruction of Israel. While it was busy filing inaccurate reports on BDS, The Post ignored a Palestinian terrorist attack and Palestinian political developments.
When the Israeli army disputed Hamas' account which blamed Israel for the death of 12-year-old Shady Abdel-Aal, AP rose to the journalistic challenge with accurate coverage. Reuters responsibly corrected when presented with information contradicting Hamas. AFP, in contrast, has yet to correct even as Hamas itself has backtracked.
CAMERA takes to the pages of The Washington Post to address the paper's coverage of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA). CAMERA tells the paper's readers about UNRWA's politicized definition of "refugee" and the organization's documented links to terror groups.
Lutheran leaders and peacemakers, including Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton have a tough time mentioning Hamas's misdeeds in their public statements about the suffering in Gaza.
In several recent reports, Foreign Policy omits UNRWA’s history of promoting anti-Jewish violence and Palestinian rejectionism. Foreign Policy minimizes issues with the U.N. agency and unfairly stereotypes those seeking to reform aid to Palestinians.
CAMERA prompts correction of a Los Angeles Times article which erroneously stated that Gazans launched "dozens" of flaming kites and balloons at Israel since March 30. In fact, Palestinian arsonists have launched dozens of incendiary attacks on a daily basis.
In their recent reports, both Foreign Policy Magazine and The Washington Post omit UNRWA’s ties to terror groups and promotion of anti-Jewish violence. UNRWA, as CAMERA highlighted in a recent Op-Ed, has a long and sordid history—and the media should report it, not cover it up.
Palestinian rulers oppressing and brutalizing their own people seldom make the front page. The reason is simple: The media is often uninterested in reporting on Palestinian affairs unless Israel can be blamed.
The Washington Post minimizes—and often fails to report—Palestinian anti-Jewish violence. The paper has increasingly underplayed threats facing the Jewish state.
