CAMERA prompts the Associated Press to clarify a misleading report that Israel "refus[ed] to accept responsibility for vaccinating the Palestinians," citing Gaza, the West Bank and east Jerusalem. The amended copy now notes Israel's vaccination of Jerusalem Palestinians and more than 100,000 West Bank Palestinians.
CAMERA prompts AP correction of numerous captions which misidentified Palestinians clashing with police at Jerusalem's Damascus Gate as "worshippers."
"Intelligence officials in the U.S. and Israel implicate Tel Aviv," says a Times subheading, using the common journalistic practice of referring to a nation's capital city as shorthand for the country's government.
About Jesus's birthplace, where the vaccine is less available, New York Times readers would reasonably conclude — wrongly — that, unlike Jerusalem, there were no crowds in churches, no celebrations on the street.
"Emotional stories" of Palestinian children "crossing the checkpoint on the bus ride in from East Jerusalem to West Jerusalem" are just that: emotional stories. The non-existence of the checkpoint in question begs the question: Did the children really tell the stories, or was that an embellishment on the part of the adult author, Ruth Ebenstein?
CAMERA prompts correction of a Haaretz Op-Ed by international lawyer Shannon Maree Torrens which falsely claimed that Israel had refused a WHO request to provide Palestinian health workers with the vaccine. As The Independent had already clarified, in "informal discussions," Israel indicated willingness to explore the option.
Five years after commendably clarifying maps which falsely depicted Israel as having dispossessed Palestinians of their territory, MSNBC again pushes a false narrative of Palestinian dispossession. This time, Ayman Moyheldin conceals that the El-Kurd family faces eviction because they refused to pay rent for their Jewish-owned home in Jerusalem's Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.
Echoing false information initially released by Palestinian government sources, The Los Angeles Times falsely reports that Saeb Erekat was transferred to a hospital near Tel Aviv for treatment of coronavirus. The fact that he was actually treated in a Jerusalem hospital is a politically inconvenient fact.
News coverage of Malawi's announcement about opening an embassy in Jerusalem included a flurry of inaccurate articles, most misreporting that the nation would be the first African nation to open an embassy in the capital. While Malawi be the only African nation with an embassy in Jerusalem, several others existed in the past, and were closed after the 1973 Yom Kippur War.
The erroneous assertion in Haaretz's English edition that the Sumreen home in Silwan was transferred to the Custodian of Absentee Properties based on a "debunked claim" is contradicted by the Hebrew version of the same article, which correctly cites the heirs' residence in enemy countries at the time that their father passed away.
