CAMERA prompts corrections to AFP photo captions today which incorrectly claimed that an assailant killed two Israelis in Halamish and which failed to identify the murderer as Palestinian. A Palestinian terrorist stabbed three members of the Salomon family to death.
CAMERA prompts key AFP additions about attacks on Israelis. Jordanian authorities agreed with Israel that a Jordanian worker stabbed an Israeli. Also, Israel added new Temple Mount security measures following a deadly Arab attack on policemen.
A series of AFP photo captions noted: "Israel took the highly unusual decision to close the Al-Aqsa mosque compound for Friday prayers, leading to anger from Muslims and Jordan." Only after communication from CAMERA did the agency add the reason for the closure and new security measures: a deadly attack by Israeli Arabs.
Virtually devoid of actual examples of incitement in the Palestinian school system, an AFP article today gives credence to the Palestinian denial of the widespread phenomenon.
CAMERA prompts correction today of an AFP feature entitled which falsely stated that the 1988 Palestinian Declaration of Independence referred to "two states for two peoples" and that "this recognition is endorsed by" the PLO.
Times of Israel adds key information about Palestinian attacks to an AFP article, one of two recent AFP articles which whitewashed Palestinian violence. AFP's tilt isn't surprising given its employment of Fatah's Nasser Abu Baker.
AFP's Nasser Abu Baker is one of 1,400 delegates to the Seventh Fatah Congress. He is also running for the Fatah Revolutionary Council. How does this square with AFP's stated commitment to impartiality?
CAMERA prompted AFP to acknowledge that "Jewish visitors to the flashpoint Al-Aqsa mosque compound" in actuality means Jewish visitors to their own holy site, the Temple Mount.
Biased captions by AFP and Reuters about Gaza teen Abdulrahman Al-Dabag noted only the Palestinian charge that Israeli troops shot him dead. Thanks to CAMERA, the agencies add that Israel's army said troops used only tear gas.
Plenty of independent analysts have highlighted the pernicious role played by Palestinian incitement to violence. So why does AFP pretend only Israel says it's a problem?
