The Washington Post continues to obfuscate on the goals of the anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) effort. The Post hides the real agenda of BDS and omits the movement's ties to terrorist-linked entities. In so doing, the newspaper violates its own stated standards and policies.
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.
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.
In a gross violation of journalistic ethics and the network's own published guidelines against editorializing in news stories, Deutsche Welle Arabic television anchorwoman Dima Tarhini editorialized that Palestinian moves against Israel at the International Criminal Court is "a step we have been waiting for a long time."
Doctors Without Borders gunman Hani Majdalawi "didn't even know how to use a weapon," said his brother Osama in The Los Angeles Times, casting doubt on the Israeli charge. A post earlier on Osama's Facebook page, however, boasted that Hani "bought the weapon with his own money." Osama cites hackers as at fault for the discrepancy.
AP corrects a caption which ignored the key outcome of Jibril Rajoub's press conference Monday: the Palestinian soccer official announced he would appeal FIFA's sanctions put in place after he called on fans to burn Messi shirts. Separately, editors correct an erroneous reference to a star of David and "Palestine flag."
Roll Call argues that the Democratic Party is increasingly disenchanted with Israel—and implies that the Jewish state is to blame for this shift. But the newspaper relies on both superficial history and untrustworthy sources to reach its preordained conclusion.
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.
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.
CAMERA prompts Reuters to correct after an article erroneously referred to Tel Aviv as shorthand for Israel. The news agency also corrected a headline which inaccurately stated that a new Israeli laws "bans some left-wing groups," while the law in question also affects right-wing groups which take action against Israel's army.
