Delegates of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), meeting in Orlando this past week, passed an amended anti-Israel resolution titled "Peace Not Walls: Stand for Justice in the Holy Land." While the resolution was approved 668 to 269, many delegates and lay members of the church seemed to be offering only tepid support, as indicated by a much closer subsequent vote on a motion to "reconsider."
Part two of CAMERA's investigation into Chris McGreal's Guardian feature comparing Israel to apartheid South Africa reveals more erroneous and distorted reporting by the newspaper's Middle East correspondent.
Word of playwright Tony Kushner's involvement in Steven Spielberg's Munich set off alarms among those familiar with his extreme anti-Israel positions and indifference to facts about the Arab-Israeli conflict. A glance at his statements and affiliations suggests why.
CAMERA asks: Why has the anti-war movement become so intertwined with anti-Israel acitvism?
In his Los Angeles Times review of the British play "My Name is Rachel Corrie," David Gritten describes Rachel Corrie as "a relatively obscure name in her native U.S," one of several distortions about the American who interfered in a closed military area in the Gaza Strip and was killed accidentally.
In his October 20th column, Chicago Tribune public editor Don Wycliff weighed in on the debate surrounding Sabeel, a Jerusalem-based Palestinian Christian organization which is accused of reviving the anti-Semitic "teaching of contempt" dogma long repudiated by most of the Christian world. Wycliff stated that the organization does "classy work."
On May 25, Amnesty International (AI) released its annual report, taking aim, among other things, at the U.S.-led war on terror. NGO-Monitor criticizes AI's report, saying it "reflects the absence of credible research, the abuse of the rhetoric of human rights, and an overriding political agenda."
The U.S.-based, non-governmental organization (NGO), Human Rights Watch, is a self-appointed arbiter of human rights abuses around the world. Theirs would be a noble and worthy mission if it were carried out objectively, without regard to political or ideological agenda. Regrettably, this is not the case.
A "study" by an anti-Israel group claims that New York Times coverage is anti-Palestinian. A closer look proves this claim, along with the pseudoscientific study which produced it, is absurd.
“Public Health News” is a British weekly print and online journal distributed free of charge to British public health professionals, with a circulation of over 14,000. A collaborative project of such eminent professional organizations as the Royal Institute of Public Health, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Royal Society for the Promotion of Health, the Faculty of Public Health, and others, it provides news and features on the latest issues in this medically-related field. It is puzzling and disturbing that such a publication would turn – not to a health professional – but to an anti-Israel activist for an article on health issues in the West Bank and Gaza. The author, Sarah Irving, is part of the notorious International Solidarity Movement, a group that justifies terrorism and supports “armed struggle” against Israel.
