The Cape Cod Times whitewashes the pro-Palestinian International Solidarity Movement (ISM) in its July 5, 2004 feature "Mideast sojourn inspires activist" by Karen Jeffrey. The article lionizes the group and one of its activists, Neal Ahern. While the piece notes that a member of the Canadian Parliament nominated the organization for a Nobel Peace Prize, it does not include a single mention of the many controversial statements or actions of ISM and its members.
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.
Members of the pro-Palestinian group openly condone terrorism, but to many journalists they are "peace activists."
Columns marking the one-year anniversary of the death of Rachel Corrie ignored or minimized the role of International Solidarity Movement, which recruited Corrie to be a "human shield" in Gaza.
The following CAMERA letter-to-the-editor concerning the death of pro-Palestinian activist Rachel Corrie appeared yesterday in the International Herald Tribune:
These women have one commonality: they are willing to speak under the banner of "three women, three faiths, one shared city."
