A recent Washington Post piece on the anti-Israel organization IfNotNow omits the group's troubling history, association and funding. As CAMERA highlights, IfNotNow isn't what it claims to be.
The Washington Post is unwilling to provide readers with the facts about the anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement. Worse still, the paper takes claims by BDS supporters like Omar Shakir and his employer, Human Rights Watch, at face value.
The Washington Post gives a platform to the small number of Jewish organizations that are anti-Zionist, treating them as somehow representative of the majority of Jewry. They're not.
Echoing Peace Now talking points, the AP charges Israel with “systematic discrimination” in east Jerusalem — without the data to support the claim.
CAMERA prompts correction of a Haaretz article which incorrectly reported that the Jerusalem District Court received no evidence suggesting that Human Rights Watch's Omar Shakir had participated in BDS activity, including while serving in his capacity in Israel.
Journalism is failing. Not because of revenue issues and the rise of digital media. But because of decreasing standards and ethics. The Washington Post, which paid ten million dollars for a Super Bowl ad but isn't willing to pay for an ombudsman, is a case in point.
CAMERA sent a letter to Rev. Darrell Cates, Director of Conference and Church Relations for the Oklahoma United Methodist Foundation about the Christ at the Checkpoint Conference he helped organize last year. In the letter, CAMERA challenged conference organizers to decide between "anti-normalization" and genuine peace activism.
The Washington Post uses unattributed Palestinian officials and shady NGOs as sources in a lengthy report on an archaeological dig in Jerusalem.
"Time to Break the Silence on Palestine" demands Michelle Alexander's New York Times Op-Ed, as if the very same paper has not been publishing a daily drumbeat of material focused on alleged Israeli crimes, real and imagined. The only "silence on Palestine" has been on Palestinian conduct, as the paper's own public editor noted in 2014.
