Amanpour presents guest Gundar-Goshen’s false theory that alleged Israeli Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, cynically exploited by Prime Minister Netanyahu, is the reason that the peace process with the Palestinians has failed.
CAMERA takes to the pages of the Philadelphia Inquirer to correct a misleading report, and to note that it is the Palestinian Authority, not Israel, which has continuously rejected peace.
A recent report by Politico claims that Palestinians are "coming to support" a one-state solution. In fact, history shows that Palestinian Arab leaders have always rejected the idea of a Jewish state.
The Washington Post's offered extensive, and often misleading, coverage of Israel's elections. Post reporters and op-eds portrayed Israeli PM Bibi Netanyahu as the obstacle to peace, while completely omitting the responsibility of Palestinian leadership.
The New York Times claims that the Oslo Accords "committed both sides to a two-state solution." They did no such thing.
Almost every day brings new evidence that the New York Times has become a propaganda source, where history and current events alike are distorted and ordinary professional norms of objectivity are cast aside. A case in point is the recent "analysis" of the failed Oslo talks.
Twenty-five years after the Oslo Accords, many media outlets, and a new "documentary" from HBO, omit the reasons for their failure. Those watching the HBO film are presented with superficial history and images, with much of the real story left on the cutting room floor.
Media coverage of the delayed transfer of tons of mail sent to West Bank Palestinians doesn't deliver the full story, omitting crucial details along with relevant context and erasing nuance.
The PA and its leaders have a long and tragic history of rejecting peace and proliferating terror, irrespective of who sits in the White House. And the press, responsible in large measure for crafting the first draft of history, would do well to record it.
Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Charles Krauthammer's spoke at a CAMERA conference in 1993 at Brandeis University. To honor his memory, we are republishing his speech.
