UPDATED: “Jewish Voice for Peace” (JVP): What the Media is Concealing

What is "Jewish Voice for Peace"? It is an anti-Semitic hate group that masquerades as a Jewish social justice, peace-promoting organization and the mainstream media has been derelict in covering up for it. CAMERA's backgrounder, which has been expanded and updated, evidences the destructive, hate-mongering nature of the group.

The Battle Over Defining Antisemitism

Antisemitism, history's oldest hatred, has re-emerged decades after the Holocaust in the guise of hostility toward Jewish nationalism and a Jewish state. There is an ongoing battle between those who aim to defeat such anti-Jewish bigotry and those who campaign to render it socially acceptable.

The BLM Movement and Antisemitism

The question of whether to embrace the Black Lives Matter movement and its leadership as a whole and ignore or dismiss anti-Zionism/antisemitism coming from within it as relatively inconsequential or to call it out for institutional antisemitism has become a point of contention within the Jewish community.

Black Lives Matter, JVP’s Deadly Exchange, and Israel

When legitimate grievances are co-opted and hijacked by opportunists seeking support for their own causes — under the guise of intersectionality — problems will inevitably arise.

CAMERA’s backgrounder documents the fundamental anti-Jewish nature of this movement and how it has become a haven for anti-Semites to indulge their racism.

NY Times Frames Iron-Dome Researchers as Killers and Destroyers

Unable or unwilling to portray Israel in an entirely good light, a New York Times article about the Israeli Directorate of Defense Research & Development's efforts to combat the Covid-19 pandemic begins by casting the department in derogatory terms that Israel’s enemies might use.

Anti-Israel Propaganda Book Mentioned in NY Times “By the Book” Column

The New York Times "By the Book" column about various authors' book choices includes a widely discredited piece of anti-Israel propaganda by Ilan Pappé. While the author in question speaks disparagingly about fiction "masquerading" as non-fiction, she is not talking about Pappé's book. That remains on her nightstand as a recommended read.

The United Nations’ WHO is Not a Neutral Player

The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed to the world the WHO's politicization of its mission, but this is not the first time WHO has been criticized for using its platform for partisan propaganda. CAMERA explains how the WHO's approach to Palestinian healthcare has long been politicized.
