Two more Western media outlets deceive news consumers by depicting a Palestinian terrorist group as heroic fighters and Israeli counter-terrorist operations as the real evil.
One of the most absurd fronts in an ongoing Arab/Palestinian war on Israel’s legitimacy is the inane fight about who owns the original recipe of popular food. It is part of a larger campaign conducted by detractors of the Jewish state. And the New York Times has, once again, weighed in with a story that highlights their views.
In the New York Times, an article about the observance of Judaism's holiest day, Yom Kippur, becomes a vehicle for eroding Israel's legitimacy as a Jewish state.
A recent NYT "critics pick" was "Foragers," a partisan, political film on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by Palestinian filmmaker Jumana Manna. Reviewer Will Heinrich not only accepts the filmmaker’s messaging as unvarnished truth, but bolsters and amplifies it in his own words to falsely suggest Israel is an apartheid state.
For the second week in a row, the front page of the New York Times featured an article that either provided fuel for antisemitism or sanitized those who have been accused of it. The latest purports to expose the role of Russian disinformation in dividing the Women’s March protest movement, but downplays the antisemitism of the movement's leaders, particularly that of Linda Sarsour, and whitewashes the BDS movement she promotes.
A much ballyhooed New York Times investigation of Hasidic schools includes multiple aspersions that feed into anti-Jewish tropes about money, greed and exploitation. These are cast without context, statistics or other rigorous, supportive evidence. It is a style of advocacy journalism that fuels antisemitism and undermines what would be better achieved with a properly contextualized and statistically supported report.
Palestinian Holocaust distortion is more widespread than the public might imagine. It is antisemitic at its core and is an obstacle to peace.
The Western media has increasingly abetted Palestinian propaganda efforts to erase the Jewish claim to Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. Far too many journalists today accept the historic revisionism and political falsehoods put out by Palestinian activists and leaders and promote it with their own jargon and linguistic tricks.
Although the Wilson Center promotes itself as "the nation’s key non-partisan policy forum," a piece by outgoing Fellow Laura Robson, masquerading as a scholarly analysis, puts forth a collection of hackneyed propaganda claims against Israel.
The anti-Jewish bigotry that characterizes the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement has become even more apparent as BDS activists have created a local map in Massachusetts to target Jews for being Jews. 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.
