The Washington Post's World Views column has found a problem with the Abraham Accords, the normalization agreements between Israel and several Muslim majority nations. The agreements, Post World Views columnist Ishaan Tharoor says, make Palestinian statehood less likely. Yet, the blame belongs with Palestinian leadership alone.
When it comes to reporting on the Middle East, Foreign Policy magazine has shown a carelessness with facts, preferring anti-Israel narratives instead. Several recent report, including one on Christians in Hamas-ruled Gaza, are littered with omissions.
In the span of one week, the Washington Post ran two opinion pieces calling out antisemitism in the halls of Congress and the campuses of our nation's universities.It is past time for major U.S. newspapers to devote column space to the ominous rise of antisemitism. The Post's decision to highlight antisemitism is welcome, particularly, as CAMERA notes, due to the paper's own, and often troubling, history.
On Sept. 13, 2021, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett met with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi in Sharm El-Sheikh in the Sinai Peninsula. The event was the first public invitation for an Israeli premier to meet on Egyptian soil in a decade, but many in the media failed to place it in its proper historical context.
A recent POLITICO “exclusive” purported to provide the details of Rep. Andy Levin's recently introduced “Two-State Solution” Act. But the report, like the legislation itself, omitted crucial details about the Arab-Israeli conflict, international law and Jewish history.
The California Board of Parole has voted to grant release to Sirhan Sirhan, the assassin of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. But a POLITICO report omitted Sirhan's motivation: Kennedy's support for Israel.
The Washington Post's Dana Milbank rightfully called out Rep. Rashida Tlaib for her most recent antisemitic comments. Yet, bizarrely the Post tried to blame former President Donald Trump for Tlaib's behavior, effectively depriving her of independent agency. But if Milbank is looking to affix blame for rising antisemitism, he can start with his own employer.
The Taliban want to assuage Western concerns and secure aid, support and even diplomatic recognition. The Taliban, like other Islamist terrorist groups, such as Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, view the media as a means to their own diabolical ends. But, as CAMERA tells the Washington Post, journalists and media consumers alike shouldn't let themselves be hoodwinked by Islamist terrorists.
Terrorist groups and autocrats routinely use intimidation to influence press coverage to their advantage. As CAMERA noted in a recent Washington Examiner op-ed, the Taliban, for example, has a long history of threatening journalists. And, as a recent assault by Fatah against two Washington Post reporters illustrates, the practice extends from Kabul to Ramallah and beyond.
One hundred years ago this May, the ruling British authorities in Mandate Palestine appointed Amin al-Husseini to the position of Grand Mufti of Jerusalem. As CAMERA highlighted for Mosaic Magazine, the British had hoped to use Husseini for their own ends. Instead, the future Nazi collaborator used them. The full story of Husseini's rise to power can now be told.
