CAMERA Op-Ed: The U.S. State Department Should Take Bernard Lewis’s Advice

The U.S. State Department's 2020 Human Rights Report on Iran has whitewashed the regime's 2019 massacre of protesters. And a recent U.S. Congressional Research Service report treats anti-Israel propagandist Edward Said as a credible source. Both entities should heed the historian Bernard Lewis's warning about confronting the past.

CAMERA Op-Ed: POLITICO’s Softball Interview with Iran’s Foreign Minister

POLITICO recently conducted an interview with Iran's foreign minister, Javad Zarif. But instead of asking the necessary tough questions about the Islamic Republic's support for terror and its repression of the people living under its imperial rule, the news organization punted.

CAMERA Op-Ed: Iran’s ‘Nuclear Fatwa’ is Nuclear Nonsense

CAMERA Op-Ed: The Media Isn’t Telling the Truth About the Houthis

Press and policymakers might obfuscate on the matter, but the facts are clear: the Houthis are a terrorist group. The Yemen-based organization receives arms and support from the world's foremost state sponsor of terrorism, Iran, and there is nothing ambiguous about their motto: "Death to America, Death to Israel, Curse the Jews and Victory to Islam."

Foreign Policy Magazine Whitewashes ‘Pay to Slay’

A Jan. 25, 2021 report by Foreign Policy Magazine claims that the Palestinian Authority has “pledged to overhaul a controversial welfare policy for militants convicted of violence against Israelis.” This is a convoluted way of describing the PA's policy of financing terrorist attacks on Jews.
