Guardian Publishes Seale’s Tirade Against Israel

The Guardian publishes an Op-Ed by Patrick Seale accusing Israel of conducting a ruthless operation in Gaza primarily aimed not at reducing the rocket attacks or freeing captured Israeli corporal Gilad Shalit but rather at squelching Palestinian moderates. The piece is riddled with unsubstantiated speculation, exaggerations, distorted language and false assertions.

More Terror Bias at NPR

A new analysis by CAMERA shows National Public Radio reporters and commentators continue to employ a double standard when reporting on terrorists and terror attacks in Israel versus terror attacks perpetrated elsewhere. When a bombing occurs that targets civilians in London, Istanbul, Sinai or Madrid, the perpetrators are routinely described as terrorists by NPR. However, the same is not true when an attack occurs in Israel and the perpetrators are Palestinians.

NPR Coddles Hamas

A segment airing on May 9th about U.S. policy towards Hamas typifies the one-sided NPR focus on critics of Israel. Interviewer Mike Shuster and his guests sanitize the Hamas-dominated Palestinian Authority while falsely equating Israeli and Hamas' attitudes toward peace.

Guardian’s False Apartheid Charges—Part II

Part two of CAMERA's investigation into Chris McGreal's Guardian feature comparing Israel to apartheid South Africa reveals more erroneous and distorted reporting by the newspaper's Middle East correspondent.

Guardian portrays Israel as an Apartheid State

Guardian Cheerleads for Hamas

While European Union and American officials are aghast at the electoral victory of the terrorist organization Hamas, London's Guardian newspaper wasted no time in burnishing the image of the group sworn to Israel's destruction and treating its victory as a positive development.

Partisanship in the Guardian’s Middle East Coverage

In recent years, some have accused the Guardian of fueling hostility towards the Jewish state through its unbalanced reporting of events in the Middle East. The coverage by Brian Whitaker, who has served as the paper's Middle East Editor since May 1999 and contributes articles for Guardian Unlimited, the internet edition of the Guardian, as well as the Guardian paper, is representative of the paper's perspective.

Key Context Missing in Globe article about Saudi donor to Harvard and Georgetown

On December 13th, the Boston Globe reported that Saudi Arabian prince Alwaleed bin Talal is giving $20 million to Harvard University to establish a university-wide program in Islamic studies. He is also donating another $20 million gift to Georgetown University for a similar program. What the Globe failed to mention, however, is that the prince had previously pledged $27 million during a 2002 telethon for the Support of the al-Quds Intifada.

One Day in September (1999)

Directed by Kevin Macdonald Narrated by Michael Douglas English, German, B&W, Color 94 min
While Steven Spielberg’s 2005 film, "Munich," blurs the line between historical fiction and real events to tell the story of an Israeli hit team’s hunt for those involved in the 1972 Olympic massacre of Israeli athletes, this Academy Award-winning film focuses on the massacre itself through live film clips, news broadcasts and interviews with police, close relatives of victims, and the sole surviving perpetrator.
