Forbes’ Fundraising Appeal on Behalf of UNRWA

"UNRWA is extraordinary–with an amazing cadre of educators and staff that need support" is the message of what is essentially a Forbes fundraising appeal for the U.N. agency. Don't expect to read anything about anti-Israel incitement in schools, perpetuation of the conflict or mismanagement.

MSNBC’s Ayman Mohyeldin Pushes False Narrative of Dispossession

Five years after commendably clarifying maps which falsely depicted Israel as having dispossessed Palestinians of their territory, MSNBC again pushes a false narrative of Palestinian dispossession. This time, Ayman Moyheldin conceals that the El-Kurd family faces eviction because they refused to pay rent for their Jewish-owned home in Jerusalem's Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.

Reuters Errs on ‘Palestinian Soldiers’

CNN’s Fareed Zakaria Wrong on Shelved Annexation Plan, Settlement Construction

CNN's Fareed Zakaria falsely cited Benjamin Netanyahu's shelved "promise of annexation of the West Bank." But the prime minister's plan involved only Israeli settlements and the Jordan Valley, some 30 percent of the West Bank, not the disputed territory in its entirety. And, contrary to Zakaria's slip, no "new settlements" have been approved.
