The battle in the Shejaiyya neighborhood of Gaza City has been much in the news due to heavy casualties on both sides.

In the latest "Ha'aretz, Lost in Translation," the English edition falsely reports that Jewish prayer is permitted on the Temple Mount. This is an egregious error given that only Muslims are permitted to pray at the site.
Have you heard about the Palestinian hunger strike to protest the "collective punishment"? Probably not, because that is not what is happening, unless you read Ha'aretz's English edition.
Vacuum and Ha'aretz's sloppy journalism about the use of birth control by Ethiopian Jews set the stage for Israel's demonization.
Do most Israelis support an apartheid regime in the country and do they advocate discrimination against Arabs? An article by Gideon Levy in Ha'aretz highlighted with sensational but distorted headlines twists facts to promote the apartheid canard against Israel.

Ha'aretz's Sefi Rachlevsky falsely claims that Rabbi Dov Lior ruled that soldiers who evacuate outposts should be treated as Nazis. Presspectiva, CAMERA's Hebrew site, presses for an apology.
Ha'aretz's Amira Hass uncritically relays Palestinian charges about Israeli water use, making no effort to take into account opposing claims and ignoring facts and figures which refute Israel's critics.
