Reuters' Henriette Chacar claims that Israeli Arabs "largely" self-identify as Palestinian. Poll after poll demonstrate that the opposite is true, with only a small minority primarily identifying as Palestinian.
The ecumenical threat to life and limb posed by large crowds unprotected by adequate safety precautions doesn't stand a chance against the enduring false narrative of Israel's persecution of Christians.
"Her partisanship eschews objectivity and ethical news reporting, as she ceaselessly adopts the most extreme positions and smears Israel as a pariah state requiring elimination," CAMERA warned Reuters before Henriette Chacar started writing for the news agency. Her paean to a terrorist is the inevitable outcome of Reuters' failure to rein her in.
CAMERA prompts correction after Reuters qualified the historical fact that the Jewish temples were located on the Temple Mount as unverified, citing "The site, said to have once housed two ancient Jewish temples . . ."
The abandonment of ethical journalism in favor of partisanship reflects the open embrace of anti-Israel narrative which, like faith, is not dependent on facts. Under this paradigm, the historic fact of the ancient Jewish temples' location on the Temple Mount is massaged into nothing more than a matter of Jewish faith.
