Focusing on NPR's coverage of a single incident – the deadly explosion that took place near the Al-Ahli hospital in Hamas-run Gaza – this detailed analysis is a case study of the methods NPR reporters use to bolster an anti-Israel narrative and run interference for Israel’s enemies.
NPR's Daniel Estrin and Larry Kaplow have inverted cause and effect; in the public broadcaster's illogical view, Israel’s prevention of terror attacks is responsible for terror attacks.
NPR downgrades the fact that the Jewish Temples were located on the Temple Mount from archeological history to Jewish tradition, and fails to challenge the false claim that Jordan is custodian of Jerusalem's Christian holy sites.
Recent NPR broadcasts continue to echo Palestinian propaganda, blaming Israel for the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and downgrading the Jewish claim to its holiest site.
Two more Western media outlets deceive news consumers by depicting a Palestinian terrorist group as heroic fighters and Israeli counter-terrorist operations as the real evil.
The Western media has increasingly abetted Palestinian propaganda efforts to erase the Jewish claim to Jerusalem and the Temple Mount.

Twice in recent days, NPR's Daniel Estrin's erroneously referred to Israel's 1967 capture of "Palestinian areas" of Jerusalem. No part of Jerusalem was ever Palestinian territory.
