"Historically it has been antisemites, not Jews, who have read 'chosen' as code for Jewish supremacism," wrote the Guardian's reader editor in 2011 in a critical column. This week, Haaretz's Gideon Levy invokes the classical antisemitic trope.
Nearly seven years to the day after Haaretz's Gideon Levy falsely reported that West Bank Palestinians have just one single place to swim, he extends the fallacy to the Gaza Strip.
Haaretz journalist Gideon Levy is a fringe radical who justifies terrorism, dismisses Palestinian genocidal rhetoric, promotes BDS and dreams of a one-state solution rather than a Jewish state. Levy recently completed a cross-Canada speaking tour sponsored by a Canadian BDS organization and interviews on Canadian radio, providing an example of how Haaretz and its radical ideologues poison the public discourse by demonizing Israel.
Arguing that the Israeli occupation is more brutal than the Syrian or Libyan regimes, Ha’aretz’s Gideon Levy calls on Israeli Arabs and West Bank Palestinians to violently revolt.
In response to communication from CAMERA, Ha'aretz today commendably corrects, in Hebrew and English, Gideon Levy's false claim that according to Amnesty International "only 92 Palestinian fighters" were killed in Cast Lead.
In 2012, the media blundered all too many times in reporting on the Middle East. It was difficult to narrow it down, but CAMERA has identified our Top Ten MidEast Media Mangles.
Hanoch Marmari, a former editor-in-chief of Ha'aretz, details the multiple failures of Gideon Levy and his editors with respect to the publication of the "apartheid" poll article and its paltry clarification. If only the current editor would speak out.
Days after a false headline alleging that the majority of Jews support apartheid in Israel, Ha'aretz buries a clarification on page 5. This is the second time within two months that Ha'aretz corrected an erroneous page-one headline. Will editors conduct an internal inquiry?
