According to many recent flawed news accounts, the “flare-up” in violence began only with the introduction of a new Israeli government and has been driven by extremist Israelis. The data, however, disagrees. Not only did the “flare-up” begin long before the current government took power in November 2022, but it has been overwhelmingly driven by Palestinian attacks.
The Washington Post's world view on Israel is profoundly distorted. The newspaper's vaunted foreign affairs columnist is once again depriving Palestinians of independent agency, omitting their leadership's predilection for supporting terror and rejecting peace.
The Washington Post's coverage of Palestinians remains lopsided. The newspaper will expend considerable column space when Israel can potentially be blamed for the death of a Palestinian. Yet the systemic torture and repression that Palestinians endure at the hands of their own rulers is widely ignored.
The Washington Post's World Views column has found a problem with the Abraham Accords, the normalization agreements between Israel and several Muslim majority nations. The agreements, Post World Views columnist Ishaan Tharoor says, make Palestinian statehood less likely. Yet, the blame belongs with Palestinian leadership alone.
The Washington Post's World View column provides disproportionate, and often misleading, analysis on Israel, much of which castigates the Jewish state for supposedly repressing Palestinians. But when the Palestinian Authority imprisons, tortures, and murders its own people, including journalists, the Post's World Views columnist is silent.
The Washington Post has a problem. The newspaper's bias against the Jewish state is not only getting worse, it is getting harder to deny. Indeed, it's even becoming a joke to other journalists.
In a span of twenty-four hours the Washington Post published two deeply misleading reports that were heavy on omissions and light on facts and context. The newspaper promoted questionable polls and an anti-Israel pundit to subtly push for the annihilation of the Jewish state.
A Jan. 12, 2021 Washington Post report slanders Israel. Post World Views columnist Ishaan Tharoor willfully misrepresents the COVID-19 vaccination situation among Israelis and Palestinians. Tharoor omits key facts, ignores relevant reports and documents, and twists words.
The Washington Post's arguments against the recent peace deals between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, known as the Abraham Accords, are nonsensical at best. The Post's opinion section turns logic on its head for partisan purposes.
Peter Beinart's proposal for a "bi-national solution" to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been hailed as novel and thought provoking by some in the press. But as CAMERA noted in The Jerusalem Post, such proposals have a long history.
