Last year, Ramadan anti-Israel incitement and violence — in the guise of a Jihad for Jerusalem — saw many in the mainstream media ignore the historic patterns of provocation by the Palestinian leadership and instead echo their pretexts blaming Israel. Media reporting this year follows the same pattern.
The New York Times twists and contorts in order to draw an equivalence between innocent Israeli Jews, Arabs, and Druze mowed down by terrorists and Palestinians killed while attacking Israeli soldiers.
"[W]e are not pursuing the individuals' names." The New York Times refuses to supply details for Palestinians it reported were killed last year in settler violence. There's nothing classified about any of information, so what exactly is the paper hiding?
CAMERA's video shows footage of Alareer's classroom incitement. As a result of our research and outreach to New York Times editors, the newspaper published an editors' note effectively retracting their piece on the bigoted bridge-builder.
CAMERA prompts correction of a New York Times story referring to the Western Wall as "the last remaining part of an ancient Jewish temple that was destroyed in antiquity." The wall was a retaining wall of the Temple Mount, not part of the Temple itself, and is one of many surviving remains of the complex.
The New York Times tells readers that Refaat Alareer, a professor who who incessantly dehumanizes "Zios" on Twitter, is a different man in the classroom, teaching students to appreciate Israeli poetry and, through, that, to humanize Israelis. This, though, is pure fiction. (Updated with information on newspaper's Editors' Note)
After CAMERA posts a critique and introduces the hashtag #SadSadIsrael, thousands of smiling Israelis ridicule a recent New York Times story about "what it means to be Israeli."
The New York Times promises to show readers what it means to be Israeli. Instead, it curates, conceals, and contrives an ugly land of darkness.
When misfired Palestinian rockets killed Palestinians, the New York Times repeatedly told readers Israeli rockets were responsible. Editors refused to correct the errors.
Patrick Kingsley, the British-born Jerusalem Bureau Chief for the New York Times, formerly reported for the Guardian, a paper not known for fidelity to the truth, especially when it comes to Israel. The recent disturbances and fighting in Israel and Gaza have been the perfect opportunity for Kingsley to peddle Guardian-style agitprop to a new set of readers. Kingsley repeats one Palestinian myth after another, and even interviews bigots and Holocaust deniers, giving them space to slander Israel.
