The Washington Post is unwilling to provide readers with the facts about the anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement. Worse still, the paper takes claims by BDS supporters like Omar Shakir and his employer, Human Rights Watch, at face value.
A Washington Post headline asserts that Israel has a 'double standard' for policing in its Arab communities. But details in the newspaper's own report refute this claim.
The Washington Post gives a platform to the small number of Jewish organizations that are anti-Zionist, treating them as somehow representative of the majority of Jewry. They're not.
The Washington Post and others play defense for U.S. Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, running puff-pieces while omitting their association with antisemitic organizations.
When it comes to Israel, The Washington Post seems incapable of reporting the whole truth. The newspaper's selective reporting and pattern of omissions are a telltale sign of its bias.
In the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, certain claims are often parroted by the media. Chief among them: Fatah, the movement that dominates the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and the Palestinian Authority (PA), is “secular” and “moderate.” However, Fatah's Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade, a U.S.-designated terror group, proves otherwise.
The Washington Post's offered extensive, and often misleading, coverage of Israel's elections. Post reporters and op-eds portrayed Israeli PM Bibi Netanyahu as the obstacle to peace, while completely omitting the responsibility of Palestinian leadership.
The Washington Post uses unattributed Palestinian officials and shady NGOs as sources in a lengthy report on an archaeological dig in Jerusalem.
The Washington Post highlights abuses by the Palestinian Authority and Hamas. However, the paper's coverage of the topic is belated and seemingly spurred by its reliance on an anti-Israel NGO. Other draconian measures by Palestinian officials, such as their imprisonment and threats towards Palestinians who sell or rent land to Jews, are omitted by The Post.
The Washington Post continues to obfuscate on the goals of the anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) effort. The Post hides the real agenda of BDS and omits the movement's ties to terrorist-linked entities. In so doing, the newspaper violates its own stated standards and policies.
