The media is focusing much attention on Yasir Arafat's legacy. Many of the historical briefs and timelines being published whitewash his decades-long involvement in terrorism. Below is a timeline of some of the key events and terrorist acts associated with Arafat.
It is common for many pundits to assume that the U.S.-Israel security relationship dates back to the founding of the Jewish state. But as CAMERA wrote in The National Interest, it wasn't until September 1970 that the modern U.S.-Israel alliance was born.
The Washington Post is not living up to its own guidelines and standards. Its opinion pages—meant to be a place for honest debate—are increasingly a forum for anti-Israel falsehoods—and antisemitism.
A June 28, 2020 news report by the North Jersey Record was littered with distortions and omissions. CAMERA took to the paper's pages to note that Palestinians have a long and documented history of rejecting offers for a sovereign Palestinian Arab state if it requires living in peace next to a Jewish one.
An NJ Record news report reads more like a press release from American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), an anti-Israel group. The Record distorts facts, omits relevant history, and uncritically quotes organizations whose members have repeated antisemitic statements.
The Palestinian Authority is likely covering up evidence of its complicity in supporting terrorist attacks against Israelis. Yet, many major U.S. media outlets are ignoring the PA's suspicious decision to shred papers—and the history that suggests what the Authority is up to, and why.
In a nearly 1,000-word op-ed railing against 'annexation,' the Washington Post's Ishaan Tharoor omits key facts and history about Israel, international law and the so-called 'peace process.'
Foreign Policy magazine claims “one reason the Palestinians swiftly rejected the flawed U.S. peace plan was that it does nothing to address their claims for water rights.” But there's no evidence to suggest that this is the case, and plenty of evidence to suggest otherwise.
It doesn’t take a heart surgeon to figure out why there isn’t peace between Israelis and Palestinians. But the Washington Post seems to think otherwise.
It has become common to hear that the U.S. government has always had an unwavering “pro-Israel bias.” But as CAMERA noted in The Jerusalem Post, history is never as simple, or as neat, as common narratives suppose.
There's a problem with the latest peace plan that the media is omitting: Palestinian rejectionism. As CAMERA noted in a Jan. 28, 2020 Daily Caller op-ed, Palestinian leaders have rejected numerous proposals for peace and statehood.
