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.
Did a fictional film depicting Palestinians encountering a checkpoint inspire John Brennan, architect of the US drone program, to pen an essay marred by grave errors of omission? Or was it, as he suggested elsewhere, something about Jewish moral failures?
Human Rights Watch’s new report so full of errors and lies it is a disgrace, especially for an organization that claims – on the inside cover of the report – to “scrupulously investigate abuses” and “expose the facts widely.” For the abuses here were committed by Human Rights Watch, not by its habitual target Israel. It is time, at long last, for Human Rights watch to come clean and eliminate the hatred of Jews and Israel that are a cancer in the organization.

Anti-Zionists claim theirs is a political position rooted in progressive values and and that charges of anti-Semitism are cynical attempts to stifle their speech. Real anti-Semites, they say, are just white supremacists and neo-Nazis. It is interesting therefore to compare the language and rhetoric used by prominent anti-Zionist organizations, politicians, journalists and activists to the classic antisemitic tropes disseminated by Nazis in the prelude to and during the Holocaust.
Shehada portrays legal proceedings against Issa Amro as based on "nonviolent resistance," but Amro was convicted of assault.
The Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis (CAMERA) calls on Rev. Professor Ioan Sauca, interim general secretary of the World Council of Churches (WCC), to distance the WCC from the dishonest and incendiary remarks about Israel made by WCC’s Frank Chikane during a Feb. 6, 2021 webinar.
The term carries disturbing baggage from the Nazi era. The New Yorker has also uncritically adopted many of B'Tselem's other problematic and false claims.
