Reuters reported that legislation stalled in the Senate had a measure "to punish Americans who boycott Israel." The bill narrowly applied only to companies -- not private individuals -- engaged in inter-state or international boycott activity.
Jonathan Weisman, the deputy Washington editor of the New York Times, stumbles on the facts as he describes — or is it prescribes? — a rift between American and Israeli Jews. The New York Times is aware of the piece's factual errors, but they remain uncorrected.
C-SPAN recently aired a “discussion” hosted by National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations (NCUSAR), an Arab centered organization hostile to Israel. This hostility was reflected in the choice of panelists.
It is not news that author Alice Walker is a longstanding anti-Israel activist, that she frequently crosses the line into outright anti-Semitism, and that she promotes the theories of flagrant, anti-Jewish racist David Icke. Yet it is Alice Walker whom the NY Times featured in a book column, dutifully relaying her recommendation of Icke’s anti-Semitic book without any qualification or disclaimer.

Marc Lamont Hill's recent U.N. speech calling for the elimination of Israel should come as no surprise; despite efforts by the media to muddy the waters, both Hill and the U.N. committee he was addressing have a long history of opposing Jewish self-determination.
Marc Lamont Hill called for violent resistance. He called for a Palestine to exist instead of, and not alongside, Israel. He called for policies that would upend Israel’s demographic balance and disempower the Jews. Why are so many of his defenders gaslighting Hill's critics instead of defending the actual ideas promoted by the former CNN contributor?
C-SPAN recently aired conference discussions held in Washington D.C. by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). One of the discussions dealt with promoting the anti-Israel BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) movement.
Airbnb's claim that settlements are “at the core of the dispute between Israelis and Palestinians” reflects a lack of understanding of the history of the region and of the history of the conflict itself.

After asking how long would he continue as a political commentator on CNN, our question has been answered. The network has finally severed its ties with him.
