Human Rights Watch has just published a report charging that Israeli strikes in Gaza during the May fighting included significant war crimes. Too bad that the first case it cites, a bombing in Beit Hanoun, was actually due to an errant Palestinian rocket.
The ABC has published an article about Human Rights Watch’s latest anti-Israel report that is even more biased than the HRW report itself.
In July so far, NPR aired at least three problematic reports, that shared a common thread – omitting context and hearing from anti-Israel activists to blame Israel for dispossessing and discriminating against Palestinians and stirring conflict. It was a throwback to the NPR of the past.

The Washington Post’s omissions are curiously one-sided. They favor antisemites in Congress, anti-Israel NGOs and multilateral bodies, as well as terrorist groups committed to the destruction of the world’s sole Jewish state.
When misfired Palestinian rockets killed Palestinians, the New York Times repeatedly told readers Israeli rockets were responsible. Editors refused to correct the errors.
The venerable, American popular science magazine has become the latest venue for anti-Israel defamation. Why would editors cast aside the scientific tradition of fact-based inquiry in order to present pro-terrorist propaganda and the promotion of BDS in the guise of an analytic article?

Are Hamas casualty figures are trustworthy? Are both sides guilty of war crimes? Is there nowhere in Gaza from where to launch rockets without endangering civilians? Is Tel Aviv a human shield?
