Kai Bird’s very positive new biography of Jimmy Carter unfortunately perpetuates a blatant lie the former president has been telling for more than 40 years – that Israeli PM Menachem Begin broke his Camp David promise of an open-ended settlement freeze. In fact Begin had promised, and delivered, a three month freeze, and Carter knows this.
When Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez withdrew her vote against helping Israel replenish its anti-missile defense system, the New York Times framed the story as a clash between principles and powerful "rabbis."
By rewriting history and erasing inconvenient events, NPR tells a tall tale of Palestinian leaders behaving responsibly after September 11, and of Israel being responsible for Palestinian suicide bombing attacks on Israeli civilians
In the latest blow to The Times' expired identity, the former Paper of Record refuses to set the facts straight on Jewish sovereignty in ancient Israel. The longest period of Jewish rule extended beyond three centuries, not 80 years.
On Monday, Aug. 30, 2021, Rick Wiles declared that Israel was responsible for the death of Christians at the hands of ISIS in Afghanistan and were trying to start a world war.

Maya Zinshtein and Abraham (Abie) haven’t said a word publicly about the well-documented problems with their film. They haven’t admitted to the allegations. They haven’t denied them. They haven’t even tried the old defense that the quotes were fake, but accurate. They’ve said nothing. Not one word. And the people in the documentary filmmaking community have let them get away with it. No one in this community has called them to task — at least not publicly.
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 Boston Globe's Abdullah Fayyad misrepresents the facts of the Sheikh Jarrah property dispute to weave a false narrative of Israeli ethnic cleansing and apartheid.
