The anti-Jewish bigotry that characterizes the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement has become even more apparent as BDS leaders and members seize upon the Covid-19 pandemic to fuel anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism with libels against Jews and the Jewish state. CAMERA’s backgrounder documents the fundamental anti-Jewish nature of this movement and how it has become a haven for anti-Semites to indulge their racism.
Blood libels are nurtured by hatred and weakened by exposure. In the second of our "Blood Libel" articles, we take a closer look at how Palestinian and BDS activists, in particular, have used the pandemic to libel and incite against Israel.
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.
The fashion magazine called Mallory “one of the most vital activists of her generation” in a feature interview, and called Davis a “straight-up legend.”

When legitimate grievances are co-opted and hijacked by opportunists seeking support for their own causes — under the guise of intersectionality — problems will inevitably arise. The exploiting of George Floyd's death to demonize Israel is based on JVP's anti-Semitic "Deadly Exchange" campaign. It's clear that despite the pretense of interest in African-American causes, its real goal is just to delegitimize the Jewish state.
CAMERA prompts improvement of a JTA article which had whitewashed Glenn Greenwald's antisemitic rhetoric, stating only that he "has openly criticized Israel and its political leadership." In fact, he also repeatedly peddled antisemitic tropes, targeting American Jews.
CAMERA researchers Tricia Miller, Ph.D. and Dexter Van Zile recently spoke at the National Religious Broadcasters Convention. They spoke at Media Summit organized by Proclaiming Justice to the Nations led by Laurie Cardoza-Moore.
Antisemitism is both increasing and increasingly mainstreamed. From the halls of Congress to the newsrooms of The Washington Post, our institutions are showing that they aren’t up to the task of confronting it. Indeed, as CAMERA has documented: they're part of the problem.
Following contact from CAMERA, The Hill quickly changed a photograph of visibly Jewish men and children that accompanied an article and tweet about the coronavirus.
