It doesn’t take a heart surgeon to figure out why there isn’t peace between Israelis and Palestinians. But the Washington Post seems to think otherwise.
It has become common to hear that the U.S. government has always had an unwavering “pro-Israel bias.” But as CAMERA noted in The Jerusalem Post, history is never as simple, or as neat, as common narratives suppose.
The Washington Post uncritically quotes the vice chairman of the Fatah movement for his thoughts on the Trump administration's peace plan. The problem? The Post fails to disclose that he's an unrepentant terrorist whose nickname is "Abu Jihad."
There's a problem with the latest peace plan that the media is omitting: Palestinian rejectionism. As CAMERA noted in a Jan. 28, 2020 Daily Caller op-ed, Palestinian leaders have rejected numerous proposals for peace and statehood.
The Palestinian Authority recently admitted that it won't abide by any international agreements that violate Islamic law or their "national values." Despite its significance, the media failed to cover the Authority's admission.
A recent Washington Post report on deteriorating conditions on Gaza relied on anti-Israel organizations. Worse still, The Post failed to place guilt where it belongs: with Hamas, the genocidal terrorist group that rules the Gaza Strip.
Iran has been threatening Americans, murdering soldiers and civilians and plotting terror against the U.S. for years. But as CAMERA noted in The Daily Wire, many news outlets have chosen to ignore or minimize the Islamic Republic's behavior and agenda.
It is common for anti-Israel academics and media commentators to claim that Israel "created" Hamas. Yet, as CAMERA highlighted in a Jerusalem Post op-ed, the terror group's origins predate the reestablishment of Israel. And the rise of Hamas is far more complex.
Major U.S. news outlets are not only disingenuously opposing efforts to combat antisemitism, they are actively covering for antisemites.
CAMERA rebuts a Washington Post op-ed by two former U.S. State Department officials that incorrectly asserts that settlements are the chief obstruction to peace between Israelis and Palestinians.
