CAMERA Op-Eds and Letters

Seattle Post-Intelligencer Publishes CAMERA Op-Ed

After two opinion pieces in the Post-Intelligencer celebrated Seattle's hosting of a play about International Solidarity Movement (ISM) activist Rachel Corrie, a CAMERA guest column pointed out that the ISM's extremist ideology distorts understanding of the Middle East. The newspaper's summary of CAMERA's column reads: "Her death was tragic, but the group mentoring Corrie was geared toward more toward building hatred against Israel than toward forwarding peace."

CAMERA Op-Ed: Redford’s Poison

CAMERA Op-Ed: Euro-bias in Boston

The Boston Globe's H.D.S. Greenway, now retired from editorial posts at the paper, frequently devotes his weekly column to distorted hectoring of Israel. He inveighs against alleged Israeli faults, passes forgivingly over Palestinian rejectionism, and is often slippery with the facts.
