For more than forty years, press and policymakers have been misreading the Islamic Republic of Iran. In four decades, The Washington Post, for example, has gone from comparing regime founder Ayatollah Khomeini to Gandhi, to presenting a regime apparatchik and 9/11 truther as a "moderate."
The rise in antisemitism is troubling. So is the media's growing tendency to politicize, obfuscate, omit—and even perpetuate—antisemitic tropes.
The Washington Post used an obituary for former Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Arens to belittle the current prime minister of Israel. The obituary displayed the newspaper's anti-Netanyahu zeal and its inability to present readers with the full story.
Journalists and policymakers often write of "the Arab street" as if it were a monolith. Yet, by overstating the impact that close ties with Israel would have on relations with Arab nations, generations of policymakers and pundits have been getting "the street" wrong.
Journalists habitually describe the U.N.'s anti-Israel animus as "perceived," or merely the view of "Israel and its supporters." But as CAMERA demonstrates in this Fox News Op-Ed, the United Nations has long been biased against the Jewish state; it's a fact, not an opinion.
Marc Lamont Hill's recent U.N. speech calling for the elimination of Israel should come as no surprise; despite efforts by the media to muddy the waters, both Hill and the U.N. committee he was addressing have a long history of opposing Jewish self-determination.
Hezbollah, the Lebanese-based, Iranian-backed terror group, is set to control Lebanon’s Ministry of Public Health. Although Lebanon is ostensibly a U.S. ally—and a major recipient of U.S. aid—the fact that a terrorist group is about to control a major governmental post has received little to no coverage from the Western press.
The press has largely ignored an Oct. 29, 2018 report by the Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS), which highlighted new documentation seized by Israel from Tehran’s “nuclear archive” which “indicates that Iran’s nuclear weaponization efforts did not stop after 2003.” That report upends a long-standing media narrative.
Although Western press outlets and policymakers often discuss the Quds Force’s role as a purveyor of terrorism, less known is the pivotal role that the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) played in creating the IRGC. Today’s IRGC is a beneficiary of what was arguably the preeminent terrorist organization of the 1970s: the PLO
The Washington Post continues to obfuscate on the goals of the anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) effort. The Post hides the real agenda of BDS and omits the movement's ties to terrorist-linked entities. In so doing, the newspaper violates its own stated standards and policies.
