Catholic welfare association misinforms its supporters about Christian population in Israel.
The population of the last Christian town in the West Bank is hard to pin down.
Ha'aretz's Akiva Eldar falsely attributes an unsubstantiated, erroneous figure to the Israeli Ministry of Finance in his bogus report that the Israeli government has acknowledged that Jews are a minority between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea.
The Los Angeles Times publishes another Op-Ed calling for the dismantlement of the Jewish state. Jonathan Kuttab's piece makes ludicrous assumptions about the fate of a Jewish minority in a "binational state."
CAMERA's letter refuted familiar misinformation about Israel suppressing Arab population growth and housing construction in Jerusalem.
The letter asserts: "Your article 'Palestinians mull a majority' (Page 1, Feb. 27) notes, 'One group of Israeli researchers ... charge that the Palestinian census is riddled with mistakes.' However, it fails to explain why." The reasons are then listed.
A review of a book by Rashid Khalidi incorrectly claimed Jewish immigration increased during World War II. The newspaper subsequently ran a correction.

Twice within two weeks, newspapers have had to correct false statements by anti-Israel activist Mazin Qumsiyeh. These two corrections, along with the many other erroneous statements by Qumsiyeh which have passed uncorrected, reveal a disregard for facts that should be a red flag for those considering reading–or publishing–his diatribes.

Mazin Qumsiyeh's July 27 New Haven Register op-ed contained highly distorted and unsubstantiated accusations against Israel. While many of the accusations were of a general nature, Qumsiyeh did make some specific allegations which are demonstrably false.
