The Washington Post continues to omit UNRWA's links to terrorist organizations and its promotion of anti-Jewish violence. The paper's coverage of UNRWA obfuscates and minimizes the truth about the organization.
Mahmoud Abbas, the head of the Palestinian Authority (PA), the entity that rules the West Bank (Judea and Samaria) has been appointed to lead a terrorist organization. But as CAMERA noted in a Washington Jewish Week Op-Ed, the media has stayed silent about the purported "peace partner's" new job.
CAMERA takes to the pages of The Washington Post to address the paper's coverage of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA). CAMERA tells the paper's readers about UNRWA's politicized definition of "refugee" and the organization's documented links to terror groups.
In several recent reports, Foreign Policy omits UNRWA’s history of promoting anti-Jewish violence and Palestinian rejectionism. Foreign Policy minimizes issues with the U.N. agency and unfairly stereotypes those seeking to reform aid to Palestinians.
In their recent reports, both Foreign Policy Magazine and The Washington Post omit UNRWA’s ties to terror groups and promotion of anti-Jewish violence. UNRWA, as CAMERA highlighted in a recent Op-Ed, has a long and sordid history—and the media should report it, not cover it up.
Palestinian rulers oppressing and brutalizing their own people seldom make the front page. The reason is simple: The media is often uninterested in reporting on Palestinian affairs unless Israel can be blamed.
Politico uses questionable sources and a false narrative to attack the U.S. Ambassador to Israel and U.S.-Israeli relations.
The Washington Post flogs Hamas claims and implicitly blames Israel for the terror attacks launched against it.
The Palestinian Authority pays terrorists and their families for their crimes—a fact that The Washington Post's "Fact Checker" does it's best to minimize and obfuscate.
Readers told that the United States and Israel cut off money transfers to the Palestinian Authority would be forgiven for believing that the United States and Israel are not transferring money to the Palestinian Authority. But they would be wrong. (See update noting WSJ correction.)
