A story in today’s New York Times refers to Hamas rocket fire into Israel and its imprisonment of two Israelis. But reporter David Halbfinger avoids telling readers that these are both violations of international law.
A month after amending photo captions which had cited hundreds of Palestinian rockets "allegedly" fired at Israel, the German Deutsche Presse-Agentur (DPA) wire service dismisses incendiary devices launched by Palestinians in Gaza as "so-called" burning balloons, as if they're not actually just that.
The AP declines to correct a false headline that sick Gaza girl "dies alone." The article itself contradicts the headline, accurately reporting that Aisha a-Lulu died after returning to the Gaza Strip following unsuccessful treatment in Jerusalem.
John B. Quigley, Ohio State University law Professor, has a career-long record of vilifying the Jewish state. This includes speech making to anti-Israel propaganda groups as well as various writings.
Why does the New York Times want its readers to wrongly believe that Palestinian gunmen and bombers struck down while engaged in combat were killed while merely "demonstrating"?
Media reporting on Gaza has missed a crucial element: the extraordinary steps that the Israeli Defense Forces took to minimize casualties. The IDF's innovative methods and selective targeting is a story unto itself.
One day after the Israeli army blamed exploded Palestinian ordinance as responsible for the death of the Abu Arar baby and her aunt, Haaretz's English print edition carried only Hamas' side of the story. The Hebrew print edition, in contrast, reported the army's denial at length.
"Resistance." "Stray rockets." "Palestinian impatience." Another day, another example of the New York Times soft-gloving anti-Israel terror groups.
Deutsche Welle's report on an Israeli airstrike which hit the Gaza offices of a Turkish news agency failed to note that the targets were Hamas offices housed in the same building. CAMERA called on the German outlet to include the information, and editors commendably did so.
CAMERA prompts correction of numerous Deutsche Presse-Agentur photo captions today which erroneously referred to hundreds of rocket attacks on Israel as "alleged," as if it wasn't yet certain that Gaza terrorists have carried out hundreds of these attacks since yesterday morning.
