In response to communication from CAMERA, Voice of America deletes a video which grossly overstated the number of refugees in the Gaza Strip suffering from poverty and unemployment. The June 12 VOA Extremism Watch video cited five million refugees facing these difficulties, more than double the territory's entire population.
CAMERA prompts correction of a series of Associated Press photo captions which absurdly misidentified the Gaza Strip as the "world's largest Muslim nation." With less than 2 million Muslims, the tiny territory is home to a tiny percentage of the world's 1.7 billion Muslims. Even Germany's Muslim population is more than double Gaza's.
The Associated Press conceals that Israel has fully withdrawn from the Gaza Strip, writing that Palestinians "seek" the territory as part of their future state and ignoring the withdrawal of every soldier and citizen from the territory, now in Hamas hands.
CAMERA prompts correction after Haaretz wrongly reported that Palestinians wishing to enter and exit the territory via Egypt require Israeli approval.
CAMERA secured a correction to Muhammad Shehada's false claim that Israel bans common disinfectants from entering the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.
A grossly misleading article at the London-based Phramafile.com blamed Israel for Gaza’s COVID-19 healthcare problems. It was largely based on, or cribbed from, a propaganda piece on an anti-Semitic website.
An April 15, 2020 Washington Post op-ed incorrectly claimed that Israel prevents medical supplies from reaching Gaza. CAMERA prompted the Post to correct, but the op-ed itself is littered with problems.
Contributing columnist Muhammad Shehada also continues to misrepresent his own sources.
A March 30, 2020 Foreign Policy op-ed holds Israel responsible for the threat that the COVID-19 pandemic poses to Palestinians. In order to do so, the commentary omits crucial facts and context, while depriving Palestinian leaders of responsibility.
During the time of a global pandemic, Israel, like other countries, is taking drastic action. The world is changing — fast. Regrettably those who seek to single out the Jewish state, including those at the Washington Post, aren’t.
