The United Nations reportedly funds ANERA, but that doesn't deter Hani Almadhoun, the NGO's director of donor development, from completely disregarding or misusing UN Gaza data on everything from truck crossings to reconstruction.
An Associated Press article yesterday stated that vandals destroyed the fuel terminal at Israel's only cargo crossing into Gaza, initially leaving out that the culprits were Gazans, reportedly acting on Hamas instructions. AP responds positively to CAMERA's request to identify those responsible as Palestinian.
As Palestinians in Gaza, backed by Hamas and other Palestinian terror groups, continue to riot, and Israeli soldiers struggle to keep the demonstrators from the country’s borders, media coverage has often failed to accurately report on the clashes.
Diana Buttu, who in the past infamously fabricated that Palestinian rockets have no explosive warheads, now falsely asserts that Israel's border fence with Gaza is electrified.
An Op-Ed in The Algemeiner describes how the New York Times is at it again -- with its formulaic blaming of Israel, this time for Israel's attempt to defend itself from the Hamas-orchestrated "March of Return".
After the New York Times initially cast the Palestinian demonstrations and clashes as being a protest against Israel's naval blockade, the updated story correctly notes that it also is meant to demand a so-called "right of return."
As The Los Angeles Times promises truth, accuracy and quality journalism, CAMERA calls on editors to either substantiate or retract the dubious claim that the flow of water into Gaza is facing increasingly severe restrictions.
The New York Times claimed that the Gaza Strip "has been racked by shortages of medicine and water after years of a blockade by Israel and Egypt." In fact, the West Bank-based Palestinian government is responsible for a scarcity in medicine, and overpumping from Gaza's aquifer has degraded the territory's water supply.
The Gaza Strip is ruled by a terror organization that has attacked Gaza's border crossings, violently seized absolute power, and built attack tunnels into Israel. Still, the amount of goods Israel transfers into the territory has exponentially increased. All this information, and more, is missing from Viceland's program on Gaza's tunnels.
According to the UN, more than 40,000 truckloads of construction material have crossed from Israel to the Gaza Strip since June 2010. So why are many media outlets reporting that Israel this week lifted a five-year ban?
