CAMERA prompts a Haaretz clarification after the English edition stated as fact that Israeli Arabs convicted of violent assaults during May 2021 riots received "disproportionate punishments," as opposed to attributing that claim to demonstrators, as the Hebrew edition rightly did.
The New York Times recently hired someone who insisted that the killing of a Hamas commander during the 2021 Hamas war an Israeli "murder." She is expected to fit in well at a newspaper that has cultivated its anti-Israel bias.

The Ramadan jihad of 2021 was a violent campaign that was planned well before Ramadan and evolved into a full Hamas war with Israel that extended beyond the period of Ramadan. That war, in turn, became a tool to demonize Israel in the latest round of a hostile propaganda campaign whose goal is the delegitimization and eradication of the Jewish State.
With "Generation Gaza: The Young Have Pride Despite Privations," Janine di Giovanni proves that neither age nor time spent in the field dictates journalistic mastery. Antipathy can be a much more compelling influence.

Human Rights Watch has just published a report charging that Israeli strikes in Gaza during the May fighting included significant war crimes. Too bad that the first case it cites, a bombing in Beit Hanoun, was actually due to an errant Palestinian rocket.
