No, those cross-border Hamas tunnels into Israel aren't for "smuggling." Sébastien Roblin, a reporter specializing in international affairs, security and military history, also significantly overstates the territory's unemployment rate.
CAMERA has called on NPR to acknowledge Hamas’s arson attacks in the headline, to amend as passage suggesting uncertainty about the purpose of the Israeli counterstrikes, and to correct a straightforward chronological error that wrongly claims the arson attacks were a response to an earlier march.
CAMERA prompt corrections at Deutsche Welle, in both English and German, of an article which erroneously stated that many Hamas members, including senior leader Ismail Haniyeh, accept the two-state solution. The position of Haniyeh and Hamas is Palestine "from the river to the sea," meaning no Israel.
