Hamas' targeting of Jewish civilians is part and parcel of its mission — as set out in its governing Covenant or Charter — to "fight the Jews and kill them and to replace Israel with an Islamic state. According to the Charter, any type of peace negotiation and diplomatic end to the conflict "stand in contradiction to the principles of the Islamic Resistance Movement."
AFP's coverage of three Gaza fisherman killed in an explosion Sunday strikingly omits multiple indications originating from the Palestinian side that a misfired Hamas rocket was responsible for the fatalities.
Not for the first time, Hamas has stated it would accept a state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip—from which it would continue its struggle against Israel's existence. And not for the first time, a news organization wrongly announced that Hamas has accepted the "two-state solution."
The Washington Post's obituary of Sheldon Adelson defames the the billionaire pro-Israel philanthropist, portraying him as sitting comfortably while, a few miles away, Palestinian "protesters" were wantonly slaughtered by Israel. In fact many of those "protesters" were terrorists taking part in a Hamas-orchestrated operation. The terror groups themselves admitted their involvement, even if the Washington Post won't.
Haaretz's Jack Khoury falsely claims that in the last decade Hamas has accepted the two state solution, to be achieved by nonviolent means. Contrary to his report, the joint Hamas-Fatah press conference isn't an indication of the terror group's moderation; rather it's a sign of Fatah's embrace of violence.
The New York Times was slow to report on Hamas's arrest of a Palestinian bridge-building activist. Don't expect the newspaper to note that a former Amnesty International employee urged the terror group to arrest him.
Contributing columnist Muhammad Shehada also continues to misrepresent his own sources.
A recent Washington Post report on deteriorating conditions on Gaza relied on anti-Israel organizations. Worse still, The Post failed to place guilt where it belongs: with Hamas, the genocidal terrorist group that rules the Gaza Strip.
It is common for anti-Israel academics and media commentators to claim that Israel "created" Hamas. Yet, as CAMERA highlighted in a Jerusalem Post op-ed, the terror group's origins predate the reestablishment of Israel. And the rise of Hamas is far more complex.
While hundreds of rockets were being launched from Gaza at Israelis, several Washington Post dispatches showcased what is wrong with the newspaper’s reporting on the Jewish state.
A series of Agence France-Presse photo captions erase the crimes of Bassam al-Sayeh, convicted for his role in the 2015 murders of Rabbi Eitam and Naama Henkin. The captions, released in the wake of al-Sayeh's death, also ignore that he died from cancer, falsely implying that prison conditions were at fault.
