When the Israeli army disputed Hamas' account which blamed Israel for the death of 12-year-old Shady Abdel-Aal, AP rose to the journalistic challenge with accurate coverage. Reuters responsibly corrected when presented with information contradicting Hamas. AFP, in contrast, has yet to correct even as Hamas itself has backtracked.
CAMERA takes to the pages of The Washington Post to address the paper's coverage of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA). CAMERA tells the paper's readers about UNRWA's politicized definition of "refugee" and the organization's documented links to terror groups.
Lutheran leaders and peacemakers, including Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton have a tough time mentioning Hamas's misdeeds in their public statements about the suffering in Gaza.
In several recent reports, Foreign Policy omits UNRWA’s history of promoting anti-Jewish violence and Palestinian rejectionism. Foreign Policy minimizes issues with the U.N. agency and unfairly stereotypes those seeking to reform aid to Palestinians.
CAMERA prompts correction of a Los Angeles Times article which erroneously stated that Gazans launched "dozens" of flaming kites and balloons at Israel since March 30. In fact, Palestinian arsonists have launched dozens of incendiary attacks on a daily basis.
In their recent reports, both Foreign Policy Magazine and The Washington Post omit UNRWA’s ties to terror groups and promotion of anti-Jewish violence. UNRWA, as CAMERA highlighted in a recent Op-Ed, has a long and sordid history—and the media should report it, not cover it up.
Palestinian rulers oppressing and brutalizing their own people seldom make the front page. The reason is simple: The media is often uninterested in reporting on Palestinian affairs unless Israel can be blamed.
The Washington Post minimizes—and often fails to report—Palestinian anti-Jewish violence. The paper has increasingly underplayed threats facing the Jewish state.
Politico uses questionable sources and a false narrative to attack the U.S. Ambassador to Israel and U.S.-Israeli relations.
Hundreds of Palestinians are taking to the streets to protest the PA's sanctions against the Gaza Strip. Yet, many news outlets are failing to provide coverage.
