The Islamic Republic of Iran has called for the murder of America's former chief executive and chief diplomat, among other American citizens. Yet, many major media outlets couldn't be troubled to report Tehran's threats.
To fully appreciate the scope of Iran’s malign influence, the press must cover the criminal network that is the IRGC. The Quds Force engages in both thievery and terror, stealing from the Iranian people and others alike. And, as CAMERA tells the Algemeiner, oil smuggling is particularly lucrative and under reported.
Iran has been using its proxies to smuggle weapons into some of Israel's Arab communities. Tehran might be hoping to spark a civil war, but as CAMERA told the Washington Examiner, the Islamic Republic is likely to be disappointed.
The media engaged in a wholesale pitch to sell the Iran Deal in 2015. But as CAMERA notes in the Algemeiner, more than half a decade later many in the press still can't be troubled to accurately report the facts about Iran's nuclear weapons program or the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
The Islamic Republic of Iran has ramped up its terrorist attacks, using proxies to attack American soldiers in Syria, to target Israeli businessmen in Africa and to obstruct shipping lanes and global commerce. Yet, as CAMERA noted in the Washington Examiner, policymakers and the press have been slow to catch up.
The notion that former Iranian diplomat Mohammad Jafar Mahallati remained ignorant of mass killings that took place in 1988 while at the UN is simply untenable in light of the evidence.
The Board of Trustees at Oberlin must be very proud — because the college has now given cover to a former Iranian diplomat who called for Israel’s destruction at the UN, and according to Amnesty International, worked to obscure a round of mass murders perpetrated in 1988. These days, the professor in question — Mohammad Jafar Mahallati — is preaching a message of “friendship” to his students at Oberlin, as if he never uttered the hateful things he said about Israel, or covered up mass murder.
CAMERA prompts improved coverage after Haaretz's article on Midhat Saleh, reportedly killed by Israeli gunfire, initially omitted the former Syrian MP's involvement in anti-Israel attacks and his alleged ties to Iran's Revolutionary Guards. AP, in contrast, has yet to amend.
U.S. Secretary of State Blinken's statement about "other options" with respect to Iran was big news. Media outlets covering the remarks all highlighted the scoop, with the glaring exception of Haaretz.
Writing in Foreign Affairs magazine, three esteemed former U.S. diplomats argue that Israel is pulling the U.S. toward a conflict with Iran. But history, the statements of Iranian leaders and a recent war between Israel and an Iranian proxy all prove that it is Tehran which already considers itself to be at war with both the U.S. and Israel.
