When is a presidential warning about Iran's nuclear threat to destroy Israel not news? When is the chief executive's reiteration of American criticism of Palestinian Arab leadership and support for Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's Gaza Strip withdrawal proposal similarly not newsworthy? When The Washington Post covers a speech by George W. Bush to the National Newspaper Association.
A group of American Christian leaders who met with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad downplayed Iran's nuclear ambitions and failed to condemn the president's Holocaust denial.
Holocaust denial is given an air of respectability in an International Herald Tribune "news" report on the Iranian Holocaust denial conference which fails to assert the lunacy of the "theories" being debated.
The Detroit News carried an op-ed by Mohammad Elahi, Imam of a large mosque in Dearborn Heights, that defends and attempts to justify Iranian President Ahmedinejad's call to wipe out Israel. Imam Elahi's column is laced with outright falsehoods and unsubstantiated accusations against Israel and compares the Iranian President's words to the American Declaration of Independence.
Washington Post coverage of the allegation that a Pentagon official passed secret U.S. information about Iran to Israel via American pro-Israel lobbyists contains a striking omission. It's one CAMERA has pointed out before regarding Post coverage touching on Iran's alleged nuclear weapons program.
