Diaa Hadid, hired a year ago by the New York Times to improve coverage of Palestinian affairs, instead seems to view her job as escalating the Times' traditionally hostile and inaccurate coverage of Israel. The latest example is her largely fictional story on evictions in Jerusalem.
After CAMERA contacted Wall Street Journal editors, the newspaper corrected misleading language that omitted the role of the Temple Mount in Judaism, even while describing the site as sacred to Christians and Muslims.
Though Agence France Presse's revision of an article yesterday was small — it involved just three letters — its significance was much greater. In response to communication from CAMERA, AFP clarifies that the Temple Mount is Judaism's holiest site.
CAMERA prompts correction of an Agence France Presse wire service article which incorrectly identified Tel Aviv as a capital city. By correcting news agency errors the day they appear, CAMERA prevents misinformation from spreading to media outlets globally.
CAMERA prompts a critical New York Times editor's note today on Diaa Hadid's error-ridden Jan. 15 article about potential evictions in Jerusalem's Old City. Editors agreed that Hadid relied solely on false Palestinian claims.
We recently criticized a New York Times article by Diaa Hadid about evictions in Jerualem.We now have the details on the other two evictions Hadid focused on, which she alleged were based on "arcane violations" of lease agreements. Is non-payment of rent now "arcane?"
The New York Times' Diaa Hadid is at it again — promoting a Palestinian narrative where the Temple Mount has religious significance only to Muslims, where Palestinian terrorism is understated and Israeli actions blamed for the turmoil in the region. Updated with information about CAMERA success.
CAMERA prompts correction of AFP captions which misidentified the holiest sites in two major religions. The Al-Aqsa mosque is the third holiest site in Islam, not the most sacred. The Temple Mount, not the Western Wall, is Judaism's most sacred site.
After CAMERA informed editors that the newspaper incorrectly characterized the Western Wall, and not the Temple Mount, as the holiest site in Judaism, the newspaper published a correction.
After deadly Palestinian attacks against Israelis triggered by false claims that Israel is threatening the al-Aqsa Mosque, the New York Times published a mostly mangled history of the situation and of the Temple Mount, relying in part on an "expert" who is also an outspoken supporter of boycotting Israel.
