After reporting yesterday that "Iran has never threatened to attack Israel," the Associated Press' unfortunate clarification today casts those very threats as a matter of Israeli perception, as opposed to reality.
Media coverage of the delayed transfer of tons of mail sent to West Bank Palestinians doesn't deliver the full story, omitting crucial details along with relevant context and erasing nuance.
CAMERA's Israel office has prompted multiple media outlets, including Agence France Presse, Flash 90 (an Israeli photo service), and Times of Israel, to amend captions which had falsely characterized serial arsonists from Gaza as "activists."
Journalists keep treating Hamas claims with undue credibility—missing the terror group’s motives and history.
CAMERA asks that IVP in both the U.S. and U.K. do a better job of fact-checking when publishing books about Israel, the Arab-Israeli conflict, and the Holy Land. Books that IVP in the U.S. and the U.K. have published about the Holy Land have been marred by errors, omissions, and historical distortions that invariably portray Israel in an unfairly harsh light. Problems in Palestinian society that hinder the prospects of peace in the Holy Land are, for the most part, taboo subjects in IVP books.
NBC's Ayman Moyheldin clarifies after misleadingly tweeting that in Israel, "interfaith civil marriage is not allowed." But given the lack of separation of religion and state in Israel, civil marriage is not an option for any couple, including those of the same faith.
The Washington Post's arguments against the recent peace deals between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, known as the Abraham Accords, are nonsensical at best. The Post's opinion section turns logic on its head for partisan purposes.
CAMERA prompts correction of a Reuters article which erroneously reported Israel's current unemployment rate as higher than 20 percent. The actual figure is 12 percent.
As anyone with a passing familiarity with the region knows, there have been no Israeli settlements in Gaza since 2005.
In response to communication from CAMERA, UPI promptly corrects an article which reported that wanted Palestinian Marwan Abusrour is believed to be residing in his "native countr[y,] "Palestine," referring to the Palestinian Authority.
CAMERA prompts correction after The New York Times misreported that the Israeli NGO Yesh Din found that of over 1200 investigations of violence allegedly perpetrated by Israelis against Palestinians, only 8 percent resulted in indictments. In fact, Yesh Din's investigation covered a wide variety of offenses, only 36 percent of which (less than 470 incidents) involved violence.
For weeks while communities in Israel burned, many major U.S. news outlets kept silent. As CAMERA tells JNS, Gaza-based terror groups have been launching incendiary devices into southern Israel, resulting in major damage. Yet, mainstream Western media has failed to provide meaningful coverage.
The more Israel and Gulf states advance in the historic process of normalization, the more The Los Angeles Times struggles to shoehorn the expanding ties into the narrow prism of old dogmas about Israeli-Palestinian relations. With Bahrain's readiness to recognize Israel, the Times is forced to retreat from earlier reporting that UAE stands alone.
The National Interest, which seeks to fashion "a new foreign policy consensus based on civil and enlightened contention," fails to correct after erroneously citing Tel Aviv as Israel's capital and mistakenly referring to the "return" of east Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza Strip to Palestinians.
