Multiple secondary media outlets publish an AP story accompanied by a headline that states as fact that "Israeli warplanes strike Syria, kill 4, including children," though the claim in Syria's state media is disputed and unverified. AP's own headline attributes the claim to Syrian state media, qualifying the allegation as just that.
NBC, AFP, and the publicly-funded NPR all amplified the bogus “Jewish supremacy” charge that is reminiscent of David Duke's writing.
Writing in Foreign Policy magazine, British historian Avi Shlaim faults both Israel and the United States for the failure to achieve a Palestinian state. Shlaim asserts that U.S. must pressure the Jewish state in order to achieve peace. But, as CAMERA tells JNS readers, the historian's reading of history is both selective and disingenuous.
Are media reports elevating B'Tselem to Israel's "leading human rights organization" justified? Human rights advancements are won in the legal realm, but B'Tselem does not engage in legal activity, and has accomplished no rights advancements for Palestinians. Its successes are in the international media, not human rights.
In English (but not French), AFP falsely reports that Israeli Public Minister Amir Ohana "said Palestinian prisoners would be the last to get inoculated" with the coronavirus vaccine. In fact, the minister's statement late last month was that prison staff would be vaccinated at that time, but not prisoners.
NPR's Daniel Estrin grossly misleads, falsely suggesting that Israel withheld the coronavirus vaccine from Palestinian prisoners even as other prisoners received the jab. In fact, Palestinian prisoners have been in the exact same position as other prisoners with respect to access to the vaccine.
The invocation by B’Tselem of the term “supremacy” seems designed to latch on to trends in American politics. In fact, however, the language of “Jewish supremacy” recalls the title of David Duke’s 2002 book.
Signers of a Guardian letter about antisemitism had previously accused Jews of dual loyalty; of using their control over the media and banks to manipulate others; of “whining” about the Holocaust and pedaling “fairy tales” about the Final Solution; and of being part of a “pampered religion.”
The Washington Post's obituary of Sheldon Adelson defames the the billionaire pro-Israel philanthropist, portraying him as sitting comfortably while, a few miles away, Palestinian "protesters" were wantonly slaughtered by Israel. In fact many of those "protesters" were terrorists taking part in a Hamas-orchestrated operation. The terror groups themselves admitted their involvement, even if the Washington Post won't.
The 2014 kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens are indelibly seared into the nation's collective memory, so why does Haaretz's English edition repeatedly misreport basic facts about the victims? The paper had previously corrected after calling the young civilians "soldiers."
