With Abbas' cancellation of elections on the pretext that Israel has not said it will permit voting in eastern Jerusalem, some reports mislead on Israel's Oslo-mandated responsibilities concerning Palestinian elections. As for Palestinian electoral responsibilities under Oslo, those simply aren't on the radar.
In January 2021, the Palestinian Authority announced that it would be holding elections for the first time in more than a decade. The announcement is part of the PA's strategy to appeal to a new U.S. administration. But amid underreported human rights abuses by the PA the move is already backfiring.
U.S. policymakers are contemplating restoring aid to the Palestinian Authority (PA), as well as "working to reopen" the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) office in Washington D.C. But as CAMERA wrote in a Jan. 21, 2021 Newsweek op-ed, Palestinian leaders continue to pay salaries to terrorists. Both press and policymakers alike should take note.
A recent Washington Post report implicitly faults Israel for the COVID-19 vaccination issues in the Palestinian Authority and Hamas ruled territories. But the Post fails to inform readers that both Hamas and the PA did not request vaccines from Israel--and that international agreements stipulate that the Authority itself is responsible for vaccines and healthcare.
The Associated Press (AP) and Reuters coverage of the Hanan Ashrawi resignation used by a multitude of media outlets large and small, merely echoed the resignation announcement and depicted her only in positive terms. Meanwhile CNN’s Amanpour even partnered with Ashrawi to defame Israel.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas just turned 85 years old. Increasingly autocratic, Abbas is in the fifteenth year of a single elected four-year term. As CAMERA told Newsweek, Abbas has no clear successor, and a crisis looms.
An Oct. 19, 2020 report by Foreign Policy magazine stands apart for its brazen adoption of an anti-Israel narrative. Key facts and relevant history are omitted, while the magazine chose to treat antisemites as reliable sources.
Several Palestinian NGOs, many reliant on foreign funding, have links to U.S.-designated terror groups. Yet, the Palestinian Authority is seeking to prevent these NGOs from signing anti-terror clauses. And the media is providing cover.
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.
A June 28, 2020 news report by the North Jersey Record was littered with distortions and omissions. CAMERA took to the paper's pages to note that Palestinians have a long and documented history of rejecting offers for a sovereign Palestinian Arab state if it requires living in peace next to a Jewish one.
