On the 20th anniversary of the wave of the so-called Second Intifada, news outlets failed to inform readers of the horrors of the Palestinian terror campaign.
The Times' claim that Palestinian Tayseer Mleitat was killed by Israeli troops "at a protest" is a gross misrepresentation of information available in the paper's own archives: he was part of a crowd of hundreds which targeted soldiers with Molotov cocktails and rocks.
CAMERA took to the pages of Mosaic Magazine to note that the first “Palestinian intifada” wasn’t about a separate Arab “Palestinian state,” rather it was motivated by opposition to a shift in the status of Jewry.
Is it “normal” for elderly Holocaust survivors to be murdered while celebrating Passover? That’s what an Op-Ed in the New York Times appears to suggest.
PBS airs another one-sided film that reduces complex events into a simplistic morality tale of Palestinian heroes and Israeli villains. Like most other PBS films on the Arab-Israeli conflict, Naila and the Uprising conceals essential facts and presents a partisan version of events within a false framework.
A Newsweek feature insists the so-called "second intifada" was triggered by Israel recapturing Palestinian cities in the West Bank. That's like saying the attack on Pearl Harbor was triggered by the allied invasion of Normandy.
ames Zogby accuses Israel's supporters of clinging to myths. But the examples he uses demonstrate that it is he who refuses to confront reality.
A lopsided AFP timeline outlining 20 years since the Oslo Accords recounts Israel's counter-terrorism actions while completely ignoring the Palestinian violence that prompted them.
Rev. Alex Awad, a Methodist missionary and Dean of Students at Bethlehem Bible College, offers a distorted view of the First Intifada in his DVD regarding the Arab-Israeli conflict.
The author may not have meant it to be so, but Adrian Blomfield’s recent article in the British Telegraph about tensions in Jerusalem could serve as a “How-To” guide for anti-Israel bias. It seems all the elements are there to skew public understanding of recent events in Israel’s capital.
