CAMERA prompts correction of a letter-to-the-editor by Eitan Peled, former programming director for SJP at UCLA, for his false claim that there are "hundreds of Palestinian children in Israeli military prisons." No Palestinians, minors or otherwise, are held in Israeli military prisons.
Hundreds of Palestinians are taking to the streets to protest the PA's sanctions against the Gaza Strip. Yet, many news outlets are failing to provide coverage.
The magazine geared towards teens had originally published an article making claims that strained credulity.
When Palestinian terrorists imprisoned in Israel went on a hunger strike, the BBC devoted extensive coverage and depicted them as political prisoners.
Released Palestinian prisoner Samer Issawi is an important test case for journalists. His hunger strike continues to garner news coverage. His conviction for multiple attempts of murder, not so much.
The 26 Palestinian terrorists slated to be released soon, the first of over 100 prisoners being released as a "goodwill gesture" to bring the Palestinians to the negotiating table, are almost all murderers of civilians.
To understand the sensitivity of the debate over Israel's decision to release convicted Palestinian terrorists, one must know who these prisoners are and what crimes they committed. CAMERA provides a list.
Ha'aretz's Yitzhak Laor takes a page out of Gideon Levy's book and stubbornly denies the release of thousands of Palestinian prisoners in recent decades. Department of Corrections calls.
All too often, mainstream media outlets whitewash the violent acts of Palestinian prisoners. Calling those incarcerated since before 1994 "political prisoners" is an egregious cover up of their brutal crimes, detailed here for the first time.
Media interest in Palestinian hunger-striker Samer Issawi intensifies, albeit selectively. Ha'aretz publishes an enormous photograph of Issawi, but doesn't include even half a sentence about his indictment for attempted murder and other violence.
