CAMERA's correspondence with the New York Times led the paper to correct an editorial that wrongly characterized BDS as merely opposed to the occupation. The BDS campaign seeks to destroy Israel.
UPDATED: CAMERA prompts correction after CNN's Sam Kiley absurdly claimed that Israel fought in the 1948 and 1967 wars "to expand territory." In fact, Israel fought to prevent Arab campaigns to annihilate the Jewish state.
A New York Times story on UNRWA claims that the UN agency serves "hundreds of thousands" of Palestinians who fled or were expelled in 1948. In fact, no more than some 30,000 from the original refugees are still living.
After Reuters misrepresented the Jewish city of Tel Aviv as an Arab city prior to 1948, editors improved the more problematic Arabic article but declined to clarify in English. Meanwhile, Ynet commendably corrected while The Jerusalem Post failed to do so.
CAMERA prompts correction of a Reuters article which erroneously reported that "nearly all" of Gaza's residents are 1948 refugees or their descendants. In fact, that figure is closer to 70 percent.
CAMERA Arabic prompts correction of a Reuters report which in Arabic inaccurately characterized all Arabs who left Israel in 1948 as having been expelled, ignoring that the vast majority fled, often at the urging of their own leaders.
Yesterday The Los Angeles Times and Reuters both departed from their usual language which acknowledges that among the hundreds of thousands of Palestinians displaced in 1948, some fled and some were driven out. While Reuters has updated, The Times has yet to address its misleading passage which noted only those who were driven out, ignoring the majority who fled of their own accord, often at their leaders' behest.
CAMERA prompts AP corrections after photo captions erroneously referred to "some 5 million Palestinian refugees who were displaced during the 1948 war" as receiving UNRWA's services. That figure is really under 30,000.
