Many media accounts have misrepresented the "final status" issues that are now the subject of intensive negotiations at Camp David, often distorting Oslo, UN resolutions, the demographics and history of Jerusalem, and Middle East history in general.
AP's Julia Frankel falsely reports that under the intermin peace deals, "the self-rule government was meant to expand and eventually run a future Palestinian state." In Frankel's telling, the still stateless Palestinians have no responsibility for their current state of affairs, including West Bank economic hardship born of Hamas' Oct. 7 atrocities.
Israel has recently celebrated the 75th anniversary of its recreation. Israel's existence, CAMERA tells the Washington Times, is a miracle. For more than seven decades the Jewish state has fought those opposed to its very right to exist.
The Washington Post's world view on Israel is profoundly distorted. The newspaper's vaunted foreign affairs columnist is once again depriving Palestinians of independent agency, omitting their leadership's predilection for supporting terror and rejecting peace.
The U.S.-backed Palestinian Authority is led by an unpopular kleptocrat, Mahmoud Abbas. But as CAMERA tells Jewish Policy Center's InFocus Magazine, the end of Abbas's rule is coming, one way or the other. And the U.S. would be well advised to plan for the chaos that is likely to follow.
As CAMERA tells the Washington Free Beacon, the 1936 Arab Revolt was, in fact, the first Palestinian intifada, and it made a tragic template for what was to come. Boycotts, rejecting peace and statehood, seeking arms from anti-Western autocrats, Palestinian leaders have been doing all of these things for nearly a century.
By bringing on someone with such a record of outlandish lies, and by refusing to either push back with the facts or bring on an opposing perspective that could have countered Diana Buttu’s falsehoods and calls to ethnically cleanse the land of Jews a second time, MSNBC once again shows contempt for credibility and accuracy.
It seems likely that CNN's Christiane Amanpour entirely fabricated findings from nonexistent “latest polls.” A request for substantiation sent to Amanpour has so far gone unanswered.
A recent Gallup Poll showed that Americans have increasingly little faith in the media. The Washington Post, which just announced a new standards desk, might be working to restore trust. But as CAMERA tells the Algemeiner, when it comes to coverage of Israel, the Post has its work cut out.
A recent Washington Post report is undone by its own biases and editorializing. The article's reliance on one-sided sourcing, and its insistence on misleading omissions, leaves open questions about the direction of the newspaper's Jerusalem bureau.
As CAMERA tells the New York Sun, Ambassador David Friedman's recently released book, "Sledgehammer," offers lessons for press and policymakers. It also highlights stale thinking and instances of antisemitism at Foggy Bottom.
