CAMERA rebuts a Washington Post op-ed by two former U.S. State Department officials that incorrectly asserts that settlements are the chief obstruction to peace between Israelis and Palestinians.
A recent Politico report on U.S. policies towards "settlements" omits important history and wrongly claims that they are a "clear violation of international law." But as CAMERA noted in The Times of Israel, the truth is more complex than Politico's narrative allows.
For AP or other reporters to ask Palestinians about rejection of peace proposals would require them to act like real journalists, rather than pro-Palestinian activists. Any reporter who fails to ask such questions is either unaware of the basic facts, or is a propagandist. Either way it is inexcusable.
A recent Washington Post Op-Ed is heavy on blaming Israel for the "occupation" but is light on facts. CAMERA highlights the context and information that The Post left out.
The latest U.S. peace initiative for Israelis and Palestinians has received considerable coverage. But as CAMERA details in the Algemeiner, reporters have failed to note the long history of Palestinian rejectionism.
Amanpour presents guest Gundar-Goshen’s false theory that alleged Israeli Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, cynically exploited by Prime Minister Netanyahu, is the reason that the peace process with the Palestinians has failed.
CAMERA takes to the pages of the Philadelphia Inquirer to correct a misleading report, and to note that it is the Palestinian Authority, not Israel, which has continuously rejected peace.
A recent report by Politico claims that Palestinians are "coming to support" a one-state solution. In fact, history shows that Palestinian Arab leaders have always rejected the idea of a Jewish state.
The Washington Post's offered extensive, and often misleading, coverage of Israel's elections. Post reporters and op-eds portrayed Israeli PM Bibi Netanyahu as the obstacle to peace, while completely omitting the responsibility of Palestinian leadership.
The New York Times claims that the Oslo Accords "committed both sides to a two-state solution." They did no such thing.
