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.
A November 11th report by Axios, a Washington D.C.-based publication, described recently deceased PLO official Saeb Erekat as a "champion of the two-state solution" who "rejected violence and terrorism." But the historical record shows that the opposite is true.
UPDATE: "[P]er the Oslo Accords, the PA is not permitted a conventional military but maintains security and police forces," the CIA Factbook rightly notes. CAMERA prompts corrections in English, Arabic and Spanish after Reuters mischaracterized Palestinian security officers and police as "soldiers."
A Nov. 1, 2020 news article about the Abraham Accords lamented the lack of a permanent peace deal between Israel and Palestinians. But as CAMERA told Post readers: it is not that peace is "elusive"; Palestinian leaders have shown time and again that they're not interested.
An Oct. 19, 2020 report by Foreign Policy magazine stands apart for its brazen adoption of an anti-Israel narrative. Key facts and relevant history are omitted, while the magazine chose to treat antisemites as reliable sources.
CAMERA prompts corrections in English, Hebrew and Arabic after Israeli and Jewish media outlets relied on a report in Sky News Arabia which inflated Zogby poll findings about Arab support for normalization with Israel. Only the Conservative Washington Examiner is the outlier, failing to set the record straight.
Israel's cabinet and Knesset have voted to support recent peace agreements with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. Only one political party opposed accepting the Accords: the Joint List. And the media, despite having lavished recent attention on the Joint List, has declined to report the party's opposition to the peace deals.
The Washington Post's arguments against the recent peace deals between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, known as the Abraham Accords, are nonsensical at best. The Post's opinion section turns logic on its head for partisan purposes.
As anyone with a passing familiarity with the region knows, there have been no Israeli settlements in Gaza since 2005.
In a Vox explainer which begs explaining, Brent Sasley twists himself into a pickle over "creeping annexation" versus "substantive change." Interviewer Jen Kirby stumbles on the "return" of West Bank land to Palestinians and the duo erase Palestinian Authority control in the West Bank Areas A and B.
A June 28, 2020 news report by the North Jersey Record was littered with distortions and omissions. CAMERA took to the paper's pages to note that Palestinians have a long and documented history of rejecting offers for a sovereign Palestinian Arab state if it requires living in peace next to a Jewish one.
