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.
Contradicting both the High Commissioner and Jaffa Arabs who lived through the events, editors of The New York Times, in Manhattan, rewrote history, falsely reporting that in 1948 "most of Jaffa's Arab residents were forcibly removed from their homes." The falsehood appears in the context of a "correction," no less.
The Washington Post misleads on the true nature of the BDS movement; failing to report its documented links to terrorism and its true objective: The destruction of Israel. While it was busy filing inaccurate reports on BDS, The Post ignored a Palestinian terrorist attack and Palestinian political developments.
CAMERA takes to the pages of The Washington Post to address the paper's coverage of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA). CAMERA tells the paper's readers about UNRWA's politicized definition of "refugee" and the organization's documented links to terror groups.
