A recent Washington Post article is replete with errors, both of omission and co-mission. The Post parrots anti-Israel propaganda and fails to provide readers with essential background and history.
The Ramadan jihad of 2021 was a violent campaign that was planned well before Ramadan and evolved into a full Hamas war with Israel that extended beyond the period of Ramadan. That war, in turn, became a tool to demonize Israel in the latest round of a hostile propaganda campaign whose goal is the delegitimization and eradication of the Jewish State.
Mohammed El-Kurd tweeted a video that portrayed a Palestinian attacker as a victim, and refused to update his followers even after the full facts were presented to him.
Instead of centering the actual story – a stabbing attack – the headline centers the attacker, framing her as a victim for facing “eviction” and being “held.” No evidence is provided that the property dispute actually motivated the attack. The article's lede about "long-running tensions in the neighborhood" similarly turns the story into the justification of a violent attack by a Palestinian teen girl on a Jewish mother in front of her young children.
The Boston Globe's Abdullah Fayyad misrepresents the facts of the Sheikh Jarrah property dispute to weave a false narrative of Israeli ethnic cleansing and apartheid.
A long-simmering controversy over the fate of Jewish-owned land and Palestinian tenants in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of Jerusalem has once again become frontpage news after yet another court decision reaffirming the pre-1948 Jewish ownership of the land and the obligation of the Palestinian tenants to pay their rent or be evicted.
Correspondent Trey Yingst fails to report that Sheikh Jarrah tenants are being evicted due to failure to pay rent, then calls Jerusalem, "what Israel says is the capital of their country."
