On Nov. 8th, the Guardian published an obituary for former Israeli President Yitzchak Navon, who died three days earlier at the age of 94. The obituary, written by Lawrence Jaffe, included three […]
Despite the ubiquity of smart phones, it’s still not every day that a Palestinian terrorist attack is clearly captured on video. This may explain why a clip of a Palestinian woman stabbing […]
A Daily Mirror article written by Siobhan McFadyen about a Palestinian stabbing attack today in Beitar Illit (that was captured on video) included the following opening sentence: Later, however, we’re told something else: So… A Palestinian […]
Studies by groups such as the Community Security Trust and the All-Party Parliamentary Group against Antisemitism following last year’s Gaza conflict highlighted the inescapable connection between media coverage of a war thousands […]
The fact that the British tabloid chose that particular image to illustrate the putative threats faced by British tourists visiting Israel once again demonstrates the willingness of editors to seize upon and exploit even the flimsiest evidence of alleged Israeli villainy.
Yesterday, we posted about a Nov. 4th Times of London review by David Aaronovitch of a new exhibit at the Jewish Museum in London titled Blood: Uniting and Dividing. We paid particular attention to this passage […]
The Nov. 4th edition of Times of London includes a review by David Aaronovitch of a new exhibit at the Jewish Museum in London titled Blood: Uniting and Dividing. Aaronovitch explains that the exhibit explores […]
The reason why such journalists always look for an Israeli root cause when explaining such acts of terror – whether it’s the settlements, “threats” to al-Aqsa, hopelessness, etc. – is that they immediately discount any explanation (no matter how grounded in empirical data) suggesting that attacks have a racist (antisemitic) motive – an ideological orientation which has fed anti-Jewish violence in the region for well over a century.
Most Israelis – even those who don’t support the settlement enterprise – don’t believe that continued construction across the green line (the overwhelming majority of which is located in areas which will likely become part of Israel in any future peace deal) is as important as the answer to one question: What will happen the day after a ‘peace deal’ is signed?
Whether Kaufman is antisemitic or not is barely relevant here. He has said numerous objectionable things before and what goes on in his head is his business. He used to be a relatively important politician who was broadly pro-Israel and pro-Zionist. Now, he is none of those things, but as honorary Father of the House (Parliament’s most veteran MP), his actions cannot be ignored.
On Oct. 28, blogger David Collier broke the story about remarks by Gerald Kaufman MP, at a London event he hosted with the Palestinian Return Centre, which included the charge that “Jewish money” […]
Earlier we posted about a Guardian report which legitimized baseless accusations that Israeli police are planting knives on innocent Palestinians after summarily executing them. Additionally, a new Amnesty International report on Israel buttresses this Palestinian […]
Anyone even somewhat knowledgeable about Palestinian social media and news sites is likely familiar with anti-Israel (and at times antisemitic) conspiracy theories which pass as news. Such faux news often feeds into […]
As some news headlines on the recent Arab terror spree have demonstrated, the media’s capacity to use obfuscatory language to characterize Palestinian terror and extremism is at times quite extraordinary. Not only are […]
CAMERA has been continually updating a popular post on the recent “wave” of headline fails which have “relied on reportorial smoke and mirrors to obscure Palestinian terror attacks and even recast terrorists […]
On Oct. 25, The Sunday Times did what few mainstream British papers would do: they published a story – documented and relentlessly pursued by blogger Elder of Ziyon – about antisemitism and incitement by employees […]
Here’s the full-page ad which appeared in the print edition of today’s Guardian. (The ad was signed by 343 “scholars”, or less than one a quarter of 1% of the roughly 195,000 academics working in […]
CAMERA and BBC Watch are delighted to invite readers to two events which we will be hosting next month in the UK. On November 10th, at 19:30 at a venue in north […]
“The Arabs were Germany’s natural friends because they had the same enemies as had Germany, namely the English, the Jews, and the Communists.” – Haj Amin al-Husseini (1941) In contextualizing UK media coverage […]
The Guardian’s former Jerusalem correspondent Harriet Sherwood penned an article (Star authors call for Israeli-Palestinian dialogue rather than boycotts, Oct. 22) about an anti-BDS letter in the Guardian published the previous day […]
