Yesterday, we posted and tweeted about the following egregious error in a report at The Telegraph on the scandal surrounding comments by a low-level Israeli employee, Shai Masot, uncovered by an Al […]
Al Jazeera on Sunday published “bombshell footage” covertly filmed in a West London restaurant involving Shai Masot, a political officer at the Israeli embassy, and Maria Strizzola, a civil servant and former aide […]

Unlike the EU, the US does not characterize the settlements as “illegal”. Rather, since the early 80s, they’ve been characterizing them as “illegitimate”, but not “illegal” – a fact noted at the Telegraph in previous reports.
So, the number 463 includes only 50 new homes, 234 units in one new nursing home building and the legalization of 179 already existing homes.
We recently posted about an attack, during the summer 2014 war, on a Gaza home which killed nearly a dozen members of the Siyyam family in light of a new IDF Military Attorney General (MAG) report which concluded that the family was NOT in fact killed by an IDF aerial attack. The MAG report concluded that an errant Hamas rocket was likely to blame.
Even by the low standards we’re accustomed to in our continuous monitoring of the British media’s coverage of Israel, the uncritical review of Ben Ehrenreich book, The way to the spring: life and death in Palestine, which appeared in the Aug. 6 print edition of The Telegraph is appalling. Similar to the Economist review of the same book that we posted about last month, the Telegraph reviewer’s shows extraordinary credulousness in the face of Ehrenreich’s Pallywood tale featuring the Tamimis of the West Bank town of Nabi Saleh.
Last evening, we Tweeted a Telegraph journalist to point out an error and omission in a report (by Megan Charles) on an incident last month in which an Israeli Border Police officer allegedly confiscated a Palestinian girl’s bicycle in Hebron.
Yesterday, we posted about a Telegraph op-ed by Bryony Gordon (Now they have come for families, July 16) on the Nice terror attack which claimed that the truck-ramming assault that killed at least 84 people (including […]
Yesterday, we posted about a Telegraph op-ed by Bryony Gordon (Now they have come for families, July 16) on the Nice terror attack which erroneously suggested that the truck-ramming assault that claimed at least 84 lives (including 10 children) represented the first time in the West that jihadists targeted children. As we noted, contrary to Gordon’s claim, Nice did not in fact represent a monstrous “first” in the West. In 2012, three Jewish children (ages 3, 6 and 8) and one adult were brutally murdered by a jihadist named Mohammed Merah in an attack on a Jewish school in Toulouse. Following our post, we tweeted Ms. Gordon, asking for a comment.
It’s hard to imagine how, when writing her op-ed, Gordon could have forgotten about the Jewish children targeted in Toulouse, an attack accurately characterized as the “worst antisemitic atrocity on French soil in decades”.
Our colleague Gilead Ini recently posted at CAMERA about a fascinating row that erupted on Twitter and “then spread to journalists and their followers, and eventually to the pages of The New York Times.” Ini characterized it as “a series of misquotes, distortions, and out-of-context comments contributed to the idea that Michael Oren, Israel’s former ambassador to the U.S. and a current Knesset member, had advised Donald Trump to play up the Muslim background of the man who murdered 49 people at a Orlando nightclub”.
Last night, two Palestinians from the West Bank reportedly affiliated with Hamas, Muhammad and Khalid Muhamra, walked into the Sorona Market in Tel Aviv and began methodically firing their machine guns at innocent civilians at an […]
The Telegraph’s Inna Lazareva not only joined the heard of independent media voices suggesting that Israel is moving dangerously right, but included a straight-out factual error in her report.
