The Palestinian sermon highlighted above is important because history has surely shown that bad ideas almost always result in bad choices and, often, horrible individual and societal consequences – and we ignore them at our peril.
Clearly, this circus could not have lasted a minute had the “journalist” actually spoken to the object of his coverage, a Hebrew speaker, or had the “intellectuals” and “experts” had the slightest clue about their area of expertise, the Hebrew language.
Though we don’t know what motivated Pfeffer’s characterisation of Joint List as “left-wing”, at many media outlets there seems to be an instinctual belief that since the party represents and putatively defends the rights of Israel’s Arab minority, they must, by definition, be on the left side of the political divide – a variation of the same halo effect that inspires uncritical coverage of politically regressive, but pro-Palestinian, political movements in the West.
A Guardian article (New York: college volleyball players kneel during Israeli national anthem, Feb. 29) by Victoria Bekiempis began straightforwardly enough: Two Brooklyn College volleyball players kneeled during playing of the Israeli […]
To omit the “Curse/Damnation Upon the Jews” slogan whitewashes the Houthis’ antisemitism and presents them as merely anti-American and anti-Zionist.
To mark Independent Arabia’s first anniversary, we’re presenting six of the headlines their editorial staff found worthy of publishing (under The Independent’s logo) during the past year.
Here’s the latest installment in our ongoing series of posts documenting #BDS fails.
As journalists cover Holocaust commemoration events today in Jerusalem, the lofty rhetoric by world leaders, diplomats and intellectuals evoking the idea ‘never again’ – the moral imperative to never again allow Jew hatred to go unchallenged because we know now where this leads – will ring hollow if the principle of anti-antisemitism is not applied universally.
The Times article fails to note precisely why nearly 80,000 Jews left: the government’s imprisonment, torture and expulsion of Jews, anti-Jewish violence and other anti-Jewish policies that made it impossible for Jews to stay.
As we enter a new decade, we thought it would be fun to look back at some of our more interesting and impactful posts over the past ten years.

This is the fourth in a series of posts by CAMERA Arabic (part 1, part 2, part 3) showing how Arabic language news networks, including those affiliated with Western media outlets, frame […]
Before we provide our examples of Guardian articles, op-eds, cartoons and letters that covered for Jeremy Corbyn’s well documented record of aiding, abetting and, at times, personally engaging in antisemitism, let’s begin with some numbers:
Written by Tamar Sternthal A major media event has hit the biblical town of Bethlehem, Jesus’ birthplace, just days before Christmas: The secretive artist Banksy has produced a new exhibit depicting the […]

For an op-ed to suggest – in late 2019 – that the chrages of antisemitism against Corbyn were “manufactured”, after years of revelations attesting to his long and well-documented record of supporting anti-Semites who call for the mass murder of Jews, in the context of polls showing 87% of British Jewish believe he’s personally antisemitic, and in the midst of an EHRC investigation into whether the party has become institutionally antisemitic on his watch – is obscene.
As even Nicholas Watt, Guardian’s former chief political correspondent, once acknowledged: “quite often on the left the term right-wing is just used to mean ‘bad'”.
The Labour Party’s reluctant acceptance of the IHRA Working Definition of antisemitism in 2018 didn’t occur without a fight. There was one notable dissenter to the proposal to adopt, in full, the […]
