BACKGROUNDER: Does Israel Use “Palestinian” Water?

In recent years press accounts have charged Israel with unfairly and illegally draining water from “Palestinian aquifers,” enabling Israelis to enjoy green lawns, clean cars and full swimming pools, while leaving Palestinians with barely enough to drink. Thus, the New York Times reported last year that: In the West Bank, water allocation is a zero-sum game, and Palestinians consider local…

Israeli Outlets Foment Demonization With Sloppy Journalism

With its coverage of the controversy surrounding Ethiopian women taking contraception shots, Ha’aretz yet again demonstrated its ability to shape – and distort – international media coverage about Israel. Ha’aretz covered an investigation by Israeli journalist Gal Gabai broadcasted on the “Vacuum” television program of Educational Television, and from there the story was carried around the globe. Unfortunately, the story that Gabai pedaled…

Haaretz Corrects: Israel Didn’t Refuse Request To Supply Vaccines for Palestinian Health Workers

CAMERA’s Israel office yesterday prompted correction of a Haaretz Op-Ed by Shannon Maree Torrens which falsely claimed that Israel refused a request from the World Health Organization to provide vaccines for Palestinian health workers. The Jan. 11 Op-Ed, “COVID vaccines: The latest example of Israel’s most lethal disregard for Palestinian lives,” appeared in the English’s print edition as well as…

BDS Activist Peddles Fabrications in California Newspaper

Sandra O’Neill, a California activist in the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Campaign (BDS) who manufactures grotesque falsehoods about Israel, has managed to peddle her fabrications, including the shooting deaths of small Palestinian children, to a Chico, Calif., newspaper. In the last month, Chico News and Review, which describes itself as “your independent alternative news & entertainment resource,” published a letter-to-the editor by…

NPR Fabricates News Hook To Revive Apartheid Canard

With Israeli plans to apply sovereignty in parts of the West Bank in deep freeze since September, National Public Radio’s Dec. 8 broadcast relies on a flimsy pretext to level the baseless apartheid smear at the Jewish state, falsely claiming that the plan prompted an Israeli “debate” about whether West Bank Palestinians live under apartheid (“Do Palestinians in Israel-Occupied West…

Palestinian Prisoners Day Misleads Students Worldwide

This year’s Palestinian Prisoners Day (PPD) took place on April 17. Every year, activists use this occasion in an attempt to draw international attention to the hundreds of Palestinians arrested and detained annually by Israel in the West Bank. Yet much of this campaign is dominated by blatant inaccuracies and exaggerations regarding Israel’s behavior, and its supporters all but ignore…

Amnesty International’s Big Lie about Israel

Amnesty International’s report Israel’s Apartheid Against Palestinians charges that Israel enforces a “cruel system of domination” against Palestinians (by which they also mean Israeli Arabs) which amounts to a “crime against humanity.” Because the generally accepted remedy for apartheid is that the guilty state be dismantled, such charges must be supported with iron-clad evidence. Does Amnesty’s report meet this challenge?…

Black Lives Matter, JVP’s Deadly Exchange, and Israel

When legitimate grievances are co-opted and hijacked by opportunists seeking support for their own causes — under the guise of intersectionality — problems will inevitably arise. The callous murder of an unarmed black man, George Floyd, by a Minneapolis policeman, Dennis Chauvin, sparked grassroots outrage and widespread protests against police brutality and racial injustice in the U.S. — under the…

“Jewish Voice for Peace” (JVP): What the Media is Concealing

A recent manifestation of the BDS campaign’s intrinsic Jew hatred was the creation and promotion of  a local  “mapping project” in the Boston area as a resource for anti-Semitic engagement during a time of rising anti-Semitism. The map targets Jewish religious, educational and communal organizations for disruption and dismantlement, but before it was roundly condemned by politicians across the political…
