Israel, through the Washington Post darkly

Israel has a guilt complex. Israel is politically sick. Israel misleads the United States. And some of its own people think its leaders are war criminals. So says recent Washington Post coverage.

Washington Post Distorts Building in Jerusalem

Washington Post correspondent John Ward Anderson has teamed up with Israel's critics in a Post "investigation" indicting the Israeli government and Jewish groups for "consolidating their grip on strategic locations." The result is a highly distorted account of construction in Jerusalem with the broad implication that Jews have no right to move into or build in predominantly Arab neighborhoods regardless of historical and legal claims to property.


Selective Quotes Distort Intent of Sharon's Gaza Withdrawal

In his interview with the Israeli daily Haaretz, Dov Weissglas, a close advisor to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, was asked about Israel's decision to withdraw from the Gaza Strip. According to American media coverage of this interview, Weissglas suggested that Ariel Sharon's true intention in planning the Gaza disengagement is to freeze the peace process and prevent a Palestinian state. However, this was not his message at all; his words were taken out of context.


A Hole in the Story

It's one CAMERA has pointed out before regarding Post coverage touching on Iran's alleged nuclear weapons program.
