Following UKMW tweet, Independent updates story on death of Palestinian girl


BY ADAM LEVICK ON AUGUST 31, 2017 • ( 23 COMMENTS )

After UK Media Watch alerted the Independent that a police investigation over the tragic death of a young Palestinian girl had cleared the Israeli driver of negligence, they updated their article on the incident accordingly.

Independent revives 2006 Gaza Beach libel


BY ADAM LEVICK ON AUGUST 7, 2017 • ( 5 COMMENTS )

Though most articles which refer to the 2006 Gaza beach incident now refer to the cause as ‘disputed’, an article in The Independent written by Bethan McKernan published on August 1st reported that the girl, now 23, has graduated college, and provided background on the incident which takes practically as a given that Israel was to blame. 

Independent fails to correct Ken Loach’s lie of “racially segregated” West Bank roads


BY ADAM LEVICK ON JULY 18, 2017 • ( 38 COMMENTS )

Ken Loach’s claim in The Independent that there are apartheid-style, “racially segregated roads” in the West Bank is an outright lie, and we encourage you to lodge a complaint at the Indy using this online form.

Did the Independent just publish a fake Ben-Gurion quote? (Update)


BY ADAM LEVICK ON MARCH 29, 2017 • ( 39 COMMENTS )

The sole source for the alleged quote appears to be a book by Hirsh Goodman published in 2005, which purports to recall a radio broadcast by Ben-Gurion on June 10th, 1967, day five of the Six Day War. We could find no other evidence to back up Goodman’s claim.

UKMW prompts Independent to remove article legitimising the views of anti-Zionist extremist


BY ADAM LEVICK ON MARCH 22, 2017 • ( 12 COMMENTS )

Whilst we commend Indy editors for removing the article, the fact that one of their Middle East correspondents respects and was willing to amplify the views of such an anti-Zionist extremist serves as a troubling reminder of institutional anti-Israel bias which informs so much of their coverage of the region.

Independent or PressTV? Indy piece on Israel cites ‘analysis’ of fringe extremist and 9/11 truther


BY ADAM LEVICK ON MARCH 14, 2017 • ( 3 COMMENTS )

It’s quite telling that of all the political analysts the Indy journalist could have asked to comment, she chose a radical, anti-Zionist extremist who employs tropes about Zionism’s putative collusion with Nazism so vile they’d likely make Ken Livingstone blush.

The Independent repeats ‘fake news’, claiming “50 racist laws” in Israel


BY ADAM LEVICK ON JANUARY 15, 2017 • ( 6 COMMENTS )

CAMERA and other watchdog groups have refuted Adalah’s claims that there are 50 “racist laws” in Israel – a term used so carelessly by the NGO that even an Israeli public health law requiring that parents vaccinate their children is bizarrely included on their list of “racist laws”.

The Independent tries to define Zionism


BY ADAM LEVICK ON DECEMBER 11, 2016 • ( 33 COMMENTS )

Even if you are not convinced that the Zionism = Racism canard is not antisemitic in intent, it is undeniably antisemitic in effect, because such a characterization necessarily means that Jews (the overwhelming majority of whom are Zionists) support a racist ideology.

The Independent misleads with photo illustrating Naftali Bennett’s 2-state comments


BY ADAM LEVICK ON NOVEMBER 15, 2016 • ( 13 COMMENTS )

The goal of journalism is to report the facts and inform the reader. When the Independent chose to mislead with a photo of Netanyahu, they were not engaging in journalism, but were involved in polemic and slander.

After UK Media Watch complaint, Independent furtively corrects false claim.


BY ADAM LEVICK ON OCTOBER 6, 2016 • ( 10 COMMENTS )

Once again, we see the lengths British media outlets will go to avoid admitting error.

Two egregious omissions illustrate continued anti-Israel bias at the Independent


BY ADAM LEVICK ON SEPTEMBER 27, 2016 • ( 6 COMMENTS )

Once again, the Indy has shown its propensity – at least regarding their coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict – to favor propaganda over anything resembling professional journalism.

The Independent places the Temple Mount in “Palestine”


BY ADAM LEVICK ON SEPTEMBER 26, 2016 • ( 4 COMMENTS )

An article published earlier in the month at Indy100 (The Independent’s BuzzFeed–style website featuring ‘click bait’ and viral content) highlighting photos from around the world of Muslims celebrating the festival of Eid […]

Independent cherry-picks Dutch PM’s comments on BDS


BY ADAM LEVICK ON SEPTEMBER 15, 2016 • ( 18 COMMENTS )

Once again, the Indy has exaggerated the impact of BDS and significantly skewed the facts to reinforce the increasingly absurd narrative that Jerusalem is facing ‘increasing international isolation’.

Jenny Tonge in the Independent: unrepentant on antisemitism


BY ADAM LEVICK ON AUGUST 1, 2016 • ( 20 COMMENTS )

Shah admirably acknowledges what Jenny Tonge would not: that you can style yourself an anti-racist and genuinely care about the ideals of equality and social justice but, when it comes to Israel, still be drawn towards narratives, rhetoric and tropes associated with classic antisemitism.

Independent op-ed scolds Elie Wiesel for his “blind spot towards the Palestinians”.


BY ADAM LEVICK ON JULY 4, 2016 • ( 61 COMMENTS )

Over at Israellycool, you can find a collection of tweets by some vile Israel haters vilifying Elie Wiesel on the day the world learned of his passing at age 87. The tweets, […]

Independent and Times of London make only superficial revisions to water libel stories


BY ADAM LEVICK ON JUNE 21, 2016 • ( 45 COMMENTS )

1) There have indeed been water shortages since the start of Ramadan (and since the start of the summer heat), but these were caused naturally by an increase in demand and a shortage of supply from the mountain aquifer. 2) This water shortage has affected both Jewish and Palestinian communities in the West Bank. 3) Israel actually increased the water supply to Palestinians in Hebron and Bethlehem, and to all Palestinian communities at night, to accommodate Palestinian Muslims observing the holiday of Ramadan.

The Independent whitewashes the extremism of BDS


BY ADAM LEVICK ON JUNE 8, 2016 • ( 11 COMMENTS )

An article in the Independent by Rachel Revesz (New York governor Andrew Cuomo orders a boycott of anti-Israel movement, June 7th) included the following characterization of the BDS movement. The Boycott, Divestment […]

The Independent plays a willing part in the Ayatollahs’ Purim spiel


BY GUEST/CROSS POST ON MARCH 20, 2016 • ( 13 COMMENTS )

It is an astonishing phenomenon that western journalists leave their critical faculties at the door when they write about the treatment of minorities by autocratic regimes. Independent readers will remain blissfully ignorant that the Jews of Iran are both instruments of regime propaganda and vulnerable hostages to the Israel-Palestine conflict .

Independent “reveals” Israel’s secret war on Palestinian clowns


BY ADAM LEVICK ON MARCH 7, 2016 • ( 66 COMMENTS )

CAMERA has a continually updated post on biased and inaccurate headlines accompanying articles on the latest round of Palestinian terror – words which often invert reality, blurring cause and effect or otherwise […]

A few questions the Independent could have asked Roger Waters


BY ADAM LEVICK ON FEBRUARY 21, 2016 • ( 20 COMMENTS )

What’s the role of a journalist while conducting an interview about a charged political topic? In the UK, it seems that the accuracy clause of the Editors’ Code likely demands that ques

The biggest surprise of this year’s Dishonest Reporter Award is that the winner has never been given the accolade in the past. However, this year’s recipient, The Independent, has a long and distinguished record of anti-Israel coverage.

Indeed, and I dont think this has sunk in with Ben yet.

I mean the reality is, he would have to ban just about every media site, as they are all complicit in bias and lies on some of their articles.

I doubt Ben will ban these media sources, he accepts lies and hate about Israel, as he is a regressive Leftie
