Ha'aretz's Eldar Wins Journalism Prize

Ha'aretz reports today that its senior military correspondent, Akiva Eldar, received the Eliav-Sartawi Award for Middle Eastern Journalism from the group Search for Common Ground in New York yesterday.

"Media in the Middle East should be self-critical about its role in deepening the rift,"

says Eldar, the same journalist who has done more than his share to deepen the rift by spreading falsehoods about E-1 construction, an apparently non-existent Hamas compromise, Moledet activist Aryeh King, Gaza hothouses, Palestinian incitement, Hanan Ashrawi, and so on and so on.

Ha'aretz also reports:

Prizes were also awarded to Bassam Aramin, a member of Combatants for Peace who lost his daughter to a Border Police shooting last year . . . .

But as CAMERA earlier documented, it wasn't at all clear that border police were responsible for Aramin's death. But nevermind. The cause -- co-existence -- is a worthy one, so why get hung up on such meddlesome details?
