Report Biased Language

Language matters.

 

For decades, Israel’s enemies have used misleading language to create a false narrative about God’s land and deny Israel’s rights to Judea and Samaria, its biblical heartland. We need your help to fight back.

 

In most cases, conservative and Christian reporters don’t realize they are using biased language and unintentionally undermining Israel. It’s our job to educate them!

 

Report examples of biased language about Israel in the media, and we’ll reach out and educate them. Together, we can change the narrative.

Common Biased Terms

West Bank

The “West Bank” refers to Judea and Samaria, Israel’s ancient biblical heartland. It is a made-up term coined by Jordan after the 1948 Independence war, when Jordanian soldiers slaughtered the Jews of Judea & Samaria and took Israel’s land. Jordan referred to Judea and Samaria as the “West Bank” because it lies to the west of the Jordan River. The term “West Bank” obscures the Jewish people’s connection to their ancient heartland. It’s easier to expel the Jews from the “West Bank” than to kick the Jews out of Judea.

Settlements

The media frequently refers to Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria as “settlements,” implying Israelis are “colonialist settlers” in their ancient homeland and are somehow foreign, intrusive or temporary. Over 500,000 Jews live in Judea and Samaria, many live in large towns and cities, and they are there to stay. Cities and towns in Texas are not “settlements” – and neither are the Jewish communities of Judea and Samaria.

Palestine

Following the failure of the Second Jewish Revolt against Rome 132-135 CE, the country’s name, Judea, was altered to “Palastina Prima” by Roman Emperor Hadrian. At no time did it exist as a separate, independent country. Today, the State of Israel is a sovereign nation of almost 10 million people. There has never been a sovereign nation called “Palestine.” Referring to Judea and Samaria as “Palestine” is a dangerous lie meant to undermine the Jewish people’s connection to Judea & Samaria.

Occupied Territories

Judea and Samaria are not “occupied territories”; they are the Jewish people’s ancient homeland! It is absurd to call Israel an “occupier” of land in which Jews have lived for 4,000 years.
