ABC News has announced that controversial veteran correspondent reporter Christiane Amanpour will host an upcoming series on Israel, raising concerns within the pro-Israel community over media bias.

Titled “Back to the Beginning,” the series will follow Amanpour as she travels to Israel to “explore the powerful stories from Genesis to the Birth of Jesus.” According to ABC, Amanpour “wanted to investigate the roots of those stories that have created so much conflict.”

Amanpour, who currently serves as a CNN international news anchor, has been accused of anti-Israel bias in the past. In 2007, she hosted the CNN mini series “God’s Warriors,” in which her reporting drew heavy criticism from media watchdog groups such as CAMERA (Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America) and Honest Reporting.
