Haaretz Corrects About East Jerusalem Arabs’ Voting Rights

CAMERA’s Israel office last week prompted correction of a March 8 Haaretz article which had incorrectly stated: “Jerusalem’s Palestinians have no right to vote for the Knesset.” 

 In fact, Jerusalem Palestinians with Israeli citizenship do have the right to vote in the Knesset. As a March 18, 2015 New York Times correction stated:
Following communication from CAMERA, Haaretz editors corrected the online edition, which now acknowledges that those east Jerusalem Arabs with Israeli citizenship can vote for the Knesset. The revised wording notes that “93 percent of Jerusalem’s Palestinians have no right to vote for the Knesset.”
