Time.com Corrects: No “Surge” in Settlement Population Under Trump

After communication from CAMERA, Time.com corrected a headline that referred to a nonexistent “surge” in the number of Israeli settlers during Donald Trump’s first year in office. The headline asserted, “Jewish settlers in the West Bank surged since President Trump took office, an Israeli settler leaders says.”

Headline: Jewish settlers in the West Bank surged since President Trump took office, an Israeli settler leader says

CAMERA informed editors that, according to the numbers in the article itself, settlement growth mildly decreased during 2017.

The amended headline now reads, “Israeli settler leader says settlements continued to grow in 2017.”
