Error (NBC News Web site, Cassandra Vinograd, Lawajez Jabari and Paul Goldman, 10/14/15 ): Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu slammed the sea of misinformation and misrepresentation — but himself got the facts wrong, saying a Jewish child had been killed instead of injured — in an impassioned speech telling Palestinian authorities to "stop lying" and inciting violence.

 
"An Arab boy fatally wounds a Jewish child and after that the security forces stop him and prevent him from continuing on a stabbing spree and he becomes a martyr supposedly executed unjustly?" Netanyahu told the Knesset.


Correction (10/19/15): Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu slammed the sea of misinformation and misrepresentation in an impassioned speech telling Palestinian authorities to "stop lying" and inciting violence.

"An Arab boy critically wounds a Jewish child and after that the security forces stop him and prevent him from continuing on a stabbing spree and he becomes a martyr supposedly executed unjustly?" Netanyahu told the Knesset.
 
EDITORS NOTE: An earlier version of this article reported that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told lawmakers that an Arab boy had fatally wounded a Jewish child. That was based on an English translation of Netanyahu's speech posted on his official website. However, the Hebrew translation reflects Netanyahu did not say a Jewish child was killed but rather critically injured. The story below has been updated to reflect that.
