Thomas Friedman

Error (New York Times, Thomas Friedman, 3/25/04): Suicide bombing totally undermined Labor’s Ehud Barak and helped elect Ariel Sharon in 2001.

Fact: While there had been countless Palestinian terror attacks–shootings, stabbings, and roadside bombs–against Israelis from the start of the Intifada in September 2000 until the elections on Feb. 6, 2001, there was just one suicide bombing in that period. The Oct. 26, 2000 bombing in the Gaza Strip did not manage to kill anybody aside from the bomber, and slightly injured only one person. How could one suicide bombing, in which no one aside from the bomber was killed, and only one person was slightly injured, “totally undermine” Barak and lose him the election?
