CAMERA Prompts Boston Globe Correction on Legality of Settlements

CAMERA prompted the following correction by the Boston Globe clarifying the U.S. government’s position on the legality of Israeli settlements in the West Bank and Gaza, a contentious and frequently misrepresented topic.

Error (Boston Globe, Farah Stockman, 4/15/04): Since the 1967 war, when Israel captured Gaza and the West Bank, US policy has regarded settlements in those territories as illegal under international law.

Correction (5/5/04): Because of a reporting error, an April 15 Page One story on US policy on the Middle East incorrectly stated that since 1967 US government policy has regarded Israeli settlements in the West Bank and the Gaza strip as illegal under international law. The Carter administration held that settlements were illegal. Subsequent administrations, including the current Bush adminstration, have opposed settlement activity, but have taken no position on the legality of the settlements.
