CAMERA Obtains Correction at the Washington Post

A letter from CAMERA to the Washington Post prompted a correction on an article which vastly overstated the number of Palestinian refugees. Today’s correction is similar to a New York Times correction two days ago which CAMERA also elicited. The Post correction follows:

Error (Washington Post, Scott Wilson, 4/16/04): In endorsing a disengagement plan promoted by Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, President Bush on Wednesday may have lowered the hopes of Mohammed Dhahir and millions of other Palestinian refugees who have long claimed rights to the land they left behind.

Correction (4/19/04): An April 16 report from Jordan that referred to millions of Palestinian refugees should have noted that this includes the descendants of the refugees who fled in 1948 from lands that are now Israel.
