CAMERA Prompts Correction on Beilin Op-Ed in Ynet


CAMERA staff prompted the following correction of an Oct. 15 Op-Ed by Yossi Beilin in which he falsely stated that all Jerusalem Arabs are Israeli citizens, and yet they are not granted a vote in national elections or given an Israeli passport. The Op-Ed appeared in Ynetnews.com, the English-language Web site belonging to Israel's Yediot Achronot newspaper.
 
Error (Ynetnew.com, Yossi Beilin Op-Ed, 10/15/07): All of the 250,000 Palestinians residing in Jerusalem continue to remain Israeli citizens (albeit without the right to vote in Israel's Knesset and without an Israeli passport, but with full social benefits such as health and education.) 

Correction (Online as of 10/25/07): All 250,000 Palestinians in Jerusalem are entitled to Israeli citizenship, but if they decline, they are automatically considered permanent residents (albeit without the right to vote in Israel's Knesset and without an Israeli passport, but with full social benefits such as health and education).

Fact: Israeli citizenship grants Jerusalem Arabs a vote in national elections and an Israeli passport.
 
CAMERA first noted the error on Snapshots. (The blog entry noted reports that said that the English edition of Ynet was set to close. Latest rumors are now that it will not shut down.)
 
The Beilin error was also corrected in Ynet's Hebrew edition.
