CAMERA Prompts Boston Globe Correction on Gaza Settlers

CAMERA staff prompted the following Boston Globe correction today regarding an article earlier this week which reported as fact what turned out to be a false allegation by a Palestinian official against Israeli settlers in Gaza.

Error (Boston Globe, Thannassis Cambanis, 12/31/2005): Palestinian firms have risen to the occasion, repairing greenhouses sabotaged by departing settlers and by Palestinian looters.

Correction (11/3/2005): Because of a reporting error, a Page One story Monday about greenhouses in former Israeli settlements in the Gaza Strip stated that Israeli settlers sabotaged greenhouses before withdrawing from Gaza in August. The article should have said some settlers dismantled their own greenhouses before leaving, and that Palestinians looted some greenhouses after the Israelis withdrew. A Palestinian official, Mahmoud Abu Samra, asserted to the reporter that Israelis had sabotaged some greenhouses, but he did not provide evidence to substantiate the allegation.
