CAMERA Prompts Washington Post Blog Correction on Settlement Freeze


CAMERA staff elicited the following correction on a Washington Post blog post which erroneously stated that the settlement freeze that Prime Minister Netanyahu imposed last year was six months:

Error (Washington Post blog, Jackson Diehl, 11/8/11): Early on [Netanyahu] announced his acceptance of Palestinian statehood, something he has never done; he responded to Obama's misguided demand for a freeze on Israeli settlements in the West Bank and Jerusalem by imposing a six-month moratorium. . .

For five of the six months of the Israeli settlement moratorium he refused Obama’s appeals to begin negotiations . . .


Correction (Posted as of 11/10): The length of the settlement freeze was in fact ten months, not six months.

CAMERA commends Jackson Diehl for the prompt correction.
