CAMERA Obtains Correction at Chicago Tribune


CAMERA obtained the following correction at the Chicago Tribune regarding the extent of Hamas’ terrorist goals.

Error (Chicago Tribune, Joel Greenberg, 3/22/04): He [Yassin] said that “Israel will pay for its crimes” and that Hamas would continue resisting occupation, a phrase that generally refers to bombing and shooting attacks on Israelis in the West Bank and Gaza.

Correction (3/27/04): Stories Jan. 17 and March 22 gave an incomplete explanation of what the militant group Hamas means when it talks about resisting Israeli occupation. Hamas says it considers Israel, as well as the West Bank and Gaza Strip, to be occupied land, so its use of the term resistance can refer to attacks inside Israel as well as Israelis in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
