CAMERA Letter Corrects Washington Post on ‘Tantura Massacre’

Accuracy, not Censorship, is the Issue in Theater J’s Production of ‘The Admission’
Regarding the March 16 Arts article “The pressure play at Theater J”:

Some concerns about this article: First, Theater J’s Ari Roth claimed he must stage “The Admission,” which alleges that Israelis carried out a massacre in the Arab village of Tantura in 1948, because “there is a debate that needs to be convened and not stifled.” But that debate took place in Israeli courts. They found the allegation libelous, the second time on appeal. The Post’s wording, “a messy ending that has never been fully cleaned up,” obscured the outcome.
