CAMERA Prompts Correction at International Herald Tribune

Bad editing at the International Herald Tribune led to an error on the basic history of Jerusalem. CAMERA staff prompted a correction in today’s edition. The error and correction follow:
Error (International Herald Tribune, Isabel Kershner, 7/29/08): Israel took Jerusalem in the 1967 war and then annexed it.

Correction (8/2-3/08): Because of an editing error, an article Tuesday about tensions between Hamas and Fatah misstated the history of Jerusalem. Israel conquered only the eastern part of the city in the 1967 war, not all of it, and later annexed that part.
