CAMERA’s Israel office yesterday prompted correction of a Los Angeles Times article which upgraded a Palestinian diplomat from envoy to ambassador. The Nov. 18 article (“Trump administration threatens to shut down Palestinian delegation in Washington“) by Noga Tarnopolsky had erred regarding Husam Zomlot’s title, stating:
Reached in Washington, Palestinian Authority Ambassador to the United States Husam Zomlot said, “I have no comment. No comment at all.”
Palestinian representation: In the Nov. 19 Section A, an article about the Trump administration threatening to close the Palestinian Authority representative’s office in Washington referred to Husam Zomlot as the Palestinian ambassador to the U.S. He is the chief representative of the Palestinian delegation to the U.S.
