CAMERA Prompts Wall Street Journal Correction on Aid to PA

CAMERA staff have prompted a Wall Street Journal correction on an article that wrongly conveyed funds are not being transferred to the Palestinian Authority. The error, which we first noted last week on our website, along with the correction, follow:

Error: … Washington cut off all aid to the Palestinian Authority, slashing nearly a quarter of Palestinian’s aid. Israel cut off transfers of a $100 million a month in Palestinian tax revenue it collects on the Palestinian Authority’s behalf.

Correction: Israel resumed tax transfers to the Palestinian Authority in December and Washington has resumed aid payments to the Palestinian Authority, after the two countries interrupted them following Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’s appeal to the United Nations for statehood recognition last November. An earlier version of this article failed to note the resumptions.

CAMERA commends the Journal for its straightforward correction.
