On Nov. 4, we spotted the following error in an Independent article written by Matt Broomfield titled “Israel: Prayer protesters in violent Western Wall clash with ultra-conservative Orthodox Jews.”
Of course, the Temple Mount is Judaism’s holiest site, not the Western Wall.
They promptly responded and agreed to correct this latest error.
The sentence now reads: “Hundreds of Reform Jewish activists marched on Jerusalem’s Western Wall yesterday, demanding equal access to one of the most holy sites in Judaism and scuffling with their ultra-conservative Orthodox brethren.” (Emphasis added.)
