CAMERA's Presspectiva calls out Haaretz for an Odeh Bisharat Op-Ed which falsely claimed that PM Netanyahu said he saw British soldiers as a child, although they departed one year before he was born. Haaretz removes the falsehood from both the Hebrew and English editions.
CAMERA prompts a correction after Haaretz categorically claimed that "Jerusalem's Palestinians have no right to vote for the Knesset." In fact, those who hold Israeli citizenship may vote for the Knesset.
Haaretz's English edition prioritizes the story about the closing of Jerusalem's Church of Holy Sepulchre with a prominent page-one article, but in comparison to the Hebrew edition, provides remarkably less information key to understanding the issues.
For the second time, CAMERA prompts correction of Haaretz English edition coverage of Ibrahim Abu Thuraya. While an Amira Hass Op-Ed in English misled about how the double amputee lost his legs, the same Op-Ed in Hebrew did not.
CAMERA prompts corrections at AP, DPA and Haaretz's English edition, where captions stated as fact that Israel was responsible for Ibrahim Abu Thuraya's death, despite unclear circumstances. The captions also wrongly said he lost his legs in an Israeli bombing.
CAMERA today prompts correction of an Haaretz article wrongly identified the Western Wall as "Judaism's holiest site." (That distinction belongs to the Temple Mount.) Another "Haaretz, Lost in Translation," the error had appeared only in the paper's English edition.
