CAMERA prompts corrections at MSNBC's "Morning Joe" after Keir Simmons erroneously reported "Over the past two decades over 600,000 Jewish settlers have built communities in parts of east Jerusalem and the West Bank, land promised to the Palestinians for a future state."
Welcome to Cal Perry's alternate reality, where Israel has a constitution, the state is in "a legitimate constitutional crisis," and Israeli Arabs, too intimidated to vote, have no influence on the political process. MSNBC calls in its expert to explain Israel's political chaos.

Calling Israeli settlements "amorphous things," MSNBC's Joy Reid says a map of Israel, the West Bank, Gaza, Jordan and Egypt shows seven Israeli settlements and demonstrates "how much of the West Bank . . . is already taken up by the settlements."
Diana Buttu, who in the past infamously fabricated that Palestinian rockets have no explosive warheads, now falsely asserts that Israel's border fence with Gaza is electrified.
