Washington Post Corrects: Jerusalem is Israel’s Capital

CAMERA staff prompts a commendable correction at the Washington Post making clear that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital, and not Tel Aviv, as wrongly reported last week. The error and correction follow:
 

Error (Washington Post, Scott Wilson, 3/21/12): Obama’s more aggressive message this year reflects the increasing concern in Washington, Tel Aviv and other capitals about Iran’s enrichment program, which Israel believes will be used to produce a nuclear weapon.

Correction (3/30/12): A March 21 A-section article about President Obama’s annual message to the Iranian people incorrectly referred to Tel Aviv as the capital of Israel. Israel designated Jerusalem as its capital in 1950, although many countries maintain embassies and other diplomatic missions in Tel Aviv because of the Palestinians’ competing claim on Jerusalem as their capital.
