A correction in the July 16 edition of the Washington Post addressed the designation of Gilo as a "Jewish settlement." It was the second of two corrections that the Washington Post made in that article in response to CAMERA's request.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas may have a credibility problem, but not the one The Washington Post reported on May 27. The Post, in a lapse at odds with its reputation for detailed exposes', omitted inconvenient truths about the Palestinian leader.
Washington Post's Howard Schneider makes the surprising claim that: "The fate of an estimated 8.6 million displaced Palestinians and their descendants, including more than 3 million registered for humanitarian aid in Gaza, the West Bank and nearby Arab countries, is among the central issues to be resolved in any Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement." The highest number heard from advocates of the Palestinian "right of return" in the context of Israeli- Palestinian peace agreements is 5 million.
