Weeks after news accounts blamed Jewish arsonists for a fire in a West Bank mosque, an investigation finds the cause was electrical. CAMERA followed up with media outlets that had reported as fact that the mosque was attacked, with positive outcomes at AP, New York Times and Haaretz.
Now that Ha'aretz has commendably corrected the erroneous claim that Netanyahu was the first Israeli PM to demand Palestinian recognition of Israel as a Jewish state, will Reuters and The New York Times follow suit?
CAMERA rescinds a correction request given that Reuters was referring to building plans in the Shuafat refugee camp and not in a separate Jerusalem neighborhood of the same name.
Reuters posits that the barrier in eastern Jerusalem has heightened partition of the city. Readers need not be confused by the contradictory fact that Arab families are moving into Jewish neighborhoods and increasing their ties to Israel.
