Ha'aretz's Yitzhak Laor takes a page out of Gideon Levy's book and stubbornly denies the release of thousands of Palestinian prisoners in recent decades. Department of Corrections calls.
Yitzhak Laor claims that, in the first Lebanon war, the IDF "blew up the mosque in Ain al-Hilweh with hundreds of people barricaded inside, including children." His own source does not support his baseless claim, the latest Laor blood libel.
A far-left radical, Laor fabricates claims of Israeli misconduct and Ha'aretz readily prints them without regard to accuracy.
Ha'aretz, the Israeli daily newspaper relied upon by the Israeli elite as well the Western press corps, has printed for the second time in just over a month the same factual error. The second error appeared yesterday despite the fact that editors had already been provided with documentation refuting the erroneous claim.
