A Palestinian spokesman takes ‘Nakba Day' tour of Jaffa. The Washington Post takes the bait. It's the latest annual example of a journalistic flight from facts.
Palestinian spokesmen Nabil Sha'ath, Hassan Abdel Rahman, Yasser Abed Rabbo, Ahmed Abdel Rahman and Saeb Erakat took the Western media for a ride in April 2002, loudly proclaiming Israel had committed a "massacre" in Jenin. Yet, despite copious evidence of their blatant lying, the credibility of these spokesmen with the American press is apparently unaffected.
