Wall Street Journal and New York Times Correct Inaccurate Stories

Wall Street Journal corrects the arsonist who attempted to burn down the Al Aqsa mosque was a Christian Australian tourist, not an Israeli. The New York Times corrects after misreporting that all of Jerusalem was controlled by Jordan prior to 1967.

Wall Street Journal Falsely Charges Israeli Arson of al-Aqsa Mosque

A news article in the Wall Street Journal (11/13) falsely charges that in 1969 an Israeli tried to burn down the al-Aqsa Mosque, when, in fact, the arson was committed by a tourist, a fundamentalist Protestant from Australia. It should also be noted that Muslim bystanders attacked Israeli firemen as they struggled to save the mosque.
