Times of Israel corrects after misidentifying Jerusalem bomber Eslam Froukh as an Israeli Arab. A resident of east Jerusalem who murdered two civilians in the Nov. 23 double-bombing, he does not have Israeli citizenship.
CAMERA prompts a Haaretz clarification after the English edition stated as fact that Israeli Arabs convicted of violent assaults during May 2021 riots received "disproportionate punishments," as opposed to attributing that claim to demonstrators, as the Hebrew edition rightly did.

Violent crime, including homicides, has been skyrocketing in some of Israel's Arab communities.

By what rationale has the Jerusalem Post declined to correct the patently absurd claim that Israelis who haven't served in the army, including most haredim and Arabs, are not permitted to work?
