Lying for Peace

At about 2 p.m. EDT on September 14, the headline on the lead story of the "left-wing" Israeli daily Haaretz's online edition read, "PLO official: Palestinian state to be free of Jews." This was based on an earlier USA Today article with an almost identical headline: "PLO ambassador says Palestinian state should be free of Jews." By 4 p.m., Haaretz had evidently decided to protect its readers from the unpleasant truth, changing the headline to read: "PLO official: Palestinians, Israelis must be totally separated."

Question for the editorial board of Haaretz, which recently saw fit to write about the detention and intrusive body searches of Israelis arriving in Istanbul aboard Turkish Airlines, "Perhaps Israelis need humiliation to respect others:" Do you really think your lies will bring peace?

  1. Reb Mordkhe, recall what the prophets said about the false prophets: They say, Peace Peace and there is no peace.
