Ha'aretz Changes Direction on 443

After stubbornly refusing to correct earlier false reports that Highway 443 (from Modi'in to Jerusalem through the West Bank) is "Jewish-only," Ha'aretz today reports that the road "has been serving Israelis only," that is Arabs and Jews.

Though writer Akiva Eldar gives a history of Palestinian efforts to gain access to the highway, he ignores the history of Palestinian attacks on the highway since 2000--including the murder of eight motorists--which prompted the IDF to prohibit most Palestinian traffic.
