Haaretz Editorial Repeats Inaccuracy About East Jerusalem Arabs

Despite the fact that just last month Haaretz corrected a news story which erred on the status of east Jerusalem Arabs, an April 10 editorial again misrepresents about the rights of this population, stating:

Palestinians in Jerusalem, comprising almost 40 percent of its population, are not citizens of the country. . .

In fact, as last month's correction indicated, some seven percent of east Jerusalem Arabs hold citizenship.

The Independent also corrected the identical error last month. The Independent's March 11 article originally stated that "Arabs living in [Jerusalem] do not have citizenship."

Following communication from CAMERA's UK Media Watch, The Independent corrected its story, which now accurately reports that "most Arabs" in the city don't have citizenship.

In March 2015, CAMERA prompted a New York Times correction which made clear that those Jerusalem Arabs with Israeli citizenship may vote for Knesset election.

As of this writing, Haaretz has failed to amend its editorial.
