Holy Wrong

Leila Khaled, described by the LA Times as "a longtime PFLP activist," highjacked TWA Flight 840 in 1969 and El Al Flight 219 in 1970

The Los Angeles Times ran a correction today:

Habash obituary: The obituary of George Habash, the founder of Arab nationalism, in Sunday's California section referred to Jerusalem's Dome of the Rock as Islam's holiest shrine. In fact, Islam's holiest site is considered to be the Kaaba, which is near the center of the great mosque in Mecca.

Unfortunately, the 1,236-word obit never once uses the "t" word that would best sum up Habash's life -- "terrorist." Likewise, his colleague, the notorious Leila Khaled, is referred to only as "a longtime PFLP activist."
