Ha'aretz's "Jews Only" Road Rage

Ha'aretz once again misleads readers, promoting the false canard about West Bank roads for "Jews only."

An article today by Yair Ettinger mentions a petition filed by residents of Beit Hanina against a decision to build a new road linking the Jerusalem neighborhood of Pisgat Zeev to Route 443. The article states: "Peace Now described [the road] as being a 'road for Jews only.'"

Really? A quick check of the Peace Now Web site finds that the organization did not say this. Rather, the group's statement about the planned road reads: "Route 20 is planned as a road for Israelis only, to connect Jerusalem and 443."
