Ha'aretz Headline Again Erases Violence

On Thursday we documented how a Ha'aretz headline writer transformed violent stone-throwing incidents, in which Israelis were injured, into "peaceful" protests. Friday there was more of the same, as a page two subheadline in the English edition states "No violent clashes." The subheadline is contradicted by the factually accurate accompanying article by Avi Issacharoff, which reports:

Major violent clashes between the Israel Defense Forces and the Palestinians have not yet occurred. . .

As Issacharoff correctly notes, no major violent incidents occurred, though violent incidents did occur, nonetheless, as detailed in our earlier analysis.
