Anti-Israel Bias Revealed by State Department's Gaff

Rush to wrongly chastise Israel over 1982 settlement reveals State Dept's prejudice against Jewish State. From the NY Sun:

"Indeed, before the State Department even said that Israel should abide, why didn't they first check? Or why haven't they checked by now? And the same question can be asked of the New York Times. They editorialized and wrote about the story. They have reporters in Israel. Why didn't they first check?

It seems increasingly clear that the settlement isn't new. And yet between the State Department, the AP, the New York Times, and others, for two days Israel was repeatedly attacked and accused of violating a peace agreement. We're reminded of the Winston Churchill line that "a lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on."

Will the Times and the AP apologize for printing incorrect stories, and for misinterpreting the State Department statement (as State claims)? And will the State Department apologize at a minimum for not contradicting erroneous claims made in its name? "
