More Reuters errata

In the article discussed just below, Jeffrey Heller continues in the fine Reuters tradition of misrepresenting the obligations of the warring parties as specified in the Road Map:

"Netanyahu, who holds further talks on the settlement issue later this week with U.S. envoy George Mitchell, has resisted a total freeze stipulated by a U.S.-backed 2003 peace "road map" that also commits the Palestinians to reining in militants."

See our criticism of Reuters' handling of this crucial point in Reuters' broken boilerplate.

Heller also awards the Arabs sovereignty over the eastern portion of Jerusalem with a factually incorrect and racially-loaded epithet:

"Some 300,000 Israelis live in the West Bank and another 200,000 in Arab East Jerusalem..."
