Reuters needs a GPS

The cartographers at Reuters are at it again and would like us to know that:

"Israel captured Arab East Jerusalem in a 1967 war and annexed it as part of its capital in a move never recognized internationally. Palestinians want the city as capital of a future state."

Perhaps Reuters can refer its readers to a single authoritative map which delineates the "city" of "Arab East Jerusalem".

Even the Palestinian National Authority is a bit lost.


  1. Keep up the good work

    Did you know Gilad Schalit was 'spirited into Gaza by Islamic militants'?
    You see, Hamas is more civil than we think. They don't kidnap people, they merely spirit them away.

  2. Yes, we saw that as well. Reuters writers are masters of the art of the euphemism when it comes to describing -- or shall we say, sanitizing -- Palestinian violence. They are not quite so kind in their descriptions of Israeli defensive actions.
