IsraelNationalNews has an op-ed titled JPost Apologizes for NIF Op-ed.
Below is the JPost apology.
On Friday, August 21, the Jerusalem Post published an op-ed by the New Israel Fund which was factually inaccurate and slanderous.
The said article has been removed from our archives.

The article can still be found on the New Israel Fund site along with a photo of the article which ran in the JPost print edition on August 21.
So, the JPost has removed the article from its archives. Unfortunately, the same can't be said about the print edition.
An AP article informs readers that Amna Farooqi was voted President of the J Street U National Student Board.
A dovish pro-Israel lobby in the US that has struggled for acceptance by more established Jewish groups has elected an American Muslim as president of a core initiative - its chapter program on college campuses, where debates rages over Israel and Palestinians.
You can hear Ms. Farooqi speaking at J Street's National Conference in a video on YouTube.
Last night you heard Jeremy speak a little bit about how J Street U is taking the lead in pushing our communal organizations to disclose how their funding supports settlements and other obstacles to peace. We believe that by pushing for greater transparancy we are holding our institutions accountable for their role in perpetuating the occupation...If there was ever a time to go all in with everything we have to hold our institutions accountable, to follow the money, to end the occupation, it is now.
Sounds quite pro-Israel, n'est-ce pas?
By the Mitzva of Shiluach HaKen the torah tells us (Ki Seitzei 22:7), "L'maan Yitav Lach V'Haarachta Yamim", in order that it will be good for you and you will live a long life. By Kibud Av V'Eim in the second Dibros (VaEschanan 5:17), the torah promises the same reward that we don't find anywhere except for these two mitzvos. What is the commonality between them?
The Klei Yakar answers that the words "Lmaam Yitav" imply that the good will be a direct ramification of your doing this mitzva. If you honor your parents your children will learn from you to honor their parents and you will benefit. If you chase away the mother bird before taking her young, you will teach them to have rachmanus even on an animal that gives birth to young and certainly on parents who give birth to their children.
The reason why these two mitzvos are rewarded with long life is because they both testify to the fact that Hashem created the world and it didn't happen by itself. By honoring the previous generation who gave birth to you, you acknowledge that everything in the world came from something before it to which you owe honor. This leads you back to a "first and only" and that would be Hashem to whom you owe the greatest honor. If you believe that the world just happened, then the previous generation is not better than you, but rather a product of timing and you owe them no respect. Fo this you are rewarded with a long life and earning the privilege to spend more time in the world Hashem created.
