New York Times Admits Israel Reporter Only Relied on Palestinian Accounts for Jerusalem Story
A September 14th article titled Jewish Man Dies as Rocks Pelt His Car in East Jerusalem with Diaa Hadid's byline was appended twice with corrections.
Apparently, just as U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon talked about Palestinian saying, "it is human nature to resist the occupation," the New York Times article talks about Palestinian attacks on Israelis, as well.
Palestinians frequently argue that rocks and crude incendiary devices are among their only weapons to press for independence, and to defend themselves against Israeli forces during confrontations. For some young Palestinians in areas where there are frequent tensions, their use has become a rite of passage.
