Letter to HAARETZ : Who Killed the Arab girl?

Feb 5, 2005

Subject: READER'S LETTER: Who Killed the Arab girl?
Date: Saturday, February 05, 2005 10:04 PM

To HAARETZ' Editor

You may consider my letter for publication as a reader's letter, but I'd appreciate even more if you accept my remarks, take corrective actions and inform me about it.

Sub.: Who Killed the Arab girl
On Monday (31Jan) you reported, based on Palestinian claims what you never checked with the IDF, that the previous day a 10-year-old Palestinian girl was killed by Israeli tank fire at an UNWRA schoolyard in Rafah. It became a world scoop within minutes. Next day the Palestinians arrested a Palestinian suspect in the little girl's murder, who shot into the air during a religious celebration and hit her. Your modest corrections of the previous horrible blood libel were hardly noticed by the world.

Many times Israel has been blamed by you and half of the world for brutally killing Palestinians, like the 12 year old Mohammad al-Dura at the start of the armed intifada, or the Jenin "massacre" - that never was, only to be proven false when all the facts become known. Each time several articles of Haaretz and the world media fuelled hatred of 'the brutal Israel'. But when the accusations turned out to be false the clarifications were not loud and clear.

Much of the world's comdemnation and even hatred towards Israel today have grown out of Haaretz's harsh Israel-criticism. You are of course entitled to your views. However good journalism would require that when the facts justify it, like in the case of this poor Arab girl, you apologize honestly and very loudly, not in 10-words-corrections-on-page-10. In your correction you should turn all your fire against the misinformers or liars who poison the souls of Palestinians, Europeans and more, and thus are an obstacle to peace. You should take disciplinary actions against journalists and editors whose unfounded or unchecked writings besmirch both Israel and Haaretz's reliability.
