Far-left Israeli newspaper Haaretz has been accused of fabricating an “attack” by Jews celebrating Lag Ba’omer against one of its journalists in Hevron, in an attempt to incite against Jewish residents of the ancient city.

The article claimed that “settlers” celebrating Lag Ba’omer on Saturday night chose to light their customary bonfire in the middle of a “Palestinian olive grove”, and alleged that a group of Jewish celebrants then “assaulted” a Haaretz journalist who was at the scene as he tried to film it. […]

They’re not called the “New York Times” of Israel for nothing. They are the same trashy, self hating* Liberalism that the “New York Times” has to offer

Prison for the reporter who concocted the story, firing and blackballing of the editors responsible, and a full advertiser boycott of Haaretz is in order.

I can hardly believe it. Ha'aertz would no more fabricate a story than the NY Times would.

I believe they are actual partners with the NY Times in some respect. The two papers are closely aligned.

The "New York Times" said that Deir Yassin was a massacre, but contrary to The "New York Times" and the David Duke, electronic intifada inspired wikipedia middle east section, here is the real story of Deir Yassin.
