Foreign Reporters 'Swallowing Lies' From Palestinian Authority

MK Ayelet Shaked (Jewish Home) met with British reporters on Tuesday, and was shocked when they repeated several libelous charges they had taken - without fact-checking - from Arab sources.

The journalists told Shaked that at a briefing in Palestinian Authority-controlled Ramallah they were told that 60 local Arabs were killed by Jews in the last year, and that "settlers shoot at innocent Palestinians with sniper rifles from within settlements." Shaked testified regarding the journalists that "in their eyes it wasn't (a) baseless (accusation)."
