Correction on Iran and Israel--Which Leader of the Latter Ignores
NYT notes, and produces video, that shows that the new leader of Iran did NOT call for the destruction of Israel as widely quoted (gleefully, by some). I love this: "Even after video showed that Iran’s incoming president had been misquoted, a spokesman for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the Israeli leader stood by his initial response to the false statement... Hours later, the prime minister’s official spokesman to the Arab media, Ofir Gendelman, posted an Arabic translation of Mr. Netanyahu’s rejoinder on Facebook without mentioning that the comment that prompted the response was never made."
