Yesterday  I noted a blog post by a University of North Carolina professor for Religion News Service filled with lies about Deir Yassin - and even with false images of that event.

Today, that post is gone, replaced with:
Editor’s Note: This post has been temporarily suspended pending review by the editorial team at Religion News Service.
A correspondent received this email from RNS:

Thank you for your note. We are aware of the inaccuracies in Omid Safi's recent blogpost regarding Deir Yassin and are working to correct them. We are also reviewing our guidelines with our bloggers. RNS did not have bloggers until last year, and while we want to give bloggers latitude to express their opinions, we will not tolerate inaccuracies.

Thank you for writing and sharing your concerns. I want you to know we are taking this very seriously.
It is refreshing to see an appropriate response to outright lies. It shows that when people take the time to complain about anti-Israel slander, sometimes it pays off. Great job!

One can only wonder what his students hear from him.

By the way, Safi is considered a leader of the "progressive Muslim movement."

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 19 years and 40,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
