Occasional EoZ contributor Tomer Ilan noticed on Friday that a New York Daily News op-ed, by American lawyer of Palestinian origin Vivian Khalaf,  included an absurd slander against Israel.

The claim that the IDF shot anti-tank rockets at Palestinian cars is absurd. (That is a Hamas specialty.

The only place on the Internet that this claim can be found is at a site called "Decolonizing Palestine" which is an art/architecture project dedicated to how Palestinians can take over Jewish settlements. 

Tomer and I tweeted about this on Friday. Tomer then contacted Daily News op-ed editor Joshua Greenman, who silently had the article edited to take out the obvious lies:

There is no mention that the piece was corrected, which is the standard journalistic practice. 

How do such lies and slanders get into a mainstream newspaper to begin with?

A hint may come from Khalaf's Facebook page, where she thanks the Institute of Middle East Understanding for their help in getting the piece published. 

The IMEU is an NGO founded by Americans of Palestinian origin that provides "experts" and links to source materials for journalists to use when writing stories about Israel and Palestinians. It seems that the organization, whose board of directors includes prominent CEOs and lawyers, has contacts with the editorial boards of newspapers and can grease the wheels to get opinions published - including opinions with bald-faced lies. 

UPDATE: Tomer pushed back and the Daily News added a correction:

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money.
