Earlier, we noted the following tweet from Sussex Friends of Israel in response to an article published at Lancashire Post, a UK regional daily. (Note the bottom of the tweet which shows the photo caption.)
As you can see, the photo caption placed the Al Aqsa Mosque in “Jerusalem, Palestine”.
We promptly emailed editors at Lancashire Post arguing that there is of course no such country as “Palestine” and that the Jerusalem holy site in question is in Israel. Editors upheld our complaint and revised the caption accordingly.
In Sept, 2016, UKMW prompted a similar correction at The Independent.
