In the Jan. 9th edition of the Telegraph’s new weekly newsletter, Letter from Jerusalem, their correspondent Raf Sanchez wrote that “only around 43 per cent of Israelis support a two-state solution today”.
However, the Times of Israel article he linked to, and the actual poll results, make it clear that this number only represents the views of Israeli Jews, and that if you include the views of non-Jewish citizens, Israeli support for two states is actually over 49 per cent.
We contacted Telegraph editors, who upheld our complaint and included a note about the error in the Jan. 16th edition of the newsletter.
