On Jenin: For the Record

Just for the record, the Palestinians have finally admited that there was no massacre in Jenin. As it goes,

Palestinian sources are now saying that their death toll in the 2002 IDF incursion into Jenin, was 52, at least 34 of whom were armed, contradicting earlier Palestinian claims that thousands had died, a study to be released next month says.
The study indicates for the first time that Palestinian terror organizations saw themselves as “armed combatants” and not as civilians who died in a deadly massacre. The study’s significance is that it uses Palestinian sources to rebut the original Palestinian claims.

None. Maybe now the anti-Zionists on Columbia’s campus will stop posting stories by the Financial Times asserting that Jenin was “the worst destruction since the Second World War.” It would be nice for the FT and the NYT and CNN and all those other’s respectable outlets to publicize that they were wrong, and that, it seems, official Palestinian claims cannot be trusted.
