US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Israel's Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman clashed over US demands for a freeze on settlements in Palestinian territory.
At a press conference after talks in Washington on Wednesday, Clinton reaffirmed US demands for an end to settlement building but her Israeli counterpart rejected the call.
Perhaps it is naive to expect unbiased news coverage today, especially where Israel is concerned. But the land in question has never been controlled by a Palestinian Arab entity and almost all the settlements are built on empty land where no Arabs lived or are living. So using the phrase "Palestinian territory" can only mean a) that the author of the story doesn't know anything about Middle Eastern history or b) the author is trying to influence the ultimate arrangements for that territory by making people think that it was once owned by the Palestinian Arabs and therefore should revert back to their control
Either way, one would expect accuracy from major news outlets, regardless of their political positions. Words matter.
