AP Headline Blamed Israeli for Suicide Bombing

An Associated Press headline dispatched earlier today that described today's suicide bomber in Netanya as an "Israeli" has been changed, but not before it was picked up and published by a variety of online news sites including CBS, ABC, Salon, the Guardian, and Forbes.

The erroneous headline announced: "Israeli Suicide Bomber Kills Five at Mall." The terrorist, who killed 5 Israelis, was actually a Palestinian sent by Islamic Jihad.

The Associated Press acknowledged that they had mistakenly dispatched the false headline. Updated headlines correctly refer to the perpetrator as an "Islamic Jihad suicide bomber."

But this wasn't the first time the Associated Press referred incorrectly to an "Israeli suicide bomber." On Nov. 28, 2005, the wire service dispatched a story entitled, "Brother, sister of failed Israeli suicide bomber cleared of criminal charge in UK." The article went on to note that the bomber was in fact "a Briton," not an Israeli.

Google News shows some of the media outlets that picked up the erroneous AP headline.

It really was an Israeli bomber but the Jews that control the media had it changed. Mistakes like that don't just happen you know!

Watch for variations on this theme on "certain" websites soon, if they're not there already.
