When the liberal left network MSNBC aired this ridiculous map insinuating that Israel had stolen land from the “state of Palestine,” viewers roared so loudly about it that they’re having to apologize and correct it.
Here’s the segment:
The map they aired was this one, which makes it look like there was a state called Palestine that Israel had stolen land from since 1948:
The problem is that this is completely a lie because “Palestine” didn’t exist back then, it was a conglomeration of other countries.
And much of that land wasn’t stolen, it was won in defensive wars from Arab countries that were trying to wipe Israel off the map!!
There was so much anger about it that MSNBC has apologized and will correct it:
The Free Beacon: MSNBC has admitted that highly controversial graphics aired on the network that depicted Israel as stealing land from the Palestinians were “factually wrong” and that the broadcast would be corrected on Monday, according to a network spokesperson.
The cable news network has been fighting off criticism after it aired the graphics and analysis, including a map linked to conspiracy groups branded as anti-Semitic, that portrayed Israel as existing on territory expropriated from Palestine.
The graphics garnered criticism from pro-Israel advocates and has now prompted the network to acknowledge that the graphics were highly misleading.
“In an attempt to shed light on the geographic context of the Israeli-Palestinian issue, we aired a map that was factually wrong,” the spokesperson said on Sunday.
Two MSNBC broadcasters, Kate Snow and Martin Fletcher, “will address the map in a segment Monday about agendas and disinformation on both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,” the spokesperson said.
Fletcher, a Middle East analyst, said on Sunday that the map and analyses were “dead wrong.”
