White House edits photo caption, taking Jerusalem out of Israel

Israel/Palestine
on 66 Comments

Good catch by the unreconstructed neocons at the Weekly Standard: two hours after Daniel Halper posted a White House caption from more than a year ago that characterized Jerusalem as part of Israel–

Vice President Joe Biden laughs with Israeli President Shimon Peres in Jerusalem, Israel, March 9, 2010.

–the White House removed the word Israel from the caption.

Halper was posting the photo to argue that even the White House knows that Jerusalem is in Israel (he’s evidently a Zionist, engaged in our politics on matters that are helping to destroy the American image in the Middle East). A bit of spine on the White House’s part, huh? I think Obama hates Netanyahu and can’t wait for a second term to sock it to him.
