A couple weeks back the Times ran a piece by Isabel Kershner from the Golan Heights, and datelined it Israel. So much for illegal annexation! Well, mirabile dictu, the Times hath now corrected itself:

Because of an editing error, the dateline of the Ghajar Journal article on Feb. 3, about the uncertain future of the residents of Ghajar, a far-flung village that straddles the border convergence of Israel, Lebanon and Syria, misstated the location of the village. It is Ghajar, Golan Heights — not Ghajar, Israel. (Israel’s claim to Ghajar has not been accepted internationally because Ghajar is part of the Golan Heights, which Israel seized from Syria in the 1967 war and annexed in 1981.) (Go to Article)
