Letter to the editor: Editorial got facts incorrect

In answer to the editorial, “Pull the Plug on Israel, Joe:”

Israel has a parliamentary system. The president, who has a ceremonial role, is Yitzchak Herzog. The prime minister is Benjamin Netanyahu, not Begin Netanyahu. Menachem Begin was prime minister of Israel from 1977 to 1983.

In my opinion Netanyahu and his government are reprehensible but a newspaper should be able to get basic facts correct.

Editor’s note: Guilty as charged. Rushed it to get to a meeting; never a good idea. Corrected it online, but not before the paper was printed.
