Publication: Daily Mail


Mr Sharif Nashashibi of Arab Media Watch complained that an article had inaccurately referred to the democratically elected Fatah government being wrecked by Hamas.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following letter from the complainant:

Dear Sir, It's incorrect to talk of 'the democratically elected Fatah government' being 'wrecked' by Hamas. Though the democratically elected Palestinian President is a Fatah member, the government in question contained no one from Fatah. It was formed by a Hamas prime minister and approved by the elected parliament consisting predominantly of Hamas MPs. Fatah lost the last parliamentary elections and joined a national unity government only through negotiations with Hamas.

Report: 76
