A fun New York Times correction to this story about 127 Diaspora recruits who arrived in Israel this week to serve in the IDF:
Correction: August 15, 2012
An earlier version of this article contained an incorrect quote by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at one point. He said, “In previous times, for almost two millennia, the Jews could not defend themselves,” not “for almost two million years.”
(Although, in defense of the reporter, paleontologists have found evidence that Homo erectus tribes in North Africa left behind stone tools, tanned hides, and cave drawings of cowering yeshiva boys.)
But who are we to gloat? Just before publication, we fixed a typo that rendered “Anshe Emeth Memorial Temple” as “Anshe Emeth Monorail.” Ah, the magic of spell check.
