There was an error in the reportage of a supposed “apology” from Miftah organization director Hannan Ashrawi for alleging that the Jews use Moslem or Christian blood in their Matzot.

What counts is what is written in Arabic.

When you check the Arabic web site of Miftah, not only is there no apology – the Miftah organization attacks those who dared to attack and criticize them for this allegation.

Ù…Ùتاح – ‘Ù…Ùتاح’ تستنكر الهجمة التحريضية ضدها

رام الله- تدين المبادرة الÙلسطينية لتعميق الحوار العالمي والديمقراطية- Ù…Ùتاح، حملة التشويه التي يتم شنها ضد “Ù…Ùتاح” وضد من أسسها وهي د. حنان عشراوي، من قبل مدونة الكترونية تدعى “حكيم صهيون”ØŒ وتتهم Ùيها “Ù…Ùتاح” بالترويج Ù„Ùرية الدم خلال عيد الÙصح اليهودي، من خلال إعادة نشر مقاله منقولة على صÙحتها الإلكترونية أشارت للموضوع ÙÙŠ إحدى Ùقراتها.

وتوضح “Ù…Ùتاح” أن النص الوارد ÙÙŠ تعري٠قسم المقالات يشير بشكل واضح أن “المقالات والآراء المنشورة، تعبر عن رأي صاحبها، ولا تعبر بالضرورة عن رأي Ù…Ùتاح”ØŒ مع العلم أن المقال قد تم رÙعه عن الصÙحة لتجنب أي سوء Ùهم من المكن أن يحدث.

إن “Ù…Ùتاح” تؤكد على رؤيتها ÙÙŠ تعميق الحوار العالمي والديمقراطية، والحل السلمي لحل النزاع الÙلسطيني الإسرائيلي، وهذا يتضح جلياً ÙÙŠ المقالات التي تنشر على الصÙحتين العربية والإنجليزية والتي تكتب باسم Ù…Ùتاح.
