A Tale of Two Massacres

Has anyone noticed the difference in approach to two alleged Middle-East “massacres” of civilians — one Jenin, and one this past weekend in Hebron?
Seven months have passed, and you still hear Palestinians and their supporters arguing civilians were slaughtered en masse at Jenin, despite a complete lack of evidence for this claim. (Even the U.N. couldn’t manage to find any).
Initial reports of the attack in Hebron also called it a “massacre”, implying that unarmed civlilans were the primary target. Within a few days, however, it became clear that those who were killed were mostly IDF soldiers — and the “massacre” language was dropped:
Foreign Ministry spokesman Gideon Meir said the Hebron “massacre” report came from accounts that the attack “happened as people were returning from synagogues, from prayers.
Militants spearheading an uprising that broke out after talks on Palestinian statehood broke down in mid-2000 have also killed scores of Israeli civilians in suicide attacks in Israel…
Asked if the ministry had erred on Hebron, Meir said, “That’s hindsight. We had information we trusted that later was found to be wrong.”

I eagerly await the day when we see a similarly honest statement from the Palestinian Authority correcting one of their earlier inflated claims.
Heck, I’d settle for one from Amnesty International.
