The May 19 Metro article “Judge: Terror suspect’s words can be used at trial” stated that a terrorism suspect’s parents “immigrated from Palestine.” Last I heard, there has been no peace accord between Israel and the Palestinian Authority resulting in a country called Palestine. For people who immigrated after 1948, it is factually incorrect to state that they “immigrated from Palestine.” The Post could have chosen many factually correct terms to describe his family’s place of origin, including the Palestinian territories, the territories under Israeli military occupation and the West Bank and Gaza.
