Ha'aretz Lost in Translation, VIII
In this month's installment of the Ha'aretz Lost in Translation Series, Ha'aretz's English translators transform Ibrahim Sarhan, a Hamas member killed yesterday by Israeli troops into "a Palestinian civilian." The English news brief, by Anshel Pfeffer, reads:
Nowhere does the English edition mention that Sarhan was a Hamas member, despite the fact that the Hebrew version states:
On the other hand, the English edition notes the Israeli source's claim that Sirhan died following a problem in his medical treatment, while the Hebrew doesn't.
Meanwhile, Elder of Zion blogs that Maan Palestinian News Agency was also hit by a similar bout of Lost in Translation.
