Article: Palestine nod

Date: Saturday, January 1, 2011

This short Reuters article reported on Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas thanking Brazil "for recognizing his nation's statehood with the first embassy in the Americas."

Omission: The article gave no indication of the fact that Abbas' actions getting countries to recognize the "State of Palestine" were a violation of the provisions of the Oslo Accords calling for issues to be resolved by negotiations with neither side acting to change the status of the disputed territories.
