Israel’s Foreign Ministry complained to Al-Jazeera after the Qatar-based TV network said Israeli extremists were responsible for Wednesday’s suicide bombing in Israel. The ministry’s deputy director general, Gideon Meir, said “we immediately complained” after Al-Jazeera said the outlawed Kach organization was behind the attack. Even after Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the attack, Al- Jazeera “of course did not bother to apologize and say that there was a mistake with their broadcast,” Meir said.
