What's Going On at The Guardian?

Check out this incredible headline for Peter Beaumont's 17 January report at The Guardian reads (my emphasis):

Why are French Jews returning to Israel in such numbers?

That has to be deliberate. Funny how it came on the heels of Netanyahu's recent call for French Jews to come "home."

I'll leave you with the following savvy tweet of Charles Edward Frith. It neatly encapsulates the paradox that anti-Semitism and Zionism are basically just two sides of the same racist coin:

"If Hollande said France wasn't their country and all Jews should leave, that would be anti-Semitism. When Netanyahu says it, that's Zionism."

The Guardian seems to have "realised its mistake" and changed the header to "... heading to Israel in such numbers". JSF says something about this.

No response yet to JSF's query about why it was changed.
