The Jerusalem Post today describes the killing of a man by two IDF soldiers after, the soldiers claim, he was acting erratically and tried to grab one of their guns. When he was fatally shot by the IDF, says the paper, he was "believed to be an Arab terrorist." As it turns out, he was not an Arab Palestinian but rather an Israeli Jew. Upon learning this, the "terrorist" designation was officially and "immediately" rescinded.
