Well, that was almost accurate!

NewsMax writes (in an email:)

In September 2000, President Bill Clinton asked the U.N. to delay the opening of the General Assembly out of respect for the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur (the holiest day on the Jewish calendar.)

The answer was an emphatic “No.”

Clinton boycotted the General Assembly’s opening day and spoke the following week.

What happened:

US President Bill Clinton is to address the session today, having delayed his address by a day because of Yom Kippur.

The United States, Israel, and the American Jewish Congress had lobbied the UN to delay the start of the assembly session, but the 188-member General Assembly refused to change the date. –Jerusalem Post, September 21, 1999.

We congratulate NewsMax on very nearly getting a story right.

That’s OK. The Net will correct news sites’ stories for them. No need for accuracy.
