Honest Reporting added: “While Mr. Woodley is entitled to his opinions, he’s not entitled to his own facts. There are no roads built solely for Jews.”  According to Honest Reporting, the editor’s note and removal of the “Jewish only” claims were prompted by its contacting the Star and Woodley.

We wrote to the Star’s editorial page for more information, but were referred to the newspaper’s public editor Kathy English. We’ve written to English and will update with any response.
