Due to an editor’s error, an article by Ofer Shelah in last week’s Forward Forum (“How To Become a Darling of the Settler Movement,” June 24) included a partial and misleading quote from a television appearance by Shelah in which he discussed his new book on Ariel Sharon. Shelah did not state a personal belief that Sharon adopted his Gaza disengagement plan solely to divert attention from a corruption investigation. What he told the television interviewer was: “Sources close to Sharon say that ‘if it hadn’t been for the investigations, the decision would never have been taken.’”

An article in the June 17 issue on a new exhibit of Israeli art in Berlin omitted the name of the show’s co-sponsor. “The New Hebrews: A Century of Art in Israel” has been organized by the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, in cooperation with the Martin-Gropius-Bau. The exhibition is co-curated by Yigal Zalmona.
