How To Become a Darling of the Settler Movement

Published July 01, 2005, issue of July 01, 2005.

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.
