CiF Watch Correction

My post on July 11, “The  murder of an Israeli peace activist, and the Guardian theatre of the absurd“, used a partial excerpt from a longer quote by Guardian columnist Howard Brenton which gave the impression that Brenton was accusing Israel of murdering Freedom Theatre Director, Juliano Mer-Khanis, in April 2011.

After re-reading the full quote, it’s clear that, though Brenton was accusing the IDF of engaging in a “systematic harassment of the Freedom Theatre” and its personnel, there was nothing in the quote suggesting that Brenton was explicitly alleging Israeli culpability for Mer-Khanis’s murder.

The post has been revised, and now includes the full quote.

My thanks to an alert reader who brought this mistake to our attention.
