(2/5/06): In last Sunday's Insight, the story "Barbarians at the gate, or just prgmatists?" misstated the extent of Israel's administration of Gaza's borders. Israel controls all of the borders except Gaza's border with Egypt, which is controlled by the Palestinians.

(7/30/04): In a story July 14 about Israel’s barrier, a quotation from Palestinian activist Mustafa Barghouti may have implied that the barrier would be responsible for an additional 58 percent of the West Bank coming under Israeli control.

Barghouti’s estimate, according to his spokesperson, related to the total amount of West Bank land that Israel has taken control of since the country’s creation in 1948.
