Error (Toronto Star, photo caption, 5/11/16): The number of Palestinians who were displaced during the 1948 war surrounding Israel’s establishment is estimated at more than five million people.

Correction (Online as of 5/15/16): The number of Palestinians who were displaced during the 1948 war surrounding Israel’s establishment, along with their descendants is estimated at more than five million people. . . .

 
Correction: A photo caption accompanying a photo with this article was edited from a previous version to make clear that the number Palestinians displaced during the 1948 war surrounding Israel’s establishment includes their decedents.



Error (Toronto Star, Raveena Aulakh, 5/9/13): Celebrities from around the world have refused to perform in Israel in recent years as part of an effort to promote the Palestinian cause, including musicians Elvis Costello and Stevie Wonder, and Hollywood actors Bruce Willis and Meg Ryan.

Correction (5/24/13): A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that Meg Ryan refused to perform in Israel. In fact, Ryan has never boycotted Israel. A previous version also said Stevie Wonder refused to perform in Israel. In fact, Wonder cancelled a planned performance at a Los Angeles fundraising concert sponsored by the Friends of the Israel Defence Forces. He then said he would make a donation to organizations that support Israeli and Palestinian children with disabilities.



Error (Toronto Star, Raveena Aulakh, 5/8/13): Celebrities from around the world have refused to perform in Israel in recent years as part of an effort to promote the Palestinian cause, including musicians Elvis Costello and Stevie Wonder, and Hollywood actors Bruce Willis and Meg Ryan.

Correction (5/15/13): A May 9 article about physicist Stephen Hawking’s refusal to attend an Israeli conference in a show of support for a pro-Palestinian boycott stated that actor Bruce Willis is among celebrities around the world who have refused to perform in Israel in recent years in support of the Palestinian cause. In fact, Willis has never boycotted Israel.



Error (Toronto Star, Op-Ed by Haroon Siddiqui, 11/14/04): A top Sharon adviser has conceded that the prime minister's real intent is to prevent the emergence of a true Palestinian state. If so, it is in conformity with his lifelong agenda and also the kind of thinking expressed in 2002 by Moshe Yaalon, army chief of staff: "The Palestinians must be made to understand in the deepest recesses of their consciousness that they are a defeated people."

Correction (8/8/09): A Nov. 14, 2004, column about the death of Yasser Arafat included an unverified quotation attributed to former Israel Defence Forces chief of staff Moshe Yaalon.

Yaalon, now Israel's strategic affairs minister, was quoted in that 2004 column as saying in 2002 that "the Palestinians must be made to understand in the deepest recesses of their consciousness that they are a defeated people."

That quotation, while widely cited over the years, did not appear in the 2002 interview published in the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, to which it has been attributed. Alon Ofek-Arnon, a spokesman for Yaalon, told the Star in an email that Yaalon never said this. As well, in a correction about this same quote published March 6, 2009, by the Chicago Tribune, Ari Shavit, the writer of the 2002 Haaretz article, said Yaalon did not say that. The Star has been unable to reach Shavit.
