Charleston Gazette

Error (Charlston Gazette, Op-Ed by Eva Knapp, 4/12/09): A 2008 study by the Red Cross ... shows half of Gazan children under the age of 12 have lost their "will to live." ...

In 2002, then Israeli Defense Forces chief of staff said, "The Palestinians must be made to understand in the deepest recesses of their consciousness that they are a defeated people."

Correction (7/19/09): An April 12 commentary "America must stop blessing killings of Palestinians" by Eva Knapp contained an unverified quotation. Moshe Yaalon, a former Israeli Defense Forces chief of staff, was quoted as saying that "the Palestinians must be made to understand in the deepest recesses of their consciousness that they are a defeated people." Although cited often, the quote does not appear in the Israeli newspaper interview where it is usually attributed and should not have appeared in the Sunday Gazette-Mail.

The same commentary also attributes to an unpublished 2008 Red Cross study the conclusion that "half of Gazan children under the age of 12 have lost their 'will to live.'" A news account of that study by the Independent includes no such statement.
