(St. Petersburg Times, Bill Maxwell, 6/24/01, and Patriot Ledger of Quincy, Mass., 7/2/01): I came to understand the real meaning of the terms "occupation" and "settlers" in the Israeli and Palestinian conflict two years ago as I looked out the window of my room at the Marriott Hotel in Nazareth, a northern city in the West Bank.
(Patriot Ledger, 7/4/01): A column by Bill Maxwell of the St. Petersburg Times, published on this page Monday, referred to Nazareth as being on the West Bank. Nazareth is in Israel proper.
(St. Petersburg Times, 6/28/01: Patriot Ledger, 7/4/01): (St. Petersburg Times, 6/28/01): In his Sunday column, Bill Maxwell incorrectly referred to Nazareth as "a northern city in the West Bank." Nazareth is within Israelís 1948 borders and is not part of any "occupied" territory.
(St. Petersburg Times, Susan Taylor Martin, 8/1/00): As to whether 3-million Palestinians who left their homes in Israel should be allowed to return, "that will still take some negotiations."
(8/10/00): An Aug. 1 story about Khalil Shikaki, a Palestinian professor, incorrectly reported the number of Palestinians who left Israel in 1948. An estimated 600,000 left then, but Palestinians seek the "right of return" for some 3-million, which includes descendants of the original refugees.
