Error (Associated Press, Cara Anna and Fares Akram, 6/2/15): The Palestinian Return Center this week was granted consultative status at the United Nations, prompting Israel's U.N. mission to protest that the organization is associated with Hamas and "promotes anti-Israel propaganda." . . .

 
On Tuesday, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh's office announced that Haniyeh had called the NGO's leader, Majed al-Zeer, and congratulated him on its new U.N. status.


Correction (7/21/15): In a June 2 story about an organization called the Palestinian Return Center, the Associated Press reported erroneously that the group was granted consultative status at the United Nations. The move was a recommendation for consultative status, not the final decision, which came Monday when its accreditation was approved.
 
A corrected version of the story is below: . . .
 
The Palestinian Return Center this week was recommended for consultative status at the United Nations, prompting Israel's U.N. mission to protest that the organization is associated with Hamas and "promotes anti-Israel propaganda." . . .
 
On Tuesday, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh's office announced that Haniyeh had called the NGO's leader Majed al-Zeer, and congratulated him on its recommended status.



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 (CNN, Dec. 3, 2012): A group of soccer stars have called for Israel to be stripped of hosting rights for a top European age-grade tournament next year following last month's bomb attacks on Gaza. More than 60 players including Didier Drogba ... signed a petition ..."

Correction (Dec. 7, 2012): Editor's note: An earlier version of this story stated that 60 players, including Didier Drogba, had signed the petition. The petition on December 6 had 52 signatories, not including Drogba."

(The article was also updated to note that "CNN has not been able to confirm" the purported reports that, according to the petition, claimed the teens were killed while playing soccer.)



Error (Guardian, Harriet Sherwood, 1/13/13): According to activists, a large military force surrounded the encampment at around 3am. All protesters were arrested and six were injured, said Abir Kopty. . . .

Palestinian legislator Mustafa Barghouti, who was was among those arrested, said the eviction was "proof that the Israeli government operates an apartheid system."

Correction (Online as of 1/15/13): This article was amended on 14 January 2013. Activists were detained but not formally arrested. This has been corrected.



Error (Boston Globe, Reuters article, 10/14/05): Another major denomination, the United Church of Christ, turned down the divestment idea at its convention last summer.

Correction (Boston Globe, 10/20/05): Because of an error by the Reuters news agency, a story on the Oct. 14 Nation pages misstated the position of the United Church of christ on divesting from companies that profit from Israel's occupation of the West Bank. Last summer, the church's General Synod endorsed a broad "economic leverage" program rather than one specifically of divestment, though it retained that as an option. It also castigated Israel for building a barrier to seal off the West Bank.



Error (Reuters, Michael Conlon, 10/13/05): The Geneva-based World Council of churches has backed divestment in companies profiting from the occupation of Palestinian territories. Last summer, the United Church of Christ rejected divestment on the same issue at its convention...

Error (Detroit News, Hasan Newash and David Finkel, 4/6/05): A list of other divestment support organizations includes ... Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International.

Correction (Letter to the editor, 4/15/05): We would like to correct an error in our commentary "Pulling investments in Israel will promote Middle East peace," April 6. We incorrectly listed the human rights organizations Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch among the groups involved in the divestment movement. ... Neither organization ... is involved in divestment. Neither has called for stackholders to divest from Caterpillar holdings or called for a suspension of all sales of Caterpillar products to Israel.

Error (New York Times, photo caption, 3/17/03): A photo taken by the International Solidarity Movement shows Rachel Corrie trying to talk to the driver of an Israeli bulldozer before it killed her.

Correction (3/26/03): A picture caption on March 17 with an article about an American protester who was crushed by an Israeli Army bulldozer in Gaza referred incorrectly to the bulldozer shown. It was one that the protester, Rachel Corrie, had earlier tried to stop from destroying a Palestinian home. It was not the one that killed her.
