Apologies for any hurt caused

Published 11/01/2010

In my letter ('Blame lies on both sides for war in Israel', Write Back, January 7) I incorrectly accused Steven Jaffe and Terry McCorran of Northern Ireland Friends of Israel of attempting to defend war crimes committed by Israel.

I wish to make clear that Mr Jaffe and Mr McCorran made no such attempt and that my statement to this effect was not justified by the contents of their previously published letter.

I wish to offer Steven Jaffe, Terry McCorran and the Northern Ireland Friends of Israel my full apologies for any hurt or embarrassment I have caused them.
