In an item in last Sunday's The Feral Beast column, we wrongly stated that David Aaronovitch was a member of the Hasbara committee, an organisation that seeks to promote Israel's reputation. In fact, he is not connected to Hasbara at all. We now understand that the Hasbara website describes individuals as a "Hasbara author" merely because Hasbara themselves have referred to these individuals' work on their site, and the authors may have no knowledge of this or connection to Hasbara, as was the case here. We apologise to David for our error.
