READ­ERS OF an ar­ti­cle pub­lished in the Au­gust 7 is­sue may have mis­tak­enly thought that Ge­orge Gal­loway, when speak­ing at an anti-war rally about his sup­port for Hizbol­lah and its leader, had pointed to Has­san Nas­ral­lah’s state­ment that “the Jews in­vented the leg­end of the Nazi atroc­i­ties”.

In­fact,it­wastheNa­tion­alUnionofStu- dents which had pointed to th­ese com­ments by Has­san Nas­ral­lah when con­demn­ingMrGal­loway­for­thissup­portof the Hizbol­lah leader. We ac­cept that Mr Gal­loway did not re­fer to the atroc­i­ties dur­ing that speech and in­deed has de­scribedtheHolo­caus­tas­the“worstcrime in his­tory”. We apol­o­gise to Mr Gal­loway for any em­bar­rass­ment or dis­tress.
