    British paper says columnist's attack on Israel 'regrettable'
    By DOUGLAS DAVIS


    LONDON - The London Evening Standard has apologized to readers who, it says, were "rightly offended" by a vitriolic attack on Israel contained in the regular column of British author A. N. Wilson.

    The paper said that Wilson unknowingly quoted "notorious white supremacist and Holocaust denier" Michael Hoffman and said it was "a matter of great regret that Hoffman or any of his propaganda was publicized."

    Condemning its own columnist, the paper said that it "fundamentally disagrees" with the opinions expressed by Wilson, "but, as with all its columnists, allows him freedom of expression."

    "We apologize to readers who were rightly offended by the material in A. N. Wilson's column," the paper added.
