После публикации одиозного антиизраильского письма в Ланцете его главный редактор прислушался к мировой медицинской общественности и совершил ознакомительную поездку в Израиль, посетил больницы и научные центры.

Итог замечателен: Horton concluded his visit on Thursday with a lecture in the Rambam Grand Rounds, entitled Geopolitical Issues and Responsibilities of Medical and Scientific Journals. Speaking to a standing room only audience, Horton began on a personal note, by stating, “I need, very honestly, to set the record straight with you. First, I deeply regret the completely unnecessary polarization that publication of the letter by Paola Manduca caused… Second…I was personally horrified at the offensive video that was forwarded by two of the authors of that letter. The world view expressed in that video is abhorrent and must be condemned, and I condemn it.” After a round of applause, Horton continued, “I will be publishing what I have just said in The Lancet next week.” During the course of his visit, Professor Horton also expressed his clear opposition to boycotts in general and to BDS in particular.

Многие ли из нас способны признать ошибочность своих публичных действий?
