Defence is just

First published in Letters

As usual, we see people writing about the Israel/Palestine conflict, telling us how evil Israel is as it occupies and oppresses the West Bank and starves and destroys the Gaza Strip.

When Egypt, Syria, Jordan and Iraq threatened Israel would be wiped off the face of the earth in 1967, Israel’s hand was forced into the situation that Palestine sees itself in today.

The United Nations gave the Jews a homeland in 1948 because we in the west and the rest of the world could not stop persecuting them for centuries.

Since 1948 they have been attacked four times and had thousands of rockets shot at them and countless terrorist attacks.

It seems the world just cannot leave them alone and are hell bent in finishing off what an evil man in the Second World War wanted to fulfil.

It's usually 6 of one half a dozen of the other, but Israeli land grabbing has decimated Palestine. The UK started the issue the Americans compound and supported it. We just will not learn to mind our own business, and, arm the wrong side, it is a very unequal 'war' which the Palestinians have no chance of winning, 580 dead against very few Israeli. IT is slaughter on an industrial scale and suggesting Palestine is ANYTHING like Hitler is ridiculous. How long will Israeli keep using WW2 to justify its own genocide ?
