SIR – “Who’s at fault?, (Letters, Tuesday 26), asks Berlin Rabbi, Walter Rothschild regarding civilian deaths in Gaza.
Well technically as the occupying power who’s blockade causes great suffering, despite a duty under international law to protect civilians, ISRAEL is. Even humanitarian workers bringing supplies to Gaza have met with death!
My old friend on the same page - Rudi Leavor - (“Double standards?”), asks why, if people are protesting about the sale of Israeli goods, they do not protest outside Muslim shops and restaurants at “Muslim” atrocities.
The answer my friend, is simple. Israel is responsible for indiscriminate slaughter and wrecking of lives and livelihoods, as even Jewish survivors of the holocaust recognise. Most people are not racist or “religionist”. Apart from a shared religion, Muslim businesses have no connection with the perpetrators of evil, calling themselves “ISIS” or whatever. Unless any Muslim scholar wants to tell me otherwise, this scum will get a big shock when the time comes for them to try enter paradise.
