SIR – I want to see a world at peace, but don’t see it happening any time soon. According to defenders of Israel’s belligerence, Hamas, a terrorist organisation, like the PLO before it, (remember “President” Arafat?), wants the destruction of Israel.
I can’t see that happening in a thousand years, especially as the USA and most of the free world would come to her aid, (possibly even me!) Israel really should leave the illegally occupied territories. If attacked from them, she would be justified in retaliating. She CANNOT use that justification while occupying them, certainly not when so many innocent people, including children, will inevitably be killed and seriously injured.
