SIR - I commend my MP Philip Davis for supporting Jewish Zionism against terrorist attacks. (T&A, October 23).

Terrorism is wrong but the term is also applied to freedom fighters by oppressors.

I'd respect Philip more if, ("knowing the situation"), he merely mentioned the many thousands of Palestinians maimed and killed, including babies and children, over the decades and those ethnically cleansed to make way for the many, illegal, Jews or Zionist-only colonies in occupied Palestine.

The Jewish Zionist terrorists that set up Israel committed well documented massacres and ethnically-cleansed hundreds of thousands from their homes, land and livelihoods. (The Nabka). There was no compensation.

Palestinians have been oppressed for many decades. Kind of puts Hamas's terrorism into perspective?
