SIR - So, Bradford Labour MP Imran Hussain has resigned from his shadow ministerial post in protest at his Party leader's refusal to back a ceasefire in the conflict in Gaza (T&A, November 9).

Now in an ideal world we would all like to see a ceasefire, but that would not currently answer the big question.

Perhaps Mr Hussain would like to explain to us all what should happen to ensure that the terrorist organisation Hamas is not in a position to regroup and then continue its murderous assaults, bearing in mind that it still wants to see the total destruction of the State of Israel.

That would certainly be very illuminating coming from him.
