Subject: Interview with Israeli ambassador


July 17, 2007


Your interview, with the Israeli ambassador in the US, was lacking in substance and relevance.

The repeated ascription of terrorism to Palestinians is biased, as Israel created terrorism in the Middle East and its state terrorism is continuing against Palestinians and others. The question about the Bush statement about removing unauthorised outposts overlooks the fact that all Israeli settlements, in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, are illegal and in violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention, and all must be removed.

Throughout the interview there was no mention of the Israeli occupation of Palestinian and Syrian territory that has been allowed to stand for 40 years in defiance of international law and repeated Security Council resolutions.
