CBC Radio, The Sunday Edition.
I listened with great interest to the positive informative interview that Michael Enwright had with Sam Bahour, last Sunday.
Sam Bahour gave an accurate picture of the oppressive conditions that the Palestinian people are made to endure under the brutal illegal Israeli occupation that has been allowed to continue for 40 years, in defiance of international law and repeated Security Council resolutions. The practices used under this occupation include extra-judicial assassination, torture, demolition of thousands of homes, denial of health care, daily humiliation and expropriation of property for the creation of illegal colonies [settlements]. These practices are in violation of virtually every article of the Fourth Geneva convention, and are defined by international law as war crimes.
The conditions, described by Mr bahour, are confirmed by international human rights bodies, like Amnesty International, and Israeli human rights groups like B'Tselem.
We thank you for allowing our Canadian people to hear the facts as they are.
