Dear Mr. Mansbridge:
In your many interviews with Israeli politicians
and settlers, we failed to hear any mention of The Occupation. Shimon Peres
spoke of concessions and Israeli security. Since when has the return of a small
part of illegally occupied territory, i.e. stolen property, to its rightful
owners, been considered a concession by the illegal occupier?
The settler in Gaza spoke of the trees and the home
he built and had to evacuate, but was never asked on whose land did he
build his home.
We applaud your lucidity but the Canadian public
deserve a little more elucidation of the facts and perhaps emphasis that
security for Israelis and Palestinians can only be assured if the
illegal occupation of Palestinian land is completely
and unconditionally terminated, in compliance with international
