I wish to congratulate The CBC and Neil
Macdonald on the humane and perceptive presentation of the real issues facing
the Palestinian people under the oppressive occupation they are living under.
Mr. Macdonald expressed eloquently the nature of the Jewish settlers' style and
opulence in their illegal settlements, in the Gaza strip, contrasted with the
misery and oppression under which the Palestinian refugees live, having already
been uprooted from their homes and land 53 years ago.
I think, for this touch of humanity, Mr.
Macdonald and the CBC deserve the gratitude of all those who claim to care for
justice and humanity, so that they may understand better what drives people to
resist such oppressive occupation.
