Dear Editor:
 
It is highly irregular for our cabinet ministers and MP's to participate in functions organised by the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs { your report " Israeli-backed event draws top Liberals" Jan. 8} in support of Israeli government policies, that are clearly in violation of international law, including illegal occupation of territories in defiance of repeated Security Council resolutions and The Fourth Geneva Convention.
 
To compound this irregularity, it is surely unacceptable that our taxpayers' dollars should be used to fund this activity. This outrageous activity should not be allowed.
 
Yours sincerely,
 
Ismail Zayid
