Subject: Immunity from Criticism
March 16, 2001
It is hearetning to see someone, Mr.
W.Dalrymple, March 16, challenging the preposterous stance of Conrad Black,
Barbara Amiel and other Israeli supporters who, through intimidation and
innuendo, attempt to prevent free-thinking people from challenging Israel's
policies of brutal oppression, violation of human rights of Palestinians, racism
and continuing defiance of international law and the UN Charter.
While it is perfectly legitimate to criticise
the policies of the British, American, Canadian and any other government in the
world, it is not, we are told, allowed to criticise the policies of the state of
Israel. It is baffling to understand how has Israel acquired this unique immunity
from criticism that no other
nation is allowed.
