The attack by Jonathan Kay, of the National Post, on Neil Macdonald's reportimg from the Middle East is baseless. It is part and parcel of the campaign by Israel, and its unquestioning apologists, to disallow any reports that are critical of Israeli policies and war crimes in its illegal oppressive occupation in the occupied Palestinian territories and Lebanon.
Neil Macdonald's reports are fair and balanced and the Canadian public should be allowed to see and hear a measure of what is going on in this tortured land.
