Dear Editor:
              Re:{ " Sharon threatens unilateral steps unless peace plan proceeds soon", Dec. 19.}
It is extraordinary that the arrogant Sharon's threats and edefiance of international law are rewarded by praise from Canadian Foreign Minister, Mr. Bill Graham, for the mere mention of the road map, despite Sharon's 14 amendments to the said road map.
Should there not be a universal demand for Israel to comply with international law and terminate completely and unconditionally its illegal occupation of Palestinian territory, that has been allowed to stand for 36 years in defiance of repeated Security Council resolutions? How long must Israel be allowed to remain above international law?
Yours sincerely,
Ismail Zayid, M.D.
President, Canada Palestine Association.
