The Editor,

Dear Editor:
Congratulations to Sid Ryan { "Slurs will not silence us" July 7} for stating the facts with courage and integrity.
Anti-Semitism is abhorent, but criticism of Israeli oppresive policies, in the Occupied Territories, must not be allowed to be used, by Israel's apologists, as a mechanism for providing Israel with a protective blanket from Criticism. Israel is not above international law.
Israel's apologists should call on Israel to comply with international law and terminate completely its illegal occupation of Palestinian territory, Thus, security for Israelis and palestinians can be assured.
