Subject: It is the occupation...
The Globe & Mail
In your editoial, ["Out of Gaza's chaos" Sept 20],
you mount a massive attack on the Palestine Authority[PA] nd the Palestinian
people. Simultaneously you shower great praise on Sharon and the Israelis who,
you state: "made significant withdrawal from territory seized in war."
There is no mention of the fact that Gaza costitutes a mere 4% of the territory
occupied illegally, as a result of a war of aggression waged by Israel in
June 1967. You appear to imply that territory seized in war, may be justifiably
held by the occupier. Security Council resolution # 242 emphasises, in its
preamble,: " the inadmissibility of acquistion of territory by
Israeli occupation of occupied Palestinian
territory is illegal and stands in defiance of international law and repeated
Security Council resolutions. Complete and unconditional withdrawal is a
fundmental requirement for complete termination of this illegal and oppressive
occupation, in compliance with international law.
