The Editor,

The Globe & Mail.


Dear Editor;


Mark MacKinnon's report on the state of starvation, famine and deprivation that the Palestinians, under illegal Israeli occupation, face ["A feast that tastes like famine" Sept.30], should open the eyes of the international community to this tragedy that must be brought to an end. Messrs Harper, Bush and Blair, evidently take pride in this inhuman and catastrophic achievement, against an innocent people.


It is time that the principles of humanity and international law are taken note of.


Yours sincerely,


Ismail Zayid, MD.
