The Editor,
The Halifax Herald.
Dear Editor:
The statements by Ken Whitehead [Letter:"Biased views"June 9] are baseless. My views,on the Israeli practices in the occupied territories, are accurate and are corroborated by all international human rights bodies, including Israeli human rights groups.
I have lived the Palestine/Israel conflict all my life and saw what crimes Israel has committed against myself and my people. I saw the destruction of my own home and my entire village, Beit Nuba, together with neighbouring villages, by the Israeli armed forces in 1967, and our eviction from our homeland.
I challenge Mr. Whitehead, or anybody else, to show a single statement of mine on this conflict that is not accurate.
Yours sincerely,
Ismail Zayid.
