Arnold's views on Gaza questionable
Published 03/08/2011 | 05:00
Bruce Arnold has a strange idea of "balance" when it comes to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. For him, it means erasing the Palestinian people from existence.
He refers to the Israeli offensive against Gaza at the beginning of 2009 as "the Hamas bombardment". No mention that more than 1,300 Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces in the space of three weeks, while 13 Israelis died in the same period.
He summarises the issue as "the legitimate place of the democratic state of Israel between the River Jordan and the Mediterranean Sea".
