Finally, some balance in Mideast debate

YET again in his column (Irish Independent, August 20), Kevin Myers shows the ability to provide valuable insights and apply reasoned analysis to Middle East issues.
Unlike the visceral double-standard of the Israel haters -- who invariably try to have us believe that Israel can do nothing right and that its enemies can do nothing wrong -- Mr Myers tries to be truly even-handed in his approach.
His balanced approach is infinitely more helpful as it allows people to see both sides of the conflict rather than being bombarded loudly and frequently by those who wish simply to attempt to demonise Israel by slurring it with it all sorts of despicable labels.
