Israel and its opponents

Sir -- I felt compelled to register my distaste for Eilis O'Hanlon's "analysis" article, "Israel a handy whipping boy for the Left" (Sunday Independent, March 7, 2010).
There were so many things wrong with the article that I cannot take the time to go through them all.
However, in brief I would like to say that the portrayal of Israel as a small, threatened country makes no mention of its illegal occupation of the West Bank and the blockade of Gaza, the continued building of illegal settlements and the constant destruction of Palestinian homes.
