Telling it like it is on anti-Semitism

PAUL Kelly (Letters, February 13) is concerned that the misuse of the term anti-Semitism is an insult to 'responsible' critics of Israel like Colonel Desmond Travers, of the UN fact-finding mission on the Gaza conflict.

Not even Hamas denies it rained hundreds of rockets on Israel in the month before the Gaza operation in January 2009.
