Half-truths are unfair on Israel

I COULD hardly wait to read the venomous response of the so-called Friends of Palestine, who might more accurately be called Enemies of Israel, to that country's ambassador's letter (Irish Independent, April 27).

I was, therefore, not surprised by those letters of PB McAleer (Irish Independent April 30) and Ken Foley (Irish Independent, April 29) with what are at best described as revisionist half-truths designed to malign Israel.

If only an ambassador of one of its Arab neighbours could have truthfully written something similar about their countries without it being patently obvious to be, unlike Dr Evrony's letter, completely unsupported by reality.
