Inaccuracies in Kevin's diatribe

Kevin Myers believes it's "clear enough" that "if you oppose the right of Israel to exist . . . you want the Jews of Israel either dispersed or killed" (Irish Independent, August 20).

This mischievous formulation deliberately ignores the actual aims of those who support Palestinian rights: the attainment of a situation whereby Israeli Jews and Palestinians -- be they Muslim, Christian, or indeed Jewish -- can live side by side in peace and justice.

However, those expecting rational and factually-based arguments from Mr Myers should ponder the inaccuracies in his diatribe against the Irish artists who have signed a pledge to boycott Israel.
