Letters to the Editor: It is up to all of us to bring our politicians to book
Dr Farid al Qutob (Irish Independent, April 12) has his heart in the right place. He understands the cynical PR reasons for Donald Trump's bombing in Afghanistan (not "Eye-rak" as Mr Trump said in yet another faux pas), and he asserts, quite correctly and reasonably, that to succeed in this ideological battle we need to root out injustice, desperation and destitution.
To his credit, the good doctor continually tries to put his case across in your letters' page.
The pen might very well be mightier than the sword, but it is also true that ideas penned must be wielded in no uncertain fashion by the constituents of the elected.
