SIR – Bob Storey is a known anti-Israeli. Okay, that is his problem.

He conveniently forgets that President Gamal Abdel Nasser closed the straits of Tiran to Israeli shipping, blockading all imports to the port of Eilat in 1967 which was a declaration of war. Israel replied. What is his problem?

Would he be hopping mad if Israel had been occupied by Egypt?

When the Arabs of Jordan expelled all Jews from East Jerusalem in 1948, including my relatives, and burned all 27 synagogues this is never mentioned. When 850,000 thousand of my co-religionists were expelled from Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Algeria, Libya, Trans-Jordan, and etc., this does not bother him.

It sure bothers me but we look to the future and hope for better times. The Arab Palestinians look backwards and have no future.

Time for a big change and acceptance by their own people just like we accept ours.

Yours sincerely,

Maerton Davis,
