The headline is for the letter that tops the Independent letters page today from Jocelyn Hurndall, mother of Tom Hurndall who was killed whilst shielding Palestinian children on their way to school. Here's the letter: When I read the headline I couldn't know what the story was behind it as Israel has done so much to show its contempt for human life lately.
The Independent and the Guardian both carry articles detailing the evidence of Israeli war crimes and a commenter drew my attention to an article by Christopher Hitchens in Slate suggesting that rabbinical extremism should rule out American aid to Israel that might be used for settlement activity, "even indirectly". Does he mean that if it can be proven that American aid was used for settlement activity then it should be stopped but if not it can continue? He doesn't actually say but it is nice to see him, as another comment said, trying to leave the sinking ship that is the world's and even western opinion of the racist war criminals of the State of Israel.
