Israel, Hamas and Gaza


Sir, – Will The Irish Times now be publishing front-page photographs of women and children killed in the latest Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip? – Yours, etc,

Sir, – Allow me to respond to Dominic Carroll (July 11th), when he writes: “it’s ludicrous to equate the deadly Israeli military offensive with the largely ineffective Hamas campaign”.

I would say that it doesn’t matter whether a missile came from a “deadly” or “ineffective” campaign, you are wounded or dead and not going to question the effectiveness of a bomb or otherwise. Indiscriminate aerial bombardment is nothing short of criminal, full stop. I agree with that opinion, which leaves no room for excuses one way or the other. – Yours, etc,
