I HAVE just read your front-page article (27 March) about British Jews snubbing Robin Cook over his Israel visit. I do feel it is about time that some person in a position of influence puts Israel in its place and I am glad that Robin Cook had the wisdom to do it.

How can British Jews talk of peace when Israel persistently bullies Palestinians (with the world turning a blind eye) by infringing on the no-mans-land between the two countries, by building permanent settlements on it. If Israel was really interested in peace it would not be invoking problems, and it would be nice to see "leading British Jews" being a little more objective, and in so doing really support the peace initiative.
