Letter: One-sided view of expulsions

Sir: Daniel Machover and others (letter, 30 December), on behalf of Lawyers for Palestinian Human Rights, go to great lengths to show how Israel has evidently violated the Fourth Geneva Convention in deporting Palestinian terrorists.

As far as I am aware, there was no reaction at all from this organisation to the expulsion of some 300,000 Palestinians from Kuwait last year or to the slaughter of a further 30,000 of them by the Syrian occupying forces in Lebanon. Neither has there been any anger expressed at the many hundreds of Palestinian Arabs who have been slaughtered by their own people in Judea and Samaria (the West Bank) and the Gaza Strip because of alleged 'collaboration' with Israel.

The self-righteous, legalistic criticism by your correspondents is totally selective and one-sided, and takes no account of the brutality of the Hamas organisation which the deportees represent.

Yours faithfully,
