The following letter appears today in the Melbourne Age:
Dear Antony Loewenstein, having confessed that you are a good Australian Jew, may I suggest, that before you condemn the Israeli Government’s “grossly disproportionate military assault on Gaza”, take yourself and your 110 colleagues to Israel and spend a day or two in Sderot. After all, the “hand-made rockets cause relatively few Israeli casualties”. You will only need 15 seconds to run for cover when the rockets leave Gaza.
Would you sleep better at night if the Israeli casualties were to be in the hundreds?
Michael Kay, South Yarra
