A Collective Arab Rasberry

Dear Sir

Last July, according to your report yesterday, (“Israel will continue to build schools in the West Bank Sa’ar tells British MPs”) Gordon Brown, then Britain’s Prime Minister, backed the settlement freeze because he felt “there would be a response in the Arab world”.

Less than a fortnight ago Vice President Hillary Clinton reiterated the same feelings. But why ask Israel to halt its perfectly legal right to build in Judea and Samaria, when a quick whip round by his Foreign Minister would have produced a 100 per cent Arab raspberry?

Sincerely

Jock L. Falkson
