I write in total support of Ian Greenhalgh's letter on Tuesday.

For some reason, Israel has been allowed to cynically ignore the United Nations in their criticism of Israel's treatment of the Palestinian people.

Speaking out against a country's abhorrent treatment of another nations' people does not count as anti-Semitism but this has been used as a convenient smokescreen by the Tory establishment to label the Labour Party as 'institutionally anti-Semitic".

I too do not condone some of the actions of the Palestinians, but since when did speaking up against the oppression and constant bombardment of a nation count as racist or anti-Semitic?

I too am proud to be a Labour Party member but I am not afraid to speak out against injustice.
