Letter: Israel Furphies Categories: Israel, Media/ Academia, Palestinians, Updates     Author: Jamie Hyams

Tony Walker ("Israel poll threatens Labor peace" 14-15 March) perpetuates a myth about the Israeli/Palestinian dispute - that the Netanyahu government is "committed to an expansion of Jewish settlements."
