Reeply to Jim Sillars

Jim Sillars says that Israel is not fighting for its survival (Letters, 23 October). It most certainly is. The Hamas Charter demands the extinction of Israel so that it can claim the Jews’ ancient homeland for Islam. Support for the 7th October invasion is widespread throughout the Islamic world including among Muslims in this country. The Middle East and North Africa region is home to 315 million Muslims. Iran supports Hamas ideologically and financially and aspires to possess a nuclear bomb. Israel left Gaza in 2005. The madrases of the Palestinian authority groom tomorrow’s jihads. A two state solution will not guarantee Israel’s security. The issue is the truth and falsehood of religious claims and no-one want to address them.
