My name is William James Carson, a brother of the late entertainer Frank Carson. I am in the process of completing a family tree. To the best of my knowledge we have relations by the name of Thompson who live or have lived in the Shankill Road district of Belfast.
Even with a heart of stone, one could not fail to be moved at the killing of innocent men and women, but especially children, in the Israel onslaught on the people of Gaza.

STRIKES are, sadly, often the only means by which employees can obtain better pay and conditions or defend existing conditions (News, July 11). Appeals to the good nature of employers invariably fall upon deaf ears.
IS the ascendancy of Isis not the perfect remedy for the West's predicament in Syria, where its strategic role in supporting the terrorist opposition and the need to increase that support due to dogged resistance from the Assad regime?
I HOLD no brief for the actions of Rolf Harris, but vindictive media treatment and claims that a six-year sentence for an 84-year-old is too lenient are alarming.
IT'S interesting that the Orange Order will parade in Edinburgh the week before the Scottish referendum, with Northern Ireland members taking part.
ISRAEL refers to Palestinians who take armed action against the Israeli forces as "terrorists". But Palestinians are reacting against an army of occupation and siege.
IT is no surprise that Hamas rejected Egypt's peace proposal. Hamas cannot have peace with Israel because its strategic culture calls for a constant conflict.

ISOBEL Hutchinson (Write Back, July 16) criticises the failure to "reduce the number of animals used in research" in response to the Government's annual release of the animal research statistics.
NIALL Crozier's attempt to link Ugandan poverty with sporting stars' earnings (Biting Back, July 16) was puerile.
RANDHIR Bains (Write Back, July 16) is far too optimistic that a peaceful solution of the Palestinian problem could be found by a "land swap, whereby the Palestinians cede their claims to the larger Israeli settlements, in return for which Israel would surrender territory in predominantly Arab areas."
