Burchill's Israel plug sickening

Published 28/02/2011

Julie Burchill's plug for Israel is nothing short of embarrassing (Comment, February 25).

The theme this week? How she can't abide any Briton travelling to an Arab country because this tells her they do so to avoid Israel.

So nothing to do with the thousands of years of history, art, and culture these locations offer?

I'm sick of how sickened she is by all of us who object to Israel's past and present policies and practices against Palestinians.
