Don't blame the many for sins of a few

I am dismayed to read an unrepentant Julie Burchill again using her page to expound her ugly views (Comment, November 4).

Why should a Palestinian Mufti of Jerusalem courting Hitler be any more offensive than the Hungarian Zionist leader Kastner who collaborated with the Nazis while turning a blind eye to the deportation of thousands of Jews under his watch?

Just as Jews should remain untainted by the actions of the latter, why does Burchill attempt to taint Palestinians by the actions of the former?

I know some Muslims are murderers and I am also aware that some Palestinians are terrorists, but accusing Palestinians or Muslims, or gays for that matter, because of the actions or words of a few among them is morally repugnant.
