The Australian:  “Stone Cold Justice” by John Lyons, 26 November 2011

Dear Sir,

I wish to commend you for publishing the article written by John Lyons entitled ” Stone Cold Justice”. It seems sad but true that most media outlets do not have the courage to print such pieces for fear that they may offend the Israeli Government.

The writer pointed out that the treatment of the Palestinian children would be clearly in breach of Israeli law were that treatment to be meted out to Jewish Israeli children.
It’s an indictment against the Israeli government that it permits and condones breaches of humanitarian law, and international covenants and laws such as those related to the Rights of the Child and the Geneva Conventions ( the duty of occupying powers).

I am glad that those Australians who get to read this article have an opportunity to consider the plight not only of these children but of all Palestinians under Israeli occupation.
Thanks again for publishing the article. And thanks to the writer, John Lyons.
