Washington Report on Middle East Affairs;Dec2005, Vol. 24 Issue 9, p51
This article presents several letters written by several readers which were published in various publications. It is informed that in 1948, Israelis forcibly removed 750,000 Palestinians from their homes in the initial formation of the Israeli state. Then in 1967, it occupied the rest of what used to be called Palestine and subjected what was left of the Palestinian people to a process of continuing disenfranchisement from what was left of their lands. It is reported that Israelis have been continuously and illegally building settlements of grand dimensions ever since.
