The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

Ger­shon Baskin (JC July 11) has boasted that Is­rael’s ex­tra­or­di­nary ex­change with Ha­mas for ab­ducted sol­dier Gi­lad Shalit would not have been pos­si­ble with­out him.

Many of us de­cried that mind­bog­glingly dis­pro­por­tion­ate ex­change for the high like­li­hood that the re­leased mur­der­ers would re-of­fend (and they have) and for its in­evitable en­cour­age­ment to abduct other Is­raelis.

But Mr Baskin now de­scribes Ha­mas lead­ers as “ir­re­spon­si­ble” and “crim­i­nals to their own people.”

Per­haps he should con­sider his own record, be­fore ac­cus­ing oth­ers? Andrew Rose­ma­rine Cavendish Rd, Sal­ford, Lancs
