The recent letter to the editor "Palestinian Authority," written by Harold Turner, begs for a response. If he were truly informed, he would realize that international laws have never given Israel the right to abuse Palestinian rights as they do. His concern is that Israel is being forced to give up Israeli land.
I have recently traveled to Israel and to the West Bank area, and have seen the miles of 27-foot walls, the Israeli secured roads, and the Israeli settlements that divide and encroach on Palestinian Land. From security, to land, to water rights, Israel is consistently violating the rights of the Palestinian people.
When we all do honest and rigorous research, we realize that Israel should not violate the international laws regarding the land and the people of this area.
