Benny Morris a Bigot
To the Editor:
I am amazed that the Times would select Benny Morris to write on
Sharon's Legacy. Benny Morris is a bigot who was quoted in an Israeli
newspaper as saying "There are circumstances in history that justify
ethnic cleansing. That is what Zionism faced. A Jewish state would not
have come into being without the uprooting of 700,000 Palestinians.
Therefore it was necessary to uproot them. . . It was necessary to
cleanse the hinterland and cleanse the border areas and cleanse the
main roads.". Sharon's legacy is better written by a Palestinian or a
Lebanese who suffered so much at his bloody hands.
