In a March 9th letter to the Editor, Calgary Herald letter writer Orest Slepokura hurls around false accusations of Israeli collective punishment of Palestinians and attempts to draw loathsome parallels with the Nazi Holocaust. HonestReporting Canada letter writer Vicky Tobianah responds to Mrs. Slepokura by clarifying for her the difference between terrorism and self-defence and by reminding her of Israel’s duty to heed the major lesson of the Holocaust: “Never again”.
