Should Israel be banned from sporting and cultural events such as the Olympics?

Letters: It's time to treat Israel the way we did apartheid South Africa
I AM writing in support of the views expressed by William Loneskie (Letters, March 18). The slaughter of innocent Palestinians continues, all in the name of "self-defence". Some 30,000 have been killed; thousands more left maimed and hundreds of children orphaned. Their homes have been flattened; their infrastructure destroyed and the helpless people are herded like cattle from one so-called "safe area" to another. Their plight is made worse by the shocking refusal of Israel to allow the supply of adequate food, water and medical supplies to reach them. Surely these are crimes against humanity?
