Lack of 'ethics' in history of Israel

Kevin Myers says "The founding fathers of Israel saw it as an ethical state" (Irish Independent, March 2).

Has he forgotten the 1946 bombing by the Irgun of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem when 91 people were killed and 46 injured? This gallant action was led by that great pacifist and statesman Menachem Begin.

Has he forgotten the massacre of Deir Yassin in 1948 when 107 men, women and children were murdered by Israeli forces led by that gallant soldier Moshe Dayan?

The massacre of Palestinian refugees, again men women and children, in the Sabra and Shatila camps in Beirut in 1982 by Christian militia urged on by the Israel Defence Force cannot by any means be called ethical.

Nor can the attack in recent years on Gaza when 1,500 people, many children, were killed by Israeli forces using phosphorous shells.
