There were no crimes against humanity in Gaza

While I agree with Edward Horgan (Letters, January 28) that “perpetrators of genocide are often not held to account”, his comment that “many people are justifiably opposed to crimes against humanity committed by Israel against Palestinians” is disturbing.

I presume he is referring to the recent conflict in Gaza, and the Palestinians’ claim that 2,000 civilians were killed. Colonel Richard Kemp, former commander of British forces in Afghanistan, has said that the proportion of civilian casualties in Gaza (nowhere near 2,000, unless there were no non-civilian deaths) was unbelievably low and the envy of military commanders throughout the world, so their claim is hardly credible.

Mr Morgan has fallen into the trap of accepting Palestinian propaganda.
