After the evil attacks on Jews in Israel on October 7, you were very vocal in your condemnation. Now, with Israel’s war on Hamas which has thus far been effective but is causing much loss of Palestinian life, your condemnation is equally vocal.

I therefore wish to pose two questions to you and your team of brilliant columnists. First, to achieve the obviously essential objective of destroying Hamas, what should Israel do differently?

Second, even more important to me as a Jew, do you not think it’s time for the FM and its much-heralded writers to forcefully and consistently expose and attack the huge wave of rising anti-Semitism in both South Africa and elsewhere? Or is this merely a Jewish problem?
