Wrong help

MS Gould's letter last week told how, while in transit, she met two Israeli backpackers and engaged them in conversation.

She proceeded to express her criticism of what she perceived to be Israel's political shortcomings.

She then took offence at their response, describing the Israelis as being "conceited".

How would this lady feel if two strangers from another country approached her and then offered unsolicited advice regarding this country's political policies?

Israel needs our practical help now more than ever - but not the kind suggested by Ms Gould.
