The Israel debate

Bianca van der Linden, Middle Pocket

Thank you Danny Wakil (Letters 22 August). Finally a voice that has the intellect, spirit of heart, and factual knowledge to bring some balanced discussion to the Middle East table.

Yes, this has indeed become a vexed and complicated issue, however, misinformation and misalignment does nothing to encourage a way forward to authentic consideration and tolerant thinking.

I support Mr Wakil in his efforts to address a more informed and balanced discussion.

    Thank you Bianca for your kind words. I simply became fed up with the weekly anti Israel rantings so am trying to shift people towards a healthier and less hate filled conversation

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
