Subject: LUSH is ENCOURAGING PLO Terrorism

Dear Ms. Jansson,

I have received your form response which does not address the issues I raised.

Your pretentions to be supporting "human rights" are obviously insincere given your selective interest in the matter. Have you considered that Israelis have human rights too? I have not seen one mention of Israeli human rights in anything you have written. Israelis have the right to defend themselves against attack by PLO terrorists. They have the right to live in their homeland in peace.

By overlooking the PLO's terrorism and rewarding them with your support you are encouraging them to continue their criminal violence. The One World Project never even mentions PLO rockets, mortars, suicide bombers, cold-blooded murderers etc., but falsely and irresponsibly accuses Israel of a "crime against humanity". Your bland statement that LUSH "does not support violence" apparently condemns Israel for defending itself.

Furthermore your statement that "the onus must be on the dominant force Israel" has no foundation. What has superior military power got to do with right and wrong? Is the onus on Britain to give in to Al Qaeda because it is the dominant force? In reality the PLO have many advantages. They have 21 Arab countries supporting them, Iran, and other Moslem countries, and the very biased UN. Not to mention the oil billions, and the anti-Israel and often anti-semitic media. Now add to that the prejudice and ignorance of a company like yours.

Your misrepresenting of the facts and your intransigence toward the many people who have complained convince me that the only way to respond is to stop buying your products and encourage others to do the same.
