Why is it that the whole world and the international media are so scared of Israel? It is a crying shame that they refrain from making forceful criticism of this rogue state. Some Palestinians have started living in caves. Not only that. More that 10 thousand of them are in jails without trial, some of them languishing for more than 30 years. Palestinians are denied drinking water and their homes have been taken away. Why the world is silent? -MR. ZAFAR ISRAR, Karachi. Decmber 07 300 Recently Sohail Abbas became the first hockey player to score 300 goals in the history of international hockey. It's a great achievement and Sohail Abbas has made Pakistan proud. I congratulate him on behalf of all the people of Pakistan. Different hockey associations, print and electronic media should also honour and pay tribute the legend Sohail Abbas. -MUBASHIR MAHMOOD, Karachi
