Resolution terms

Pointless to deal with every distortion in John Pilger's bilious attack on Israel (30 October). But any New Statesman reader curious about his reliability ought to compare his claim that UN Security Council Resolution 242 calls for Israel's "immediate" withdrawal from "the" occupied territories with what the resolution actually says. The text can be located in a trice on the internet. What a pity Pilger didn't bother.
