Mr Burston is using a very dishonest tactic. Using his daughter, essentially, to express a political view. What if a Palestinian man had written an article saying "My small daughter was killed by the IDF. She was one of over 1400 Palestinian children killed by Israel in the last 10 years". Should that man's dead daughter have less political weight because her father was not a major writer for a large paper? The phrase "Death to Israel" is puffy rhetoric used by idiots. It is far more useful to Zionists than anti Zionists, as this article, and many others, show. Never mind that both sides use similar rhetoric though the Israeli words are more cultured.
