    Hamas' terror is dwarfed by Israel's [Letter]

    If Israel is defeated, America will be next [Letter]
    The opposing views on the Gaza conflict offered by two recent commentators compel me to respond to some important facts left out of the discussion by those sympathetic to Hamas ("Israel's unjust war," July 31, and "Hamas' unjust war," Aug. 1). First, to...

  • Where do their loyalties lie? [Letter]
