  • Israel did not target civilians in Gaza

    The op-ed "Palestinians Betrayed by Judge Goldstone" (April 18) by Laila El-Haddad, omits and/or distorts many pertinent facts. For example, why did the Israeli military forces embark on Operation Cast Lead? For eight years, the terrorists in Gaza...

  • Israel and the Palestinians

    Your editorial bemoaning reconciliation between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority as complicating, if not dooming, the Mideast peace process misses a key point ("Best of enemies," April 30): Hamas is a virulently anti-Semitic organization that hates...
  • Best U.S. foreign policy move: Bring troops home

    The Sun's coverage of turmoil in the Osama bin Laden raid, including the profile of Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger ("Keeping our secrets safe," May 4), was well done. I found especially mirthful Rep. Ruppersberger's rather quaint notion that all future...

  • Palestinian protesters deserve credit for bravery

    I appreciate your coverage of the many brave Palestinians who demanded their right to democracy this week ("Protesters enter Israel; 12 die," May 16). It was inevitable that the Arab Spring would come to Israel. And it was just as inevitable that Israeli...
