    Best of enemies
    The Israeli-Palestinian conflict underwent another evolution this week when the Fatah-backed Palestinian National Authority, which controls the West Bank, and Hamas, the radical Islamic movement that rules the Gaza Strip, announced they would put aside...
  • Two views on bin Laden's death

    Consider these two comments if you want to know who is our ally and who is our enemy. Hamas, which controls the Gaza strip and regularly fires rockets into neighboring Israel, has condemned the U.S. killing of Osama bin Laden and said it "mourned him...
  • Israel unwilling to restrain itself

    The Sun editorializes ("Best of Enemies" April 30) that the Fatah-Hamas decision to work together may doom peace-keeping efforts undertaken by the U.S. But the matter of recently renewed Jerusalem settlements by Israel and the U.S. response must not be...
  • 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...
  • Movie review: 'Miral'

    Movie review: 'Miral'
    Julian Schnabel broadens his canvas for his fourth film, "Miral," turning his lens on multiple protagonists and a half-century of Middle East strife. On the face of it a bold undertaking, the Jerusalem-set feature plays out with an awkward staidness,...
  • Palestinians betrayed by Judge Goldstone

    On April 3, Judge Richard Goldstone, chairman of the fact-finding mission on the Gaza conflict of 2009, published an op-ed in The Washington Post reconsidering one of the allegations in the report: that Israel intentionally targeted Palestinian...

    Republicans need to do better
    As one who worked in and around a few presidential campaigns, I'm always troubled and honestly quite alarmed when potential presidential candidates ask staff, focus groups, and tea leaves what their message should be and who in essence, they are. As a...
  • 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...

    Peabody's Amit Peled to make Kennedy Center debut
    "It's definitely a milestone for me," said cellist Amit Peled about his debut at the Kennedy Center on Sunday, presented by the Washington Performing Arts Society. "When I saw who else was on the WPAS season brochure, I freaked out." WPAS President and...
  • Two centuries later, group seeks to bring home sailors killed off the shores of Tripoli

    Two centuries later, group seeks to bring home sailors killed off the shores of Tripoli
    For the American sailors off Tripoli — five of them from Maryland — it was a suicide mission: Sail the small ship heavy with explosives in among the enemy fleet, set the blast to go off in 15 minutes, jump into lifeboats and get as far away as...
  • Sun headline gets it backward on Israel/Islamic Jihad confrontation

    The Sun recently ran an article titled "Israel bombs Islamic Jihad base, killing 5." I must object to your method of reporting. The article gives the impression that Israel started bombing the base with no reason. It is only in paragraphs two and three...
  • Sen. Cardin needs to drop uncritical support of Israel

    Your Maryland Politics blog "Cardin: Obama should seek authority on Libya" (June 27) describes a speech that Sen. Ben Cardin gave to the Baltimore Council on Foreign Affairs Monday evening. Senator Cardin spent most of his speech praising Israel and...
