  • Criticism of Israel has merit [Letter]

  • Israel's anti-Semitic critics [Letter]

    Letter writer Janice Kelly claims that "those of us who are opposing Israeli apartheid are being called anti-Semites" ("Criticism of Israel has merit," Feb. 16). Of course, this fallaciously assumes that there is such a thing as Israeli apartheid....

    Palestinians aren't the victims [Letter]
    You published yet another misleading letter which claimed that the so-called "Palestinians" are the "actual victims" ("American Studies Association debate ignores the real victims," March 13). There are 1 million Israeli citizens in the south of Israel...
  • The nuclear deal with Iran [Editorial]

    The nuclear deal with Iran  [Editorial]
    Since the Iran nuclear deal was announced late Saturday, the criticism has been predictable. Israel's leadership isn't happy; neither is Saudi Arabia's. And there's a customary skepticism in Congress, particularly from Republicans, the most outlandish...
