  • There's no moral equivalency between the Israeli and Palestinian 'narratives'

    James W. Dale makes a welcome point in his commentary about the divestment campaign against Israel ("Choosing to stay engaged: Anti-Israel measures like divestment are not the best way to seek justice for Palestinians," May 4). It is, as he says, vital...
  • Israeli opposition to Palestinian state is unwavering

    The Rev. James W. Dale suggests that "The harder way, I believe, is the way of continuing to demand that both sides must come to the table if there is ever to be a lasting peace with justice" ("Choosing to stay engaged," May 4). This in contrast to...
  • Hamas will never accede to peace with Israel

    The Sun editorial "Mr. Abbas' mission" (Feb. 13) is a triumph of wishful thinking over analysis. Its self-contradictions and omissions include: •Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas "would have to exercise the kind of statesmanship that has...
  • Baltimore family travels to Israel as an ancestor is honored

    A respected Palestinian physician established and ran his own hospital in Jaffa nearly 80 years ago, when the Mediterranean seaport was the cultural and commercial center of Palestine. The 55-bed stone building originally bore the name of Dr. Fuad I....
  • U.S. must veto Palestinian statehood

    U.S. must veto Palestinian statehood
    Israel and the Palestinians are on a collision course this week, as the government of Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas prepares to unilaterally seek United Nations recognition of an independent Palestinian state. If Mr. Abbas goes through with...
  • No reason to deny recognition to Palestine

    I was disappointed with the genuflection of your editorial opposing U.N. recognition of an independent Palestinian state ("A painful veto," Sept. 19). The U.S. should support membership in the U.N. for Palestine. What are The Sun and President Obama...
  • U.S. is wrong on Palestine

    U.S. is wrong on Palestine
    This week, the Palestinians will petition the U.N. Security Council for admission as a full member state. Admitting Palestine would be a nightmare for Israel and a serious problem for the United States. Nonetheless, President Barack Obama made the wrong...
  • An independent Palestine would be just another rogue state

    Reader Christopher Boardman should check his facts before he writes that "Palestine has had its land stolen without compensation for years" ("No reason to deny recognition to Palestine," Sept. 20). What land? The United Nations awarded Israel part of...
  • Jerusalem belongs to the Jews

    Like most such dialogues, the recent discussions about Israel and Palestine at the U.N. ignore international treaty law ("Bid for statehood may end," Sept. 21). Jews were given legal and political rights to what is now called Palestine in 1920, when...
  • A U.S. veto of Palestinian statehood would uphold international law

    I disagree with Ariel Ilan Roth's op-ed "U.S. is Wrong on Palestine" (Sept. 21). I will make a purely legal argument why the U.S. should veto Palestine's unilateral attempt for statehood in the United Nations. The following information is from the...
  • Shalit release: A flawed deal between sworn enemies

    Both Israel and Hamas are claiming victory in the prisoner swap that will free more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners from Israeli jails in exchange for Sgt. First Class Gilad Shalit, an Israeli soldier kidnapped by militants five years ago and held...
  • Stripping UNESCO funds over Palestine is a mistake

    The U.S. sacrifices its own best interests with punitive laws that require defunding of vital U.N. groups who dare to recognize Palestine as a state ("UNESCO vote on Palestine shuts off funding from U.S.," Nov. 1). There can be no clearer example of the...
