    Hamas' casualty figures can't be trusted [Letter]
    Your recent report on the conflict in Gaza alternately misstates the facts, omits them or misrepresents them ("Israel continues Gaza strikes," Aug. 3). Your statement that the fighting broke out on July 8 with Israeli airstrikes would lead the...
  • What more can Israel do to limit civilian casualties? [Letter]

    What more can Israel do to limit civilian casualties? [Letter]
    I notice that, in this most recent conflict between Israel and Hamas, there are widespread calls for Israel to "limit civilian casualties." President Barack Obama, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, and many other leaders of the free world repeat this...

    It will take a historic breakthrough for Hamas to agree to give up its arms [Letter]
    I am a Jewish American and a lifelong and committed Zionist who wholeheartedly agrees with Caroline Poplin's recent commentary ("A costly victory for Israel," Aug. 7). However, it requires some minor corrections. First, most Middle Eastern observers...
  • Hamas' terror is dwarfed by Israel's [Letter]

    Hamas' terror is dwarfed by Israel's [Letter]
    We read of Israel describing another "terror attack" against its citizens, but why do Americans conclude that Israel itself doesn't practice terror? Because Israeli military spokesmen say it doesn't? ("Digger rams Jerusalem Bus," August 4). Contrary...
  • Making concessions to Hamas will only embolden it [Letter]

    Making concessions to Hamas will only embolden it [Letter]
    In "Israel's costly victory" (Aug. 8), Caroline Poplin writes that "to prevent resumption of the rockets, Israel is going to have to make concessions to Hamas." What Ms. Poplin doesn't see is that making concessions with evil never works. England tried...
  • Uncritical supporters of Israel are apologists for war crimes [Letter]

    Uncritical supporters of Israel are apologists for war crimes [Letter]
    Commentators Jason Blavatt and Ellen Ginsberg Simon point out that "Hamas is striking out to gain the world's attention" in order to "hurt Israel's image by depicting her as a bloodthirsty violator of international norms" ("Hamas' unjust war," July 31)....
  • Thriller author Fesperman explores capacity of drone warfare, spying

    Thriller author Fesperman explores capacity of drone warfare, spying
    It was the eeriness of the situation that struck Baltimore writer Dan Fesperman. Drone pilots for the Air Force would spend weeks watching what amounted to a real-life silent movie of a small town thousands of miles away — all the while plotting the...
  • Sean Hannity on Israel: A barometer on how silly, lost and shameless cable 'news' has become

    Sean Hannity on Israel: A barometer on how silly, lost and shameless cable 'news' has become
    I only have 2 million other better things to write about. But after 24 hours of waiting for someone else to unload on Sean Hannity, the Fox News host who defines political stooge, I have to say something. I held off when this GOP tool ran around on...
  • In Gaza, the U.S. faces a choice between supporting a faithful ally or a terrorist gang [Letter]

    In Gaza, the U.S. faces a choice between supporting a faithful ally or a terrorist gang [Letter]
    In his demand that not only should the U.S. end further aid to Israel, but that Hamas also should be given free access to shipments into Gaza, letter writer Cassidy Regan overlooks the realities of the conflict between Hamas and Israel ("Cardin,...

    Palestinian death toll can't be swept under the rug by Israel's apologists [Letter]
    As someone who protested the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan, I read with sadness your report on the Maryland National Guard's scheduled departure for that country ("Md. National Guard making final deployment to Afghanistan," Aug. 6). The money wasted in...
  • Hamas only understands strength [Letter]

    Hamas only understands strength [Letter]
    It is obvious that letter writer Bruce Knauff does not understand the Middle East and how it works ("Conflict over Gaza is one-sided," July 16). He probably has never been outside of Maryland. In that part of the world the man with the biggest gun is...
  • Baltimore native-turned-Israel Defense Forces volunteer wounded in Gaza

    Baltimore native-turned-Israel Defense Forces volunteer wounded in Gaza
    A local high school graduate who joined the Israel Defense Forces last year has been wounded in Gaza, his father said Monday. Jordan Low, a 19-year-old sharpshooter in Israel's Golani Brigade, was one of 15 soldiers investigating what they believed...
