  • What peace with the Palestinians requires

    Palestinians have been firing dozens of rockets from Gaza into southern Israel recently, hitting cities and civilians ("Palestinians to seek elevated status in U.N.," Nov. 13). Yet not much attention has been given to the fact that Israeli families who...
  • Obama goes soft on Iran — again

    After listening to speeches during the opening session of the United Nations General Assembly, I concluded that both U.S. President Barack Obama and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad do not take each other seriously. Mr. Obama repeated his old...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • Account of Gaza war misleads through omissions

    Commentary writer Laila El-Haddad feels "betrayed" by Judge Richard Goldstone's repudiation of the central allegation of the U.N.'s Goldstone commission investigation. Turns out the Israelis, as they said all along, did not intentionally target...

    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...

  • 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...
  • 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...
  • Gaza flotilla was not a peaceful aid convoy

    The Sun's wording in "Report criticizes Netanyahu's handling of Gaza flotilla raid" (June 14) obscures elements influencing Israel's actions criticized by the Israeli state comptroller. While the article recognizes that the flotilla was "determined to...
  • Mr. Abbas' mission

    Mr. Abbas' mission
    Signs of movement toward renewed cooperation between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas have Israeli officials on edge. Israel considers Hamas a terrorist organization committed to its destruction and has shunned negotiations. In the wake of...
