  • The Palestinian Catch-22

    Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinians face a Catch-22. As the Sun's editorial, "Mr. Abbas' mission" (Feb. 13) points out, a unity government between Mr. Abbas' Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and Hamas in Gaza is a necessary precondition 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...
  • Don't blame Israel for the failure of talks with the Palestinians

    Regarding Andrew C. Mills' letter on Israel and Iran, he is correct thatIsrael's long-term security can be achieved only with a comprehensive settlement with the Palestinians ("Israel's future hinges on compromise, not attacks," Feb. 11). An attack on...

    U.N. ploy could benefit Israel
    In September, the Palestinian Authority of Mahmoud Abbas plans to bring a statehood petition to the United Nations. The initial plan is to bring it to the Security Council for approval. If the U.S. vetoes it, as expected, the PA will then bring it to...
  • President Obama caves in to Israel — again

    The recent article about President Barack Obama's speech at the United Nations ("Obama stands by Israel at U.N.," Sept. 22 ) should have been headlined, "Obama caves in to Israel again." President Obama's vow to veto Palestinian statehood at the U.N. is...
  • The Sun falls for Palestinian spin

    The Sun reports ("Bid for statehood may end; Possible deal delays U.N. debate, retains aid to Palestinians," September 21) that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas "decided to approach the U.N. this year [for statehood recognition] because of...
  • 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...
  • Israel paid a steep price for Sgt. Shalit's release

    The gaunt appearance of Israeli army Sgt. Gilad Shalit after five years illegal detention in Gaza without a single visit by the Red Cross or other international humanitarian organization threw into sharp contrast the full faces and healthy physiques of...
  • Muslim leaders have given us reason to be wary

    Rachel Airey's letter to the editor ("Disgusted by anti-Muslim bigotry" May 16 ) says this "ignorance and prejudice sickens her and makes her ashamed of this country." She says "It's even more sad when polls proclaim that many citizens are wary of Islamic...

    Rabbi Michael Lerner: Fairness for both sides key to Middle East peace
    President Barack Obama is reported to have said to his advisors last week that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would never make the concessions necessary for a peace accord. Well, we in the peace movement say, "duhhh." If the president really...
