In a recent editorial ("Jerusalem's nightmare," Oct. 17), you state that Israel has become "something that increasingly resembles an apartheid state." You surely must know that Israel is the only democracy in a region dominated by dictatorial regimes that have murdered their own people and repressed human rights and women's rights for centuries.
Israel has made concession after concession to the Palestinians, but it takes both sides wanting peace to achieve peace. The Palestinians continue to incite and commit acts of violence against Israelis, with those injured in the attacks from the Palestinian side then treated in Israeli hospitals. What other nation would give good medical treatment to murderers and attempted murderers such as these?
The plight of the Palestinians is sad, but it is self-inflicted by leadership that does not truly want peace with Israel. Yet The Baltimore Sun insists on calling Israel a nation that "increasingly resembles an apartheid state." I will never give another dime to The Sun and please cancel my subscription immediately. I refuse to allow your publication in my home any longer.
