Israel's right wing posture

The Sun's recent editorial about Israel's new right wing defense minister Avigdor Lieberman was a refreshing fresh breath of candor and probably an accurate prediction of things to come under this new extremist cabinet member ("Netanyahu's loose cannon," May 30).

But you fail to make the connections other than to blame Mr. Lieberman himself for his policies. There was not a word of rebuke about the man who appointed Mr. Lieberman, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Nor, of course, would you allow a peep of criticism of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and its puppet-in-chief Hillary Clinton who still has blood on her hands from the Iraq War.

As long as these forces support Mr. Lieberman, there will never be even a gesture toward peace. Even Donald Trump said there needed to be an "even-handed" U.S. policy toward Middle East negotiations, but that only elicited the scorn of Ms. Clinton who acted as if The Donald wanted to bomb Israel. This is enough to make one long for the good old days when the late Ariel Sharon tried to stop Israel's settlements on the West Bank and, of course, he was no peacenik either.
