Palestine was a paradise

By

In Palestinian war, humanity the real victim

This is in reaction to the editorial “Victims too” (7/14/14). Yes, it is really a sad affair, this “Palestinian slaughter.” But it seems like the whole world approves of this.

Truly tragic event for humanity.

Ransoming Israel’s chance for peace

By

The exchange of prisoners between enemies is often a prelude to political reconciliation. Unfortunately, the recent exchange between Israel and Hamas, in which the Islamist organization gained the lion’s share of more than 1,000 prisoners in exchange for the Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, does not augur well for the chances of an Israeli-Palestinian peace.
