Good to see other side of Israel issue – New York News


Congratulations to The Gazette for printing the July 8 Washington Post story about Israel’s destruction of a solar plant in a Palestinian village, and to The Washington Post for running the story in the first place.

Such shameless grinding down of the more than 2 million Palestinians who live under Israeli military occupation in the West Bank is frequently reported in the media of other countries, including, oddly enough, in Israel itself. But it is most often ignored in the American press, which seems to prefer the odd stabbing of an Israeli by a Palestinian.

Seeing that we American taxpayers underwrite Israel’s 50-year-old occupation to the tune of $3 billion a year, all in support of ethnic privilege, you’d think we’d pay more attention to what exactly it consists of.
