Thanks to The News Tribune for the excellent op-ed by Linda Frank (6-3) on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. More media attention should be directed towards making the public aware of the seriousness of this conflict. Until a way to solve it can be found we cannot hope for peace in the Middle East.
Our foreign policy must reflect a better understanding of the Muslim hatred of Israel and Israel’s desire to have a secure homeland, and then must confront the ubiquitous power of the Israeli-backed lobbyists in Congress. Our wars are not going to fix anything – we must first address this basic problem.
Why exactly do we keep supporting Israel over Palestine?
